Bell's "Back Room" Renovation Photos
Construction is proceding nicely in the back room of the Eccentric Cafe, and since we don't have a set date for opening, we thought we'd share some photos of the room for those that are curious as to what it will look like.

We look forward to announcing the official opening in the near future. Stay tuned!

Batch 10,000 Packaged Today
The last in our Batch series is being packaged today and tomorrow. While we are excited to free up some brewing space for other creative projects, the end of the Batch series marks a major milestone for us, and is a little bittersweet being the end of an era. Batch 10,000 reflects our homebrewing roots and was inspired by the the last homebrew of the season. Our owner Larry Bell remembers going through his brewing supplies and making the last homebrew out of whatever malts and hops were left from his brewing months. With this being the motivation behind our last commemorative batch series beer, we combed through the catalogs of many malt and hop suppliers to source 100 different malts, grains, and other fermentables. This is balanced by the addition of 60 different hop varietals between the kettle and dry hopping. The resulting beer presents a deep, chocolate brown hue and offers roasted and caramel notes from the malts mixed with an assertive hop character. Feel free to drink it fresh, or vintage age it as you please.
We lift our glass in appreciation to Bell's drinkers who have helped us reach this moment in our brewery's history. Cheers to you!
