Tonight: Gathering Place Brewing

Does anyone know what a fidget cube and Gathering Place Brewing have in common? While it’s true that they are both great at helping you pass time, the answer we were looking for is they were both the product of Kickstarter campaigns.

Thankfully, unlike the fidget cube, Gathering Place has remained relevant since about February 2017 when 222 people believed in an award-winning homebrewer, Joe Yeando. Since that time, Gathering Place, located in Riverwest has been dedicated to the community donating at least 1% of profits each quarter and $1 from every beer sold on Thursdays to a local non-profits.

Gathering Place aspires “to craft vibrant and unique beers that reflect the vibrant and unique community we call home.” Their brewery is cozy with assorted games to allow you to really interact with your friends and perhaps make you realize, you’re not *quite* as smart as you thought you were. (Really! Try the Trivial Pursuit!) To see their full beer list, upcoming events and learn more visit:

Price: $10 for members; $15 for non-members (ask about our lifetime membership, a one-time $10 fee!)

Next week: Bock Beer


Bock beers are lagers. Their appearance is darker and they possess more robust malty flavor than traditional lagers. This beer is bottom fermented and requires extra time in cold storage to smooth out the intense flavors that result from this. Bock beers were traditionally brewed by German monks; they were often consumed during religious festivals and during times of fasting, particularly Lent. That extra cold starage time means that bocks are often started in the fall to be enjoyed in the spring.

There are multiple styles of bock including:
Maibock or Helles bock – which is a lager brewed to Bock strength
Doppelbock – a stronger version of the traditional
Eisbock – where a Doppelbock is partially frozen and ice is removed to concentrate the alcohol content and flavor
Weizenbock – utilizing wheat instead of barley.

So what’s with the goat? Turns out, Bock beers were first brewed in the Northern German town of Einbeck in the 14th century. As the beer traveled south to Munich around the 17th century, the Bavarians misunderstood their northern brethren and heard “ein bock” translating to billy goat in German. The name and the goat have been around since.
