Hellbender Brewing Company
It’s hard not to love a brewery named after a big, gnarly salamander. Hellbender also scores points for its sustainable mash press filter brewing system—which reduces water, grain, and energy use. A handful of rotating selections are usually on tap with its core trio. Swing by for a visit Wednesday through Sunday, and check the brewery’s social media pages for schedule updates on entertainment like live music and food trucks.
Beers to try: Even the biggest hop hunters will appreciate the clean, refreshing Bare Bones Kolsch. It’s among the best of its kind in the city and is crisp and drinkable while still being complex and well-balanced in its hop and malt profiles.
