Beer Tastings...

Our Beer Tastings & other good stuff:

Tap Socials: Usually on Thursday and sometimes on Friday, 4:30-6:30pm but check schedule to confirm as times may change. For $5, unlimited sampling of a featured brewery, get a brewery glass, and  sometimes there’s brewery swag & discussion w/ the rep, brewer.

Super Tap Socials: Usually on Saturday, 4:30-6:30pm but check schedule to confirm as day, times may change. Unlimited sampling of a featured brewery, get a brewery glass, and  sometimes there’s brewery swag & discussion w/ the rep, brewer.

Brewery Spotlights: These tastings are usually on Fridays and Saturdays, in the afternoon, and may be draft and/ or bottles. We charge 1 penny (because we aren’t allowed to give away alcoholic beverages) and the samples are limited to a decent tasting. Most of the time there’s a rep & sometimes they bring free swag.

Tap Takeovers: Usually take place on Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights, 7-9pm or so. We’ll tap anywhere from 15 to 35 + beers!  Tasting fee varies. The draft selection may be all one brewery, several from a region or we may do a themed selection (like Christmas Beers). Sometimes there’s food (pizza, brats, etc), snacks (pretzels, chips, cheese, etc), brewery swag, brewers, reps, drawings, silent auction tables. We charge a little bit more these tastings, maybe $10 to $20 but it’s a great deal and lots of fun!

Sit-Down Beer Tastings: Limited seating, reservation required tasting.
