Strange Days are upon us...

Last night we had the great opportunity to hang out with Nathan from Strange Days Brewing and let us tell you, he is one really great fella!

He was busy working away as we walked into the building. They are still in the construction phase of the brewery, but from listening to the ideas of the set up - it is going to be a fun new regular spot!

Strange Days Brewing is made up of three friends - Nathan, Chris, and Alec. They've been friends for awhile and together decided to take the leap. Nathan has been brewing for about 10 years, the other two for about half that time. They've participated in homebrew fests, like Nanobrew, and people really liked what they were putting out.

When they were first trying to decide on a location, they first were looking in Waldo. Which would have been great as we're kind of partial, it is our neighborhood too ;) But, with the help of the architect they had been working with, River Market came out ahead.

The building they are in is the old Mueh…

Free your calendars!!

Happy Birthday Anniversary Torn Label & Double Shift

WOW! What a Saturday! Both Torn Label & Double Shift breweries celebrated their two year anniversaries. Festivities started at 12pm and went through closing time.

Torn Label had a couple new beers on tap - Shake Hands w/Danger, Rude Awakening, and Quadtucky. Unfortunately by the time I got there Quadtucky was out.

Shake Hands w/Danger - imperial brown ale w/toasted coconut & coffee. For me, cinnamon came through. However it may have been the toasted coconut.

Rude Awakening - barleywine ale aged in Tom's Town Distilling Co barrels. WOW! Really packed a punch, I drank it sloooooow.

While at Double Shift I only drank a couple of their tappings - Guava Lamp and the Anniversary IPA, but they had several tapped for their anniversary.

Guava Lamp - dry hopped sour ale. Little salty, little sweet, lots of refreshing. Was very nice to drink on the hot day!

Anniversary IPA - IPA. So I am not a fan of IPA's so this review, take with a pinch of salt. It was too bitter for me in the …
