A growler for your thoughts! (on the new Big Rock Urban)

Screen Shot 2015-05-24 at 12.56.04 AM

This has been a long time coming for the Big Rock crew. (and I’ve only been part of this kick ass family for 8 months… There are people that have been waiting YEARS for this place to open!)

What an exciting time to be around – holy smokes! Craft beer lovers out there… has anyone noticed HOW many new products Big Rock has come out with in the last two months alone?? I believe the number you are looking for is 6! In 2 months!! 4 new beers – ESB

Who does that!?! 6 products in 2 months.


We’ve got another half a dozen coming out in the next couple months as well! What an awesome time to be part of this place!! (and stay tuned for what is coming!)

What I want to know though, is who’s been to the new Brewery at 310 West 4th?

The doors opened at the end of March, but the official ‘Grand opening’ was April 9th. A feature ‘pallet wall’ was made for the event and was filled with Big Rock occasions, important events and people (including our Late Founder Ed Mcnally!), and a super fun beer bottle wheel.

The brewery is so much more than a place to just taste the beer. You can go in and grab a growler fill in the awesome retail space… Or if you’ve got more time and want to really check things out you can hop on a tour and see the whole space! The brew house in the back is prettttty impressive — something our brewmaster Jody is quite proud of to say the least!

Lastly, at some point or another, it’s CRUCIAL to go in and grab a bite at the eatery. Chef has put together some really incredible and unique food options that are a must try. You can grab a flight, a pint, or a deliciously crisp Rock Creek Cider. And if you’re not a beer or a cider person (shame on you!) there is a full bar as well, offering cocktails or wine as well.

If you HAVE been to BRU Eatery, let me know what you thought! What was your favourite beer?

If you have yet to go, leave a comment telling me which beer you want to try when you DO go! Just for commenting, you could win yourself a growler fill (or a 6 pack) of your choice!!

Winner will be drawn Thursday May 28th!
