The Abyss Beckons You…

Event game on point this week, yo. First up on Thursday, May 2nd from 5-8pm, we’re tapping a 2016 Abyss keg from Deschutes, along with their Da Shootz. Folks, that’s an over two-year-old stout aged in Bourbon, Oregon Oak, & Pinot Noir casks. Ho. Lee. Cow. Then on Friday, we welcome in Adelbert’s as we feature their Tres Hombres IPA (Citra, Simcoe, and Denali-hopped) and Naked Nun for a Texas Pint Night. Then all day long on Saturday, May the 4th be with you (and also with you) as we feature cans (and glassware) of Bishop’s Dark Cide for $4 on-site consumption. All too easy…

And mark your calendars for Monday, May 6, as we bring back another Style Night with the Beer Museum. This month, it’ll be a little-known style called the Eye Pee Ay? Is that right? We’ll have to check the spelling. Don’t miss this event, as we explore the many varying styles of IPAs, from West Coast, East Coast, Brut & Fruit. We’ll cover the history of IPAs from Old England to California to New England then back to California as we sip on hoppy suds. Tickets are $20 and can be bought here. This event will sell out.

Finally, as we roll over into May, we have a new Brewery of the Month: Friends and Allies! Pick up sixers of their Urban Chicken, Springdale, Fresh Coast, and Noisy Cricket RIGHT NOW for $6.99. All May!
