Kyle Vetter's inventive and adventurous 1840 Brewing Company, 340 E. Ward St. in Bay View, is turning three, which is a pretty landmark moment for a young business, especially during these tough times.

You can learn more about its first couple years in this profile.

The brewery is celebrating by releasing a trio of three special beers, each of which has been featured in detail in social media posts by the brewery. Here are photos and details of each brew, all three of which launch this weekend.

Don't wait to place your orders because they will surely sell out.

"We feel these three beers do a great job of highlighting our brewing philosophy," says Vetter. "Barrel aged beers, historical ales, and hazy IPAs are three types of beer we love to make.

"The only style we are missing is fruit beer to complete the story of who we are as a brewery."

1840 also has a few tap takeovers in Washington County Parks tour this month, including Friday, Aug. 14 at Sandy Knoll County Park and Friday, Aug. 21 at Homestead Hollow County Park.

Full details can be found on the brewery's Facebook page, where there's also a video of Vetter explaining the new beers.
