Blind Tiger Brewery & Restaurant
The Blind Tiger Brewery & Restaurant is named for the Prohibition-era custom of illegal drinking establishments displaying stuffed tigers or china tigers to alert potential patrons to the availability of illicit alcohol after hours. In southern dialect a “tiger” was a roaring party. These “tigers” were “blind” because the authorities, at least officially, did not know they existed. They keep at least six flagships and seven rotating seasonals on tap, to the tune of about 1300 barrels a year. Their brews have gathered 21 national and international awards over the past 15 years.
