Draught Works to Hold Community Appreciation Day

I was surprised to receive an email recently from Draught Works Brewery’s co-owner and brewmaster Jeff Grant announcing their customer appreciation day to celebrate Draught Works’ first year in business.  What? Haven’t they been open for far more than a year?

Indeed it really has been just a year since Draught Works opened its doors.  Now, many Cask Wednesdays, Zimorinos Mondays, Chug for Community Tuesdays  and numerous other events later, Draught Works is hosting a Community Appreciation Day to celebrate its first year in business and honor and thank their “tremendous local support.”

The event takes place on Saturday, October 20, 2012, from 12:00 to 9:00 p.m. Draught Works will be serving up a free brewers’ grain-fed pig roast (3 pigs, while they last) along with door prizes, live music from The Best Westerns (from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.) and a special cask tapping of Vanilla Bean Gwin Du Oatmeal Stout.  All told, Draught Works will have a whopping 11 beers on tap/cask.

Draught Works Brewery is at 915 Toole Ave. in Missoula in an old warehouse they’ve magically transformed into one of the best brewery tap-room vibes in the state. With a comfortable atmosphere, the best outdoor patio in the city, and frequent live music, it’s a great place to enjoy craft beer.

P.S.  Bayern Brewing, if you’re reading, take a cue from Draught Works. It’s rather odd to charge $5 for fans to attend your anniversary party.
