Stone Brewing And Chaos Mountain Tap Takeovers This Week, And A Couple More Notes For Monday…

Support for Stone Brewing to open their East Coast brewery in Roanoke continues to gain momentum, as the Facebook group promoting the idea “Stone Brewing: Yes Roanoke Is Worthy” reached two thousand “likes” in the last day or so.  Among the events the page is helping promote is a Stone tap takeover, being held tomorrow night at the Wasena City Tap Room (May 21) from 6 to 9pm.  From a post on that very page, the beers apparently scheduled to make an appearance are Stone’s classic IPA, Imperial Russian Stout, Stone’s new Saison, and their Sprocket Bier, which is a take on a kolsch style beer, including rye and darker malts, making for a pitch as night, slightly ashy, slightly citrusy, and finally, slightly spicy (think very light pepper) tasting beer.  It’s well done and makes for an easy drinking beer as well.

Also on the calendar, Chaos Mountain Brewing will be featured at a tap takeover event at Blue 5 this Friday, May 23rd.  Coming right off the heels of releasing a new beer this past week, a Biere de Garde, Chaos Mountain Brewing mentioned via their Facebook page that two more new entries to their line-up will be likely debuting this week.  Such news is definitely worth a big Cheers to Brew Master Will Landry and crew, as new beer from our local breweries is always worth celebrating.

Big Lick Brewing continues to post updates on their steady progress to open in downtown Roanoke.  It looks like the brewery is hoping to be open by June or July, and have recently posted a few photos online of recent work done to their location.  Follow their Facebook page here!

Not to be passed over, this past weekend, a beer from a brewery that’s a personal favorite of mine was added to Blue 5’s taps. “Killer Kolsch”, from Champion Brewing in Charlottesville, is still on tap at the downtown restaurant.  Here’s hoping that this is a sign of many more of Champion’s solid tasting beers will be heading our way in the near future.
