Life has an interesting way of telling us that change is near, especially in the fall.

On the days leading up to Thanksgiving, the leaves begin to fall, which means my allergies worsen, which means I’d rather not go outside, which means I’d rather stay home and cozy up with my favorite beer, which means it’s time to order takeout.

For me, fall means it’s time for personal pizzas and porters.

Speaking of change, Border Brewing Co. is moving! They’ve purchased a retail building at 512 E. 18th St. in the Crossroads Arts District, just a block away from the current location at 406 E. 18th St.

“I’m excited about this next step for Border Brewing Company, and ecstatic that we were able to find a location so close by,” said Eric Martens, owner/brewer, in a statement. “In addition to expanding our taproom, production, and canning operation, we are looking forward to tackling several new projects next year that were previously shelved due to space limitations.”

Be on the lookout for Border Brewing’s new space.
