It seems like just yesterday rumors began flying around the local craft beer scene that Michael Payne, the mastermind behind Pinglehead Brewing Company, and Preben Olsen, formerly the beer byer or Grassroots Market in Five Points were collaborating on a brewery. In those days the thought was something of a dream; two great beer minds coming together to bring even more great craft beer to the burgeoning Jacksonville scene. The brewery was dubbed Aardwolf and the duo set out to take local tap rooms and beers up a notch.
Tomorrow the realization of the dream celebrates its one-year anniversary with a party at the brewery and several special one-off beers. The party is not for the brewery’s anniversary in a traditional sense, most businesses celebrate one year in operation, Aardwolf has been open for 18 months. The anniversary being celebrated tomorrow is of the brewery serving its own beers for the first time.
To commemorate the occasion, a slew of one-off and special beers have been produced including:
- Apple Cinnamon Ol’ Ale
- Strawberry Habanero Farm to Table Saison
- Lime Ginger Hasselhoffenweisse
- Chocolate Orange Styrofoam Pony
Party attendees can also purchase a special one-year anniversary pint glass.
To keep partiers fed, On The Fly food truck will be serving their regular are in the parking lot.
The party begins at 3:00 p.m. and goes until 11:00 p.m. Aardwolf Brewing Company is located at:
1461 Hendricks Ave.
