Something sweet is brewing in the neighborhood. Local brewer Gary Meyer, 59, opened Hickory Creek Brewing Co. on June 27 after nearly a year of hard work to make his dream a reality.

Co2 bubbled in water in the back of his brewery as it was released from one of the tanks during the fermentation process to create his “Whack the Beaver” brew.
