We love our September Brewery of the Month so much that we’re throwing them a party. This Thursday from 5-8m in our taproom, join the fine folks of Tupps brewing company for pints of an IPA so hazy, you’d think it was juice– THE Tupps DDH IPA #13. We’ll also be pouring samples of their special BOTM beers, including the Citra Pale, Tupps IPA, and National Standard American Ale. If you like em’ we’ll let you take a sixer home for just $6.99, plus a commemorative Tupps pint glass!
Can’t make the festivities? Fret not! Our Tupps Brewery of the Month deal continues throughout September.
Join WhichCraft and The Beer Museum on Wednesday September 18 as we explore the varied and unique beers of the Belgian region. We’ll cover the history of Belgian beers from Trappist styles to specific regional styles and learn how Belgian beer became such a unique phenomenon in the beer world. Tickets available here.
