Happy Birthday, Prescott Brewing Company

Forest Grump taught us “Stupid is as stupid does,” and Bill Clinton was president, and in 1994 Prescott Brewing Company opened.

Prescott Brewing Company is 25 years old next month. The establishment opened on March 15, 1994. March 15 is also the Ides of March, the day a group of Roman senators decided they had quite enough of Julius Caesar and assassinated him.

“People said don’t open on the Ides of March, it will bring you bad luck,” Prescott Brewing Company owner Roxane Nielsen said. “We already had our plans in place, and we said, ‘Nah we’re ready,’ and we will open on the 15th of March, and we did.”

Prescott Brewing Company is the most awarded and oldest brewing company in Arizona, Nielsen said. The Brewing Company will celebrate its anniversary with the release of its Defiance Beer on March 15.

“Not too bad for a little old brewery in little old Prescott.”

Bella Home Furnishings opens

Watch out; there is a new business in Prescott. Bella Home Furnishings recently opened up its doors for customers.
