Big Beach Brewery celebrates anniversary with multiple events
Music, firkin tappings, food offerings Oct. 13-14 at Island’s only brew pub
Big Beach Brewing Company, Pleasure Island’s first and only micro-brewery, will celebrate its first anniversary at 300 East 24th Ave. in the Waterway Village district of Gulf Shores Oct. 13-14 with a series of events that include a full day of live music on Oct. 14, commemorative glasses, firkin tappings and a month long fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation (a $1 per Milk Stout pint and t-shirt sales profits go directly to the charity).
The anniversary celebration will feature food trucks and a photo booth on Oct. 14, and the release of its NochEines Marzen beer. Most of the events are free to the public, but the Oct. 14 festivities are ticketed at $5 per person, which includes a commemorative glass if you buy a ticket before the event (251-948.BEER or bigbeachbrewing.com).
The weekend music line-up includes The Quickening at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 13, Denton Hatcher (1 p.m.), Roadside Glorious (3 p.m.) and Hundred Dollar Car (7 p.m.) on Oct. 14, and Corey Reznor at 4 p.m. on Oct. 15.
Big Beach Brewery is locally owned by Jim & Julie Shamburger, home brewers for many years, and their family. Just a year old, it is already a cornerstone of Gulf Shores’ Waterway Village District.
