Spinning fun
Brewery hosts monthly vinyl nights

 Beer and classic music come together during Pipe Dream Brewing’s vinyl nights. 

Once a month the Londonderry brewery hosts a party with friends and vinyl records enthusiasts Jayson Brennen and Pete Psaledas, who play vinyl records from their personal collections throughout the evening. 
Brennen and Psaledas have been collecting records since they were in high school. Together, they own more than 800 of them. As they were looking for a way to put their records to use, they proposed the idea of a vinyl night to the Pipe Dream Brewing founder and head brewer, who loved the idea. They held their first vinyl night last fall. 
“We’re constantly trying to bring in new things and not have the same cookie-cutter events all the time,” Pipe Dream co-owner and event manager Tori Bacheller said. “[Vinyl nights] are really great because it’s something new and different, and it brings in people of all different ages and all different walks of life.” 
For vinyl nights, Brennen and Psaledas bring their own turntables and audio equipment and several dozen records from their collections. They have records from the 1950s through the early 1990s, with genres ranging from rock ’n’ roll and metal to pop and hip-hop. 
“They change it up all the time, so we never hear the same stuff,” Bacheller said.
While the music is playing, attendees can hang out and socialize in the tap room and enjoy Pipe Dream brews and food from the brewery’s food menu like pizza, nachos and barbecue. 
At different points throughout the evening, Brennen and Psaledas will play games like music trivia and name-that-tune, with small prizes for the winners. People will be able to browse the records available that night, talk to Brennen and Psaledas about their collection, and put in requests for what they would like to hear. 
“Jayson and Pete are very friendly,” Bacheller said. “They love talking about what they’re playing and love talking to people about their music while [people] look through their records.” 
Bacheller said the vinyl nights have become one of the most popular events hosted by the brewery. 
“Sometimes at a bar, when it’s really busy, you can’t relax and can’t talk over all the people and the music,” she said. “I think people like the vinyl nights because they’re more relaxed. You can interact with the people around you and talk music and just have a fun night out.”
