Gunbarrel Brewing Signs Lease, Plans Opening
January 15, 2017
By: Jeffrey Steen
Though word is already out about the launch of Gunbarrel Brewing in 2017, there's more to report: The new 3,200-square-foot taproom and neighborhood gathering space will open its doors this spring with a healthy helping of beer styles, both traditional and innovative.
Among the early offerings will be a double IPA, a saison made with a unique yeast strain, several stouts, and various other styles. Jamie Fox, head brewer and co-owner of Gunbarrel Brewing, boasts 16 years of beer-making experience, which means his beers are likely to be big hits on day one.
Onsite, beer-o-philes can expect live music, food trucks, pool, darts, and an outdoor beer garden strung with lights and dotted with comfy tables and cornhole. The space will be flexible enough for a casual afternoon or evening beer, or for private parties and celebrations.
In order to make this dream a reality, Co-Owners Marie and Jamie Fox have launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign with a goal of $27,000. That money will be used for finishing touches and "personalization" of the taproom. In return, contributors will receive various merchandise, gift cards, and Mug Club perks—the latter being a monthly 16oz beer for life.
Gunbarrel Brewing is located at 7088 Winchester Circle just off Lookout Road on the south side of the Gunbarrel Tech Center. For more information about the brewery, visit gunbarrelbrewing.com.
