Hi there, friends! I hope this finds you having a great (and possibly extra long) weekend. Jeremy and I had a much needed date night last night and made sure to take part in Savor Fort Wayne while we were at it.
Just over a year ago, I won tickets to Trubble Brewing’s soft opening. Aly and I attended the event, wrote a blog about our experience, and have since been been back many times to have a few beers, soak in the sun on their amazing (dog-friendly) patio, and enjoy their delicious food offerings, especially during their Sunday brunch!
Happy Monday, friends! I’m so excited to start the week off with this post. It’s been a long time coming and I can’t even begin to describe how thrilled I am that it’s finally happening.
Before moving to Fort Wayne, I was totally unaware of just how much the city had going on in the realm of fine arts. And in the years since then, our arts community has only continued to grow – in not only the number of artists, exhibits, events, productions, festivals, and more, but also in the amount of support, awareness, and sheer momentum – it’s an exciting time to be here!
When we grow up, it can be tough to leave the traditions we had growing up behind. And as a young, busy couple without kids, it’s proved a tad difficult for Jeremy and I to make and stick to new holiday traditions of our own. But Night of Lights in downtown Fort Wayne is one I hope will last!
Jeremy and I have been anxiously waiting for Trubble Brewing to open their doors for months now. They are practically situated in our own backyard and over the course of the last year, we’ve been getting hints about how the owners are focused on incorporating regional beers in addition to their own and crafting totally unique menu options made with locally sourced food.
Last month, one of my favorite local bars, Calhoun Soups, Salads, and Spirits (CS3), had a tap takeover where all 16 taps had delicious Founders beer pouring through them. Among the offerings were the incredibly rare Kentucky Breakfast Stout, Backwoods Bastard, and new offerings such as Blushing Monk, ReDANKulous, and Mosaic Promise.
“Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Yesterday started out normal enough. We were just hanging out with Jeremy’s sister, Taylor, and our niece, Meryl, in downtown Fort Wayne.
