Breaking news! The new taps at Blue 5 are on-line! The official announcement and party will be next week, details to come.

Nice looking choices at Blue 5 in roanoke!

The Blue 5 hosted the folks from Devil’s Backbone last Thursday evening as they try new beers to fill out the increase in tap capacity they are installing. They were giving out samples of four of their craft beers to a happy group of beer lovers. There are going to be a bunch of events all across the state as DB rolls out their increased production from the new brewery in Lexington, Virginia.

Brian from DB hands out craft beer samples.

The new taps are not fully operational yet but are in place on the bar back and being hooked up. I gave ’em a test run while I was there…

Couldn't find a glass.

Blue 5’s 46 taps will be taking Roanoke to a whole new level of craft beer. They will likely have more of each style on tap than all the other bars in Roanoke put together have on tap collectively right now. Six IPAs or five porters will make Blue 5 a destination for microbrew lovers from all over the region.

Sneak peek at what's going to be on one of the 46 taps!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait…should be sometime this week! See ya there!

Laissaz les bon temps rouler!
