The North Colley section of town has slowly but surely become an epicenter of gastrointestinal greatness over the past few years. There are over a dozen establishments within a few blocks, ready to satisfy your need for the best chow and even better beer.
One of North Colley’s newest institutions is Elation Brewing. Since 2019, Elation has grown into the northern anchor of Colley Ave. While the beer is the star of the show, their block-filling events consistently drive crowds of folks into the neighborhood. Of course, the recent addition of Chelsea Bakehouse’s wood-fired pizza to the menu is adding gasoline to the fire menu. The team at Elation is seriously bringing big energy to the neighborhood.
The latest news out of North Colley’s Elation team needs to be on your radar. This Sunday, Elation is hosting their first-ever Elated Craft Market. Out of the gate, they’re planning for this to be another community staple. The Elated Craft Market is slated to show up every third Sunday of the month.
The Elated Craft Market will showcase a handful of curated vendors that will expand in the coming months. The vendor lineup features a diverse selection of crafted goods ranging from market staples like jewelry and candles to unique offerings like tie-dye apparel and vegan lip wear. We don’t want to give away all the surprising things you’ll find in the market, however, a few fan favorites are worth mentioning: Alodeuri with handcrafted (and cute!) jewelry and Aubrena Bakes with 100% vegan baked treats.
Despite the far-reaching range of vendors and goods, there is a strategy at play. The focus isn’t just on beautiful crafts and artwork to sit on a shelf, but rather on products that you can use all the time. The Elation team hopes that the items you find will put a smile on your face for a long while after you’ve left the brewery.
P.S. If you’re digging this, just wait until you see the rest of the Elation Brewing calendar.
