Monday Mural - Bartleby Hopsworth

(click on photo to enlarge)
FLYING MOUSE BREWERY
221 Precast Way
Troutville

We have a new brewery in Botetourt! The Flying Mouse. This is Chris and his sidekick Bartleby Hopsworth. Chris is one of the 5 partners @ Flying Mouse and the creative genius behind Bartleby, the "determined" little mascot. You can see his artwork all around the brewery and although this isn't a mural per se, I think it would be awesome to see a big Bartleby Hopsworth mural out front welcoming guests. Maybe in the future?!

We stopped in yesterday afternoon and had a beer and a look around. 3 of the 5 partners were there and so nice to give us a tour and tell us all about their vision for the brewery and all the hard work and sacrifice it took to get here.

The Flying Mouse is opened on Friday/Sat/Sun with live music and food trucks on Saturday afternoon/evening.

Tomorrow I'll show you a little more :)

  5. Bad enough having mice, but when they fly that's too much. Isn't a flying mouse called a bat? Lovely to have a new brew pub. Seldom found a brew pub that produced anything but excellent brews.

  7. Love the drawing. But that is a strange name for a brewery. I remember the first time I saw bats flying around on a summer's eve in Texas - they looked like flying mice!

  16. I agree with Michelle. I wonder if it took a long time to come up with that name. Perfect. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
