Oh but before we get to all the good and/or tasty times we should mention that tonight (Wednesday) we will be closed to the general public for our last-ever mug club social. So if you've got a mug, come on out and raise it with us!
But! Amidst all that hoopla, we did still find the time for one last big ol' brett blend and that's Wolf Pup! This one's extra-extra special on account of how it's our last-ever wedding beer and it was blended to celebrate the nuptials of friends-of-the-taproom Steph (who is a former employee, not to be confused with our current employee Steph) and Nate! Anyway that's also available in bottles right now (and will be on draft at some point) and you should come drink some of that too!
And then. Also on Friday we've got live music! This time around we're rockin' on out with Beneath Purgatory, Maidenhead, Dyhanna, and Vantablack and you know it's gonna be a hell of a time, so come on out! Doors are at 6:30, music is at 7:30.
Since then, we've not only increased the amount of beer we can/do make but also added a barrel-aging program and a bottling line (which was originally just a single-head homebrew bottle filler, which was also terrible thank you for asking) and we expanded within the building (which definitely didn't come with a mountain of bullshit from the city, that's for sure) and added another barrel-aging program and then covid happened (which, somehow, also involved a mountain of bullshit from the city**) which indirectly meant we had to get and also learn how to use a canning line and Ben's just been back there making beer and learning with us this entire damn time. I got a little sidetracked there but the point is that the dude's a Fixture around here and he will be sorely missed*** and it's hard to find the right thing to say when we're sending off somebody who's been here the entire damn time (and who has stuck around during some pretty low times) so instead here's a smattering of our favorite pictures we've taken of him over the years. We love you Ben! Thank you.
** The head of the building department threw a tantrum - about us specifically - so hard that it made the newspaper.
