High Times with Hi Sign’s Hi-C IPA

Make some new memories with our friends at Hi Sign brewing co. On, we’ll be pouring frosty pints of their latest brew, Hi-C. Unlike the sugary fruit beverage of your childhood, when we say this HI-C is juicy–we mean it’s a super hazy, super refreshing New England style IPA. Come early, stay late, and relive the good ol’ days.

Also, join our friends at Armadillo Ale Works TONIGHT (9/26) for a pint night featuring a truly special beer, Armadillo Ale Works’ Greenbelt Farmhouse Wheat. A delightful, full-bodied wheat topped off with a slight, Belgium farmhouse funk, it’s the perfect brew to cap off a long workday. In addition to cold pints of Greenbelt, we’ll be sampling Armadillo’s Dapper Apple amber and the Land Yacht IPA. 

Also, our Brewery of the Month deal is on its final week!  Enjoy Tupps six-packs, including the Citra Pale, Tupps IPA, and National Standard American Ale, each just $6.99.
