I had my first opportunity last week to swing by and check out the goings-on at Craft and Draft, Columbia’s newest craft beer shop, and I was mightily impressed. A lot of care and thought obviously went into the shop, evident in everything from the shop’s stance of only featuring local beers on its 12 taps to its handcrafted, repurposed wood shelves. So it makes sense that Wednesday night’s meeting of Columbia’s Girls Pint Out will be held there from 6 to 8 p.m., since the meeting is all about crafts. Shanika Pichey of local website Gather and Craft will teach attendees a (free!) class on how to make origami bouquets while they enjoy a pint of that good local beer.
New Columbia Brewery Launches
Speaking of good local beer, you might have had the opportunity to try some new good local beer last week at the Tasty Tomato Festival as Columbia’s third brewery, Swamp Cabbage, debuted its amber ESB. If you missed out, the Boyd Brothers (as I will be referring to Swamp Cabbage’s founders from now on) will be rolling out their full launch lineup next week at several different locations. They kick things off with a launch party Tuesday, July 29, at Craft and Draft. Then they follow it up with growler launches at Morganelli’s on Wednesday, July 30; Green’s on Piney Grove on Thursday, July 31; and Total Wine & More on Saturday, Aug. 2. Why nothing on Friday, you ask? That’s because they’ll be pouring their beers at Brew at the Zoo that night. Launch beers will include the aforementioned ESB as well as a chocolate brown ale and a blonde ale. Here’s to more great Columbia beers in the very near future.
