CrossRoads Brewing to Host Weekend Open Houses
Prince George, B.C. – Beer lovers can get a sneak peek of CrossRoads Brewing this weekend.
Located on George Street in the old Tony Roma’s building, it will give people the chance to see the progress they’ve made so far.
The open houses coincide with AleFest and will run Friday from 4-8 p.m. and again Saturday from 2-8 p.m.
“People can come down and see what we’ve done in terms of the manufacturing and the build and construction,” says co-owner Bjorn Butow. “They can also meet Patrick Moore, our head brewer, and Wayne Kitchen, our head chef.”
Originally the goal was to open to the public by Christmas but he says some unforeseen issues have delayed things until late February, early March.
“You know things take a little bit more time, a little bit more money than you think to get to the finish line, but we’re almost there.”
So, what can patrons expect to see once work in the 8,000-square foot space is complete?
“When you walk in you’ll see it’s a very open space with huge windows looking into the manufacturing area so you can observe and watch Patrick and his team making beer,” says Butow.
“We have three large garage doors and in the summer time we’re going to open them up onto our patio. That’s going to be a great space for people to enjoy. And then we’ve got an open concept kitchen where Wayne will be cooking and people can sit and watch the food being made. It’s an immersive space.”
