KOREAN BEER KID
Thanks to a good friend of mine, Austin, I was invited to attend the soft opening for new location for Claim 52 Brewing in Eugene, OR, USA. He and I were literally the first one to enter their newly built location: A huge space closer to the general Eugene population from businesspeople to university students. What a beautiful space! The first thing that popped into my head when I first saw the movie theater style tap list was my visit to Brewdog's location in SoHo, London, UK. (visit their website to see the inspiration). Bryce Fisher, the headbrewer for Claim 52 Brewing, actually mentioned that he got his idea from the same location! What a coincidence!
He mentioned that he gets his letter tiles imported from England
Funny story: Half of the tiles that are supposed to make it for the soft opening actually got held at the customs. The reason why I bring up this is because it shows how much effort they put into even little things like letter tiles. This location is perfect: Close to student-apartment complex and Downtown Eugene. Every wall is either painted by the local artists or covered with posters of their beer. They have a much larger space for sitting and even a conference-style room with TVs, which is perfect for days to watch Ducks game.
