GRANTVILLE— This month marks Benchmark Brewing Co.'s first anniversary and they're celebrating a number of ways, including a birthday weekend, June 27 to 29, that'll feature cupcakes from PubCakes paired with San Diego 71 IIPA in a keeper glass. Throughout June, the brewery will also honor owner and brewmaster Matt Akin and his ginger beard by offering discounts and specials to everyone who comes into a tasting room wearing a red beard, either naturally-grown or self-crafted.
