Had a delightful meetup with John Bucher of Tetrad Brewing Co.
today, a calm afternoon before the tumult and shouting of their grand
opening this Saturday (details below). My first visit and I was quite
impressed with the venue... from the sparkling stainless lining one wall
to the pristine tap line to all the repurposed wood, it's a very
pleasant environment in which to hang out and have a beer or three...
actually, come Saturday you can have four of their beers. Good

Enjoy celebrating local breweries' birthdays? Of course you do. Lucky for you, there's one tomorrow, so heads up!
Actually, it's truly amazing how quickly a year goes by if you're having beer-drinking fun. Such is the case with New Groove Artisan Brewery
which turns 2 tomorrow. Last year's party was a real hoot, no reason to
think this year's won't be the same. Go there.
