What’s brewing: As the signature beer list suggests, Slippery Pig is no run-of-the-mill microbrewery. Dave and Shawna Lambert opened the business on their Finn Hill farm in 2010 and found inspiration close at hand, incorporating fresh-grown ingredients into their recipes.

Slippery Pig made a bold move to downtown this year, opening a new brew house, taproom and live music venue on Front Street in late June. The new location will allow the brewery to expand production and fatten up its bar business with more walk-in customers.

Viewpoint:

“The more impossible something seems, the better of an idea it is. If anyone says you can’t do that, we’re going to figure out why you can’t.” — Dave Lambert
