Former Future's Belgian Wit

Former Future’s Belgian Wit. [From their FB page]

The day is finally upon us where Former Future Brewing Company is officially open for business. Starting today at 2 p.m., you may actually get your hands on their new Oatmeal Saison. That and their amazing Belgian Wit or their Farmhouse IPA (My personal favorite). Take heed – they’re only going to be open Fridays & Saturdays, for now. 

Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew has undergone a collaboration with The Populist for a unique beer that is described as “a light, straw colored, rye ale” that will have different components of it altered throughout the various batches. ‘Version One’ will be available this evening at OMF’s taproom and later on Sunday at The Populist.

Also, it’s Stout Month. That’s always a good option, too.
