CL can’t believe it’s been a year since Southern Lights Brewing Company premiered its crowd-pleasing ales to the public, but we ain’t mad about it, either.

Next week, head to the 1 Year Anniversary Party of Clearwater’s first nanobrewery — hosted from 3 to 11 p.m. Thursday — to celebrate with food and snacks on the house, guest taps and a ribbon cutting with Mayor George Cretekos.

Giveaways are also in store.
