At long last, Brewerytown’s Crime & Punishment Brewing Co. is opening. The delayed brewpub has set Saturday, July 11th as its grand opening.

The brewpub is kicking its opening off with a ticket only event from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. A $25 ticket gets you a commemorative glass, two beers of your choosing and kielbasa with sauerkraut.

After 2 p.m., Crime & Punishment will be open to the public with snacks available and food trucks nearby ($10 can also get you a beer and commemorative glass). And if the brewpub is hit with large crowds, a couple of beers will be available across the street at Brewerytown Beats.

Normal hours will begin on Thursday, July 16. The brewpub will initially be open Thursdays through Sundays.

Free Beer?!

Yes, I did say free beer. Every Wednesday, all summer long, from 5 PM – 10 PM. Intrigued?
