Happy Birthday Triple Rock

Today is the 25th anniversary of the day that Triple Rock Brewery & Alehouse first opened its doors for business in 1986. They’ll be celebrations going at the brewpub all day long, with rolled back pricing, and at 5:00 p.m. they’ll tap a special keg of beer by brewmaster Rodger Davis. Come on down and try some of this one-of-a-kind brew, and say hello to founders John and Reid Martin. I’ll be there, as well, so say hey.

Here’s some newspaper clippings and photographs, generously shared with me by John Martin, from opening day of Triple Rock in 1986:
