Former Future Brewing, which officially opened on February 1, celebrated its grand opening last weekend, complete with food trucks and board games -- in addition to five beers on tap, all embracing the idea of modern spins on older styles. In fact, that's the theme of the entire brewery. Westword photographer Danielle Lirette was there and brought back a slide show featuring Former Future's opening weekend.
