Cloudburst Brewing is celebrating its first birthday, throwing a party by putting its favorites back on tap.
A lot of the fan favorites are coming back on tap, your chance to see, or rather taste, what all the buzz is about.
Head brewer and founder Steve Luke is one of the rising stars in the local craft-brewing scene, a hop head who makes some of the wackiest and most original suds including — back by popular demand — an imperial stout brewed with hazelnut oil and coffee from Lighthouse Roasters. “It tastes like gas-station, hazelnut coffee,” Luke said, proudly.
We told you he was an oddball.
