Funk the Man: A Farewell to 2401 Blake Street

On October 24th, we’ll officially say goodbye to 2401 Blake St – our first home – recently sentenced to death by bulldozer.

But in the meantime, we intend to party.

To commemorate the demise of our original location, we’ll celebrate with “Funk the Man,” three weeks of farewell shindigs paying tribute to insatiable redevelopment, growth for the sake of growth and cash over community.

Funk the Man is more than just an ideal. It’s also a beer. A series of bretted saisons from our barrel archives, in fact.

Funk the Man #1, aged in cabernet barrels, drops October 10th. Funk the Man #2, which features hibiscus, continues the party on October 17th. Funk the Man #3, with black currant, will serve as the capstone to our final brewhouse party October 23rd and 24th. The entire FTM series will be available on tap and in 375ml bottles on their respective release dates.

As the countdown clock dwindles, we’ll clear out the back, moving equipment and making room for even larger celebrations. In addition to Funk the Man, we still have a slew of barrel-aged kegs from the past year, and while we could move everything, we prefer to drink it with you!

All cheekiness aside, in the 3-plus years we’ve spent here, we’ve shared countless pints, forged immeasurable friendships, and have infinitely fond memories of 24th and Blake.

When the bulldozers come, we’ll shed a tear. But for now, let’s raise a glass.

Join us now, and in a couple months for our reincarnation at 6021 Washington Street.

The most sincere of Cheers,

RNB
