It's been an eventful first year for the brewery in Seven Points, having already undergone an expansion back in January with the addition of two 20 bbl fermenters and a 20 bbl bright tank. They also got their canning line up and running shortly thereafter, with Lawn Ranger appearing at retail in 4-packs of 16 oz cans in March. Just recently, they've started delivering Elliot's Phoned Home Pale Ale in the same format, and soon they'll round out their year-round offerings by packaging Scruffy's Smoked Alt for release in August.
Each of these beers will be on-tap during the anniversary party, along with their Belgian Dubbel (originally released during the mid-winter timeframe) and a soon-to-be summer seasonal called Repartee (a Belgian-style witbier). Joining these will be Gone-A-Rye, a special anniversary brew stylistically described as a rye double IPA. According to Head Brewer Damon Lewis, this beer will incorporate Bravo and Apollo hop varieties, and will finish out with an ABV of around 8.5%.
Tickets for Cedar Creek's Inaugural Anniversary Event are $25 in advance, or $35 at the door. Admission includes a souvenir glass, meal ticket and six brewery samples. Food will be provided by Dutchman's Smokehouse, and there will be live music from the band Full Circle Rising.
