Leave Bill a Tip!
Meet Bill Bartels, our house musician. Bill has been playing guitar for over 60 years, and specializes in classical guitar, jazz, and folk. Over the years he's played with John Zorn, Richard Crandell, and opened for Bruce Hornsby. He's performed many shows at local establishments and teaches guitar lessons. He's played with us since the start, performing on the brewery floor back before we expanded our dining area.
This pandemic has been hard on gig musicians like Bill. Neither teaching, or performing to a live audience has been an option for a year now. These days he literally plays to an empty house 5 days a week in our community room. We've got him piped into the beer garden LIVE though, so next time you're enjoying a pint on the patio have a listen. And maybe stick your head inside and give him a wave! Its nice to put a face to the sound and Bill would appreciate the good vibes!
