Making beer isn’t quite rocket science, but if anyone can use observation and experimentation to make a good thing great, it’s current and former NASA employees.
What once started as a passion for making beer among friends is now EaDo’s newest brewery, the celestial-mechanically named True Anomaly Brewing.
Owners and co-founders Michael Duckworth, Tom Ahlstrom, Ben Stahl and David Lantz originally connected as NASA interns. Many brewing experiments and a decade later, the quartet is embarking on an entirely different kind of teamwork as brewery proprietors.
The hard work of transforming the bare-bones space at 2012 Dallas Street into a fully operational brewery is now complete, to the benefit of the neighborhood and to the city’s craft beer enthusiasts.
The modern, light-filled taproom was designed to encourage interest in the brewing process, as prominently displayed Brite brewing tanks and large windows offer customers an up-close view of brewing in action. Rotating taps will showcase a cast of beers ranging from hop-forward Belgian-inspired saisons to wild and sour ales made with Brett yeast, courtesy of oversized oak barrels called foeders.
Though the co-owners take their beer brewing seriously, they want the experience for customers to be one of fun exploration. That means the space will be open during the day and suitable for everything from a quick pint (or nitro coffee brew) to after work meetups and weekend hangouts.
To the brewery rooted in community culture and space city, let’s raise a glass to a great addition to the EaDo brewery and pub scene.
