Five Threads Brewing Company got its name from the brewing terms “thread,” which refers to the blending of two or more beers. The “five threads” include water, malt, hops and yeast. The fifth thread is you and me, which recognizes the craft beer brewers who dedicate their lives to creating the perfect pint and you, the craft beer drinkers, who journey to find it. Five Threads is one of those places that’s easy to fall in love with, and the helpful staff is as warm as they are knowledgeable. It’s a hidden gem with a small, intimate tasting room (you can see the brewing equipment in the back) with a laid-back vibe, a small pub food menu and an impressive selection of brews.
