SIOUX FALLS, SD (KELO) – A local brewery has added a new location, expanding its footprint beyond downtown Sioux Falls.

Remedy Brewing Company has found a second home.

“We’re going to be 21+ here, but it’s more of an adult playground. We have pool tables, darts, oversized beer pong,” said Matt Hastad, co-owner of Remedy Brewing Company.

Remedy at 611 recently opened along West Avenue, south of Sioux Falls Stadium.

“There’s a lot going on in the area, especially when it comes to the summer with the softball leagues, with the volleyball leagues, so we want to be a place where people can go before, after, game with the PREMIER Center if you’re going to a concert stop here and have a few drinks before heading there,” Hastad said.

Remedy owns the 88,000 square foot building and occupies just over 20,000 square feet including the brewery which opened in 2019.

“There are definitely a lot of new things we can do here, especially with the different vibe, the different crowd. We’re not downtown anymore,” said Donovan Minor, Events Coordinator.

Events Coordinator Donovan Minor says the new space is a game-changer when it comes to hosting events.

“Our downtown patio plays a huge role in booking private events and hosting large parties during the summer. Unfortunately, winter kind of shuts that down, so having a larger venue, which can hosting people during the winter, and just all year round, is really exciting,” Minor said.

And with tens of thousands of square feet available, the possibilities are endless.

“A year from now, two years from now, things will just be different than they were before and that’s just exciting for me,” Minor said.

“We have a lot of plans, a lot of future growth, things that we want to do here to make a really good beer mecca for people,” Hastad said.

Remedy at 611 is currently open From Thursday to Sunday.

Orléans’ first micro-brewery celebrated its five years of activity with a celebration on Saturday, September 17.

Stray Dog Brewing Company opened in July 2017 and Marc Plante, one of the East Brewery’s co-founders, said Sam Laprade’s show on September 13 that he and co-owner Justin MacNeill had this passion to open a small business in the community they grew up in and love.

The pair both started independently as home brewers and met through a fellowship of other local zymurgy enthusiasts in the Ottawa area. Their shared passion for well crafted beer, cool indie music and the desire to pursue a dream.

“We took the risk to figure out what the reward would be,” Plante said. “Life is too short to ask ‘what if’.”

Plante said that as they turn five years old, it’s hard to believe due to the fact that the business partners lost two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, where they were doing their best to deliver. their services and deliver beer to their loyal customers.

“We’re just happy to celebrate with a community that’s been really supportive of us,” Plante said.

The celebration included shows, food, activities and of course beer, for people to enjoy.

In 1800, when Toronto was a small garrison town called York, a man named Robert Henderson began serving bitter English to redcoats and British civilians. He undoubtedly had a loyal following: at the time, he was the only master brewer in town.

Today, Henderson’s eponymous brewery caters to a very different type of clientele. With a location in the west end of town, Henderson Brewing Company offers a host of proven beers and a monthly Ides series of small-batch beers.

Steve Himel, Henderson’s managing director, who once wanted to join the clergy, spent 25 years in the world of marketing and consumer consulting before realizing that his first job after high school – as a as a brewer at the Don Valley Brewing Company – was to be his future. . In 2015, he co-founded Henderson Brewing Company and is now firmly entrenched in Toronto’s independent beer scene.

Himel spoke to The Star about his journey from clergy to craft brewing, his first drink, and the nondrinker-shaped elephant in the tavern:

In 1987, you decided to become a rabbi. Here you are, at the head of a brewery. What happened?

One of the things that really intrigued me about clergy, whatever it is, is that it is human labor. You help people find answers or a place of comfort. It was really intriguing to me. As a young man, I took some support from the clergy I had access to. I felt like he was someone who had answers when you didn’t. I followed this path, briefly, and realized that in fact, I was an atheist. So it wasn’t going to work.

Not too far from this discovery, I also discovered beer. I could understand that, certainly for us in Canada, and for most western countries, sharing a beer with friends is a very intimate and personal moment. That’s what got me into the beer business. For a lot of people I know, going out for a beer is a special time for them to be 100% who they are, in a place they want to be, with people they want to be with.

I think for people who don’t have that moment, they will find it in church or in synagogue or in mosque with their community, sharing things that are important to them.

You became a brewer at the Don Valley Brewing Company right out of high school. Are you old enough to drink?

We were in grade 13 at the time and it made me 19, at least, when I started there. In fact, I remember my first beer. When I was a child, my mother made sure we had beer in the fridge whenever my grandfather came. The beer he wanted to drink was Heineken. After six months when I realized that when he came he had a beer, I asked him if I could taste it.

I remember it was the worst thing I have ever tasted in my life. As a youngster, your taste buds are really sweet. So taste a hoppy European lager – holy smokes. I hated beer. But the seed had been planted, and I recognized the importance of this thing, this drink. Later in life, when it came time to drink beer again – probably in a park with my friends – I understood its meaning. It was easier to fall in love with it.

Toronto’s craft beer scene is quite large today. What made you feel Henderson Brewing could compete?

What prompted my partner, Adin Wener, and I to open this brewery was that we thought craft beer was just getting too crafty. We really wanted to take a step back, almost, and bring the ethos of craftsmanship – which for me is handmade, quality ingredients, real care – to more standard recipes.

We’ve seen breweries push the boundaries of all kinds of flavors, whether it’s adding fruit, hops or funk. We thought there was an opportunity for a brewery to stick to the basics. Sometimes people blame us for that, because we don’t make the most interesting beers in the world. But that’s kind of what we want to do.

When you worked in marketing, one of your clients was Heineken. Did you learn anything about beer marketing from working with them?

When it comes to marketing any brand and especially beer, the key is to communicate what makes you different. One of the things we’ve tried to stick to here at Henderson is to say we make more consistent beers. I always struggle with that word, because no one ever wants to be regular. But when people walk in and they’ve already been a little burnt out from the craft beer and we’re giving them a great experience and they say — “Wow, that tastes like beer!” That’s what we’re trying to do.

Henderson Brewing releases a new type of beer every month, your Ides series. Where do you find inspiration for this?

When we started, we wanted to focus on quality and consistency and really try to stick to our core brands. We wanted Henderson’s Best to always taste the same. But there is a certain monotony in working on the same thing all the time. So we decided to do a monthly beer series and take inspiration from the city we live in.

We now take stories from the GTA, but really from Ontario as a whole, and sit down once a month with our brewing team and say — how about a beer on so and so? What kind of beer would that be? How would that reflect the story? What can we do to make it interesting?

One of my favorites was when Honest Ed’s closed. We sat around the table and decided the beer would be less on Honest Ed’s and more on Honest Ed. We decided that if there was going to be Honest Ed’s beer, it would be the cheapest beer you could manufacture. So that’s what we decided to do. We searched for recipes for the cheapest types of beer. You use as little grain as possible and just put sugar in it to ferment it.

So we took it a step further. We drove a truck to Honest Ed’s, bought a pallet of sugar off the shelves and put it in beer. We ended up with this very cheap and cheerful, tasty, yet incredibly simple beer. It brought the story to life.

You joked about living on airplanes for 25 years before starting a brewery. Considering all the work it takes to start a small business, do you now live in the dining room?

Totally. I joke about living on airplanes, but I really did. I was a consultant. I was flying all over the world working on different brands and products. I enjoyed this for a while, but it’s so great to come to the same place every day. There is a smell of brewing that attracts me incredibly. It’s like the smell of chocolate or coffee. When the beer is first boiled, there is a sweet, bready smell that is just fantastic.

I also really enjoy – and I think my partner Adin would agree – seeing people sitting in our bar, sharing a beer with their friends and chatting. That, to me, is an incredible reward. When things are tough or when you’re having a bad day, looking outside and seeing that you’ve created a space and a product that facilitates happy conversation between a group of people is like a victory in life.

So you created a beer brand with Rush. How did it happen exactly?

I was walking my dog ​​on the West Toronto Railpath, just outside the brewery, when the phone rang. Someone said – and I’ll simplify the conversation: “Is that Steve from Henderson? It’s Rush. Are you interested in having a beer with us? That’s really how it started, over five years ago now.

Basically, they thought it would be nice to do a beer with a small brewery like ours. We tried a bunch of different things and found out what they liked about beer and what they wanted to do with this project. It was fantastic.

Initially, we were concerned that it was just a branding issue, but that hasn’t been the case at all. It’s been really collaborative and fun, and I really enjoyed it.

Overall, Canadians are drinking much less than 20 years ago. Many people don’t drink alcohol at all. Can Henderson Brewing seduce them?

This is my favorite question. The front page of the Toronto Star’s business section recently ran an article about how Molson Coors is getting into seltzers. I think I read that their beer per capita went from 270 liters in 1972 to 60 liters. But here’s the thing. Henderson makes an incredibly small amount of the total amount of beer Ontarians drink. We represent 0.01% of this volume. We don’t even aspire to reach one percent of that volume.

I think small breweries like Henderson are the future of beer, where we make a local, high-quality, artisanal product. It’s where people go when they want to drink beer. When you look at a brand like Molson Canadian: yes, they had a massive downsizing, but they had a huge proportion of drinkers. These people may not be drinking anymore. We have so few customers in comparison. For us, it’s not really a problem. You just have to recognize that people who still drink beer want to drink quality local beer.

This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Sad news for the British Columbia beer scene today, as Green Leaf Brewery quietly closed its doors and ceased operations.

The brewery, which has been in operation since 2013, had a prime location at Lonsdale Quay with a waterside patio.

It specialized in microbreweries of beer, kombucha and ginger ale.

Green Leaf was at the forefront of BC’s microbrewery movement, opening up early in what would become a great beer boom.

It has yet to share the news on any of its social media channels or on its website, but in a note to Dished, Green Leaf confirmed it was “unfortunately forced to close by our landlord as he did not renew our lease”.

The owner of the brewery is Lonsdale Quay, which is currently “being revitalized”, according to its website.

Dished has contacted Quay North Urban Development, the company that owns and operates Lonsdale Quay Market, for comment on the closure of Green Leaf Brewing Company.

Taylor Mathiesen, president of Quay North Urban Development, offered a different version of the story, which contradicts the reason for Green Leaf’s closure.

Mathiesen had the following to say: “The statement provided by the brewery is not true. The landlord did not have the opportunity to discuss the terms of a renewal because the tenant had unresolved issues that prevented discussion. »

“The tenant chose to close the business of their own accord with the issues remaining unresolved. For the moment, the owner has not terminated the lease.

Dished will update this story as the closure is revealed.

ROCHESTER, Minn.-Little Thistle Brewing Company geared up for the new school year by hosting its second school giving drive on Monday.

Brewer Steve Finnie said teachers got $2 off their drink, as did non-educators who donated school supplies.

Some of the donated supplies include markers, notebooks and other writing utensils.

Finnie said the brewery first thought of the idea in 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We know a lot of people were stressed out and working beyond their means. The teachers was just one of them or the educators so we did it then and I have a 13 year old and 16 in the Rochester district here so we appreciate all that they do for our kids We did this a few years ago in the middle of the pandemic and I think we have tried to do this every year We have a lot of friends who are also teachers and educators,” Finnie said.

Some of those teachers expressed their thanks to the brewery for the donation campaign, according to Finnie.

“I think they really, really appreciate it, you know. It’s important to recognize people in our community who do a great job and I think they’re very happy to get discounts on beer and to also come to the community gathering space and be appreciated. So, yeah, that’s been great,” Finnie said.

Rochester Public Schools begin their new year on September 6.

Fans of lucha libre, beer, and Mexican food are in luck — a new restaurant and brewery has combined the three to bring fun decor, unique drinks, and tasty bites to Cathedral City.

Luchador Brewing Company on East Palm Canyon Drive, near the Coachella Valley directory, officially opened on Monday, August 29. This is the second location for co-owners Brent Miller and Jaime Benson, with the original opening in Chino Hills just before departure. of the pandemic about 2 and a half years ago.

Miller, who has 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry, said he knew he wanted to do something different and incorporate Hispanic culture into his new business.

Then the idea came on a Monday, after a weekend with a friend where they watched the 2006 film Nacho Libre.

“It just clicked that luchador was it,” Miller said.

Lucha libre refers to Mexican professional wrestling and luchadores refers to its wrestlers. Miller described how he grew up watching it and loved the mystery behind luchadores, who wear masks to cover their faces.

Custom-made luchador masks are on display at the Luchador Brewing Company in Cathedral City.

Now both Luchador Brewing Company locations pay homage to lucha libre in name and decor.

Its logo is a luchador, and its walls feature artwork of masked wrestlers, posters advertising matches and movies, and other wrestling imagery. TV screens throughout the restaurant show wrestling matches and movies on repeat.

“They were making movies in the ’50s, like Elvis (Presley) was making his movies,” Miller said. “These guys were Elvis in Mexico.”
