Some good news for the discriminating beer lover: Lakefront Brewery has produced a new beer called Cattail Ale… brought to you from the southernmost part of Riverwest. One Riverwest Currents taster says “it has good flavor and a little bite.” Yum.

Another gallery is splitting Riverwest… located in the building at the southwest corner of Center and Bremen, Ring of Fire Gallery is moving to a new space in the Third Ward. They’re looking to have more studio/work space and not run a gallery. Early this year, Luckystar left Riverwest for the Third Ward as well.
