Friends and Neighbors...
It has been a crazy three weeks since WoodGrain Brewing Co. opened its doors, and the reception we have received has been nothing short of humbling. We have made new friends and renewed relationships with old ones, and the results have been amazing.
Saturday Steve, Jason and Robert all participated in the Monks House of Ale Repute Beervana event. This was WoodGrain's first official beer event, and everything could not have been more perfect. Jerry and Karen work so hard to put on such a great event, and everyone in attendance was treated to a truly high-quality, beer event.
This Friday (Oct. 2) marks a benchmark in a partnership with another downtown business. Several weeks ago the gentlemen from Coffea and WoodGrain sat down to explore future partnerships and collaborations in both beer and business. The beer came first, and on October 2, during Downtown Sioux Falls' First Friday Art & Wine Walk Coffea and WoodGrain will premier Chayote Wheat, the first Beer/Coffee collaboration between the Roasterie and the Brewery.
Chayote Wheat features Coffea's very own Costa Rica Finca Chayote blended with WoodGrain's house American Wheat beer. The surprisingly light body of the American Wheat allows the complexities and nuances of this aromatic and pleasant coffee to shine through.
It has been a great few weeks for WoodGrain, and we can't wait to see what the coming months bring. Thank you to all who have encouraged us, worked with us, and most of all, supported us.
Steve, Ryan, and Jason
