It took a bit longer than expected for the Wandering Griffin Brewery & Pub to fully live up to its middle name.

But from noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, the pub will host a grand opening for its new brewery and will unveil its first six beers that were brewed in-house.

The brewery was completed earlier this year, and head brewer David Jennings joined the Wandering Griffin during the spring to begin firing up the new brewing equipment. Plans call for devoting at least half of the pub’s 36 taps to its own beer.
