Drinks: Local brewery

  • The Wedge has made its list of hopped and heavily malted brews into a namesake that is fast becoming synonymous with the River Arts District. There are the standards such as the Julian Price Pilsner and Payne’s Pale Ale — named after artist and former Wedge Studios owner John Payne. But as the months grow colder the brewery will begin shifting further into its winter collection of beers. Fortunately there’s always the Iron Rail IPA so popular it gets its own express-service window on the left side of the dock. It proves itself time and again to be so refreshing. — K.S.
