These Are the Beers You’re Looking For

Dig Hi Sign Brewing? Like Red Horn? You’re in luck, cuz we got a collab from the two breweries, 3-CPO IIPA. And we have it on tap for a Pint Night on Thursday, 2/21, along with Hi Sign’s Violet and Red Horn’s Mexican Amber (Note: last week’s newsletter incorrectly listed this event as Friday, 2/22. Don’t believe those lies. #FakeNews!).

But if you can’t make it in Thursday, how about Friday? Our Brewery of the Month, NXNW, drops by to feature their Red Zeppelin and Dank Sinatra IPA. And speaking of NXNW, keep buying their 6pks of Northern Lights, Red Zeppelin, and Zombie Dragon for $6.99. Yowza!

Finally, Wednesday, February 27th, will be our last week for Geeks Who Drink trivia. Le sad. We’ve had a fantastic two-year run with our quizmaster Lindsay and all of our weekly regulars. Thank you to everyone who came out to this irreverent bit of fun and frivolity every week, and if you haven’t been in a while, let’s blow this sucker out one last time.
