They didn't start off slowly. It's been a huge first year for Bluejacket, Neighborhood Restaurant Group's first venture into the brewery realm. The creative team behind the destination have been experimenting with many more beers than one might see in an average brewery's first year of business.

They'll be celebrating the event on Sunday from 1-5 p.m. with a patio party featuring porchetta and other food specials from the grill by chef Kyle Bailey, alongside some strong Bluejacket ales.
