It’s hard to believe we’ve been at it for five years now. It’s even harder to believe we managed to throw an amazing 1,200 person birthday party for ourselves without anyone getting injured, arrested, or thrown up on. Well, except for Jonathan, who almost threw up on himself. But that’s a story for another day.
You’re probably familiar with our origin story–Friday morning Bible study turned Monday evening homebrewing hobby turned crazy successful (and super modest) craft brewery. We’re pretty proud of how far we’ve come, and every year we like to celebrate that progress with Tie One On, our anniversary party.
This year’s event was SO MUCH FUN. We had more than 30 different beers on tap, including 10 casks designed by our employees, a two-year vertical of Bourbon Barrel Drafty Kilt, a Maple Bourbon Barrel Wee Heavy, and our Tie 5 On Wild IPA brewed specially for our anniversary. And to help soak up some of that boozy goodness, we had Doggy Dogg slinging wieners, Meating Street BBQ serving up pulled pork and brisket, and Bhojanic stuffing tacos with chicken vindaloo perfection.
We’re so honored to be your hometown brewery, and the fact that we can throw a party that so many people actually want to come to is still totally surreal to us. We couldn’t do it without you, so thanks. And if you didn’t make it to Tie One On 2016, you’ve got 11 months to build up your tolerance for next year.
