Jack’s Run Brewing Grand Opening

“Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. And they’re always glad you came.”

Sound familiar? I know, some of you young whippernsappers are probably going uh…huh? For you I have two words. Netflix, baby. You sadly missed out on one of the best sitcoms to ever hit TV in the 80’s and 90’s – Cheers. Set in a bar in Boston, Cheers was truly a place where everyone did know your name. It was an establishment where once you entered those hallowed doors, you were considered part of the Cheers family. For those of you with fond memories of the show, I’m sure good ol’ Norm Peterson comes to mind. He’d enter the bar to a rousing display of all patrons shouting his name in unison as he took his rightful spot on his designated bar stool. Cheers provided an experience, a place where you could go grab a beer while feeling special, appreciated and always in good company. It was your home away from home.

This post is well overdue, friends. Quattro Goomba’s has a Beer Kitchen and is serving up some really delicious food! Yep, that’s right. A Beer Kitchen! My favorite place in our home + my favorite beverage. I can’t really think of anything better. You should totally check it out! I mean, I don’t think you need much more of an endorsement than that, do you? You already know how we love our beer and our food. And when we get the chance to combine the two at one of our favorite breweries in the area, well, you all need to know about it too.

We’re really lucky right now, living in Virginia, to have access to a lot of fantastic beer. There’s something for everyone’s palate, their preference, their preferred style of brew. You might even find yourself changing your mind on a particular style of beer all because of your ability to try different variations and a brewery’s ability to experiment.  And while you don’t have to fall head over heels for every beer you taste, you do have to appreciate the hard work going into each and every single beer being produced. It’s tough sometimes to make the rounds and try out new breweries while finding time to visit your favorite watering holes. Caboose Brewing Co. was on our radar long before they opened. I think I started following them on Facebook the day they created the page! But it sadly took us this long to pay them a visit, something Cody and I are still kicking ourselves over.

Today we’re introducing you to Dirt Farm Brewing along with a little guide on how this whole “detox then retox” business works. Trust me, you’ll love it.
