So just what’s in a name?

If you’re the owners of Cottage Grove’s newest brewpub, the answer may just be ‘a lot,’ or perhaps ‘too much.’

It’s been about 18 months since Kate and Ben Price, owners of Hard Knocks Brewing, first hit upon the idea of opening a brewpub in this community, and they say they’re thrilled to finally be open after the protracted financing and permitting process that led to their first day of business last Thursday. The brewpub is located at 1024 E. Main Street, the former location of Auto Art.

“It’s such a relief,” Kate Price said of the soft opening that gave customers their first taste of Hard Knocks fare on Thursday afternoon. And the Prices say everything is going well so far.

“The citizens of Cottage Grove are so awesome,” Kate Price said. “They’re so supportive of us and so patient. They know we’re new and still working out the kinks.”
