Triad City WheatYesterday we were incredibly flattered when the guys at Hoots Beer Co. decided to name a beer after us.

Hoots recently started brewing its own beer, and yesterday released a new wheat brew. They hadn’t thought of what to name it, and while our Editor-In-Chief Brian Clarey there, stopping by to pick up a generously donated keg of it for our party at Delurk Gallery, they opted for “Triad City Wheat.”


The beer from this Winston-Salem brewery — as you can see in the photo — is 4 percent ABV, and was a huge hit at the party. If you missed it, or you want more, stop by Hoots Roller Bar in the West End Mill Works and ask for a pint of the City Wheat. I doubt you’ll be disappointed.

Speaking of booze and the Mill Works, we’re also very grateful that Small Batch Beer Co. donated three growlers of its delicious beer to our six-month anniversary, and that Sutler’s Spirit (a distillery next to Hoots) proprietor Scot Sanborn could make the event.

Thanks to everyone who came out and celebrated with us and to all the local businesses that donated raffle prizes! And a big shout out to Finnigan’s Wake, Ingino’s Catering, Mary’s Gourmet Diner and Wallflour Bakery for providing food, and to Zac Trainor, Elsewhere Artist Collaborative, photographer Quentin Richardson and bodypainter Amber Michael for providing art at our event!

We’re also so glad we were able to hold our party at Delurk Gallery, which proved to be the perfect venue as well as incredible hosts and bartenders.

All the support is humbling and gives us tremendous strength. We couldn’t have asked for better celebrations in Winston-Salem or Greensboro, or a better way to launch our Kickstarter.
