Gravity Bound Brewing had planned to open its doors to the public back on March 25. Well, as we all know, something happened before that which proved to be a bit of a impediment.
As of Thursday, Gravity Bound has at last joined its fellow breweries in being open for customers at 50-percent occupancy. We joined a small crowd in the evening to check out the place, try the beers, and once again enjoy just being out with everyone again. Of course, we wore our masks at all times when we were not seated, and we did not mingle or leave our table when drinking. The rules are the rules, and we are going to follow them, for the safety of ourselves, our fellow patrons, and brewery staff members.
Now, as for those beers, we found just about everything we tried to be quite good for a brand-new brewery. The Vienna lager (Proof of Life) and pilsner (Where Lightning Strikes) were clean and crisp. The dark lager (Terra Form) packed a lot of flavors that you might expect more from a stout into a light-bodied beer. The session hazy IPA (Background Talent) popped with Citra and Mosaic hops, while the hazy IPA (Problem Space) started subtle, and then jumped out as it warmed up a bit.
All in all, it was a good night, even if we stayed a little long after close. Hey, owners Chris and Cameron Frigon have an awesome doggo who just wanted to play and play and play. He wore us all out, but he was a good boy.
For the most part, we will let the pictures do the talking here. Stop by Gravity Bound at 814 Third Street, just north of Lomas past the Square Hair Salon, this weekend and let us know what you think of the laid-back atmosphere, cool design, and tasty brews.
Keep supporting local!
