Bent Brewstillery–a brewer of craft beer and spirits–is celebrating its one-year taproom anniversary from noon to 11 p.m. on August 22.
The Roseville, Minn., brewstillery will host live music all day, with Lavender Daughter playing at 3 p.m., Wavy Maze at 5:30 p.m., and Crooke at 8 p.m.
Meat lovers can revel in sausage flights from Potter’s Pasties, and spirit drinkers can snag a bottle of Bent Anchor, a Poitín, the latest spirit from Bent Brewstillery.
The first 375 ml bottles of Gunner Ghost, the brewstillery’s first spirit, a gin, will be available as well.
Kentucky Road, a whiskey sour, will also mark the launch of the cocktail-flavored beers available only in the taproom.
Our take: I thought I hated gin–but then I had Gunner Ghost. After tasting about five beers from Bent Brewstillery–all amazing–I was blown away by the floral taste of the gin. As someone who has been to a couple of Bent events, I highly recommend the anniversary. The brewstillery knows how to throw a shindig.
