Ahhh. The freshness of the year’s first Elite Event has come
and gone, but the long, whispery notes of delicious beer, finely
grilled…grilled cheese, and lively chatter still fill our senses. What a doozy
of kicking off the year in Crown Town. Our Elites waited with bated breath to
get things rolling in the Queen City after the hopes and anticipation had
turned to more waiting. Thus, for a “make-up,” we landed our yelp-laden ship at
Triple C Brewing Co for a weeknight of fun.
Our crew consisted of plenty of new faces and new things to
try. Triple C Brewing Co, one of the new brewskie-brewers on the scene played
host. With a foamy lineup of Smoked Amber, Up All Night Porter, Babymaker IPA,
and Golden Boy Blonde, our crew had the chance to sample the fare from our
city’s newest sudsy sidekick. Pat D notes,
“I was able to try a small sample of the Babymaker and then purchased their
breakfast porter once they were done giving out samples. Both beers were
fantastic.” To go a step further, Head Brewer Scott took our crew on a tour of
the brewery. Mixed with a quick tutorial on the hops and barley used in-house
and a walkthrough of the facility, our Elites and their guests got a chance to
see the underbelly of their operation. “We love to support all things local and
getting a VIP tour of Triple C was great! Seeing the special lab where they are
inventing their next brews,” notes Amanda
The latest “strEATery” on our fair city’s streets is the
likes of Papi Queso. Found a few days a week keeping beer-goers full, Elites
had the chance of sampling a few of Chef Brian’s cheesy creations. Whipping up
creations with pulled pork, pastrami, French onion concentrations, and mixtures
of luscious cheeses, this food truck has an agenda. Brandi M tells of the “Pig Mac — an amazing combination of bbq
pork, grilled onions, and fluffy mac & cheese on pressed buttery bread,”
which is one of his claims to street-side fame.
