Last night, I attended the opening party at Big Rock Urban Brewery in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood close to the Olympic Village station. The brewery is a beauty and it is quite the operation, along with a large restaurant and bar that seats 200 people with a stage for live bands, retail store, tasting bar and growler fill station.
