A Note from our Brewers:
To you, our valued customers; past, present, and future,
We just wanted to say a few words of thanks to everyone as we start getting back to semi-normal operations here at Collision Bend. We have worked hard for the past several weeks to keep a supply of our fresh canned beer to all retailers during the shutdown. We want to thank you all for supporting us by buying our products during this time!
It has been difficult to plan things not knowing when we would all be allowed to open. For instance, you may notice if you stop into the pub, we do not have our C-Town IPA on tap. This is because we canned all fresh C-Town that we brewed to get the freshest product possible to market. For this reason, we did not brew that or any other IPAs for draft at the pub. IPAs, because of the large amount of hops, are the craft brew style with the shortest shelf life. Because we want to offer only the freshest product, the only IPA you will see on tap here is our double IPA, The Taproom Exclusive. This beer was brewed and ready just before the shutdown and we feel that it is still tasting great and are proud to serve it. You’ll start seeing some of our other hoppy beers in the next few weeks as we are ramped up and brewing like crazy! In the meantime, please enjoy some of the lager brews we were able to make during this shutdown. Normally, we do not have the tank space or time to do many lager beers, as they take a bit longer to ferment and need more aging time than ales. We are very excited to be opening with no less than four lager options on draft! We also have a nice variety of other beers ready to go and should be providing the pub with a nice balanced line-up for what we hope to be a great, and safe, summer!
We know each and everyone needs to make decisions at their own pace, and that some folks will be out to see us sooner than others. We respect everyone’s own personal needs on this matter. Please know that, when you are ready, we are here and doing all we can to ensure our staff and our guests safety and that we will have a fresh pint waiting for you!
