► New downtown brewery DSSOLVR, with a design point of view that melds the absurd and surreal, opened December 2019 with beer offerings fit for picky beer enthusiasts and casual light beer drinkers alike, as well as their own mead, wine, cider and cold-brew coffee.
► Highland Brewing Company is partnering with DSSOLVR for Breakfast Stout, with the high ABV version brewed at Highland and the low ABV take on the same recipe to be made in DSSOLVR’s brewhouse. Both beers will be fermented in Bourbon barrels and released in early 2020.
► Green Man Brewery has opened The Dweller in a partially subterranean space downtown. The name pays homage to Green Man’s beloved Imperial Stout, as well as the creepy history of the century-old building. (Green Man owner Dennis Thies claims it used to be a morgue.)
