Downtown businesses celebrate two-year anniversaries

They’re almost twins.

Two downtown Farmington businesses that opened within days of each other in November of 2014 will celebrate anniversaries this weekend. Farmington Brewing Company, at 33336 Grand River, and The Cheese Lady, at 33041 Grand River, have each planned two days of special activities.

Partners and former home brewers Jason Hendricks and Jason Schlaff, along with Schlaff’s father, Gary, opened the craft brewery’s doors on November 15, 2014. This weekend, special food vendors will serve up sliders, tacos, and sub sandwiches, and the Brewing Company will bring back its popular Pig Roast on November 12, with kid-friendly service between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Learn more on Facebook:

Representatives from McClary Bros. Vinegars and Woodberry Wines will be on hand Friday and Saturday, respectively. Learn more on Facebook:
