Beer Tastings...

Our Beer Tastings & other good stuff:

Tap Socials: Usually on Thursday and 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.

Beer Samplings: These tastings are sometimes on Fridays and always on Saturdays, usually all day 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.

Sometimes there’s a rep & sometimes they bring free swag.

Tap Takeovers: Usually take place on Thursday and/or Saturday nights, 7-9pm or so. We’ll tap anywhere from 15 to 35 + beers!

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!

Friday, July 20   7-9pm     Call to reserve your spot!   1-800-446-9463!   

$20 Per Person-   Small Bites Provided by The Blue Crab Grill!

Rum is made from sugar cane, and spans the gamut from clear, almost vodka like to rich and full of character.   The lighter styles are typically used for mixed drinks, while the aged  varieties are quite special to sip neat.  We’ll take a tour of the islands and also have some from the states.  Click here to see what Difford’s Guide has to say about rums.
