Creature Comforts Starts Brewing, Finally

Those looking for an update on the status of downtown brewery Creature Comforts, which has been in the works for over a year, got an encouraging one this afternoon, when the company posted the news to its Twitter and Facebook pages that it would officially begin brewing in the former Snow Tire space Monday, Mar. 24. This places the estimated opening date four to five weeks away.

As the Facebook update reads, “Mark your calendars for Twilight, it’s going to be a good weekend!”

Itching for a sneak peek of the brewery’s digs? You’re in luck: Though it’s not yet fully operational, Creature Comforts will host a Slingshot Festival showcase Saturday.
