Our latest in the Brewery Spotlight series takes on a field trip to the Historic Third Ward’s only brewery, Broken Bat Brewing. The vision of lifelong friends Tim Pauly and Dan McElwee, Broken Bat Brewing Co. provides its patrons with sight lines to the brew house and fermentation tanks, as well as 8 TVs showing that days’ sports or events. Specialties on tap, with a tip of the cap in homage to America’s Pastime are: Straight Chedd – an apricot pale ale, Corre Corre – a Mexican Lager with fresh lime, Golden Sombrero – an American Pilsner, and Ugly Finder – a Hazy NE IPA. The roster of craft beers is ever-changing throughout the regular season, and even into the off season. Check back here for a list of what we’ll be drinking for this special night.
As Tim and Dan say: “In baseball, when a bat breaks, it’s something unexpected. And that’s essentially what our beer is going to be like, what the brewery experience is going to be: something different, unexpected.”
