27 Oct Elm St. Brewing Celebrates One Year and Previews New Kitchen on Nov. 18
The Muncie craft beer scene is maturing rapidly. While the oldest brewery in town is just five years old (Wolves’ Head Brewing at the Heorot), the past three years or so has seen the addition of New Corner Brewing (2014) and The Guardian Brewing (2015).
Craft beer bars in Muncie are older, with the Fickle Peach, The Heorot, and Savages having bee around for years. But new additions, like Scotty’s Brewhouse (2015), Thr3e Wise Men (2016), and Books and Brews-Muncie (2017) have made the scene even deeper.
Elm St. Brewing (519 N. Elm Street) joined the group in November of 2016, and is now ready to celebrate its one-year anniversary on the 18th. From 2 pm until 1 am the next morning, the beers will be pouring and the new kitchen will be previewing its menu. Evolving from a taproom to a full brewpub has taken time, but Bill, Tyler, and Eric wanted to be sure everything was done correctly.
This ticketed event will include items from the quick bites menu from the new kitchen from 2-5, and then a full buffet previewing the menu from 5-9. Afterward, the quick bites will be brought back out until midnight. To wash it all down, the Elm St. beers will be flowing, with special releases throughout the day.
Admission will include two tickets for full pours of Elm Street beer, while mug club members can use the tickets for mug fills. Elm St. Rewards Club members with VIP tickets will be admitted at noon for a two-hour preview of the beers and the full preview menu. Tickets for the culinary preview only are also available. Live music, first from Annette Miller, and then from Cliff Ritchey will take place in the bar from 5-10:30.
Elm St. has become a very popular place in their first year, with many loyal customers. Come out and help them celebrate their successful opening and help them in the path to full brewpub. Tickets are available here, and regular menu service at the brewpub will begin on November 20.
