On January 30, Old Coast Ales, 300 Anastasia Blvd., held a "soft opening" preview night and will make it official on Wednesday, February 1, when the long-awaited Opening Day finally arrives.
Last November, I visited the still-under-construction brewery and tap room and found Jon framing out the bar. Take a look at the first preview story published about Old Coast Ales, along with background about the building and the co-owners.

Last night's soft opening probably drew more of a crowd than may have been anticipated, and there were still some things being worked out, as expected. But, the bar is now completed, and Old Coast Ales house beers are flowing from the taps.

Malty, with a noticeable hoppiness on the backend.
Good, all-around brew for everyone.
|Burt's Summer Ale, named for the yeast.|
Flavors of fruits, pleasant & refreshing.
|Empirical IPA (named for the bike shop).|
Hopheads rejoice! Smooth, balanced,
citrus, earthy, with a hop bite.
|Boulevard Brown Ale. A bit nutty with|
a medium-to-full mouthfeel
