Hogshead Brewery, which has experienced several delays to its planned opening, has begun serving beer. No one from the brewery responded to a request for comment, but the company posted a notice on its Facebook page saying it had soft opened.
Hogshead, which will specialize in cask-conditioned English style ales, is located inside an old '50s-style gas station at 29th Avenue and Utica Street. In a previous interview, co-owner Jeff Kipp said the brewery will keep two cask-conditioned beers on tap at all times, serving them with hand pumps from kegs located in a fifty-degree cask room.
"We hope we get a good neighborhood following so we can keep those fresh," he told Westword. Hogshead plans to have at least three beers on tap at all times, including Lake Lightning, a blonde ale; Gilpin Black Ale, a porter; and Chin Wag ESB.
Westword will update this post if we get any more info about a grand opening.
