Get ready for Scratch’s Fifth Year Anniversary this year! As always, the party will be held the first weekend of March over two days, Saturday, March 3rd and Sunday, March 4th, from noon to 6 PM. Our friends have come together to help us celebrate our 5-year milestone this year, overwhelming us with amazing art, food, and drink to share with attendees.
As in years past we will offer 20 beers on draft at pouring stations around the brewery, and we will have a special fifth anniversary release available on draft and in bottles all weekend. For more details about the beers, the bottle, and the weekend's events, visit our announcement page.
Brewery friend Obie Ferguson will be making food all weekend for purchase á la carte (vegetarian and vegan options available). Obie is the chef and partner of Wisteria Southern Gastropub in Morganton, North Carolina. He is planning a menu with a combination of farmed and foraged ingredients from North Carolina and Southern Illinois. Scratch also welcomes good friends and frequent collaborators Dark Matter Coffee from Chicago who will be on site all weekend making hot coffee and pouring their own cold brew. Their coffee will be featured in a couple of beers on tap during the weekend, including a collaboration brewed at Scratch. The coffee, along with Scratch's house made soda and Southern Illinois chai tea, will be unlimited and included in the ticket price.
The party is a ticketed event only. Tickets are $30, and include a glass, 8 tasting tickets, and unlimited house made soda, hot chai, and coffee from Dark Matter. You can choose either Saturday or Sunday attendance. Designated Driver and non-alcoholic tickets are also available for $10 and include a mason jar and unlimited soda, tea, and coffee. Food is available separately á la carte and more sample tickets can be purchased throughout the day.
