Cedar Creek Brewery’s first anniversary to go ‘A-Rye’
Posted by : June 29, 2013| On :
SEVEN POINTS–You may find this hard to believe, but of the 13 production breweries currently operating in North Texas, nine of them have yet to reach their first anniversary.
Not only that, but no fewer than five of them will be hitting that milestone before the end of the year.
Leading the pack will be Cedar Creek, who’ll be celebrating one year in the brewing business, from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 6.
It’s been an eventful first year for the brewery in Seven Points, having already undergone an expansion back in January with the addition of two 20 barrel (bbl) fermenters and a 20 bbl bright tank.
They also got their canning line running shortly thereafter, with Lawn Ranger appearing at retail in 4-packs of 16 ounce cans in March.
Just recently, they’ve started delivering Elliot’s Phoned Home Pale Ale in the same format, and soon they’ll round out their year-round offering by packaging Scruffy’s Smoked Alt for release in August.
Each of these beers will be on-tap during the anniversary party, along with their Belgian Dubbel (originally released mid-winter) and a soon-to-be summer seasonal called Repartee (a Belgian-style witbier).
Joining these will be Gone-A-Rye, a special anniversary brew stylistically described as a rye double India Pale Ale (IPA).
According to head brewer Damon Lewis this beer will incorporate Bravo and Apollo hop varieties and will finish out with an alcohol by volume (ABV) of around 8.5 percent.
Tickets for Cedar Creek’s inaugural anniversary event are $25 in advance or $35 at the door. Admission includes a souvenir glass, meal ticket and six brewery samples.
Food will be provided by Dutchman’s Smokehouse and there will be live music featuring Full Circle Rising.
Cedar Creek Brewery is located at 244 E. Cedar Creek Parkway in Seven Points.
