• The folks behind the Mac Daddy's mac-and-cheese food truck, a familiar sight at local breweries and beer events, have opened a brick-and-mortar Mac Daddy's Gourmet Pub & Grill up north at 415 W. Hastings Road. The sports bar features several local beers among its 12 taps; look for a house IPA soon from Young Buck along the lines of its latest Pinus Maximus.
• Four-Eyed Guys has upped its game with the acquisition of a four-barrel fermenter and brite tank from Republic Brewing. The distribution-only brewery will run multiple batches into those from its one-barrel brewhouse as it works to expand production.

• Green Bluff's 238 Brewing has announced that it's closed now until spring, though it will open Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. for growler fills.
