1 Year Anniversary Celebration!!!
We'll be celebrating the 1 Year Anniversary of our opening on September 29, 30, and October 1, with events all weekend long! Mark your calendars now:
- Friday, September 29 - First tapping of our "Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout" - we brewed this dark, strong Imperial Stout last winter, and aged it in a Buffalo Trace bourbon barrel for over 6 months! This beer is delicious, and strong - a whopping 12% ABV, and full of flavor! We'll be tapping it on Friday and serving it up all weekend long!
- Saturday, September 30 - Our friend Sean Huguenin will be playing an acoustic set of classic rock (especially 80s heavy rock) from 12-2 pm here in the brewery! An awesome musician and a great guy, we hope you'll be able to stop out to listen to Sean's music set.
- Sunday, October 1 - The final Bratwurst grill out of the year! Join us for our final "Beer & Brats" grill out from 12-5... the only one of the year that can be enjoyed with a glass of our Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout!
Thanks so much to all of you for your awesome support of our small brewery, it's been an awesome journey so far!
