Online PR News – 17-December-2011 – – We’ve been busy at College Street Brewhouse & Pub! It’s taken almost 2 years, but finally Lake Havasu City’s newest restaurant and microbrewery is open for business.

The location is conveniently located just off highway 95. “Our highway location will give us great exposure and a beautiful view of the lake from our patio”, says Lon Weatherson, Managing Partner and Brewmaster, “now everyone driving through our town, on the way to the airport or the mall will see College Street Brewhouse & Pub and stop in for a visit.” The pub has ample room for parking, an outdoor dining area and large bar for people to come and unwind.

Lon has been brewing for over 25 years; something that started as a hobby in his dorm room closet. His experimentation with different ingredients, utilization of top quality grains from independent, family-owned growers and innovative brewing methods has helped earn him 7 medals at the Great American Beer Festival - the largest commercial beer competition in the world.

“Our focus is on creating one-of-a-kind handcrafted, award-winning beers and delicious food made simply.” Chef Anthony Crossley says, “I believe in an old-world approach to freshness and sustainability, because fresh, local food tastes better, and is better for you”

Respect for these ingredients is the cornerstone of Anthony’s culinary philosophy. Anthony’s mantra is to draw out, compliment, and enhance the natural flavors, not to over-manipulate and disguise the natural beauty of the food. Revelers will appreciate sipping a smooth, flavorful craft brew while enjoying our rustic cuisine.

The microbrewery boasts a large production brewhouse which can produce 10,000 barrels per year allowing for beer to be bottled and kegged and distributed. A state of the art bottling machine has been installed which can output 1,500 bottled beers per hour. Besides selling beer to go in growlers and half growlers, beer lovers will eventually be able to purchase regular and seasonal brews in 6, 12 and 24-pack bottles throughout Arizona grocery stores and be found “on tap” at other restaurants and taverns.

Local & Sustainable
The new brewhouse and pub will provide 35-45 new jobs as well as support local farmers and wholesale suppliers. The “spent grain” is taken to True Grit Ranch in Kingman and used as feed for their livestock. Reclamation tanks were installed to reduce waste and reuse clean water. Outside xeriscape native landscaping was utilized to significantly reduce watering.

College Street Brewhouse & Pub is located in Lake Havasu City, Arizona (pop. 50,000), home to the world famous London Bridge. For a relatively small city, Havasu has a diverse array of events planned throughout the year. It has long been a well-known destination for spring breakers, California tourists during the summer months and retirees in the winter. This all season playground has over 300 days of sunshine and 19,000 acres of beautiful lake.
