23 Dec Twisted K-8 brewery now open in La Porte
La PORTE — Twisted K-8 is now officially open.
Located at 610 Monroe St., Michael and Kate Boshaw decided to open their dream brewery in La Porte as a way to share their love for craft beer with the community.
Last week, numerous representatives from the La Porte County Chamber of Commerce, La Porte Mayor Blair Milo and other community members gathered at the brewery for its ribbon cutting ceremony.
“We are so happy to be opening,” Kate Boshaw said. “We have spent many 16 hour days here, getting ready.”
The brewery has five beers on tap as well as appetizers and sandwiches. The beers run about $4.50 a glass. New growlers are $18 and refills are $12. Other growlers with different brewery labels can be refilled for $13 each.
Patriotic items line the walls as well as a list of names for the Twisted K-8 V.I.P. List. The list consists of members who pay an initial $100 per year to have their own large beer glass for use at the brewery, a T-shirt and bragging rights. Each year will be a $25 renewal fee.
“The beer is very good,” said Robert Morlan, one of the first customers to try the beer on Wednesday. “I like the Slicer Wheat – the best so far. It’s got a good flavor.”
The brewery will be open from 4-9 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays, noon-10 p.m. Saturdays and noon-8 p.m. Sundays.
