Eurisko Beer Company Eurisko Beer Company’s quaint taproom and shaded biergarten offer a relaxed atmosphere just steps away from the heart of South Slope. Close proximity to the Tourist’s stadium, plenty of parking, and a wide array of highly-drinkable beer make this unassuming taproom the perfect location to start or end your downtown adventure. After receiving his formal brewing education at the Doemens Academy in Munich, Germany, Zac Harris linked up with three lifelong friends to achieve his dream of creating his own brewery. Founded in March, 2018, Eurisko strives to make beers that reflect the standards of tradition while still allowing plenty of play with modern processes. From traditional lagers and luscious stouts to Hazy IPA’s and Philly sours, Eurisko tries to cover the entire spectrum of beer. Heavily influenced by 90’s culture, (think Twin Peaks and The X-Files) Eurisko is “a place both wonderful and strange.” Signature Brew Helles Lager Hours M-Th 2-9, F 2-10, Sat 12-10, Sun 12-9

Guidon Brewing Co. Guidon Brewing Co. (Pronounced Guide On) is a veteran, American, German, and family owned and operated company dedicated to the art of brewing high quality, carefully crafted beer. Our combined knowledge of fine quality food and beverages from around the world drives our passion to provide our customers with the same quality we’ve come to know and love. We also strive to provide an enjoyable and welcoming atmosphere. This is known as Gemutlichkeit in Germany and it’s a word that projects a feeling of friendliness, relaxation and cheerfulness. The Guidon is a type of military flag that represents the organization and serves as a rallying point for troops on the battlefield. We chose it as our logo because we want to be seen as the rallying point for craft beer. Each component of a military guidon has meaning and so does ours. The black and Gold colors represent my service with the United States Army, the “B” represents our family name, the “4” represents the number of members of our family, and the “2” represents our two countries of origin, U.S.A. and Germany.

Dry Falls Brewing Co. Dry Falls Brewing Co. started out as a dream between father and son while sitting in a brewery on family vacation. Romanticizing the idea while drinking a flight of twenty-four different brews, Jeff and Evan found their next father/son hobby. They dove into books on brewing, purchased home brewing equipment and decided to brew full grain, just like the pros! Over a six-month period, they built a small working brewery inside Jeff’s garage. Friends, family, and neighbors started coming over and sharing pints. In 2015 Evan’s mother finally pushed her boys in the direction they needed. She gave the ultimatum “Do it, or stop talking about it.” In August 2016, Dry Falls Brewing Co. was founded and later purchased the Kanuga Rd location. They saw the old body shop for what is could be; a great place for a brewery. Prost! Signature Brew HVL IPA
