Craft Beer and Music – The Perfect Mix ?

Whether you are a craft beer enthusiast, a local musician or both, Cave Brewing Company has a lot to offer. The problem is, they’re not quite on everyone’s radar just yet. So, why take the time to discover the Cave ? After all, there are plenty of craft breweries in the Lehigh Valley. What’s so special about Cave ? Let’s take a look.

For starters, they are unique in several ways. No, not because they brew their own beer right here in the Lehigh Valley. They all do that. But, few do it with the passion and the desire to grow and create something new the way owner Jeff Bonner does. He is constantly looking to find that special taste through research and collaboration with other brewers in the area. As a result, many of his beers are unique and deserve a little attention. If you’ve read this far I’m sure you’re wondering “why is a site dedicated to music talking about beer and breweries?”

As a local musician myself, it’s my goal to be out sharing my music as much as possible. I’m always looking, as I know many others are, for new places to play and new audiences to play for. Well, Cave Brewing Company wants to provide that space and that opportunity. As passionate as Jeff is about his beer, he’s just as passionate about his music. The ultimate goal is to be a live music venue and craft brewery all wrapped into one. They certainly have the space for it and the acoustics in the room are surprisingly good. So, what’s holding them back ? Being relatively unknown has a lot to do with it. The more people that come out and give them a try, the better the chance of that goal being realized becomes. By supporting them and spreading the word, we can all make a difference there. So, what does Cave to offer ?

Every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month there is an open mic night at Cave. Sign-ups start at 5:30pm and the open mic runs until close and, quite often, later. It’s a little different than most open mics in that it is for original material only. It is the perfect setting for singer/songwriters or even poets and comedians. they just ask that all material be your own. They have an outstanding host in Nick Lindsay (the Vulcans) and an owner that wants nothing more than to fill the room with creative people. Starting this month, they are offering ALL performers 50% off drinks during the open mic. There is never an issue with parking because of the mall location. They are family and dog friendly so, don’t let your kids or your pets keep you from coming out. There are two restaurants inside the mall, two more on the grounds and 8-10 food trucks every Thursday from 4-8pm so, you’ll never go hungry. For those of you who do not like beer, they have select wines from Tolino Vineyards and meads from Colony Meadery.

So, what’s holding you back? Get out to the South Mall this Thursday and discover Cave Brewing Company. Then, tell all your friends to do the same. Support a local business that wants to support local music and help the community grow. The larger that blip on the radar grows, the better the opportunities will be for all of us. Will we see you at the Cave on Thursday ??
