Another successful season is almost over… can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday we were getting ready for the brewery opening in May! The last day for the season will be December 23rd, 2018. We will be open again in the spring (usually around the last week of April or first week of May), so keep your eyes peeled for that! Thank you all for such a wonderful 2018 season, including all the wonderful memories down in the brewery.
On a sadder note, this is my last blog post for the foreseeable future for the Growler. In case you missed my post in August, I am in the middle of my first year of a PhD program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. At the end of the summer, I sadly said goodbye to the Village and the historic brewery to move down to North Carolina to begin school at UNC. I have been continuing this blog in my absence, but with this post my queue schedule is now empty.
Thank you to all my wonderful coworkers (who are the easiest people in the world to bond with), Ed our former brewmaster and my best pal every weekend down in the brewery, and of course to all the visitors who challenged me with their questions and entertained me with their own personal stories and anecdotes about beer. I will never forget the couples who got married here and came down to visit, the guests who discovered a new type of beer that didn’t know they loved, and the regulars who would remember me and want to catch up like old friends. Who knows, maybe one day I will be back in the brewery once again!
And of course, a final thanks to all the readers! I hope you enjoyed my little posts about beer, delivered to you faithfully every Friday. I am not sure yet who may take the reigns of this blog, but i’m sure they will do a fantastic job.
Thank you all and have a very happy holidays!
Love all the way from beautiful Chapel Hill, North Carolina
