Cafe' Jax meets HA) Brewery
HA) Brewery keeps evolving. It's hard to imagine that such a fine-crafted establishment in such a gorgeous setting with such excellent beers could get any better, but it has. Partner/Owner Karl Kassler enthusiastically talks about their up and coming beer garden. “We are feverishly working to have it open by July 1st _ building picnic tables and landscaping!" Chris Neill, Head Brewer/Owner, is stoked to be working on his new Farm House series of open fermented Belgian-style Witbier and Saison beers. They are now on the menu at HA) – and have that distinctive wheat-beer taste that some of us find irresistible. Of course they continue to offer their choices of delicious IPA's (yes, including their award winning Grave Creek IPA), ales, dark beers, and Eli's soon-to-be-famous Ginger Ale.
Town Pump Working with Local Artists
Recognizing a Need
Driving highway-93 through the thick forest, past the rolling grassy pastureland, and down the hill into town, the Town Pump gas station greets all who enter Eureka from the South. Town Pump has begun a project to expand their parking lot and in the process, build a concrete retaining wall with a 4 ft. chain link fence above it.
In what is now the Town Pump parking lot, there used to be a little overgrown park. Savahna Schuhmacher had always thought it would be fun to restore the park and create another space in town for children and families. Though the park was leveled and is now a parking lot, she still had her eye on it as an area of town that could use some affection.
