I’m heading to my Friday morning meeting with Whitney and I noticed an interesting site:

After checking with the crew, they confirmed my worst fears. It seems that the New Vulcan Ale House won’t be opening after all. No official word on what actually happened though we’re sure that folks around town will be quite upset by this development. You may want to check out their MySpace profile for more information.

Yes, Good People Brewery is up and running. You can grab a pint at the Grill or J. Clyde.

I wonder how much of it had to do with the failure to pass the Free the Hops legislation? Related to this, does anyone know if the 5 Points Grill ever did fire up their brewery again? Last fall there was talk of it, but I haven't checked lately.
