Savory smokiness joins with chocolate, java, and caramel to produce a great smoked porter. ABV 6.7%. We’ll also have some giveaway’s while supplies last.

Fifty West Brewing Company    Penny Lane Patio Party

Our friends from Fifty West are bringing Penny Lane to the patio and we’ll be serving up pints of their award-winning Going Plaid Scotch Ale & Lehr’s sausage. The sausage is locally made with Going Plaid Scotch Ale and the chef from Fifty West is creating some special toppings.  Someone from Fifty West will be on hand to talk about beer and they’re bringing some fun swag to give away while supplies last.

Going Plaid Scotch Ale, ABV:8.5% | IBU:23

Pours a dark honey color. Expect a fruity apple and pear aroma followed by a malt-forward flavor of juicy fresh plums.

Rhinegeist     Keep The Pint Night

We’re featuring Saber Tooth Tiger Double IPA and you can keep the branded snifter with purchase. (Limit one per guest while supplies last) You can pair the beer with our special steak tacos topped with mango papaya jalapeno salsa.

Saber Tooth Tiger Double IPA ABV 8.5% | IBU 95

Prehistorically hopped Imperial IPA that attacks the senses with potent notes of Papaya, Mango, and Peach yet it finishes its prey (your palate) with a crisp clean citrus bitterness.

Urban Artifact     Pork & Sour Night

We’re featuring the highly sought after Squeezebox American Wild Ale paired with a braised pulled pork sandwich.

Squeezebox American Wild Ale   ABV 7.1%

Described as a Strawberry sour bomb, made with bushels and bushels of fresh strawberries.  This highly sought after sour was made in very small batches and is the perfect blend of sweet and tart.
