What is significant about April Fool’s Day at restaurants near me? Absolutely nothing. That’s the joke. However, the spring season is here and that’s not a joke. Flowers bloom, weather changes, and more events sprout up in the downtown Woodstock area. For example, Freight Kitchen & Tap has a new brewery of the month which means perks for our guests.
Have you ever heard of Wild Leap Brewing? If not, we’re hear to teach you about them. A rather young brewery, Wild Leap began in 2017 in a little town called LaGrange, GA. Cofounder, Anthony Rodriguez, one day made a toast to “wild leaps and following your passions”. Needless to say, that moment represents a significant part of the brewery’s birth.
Breweries often have great background stories, especially about the history of the buildings they choose to occupy. In Wild Leap’s case, an old tire shop seemed ideal. Rodriguez drove past former Westbrook Service & Tire Company and said aloud, “that would be a really cool spot for a brewery”. This guy was clearly onto something. With massive support from the LaGrange and Troup county community, Wild Leap came to fruition. Mayor Jim Thornton himself expressed his excitement stating Wild Leap will “be an important anchor” and “expand the footprint of our downtown area beyond the square”. Good job, Wild Leap!
Back to the perks, come in and order any Wild Leap craft on draft for just $6. And every Monday, any draft beer at Freight is only $4. Plus, as soon as we get some Wild Leap pint glasses, take one home for free when you purchase any Wild Leap beer. ANOTHER PLUS, come out to downtown Woodstock the first Friday in April and visit our Wild Leap beer tent. You can pick up some brewery swag and try a Wild Leap beer.
