Anchors and Tiberius

TiberiusAnchors.jpg

Join us as we welcome doom rockers Tiberius and Anchors to the Brewpub! We'll be jamming low and slow from 8-11 PM, with no cover. Grab your friends and come enjoy some great live music.

 \\ Anchors // Anchors is a band born and bred in the Midwest... Specifically Indiana… More specifically northwest Indiana. Close enough to taste the city life of Chicago, but far enough away to feel the weight of the consistent boredom the Midwest has to offer. What you do with that boredom is what defines you here. We decided to make music -- the kind of music that we would want to listen to.

We decided to make music -- the kind of music that we would want to listen to.

 \\ Tiberius // Tiberius are Eric Ledbetter (guitar/vox), Jonathan Kruit (drums) and Adam Harsha (bass/vox). Having known and played in a handful of NWI bands with each other for years, their paths ultimately converged again in 2015, when they sought to carve out their lashing new sound, one that would also feature elements of the familiar origins of heavy metal. Thus, Tiberius was born, NWI’s all original, groove infused and melody driven metal trio.  Their blistering live performances aim to celebrate and accentuate the gathering of friends, lovers of live music, beer drinkers and hell raisers alike. Moreover, their songs are a reflection of who they are; great friends with a love of melodic heavy music that must be played loud.  Their first album Tiberius I was released in 2016 and is available here:   https://tiberius2.bandcamp.com/releases

 “We have always been a band about relationships...we realize that relationships are what ultimately shape you into who you are.”   Oceans Over Airplanes is a group that is not specifically from the fields of the Midwest, the bustle of the city or the repetition of the sprawling suburbs. They are a group of musicians from Northwest Indiana that have found each other over time. OOA focus on telling stories about Midwest living, creating what they call Heartfelt Post- Emo Rock.   The band is releasing a new Single "Colour" in June 2018.  OOA once again teamed up to work with friend and producer Seth Henderson (Real Friends, Knucklepuck, Sleep On It) to create their newest song which continues to further develop the sounds created during their last EP "Traditions".  The band continues to center on creating music that they credit being a direct reflection of their closest relationships and surrounding environment.

 Music is all about chemistry, and chemistry is all about bonds. When musicians share the unique bond of life-long friendships, the results are quite spectacular.   This is the case of The Burst and Bloom, 4 kids from Chicago. This is their brand new adventure in the world of music: the group is proudly in charge of writing, producing and recording their own material and their vision is simple: making the best music they can possibly make, approaching each song with integrity and with the goal of crafting something truly excellent for themselves and their listeners.

Budapest Beer Week 2018

  • Budapest Beer Week 2018 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

18th Street Brewery is excited to head to Hungary for this years Budapest Beer Week!

Like many great things, the idea of the festival was born in a beer bar under the influence of new wave brewing, international festivals, inspiring brewers and of course a decent amount of good beer. The goal was simple and straightforward from the beginning: although during the past couple of years the wind of craft has touched the Hungarian beer scene and great breweries has been risen from the ground, it is clear that we have to leap that next step to connect our culture into the international circles of craft beer. That is why we are here -and so are you. Our goal is not only to invite you to the tasting sessions of BPBW but to persuade you staying here for a longer time: during the whole week we are organizing tap takeovers, brewery visits, meet the brewer events and concerts.
