Tap Handle Close to Home

As a fledgling brewery, we are really happy to have the support of any restaurant, bar or other establishment that decides to pour our beer.  We think it means that they like the beer and want to support a local company.  It also means we get another spot where people get to try our creations. 

That said, we get a lot of requests to come to the brewery and try the whole line-up of beers.  It is fairly common for breweries to have a tap room or brewpub attached to show-off the range of beers.  We didn't have space for that and putting aside a long discussion of the joys or not-joys of operating restaurants, we just wanted to focus on making beer and supporting those who were pouring it.  We probably will backtrack on this and do some kind of tasting area down the road, but for now, we have the next best thing. 

We share our building with lots of tenants, but one of them is the Rocket Bakery on First and Cedar.  They have carried beer and wine for quite a while, but all in bottles up until this week.  Now they are the happy owners of a new draft beer set-up and started pouring just last weekend.

Starting line-up - Two River City, Selkirk Abbey and Iron Horse

Makes me thirsty!
You can see that they are doing pints and growlers.  As an added bonus, they also have River City Red growlers for sale, just in case you don't have one in your collection yet.

Stop by, have a beer and let them know you appreciate their support of good beer and local beer.
