So...finally have these things going...hopefully I'm using them correctly
Brewery of the Week: Grandma’s House
March 5, 2015
I have committed myself to several projects and goals over the past year, one of which in particular has been a fun, eye opening and rewarding experience more than any other (and you all will be finding out more about it very soon, how’s that for a tantalizing tid bit….). As part of this undertaking, a few of my good friends and I have been meeting every Sunday at Corvus Coffee to go our plans for dropping some awesome. When heading home from the most recent meetings, I had noticed a rather peculiar store front just around the corner. Something about this place has been enticing, if for no other reason than to find out what the white store front with some sort of green stuff adorning the awning. So when I found myself parking in front of this place with the intent of walking a few doors down for an impromptu latte, my plans changed rather abruptly when reading the sign on the door of Grandma’s House.
To say that this place is just another brewery would be a gross understatement. Not only do they brew their own beer but allow others to use their brewing facilities to create unique brews of their own. An example of how successful this spirit of collaboration can be is the Wunsch that is currently available in their taproom. Brewed by Two Creeks Brewing by way of Grandma’s House, this amber ale has a light caramel quality that perfectly married with the malty tones to create a beer perfect for those who are averse to more pungent varieties. The Grandma’s Broken Spine Dark Strong was also fantastic, with a strong aroma and flavor while staying surprisingly light and easy to drink. These were just a couple in the stable of fantastic beers on the taplist, all of which I would recommend.
The unique qualities of Grandma’s House don’t stop with what’s on tap. The mishmash of un-matching furniture and nick nacks decorating the interior of the taproom are nothing short of awesome. Add to that the Nintendo and Atari, both attached to proper vintage tube televisions and the random assortment of properly knitted blankets and you have a recipe for a kitschy environ in which I would gladly reside.
I can honestly say that Grandma’s House is a place is a place that surpasses most others as somewhere I want to go. From the Tetris tournaments (next one is on the 26th from what I understand) and knit tap handle covers to the really amazing beer, there is nothing about this new favorite that I can take down as a negative. For anyone with a tinge of nostalgia and a discerning pallet I suggest you pay them a visit. Cheers Everyone!
