It’s about damn time. We’ve been licking our chops at the thought of a 3 Picket Porter since Crooked Fence Brewing started dropping Facebook hints in September of 2011. Now, five thirsty months later, the new Garden City craft brewery is finally ready to open its doors.
On Saturday, Feb. 25, customers can sample brewer Kris Price’s handiwork, which includes signature beers like the Rusty Nail pale ale, the Hole Wheat American hef and the aforementioned porter. The opening party runs from 3-9 p.m. at the brewery’s digs, located at 5242 Chinden Blvd. The Boise Fry Co. mobile food truck will be on hand slinging frites, and Vinyl Preservation Society will spin some rare wax from 5-8 p.m.
But if you can’t wait that long to get crooked on Crooked, there are a smattering of upcoming rollout parties, where you can sample the brews at your favorite local watering holes.
