Rockford Brewing Co. takes Beer Hounds for a Walk

Rockford Brewing Co. takes Beer Hounds for a Walk

Debuting 6 taps for a pub crawl on the busiest bar night of the year is both a stroke of genius and a little insane, but Rockford Brewing Co. was able to pull it off with style. My friends and I met up with RBC’s own Seth Rivard at an information booth / open house at the brewery showcasing great progress toward the December 20th Grand Opening date. Pint glasses, T-shirts, growlers, and various merchandise were available along with flyers showcasing the beers and a map of participating pubs for the crawl.
