Andy Minchow graduated from Holeman & Finch into his own spacious place on Arizona Ave. Seasonally-based Southern fare includes everything from duck salad to a “fried bologna cup”.

This bustling 115,000 square-foot brewhouse in an otherwise stale Industrial Park features an art deco-esque tasting room, a fermentation tank, and bottling space, all of which you can be introduced to on a walking tour of the building. Their signature pale ale, 420, is a ubiquitous drink in the city, and also the name of a music festival Sweewater hosts every year around Earth Day.
