AUBURN JOURNAL: Great Turnout as Crooked Lane Brewing Opens
A steady stream of patrons visited Crooked Lane Brewing last Wednesday during its soft opening.
“A soft opening that wasn’t that soft,” said Kirt Braun, one of three owners who include Paul Schilling and Adrian Psuty. “It was extremely busy.”
Over 400 people flowed through the brewery throughout the evening. They gathered inside, on the covered patio or in the community beer garden.
There is a pass-through window to the beer garden, so people can order from outside.
And there is food.
“We have a food truck right on edge of the beer garden,” said Braun. “You don’t even have to put your beer down.”
Crooked Lane offers five brews with more in store. There are lighter ales, IPAs and a robust porter and an oatmeal stout.
Or you may choose honey wheat, made with the local Miller Farm honey, or mandarin ale, with mandarins from Thundering Herd Ranch in Newcastle.
