Photos from Yellow Springs Brewery opening

File this under, er, better late than never. 

I was out of town the weekend the Yellow Springs Brewery opened, so I missed the big bash. Luckily, Jared was there to snap a few photos and take some notes. 

The grand opening saw a steady stream of patrons from the minute the door opened until hours later, at closing. Limited seating in the capacity crowd, but guests didn't seem to mind. Lots of YS residence and Dayton locals showed up to support the brewery. 
Great beers, all which were clean and crisp. The Captain Stardust Saison, which was a later tapping, kicked first. The 6.5% ABV draft had a nice floral note. Other noted favorites were the Dark Mild (3.9% ABV) English-style ale and the Porter (5.8% ABV).

I'm hoping to make a trip out there soon. I've been able to try a few of the beers on tap around town and have been very impressed. Until then, I'll just have to gawk at these pics from the opening. Nate, Lisa, and Jeffrey seem to have a good thing going.
