There’s a certain rhythm to running a brewery. It’s not just about the beer, it’s also about the community that’s drinking your beer. You want to engage them, you want them to feel like they own the brewery.

And when you have a good year, it’s because of that community you’ve help to create. I think 4 Hands Brewing Company has done a great job of bolstering and creating a community of 4 Hands fans.  They’re always listening and always engaging their audience.

It’s not surprising that music plays such a big part in 4 Hands. Music is about creativity and so is brewing. I’ve commented in the past that I’m not a big fan of music at beer festivals. But, this wasn’t a beer festival, it was a music festival that featured awesome beer.  Luckily, the bands I saw were all great as well. Congrats on your first year 4 Hands, can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future.
