Thanks to everyone who came out for our Red, White, and Blue tasting this week!  We shared a wide range of styles and flavors that we love at this patriotic event.  Each offering had fans since they were all so drastically different, from Sweetwater Blue toGreen Flash Hop Head Red.

We’ll be open NORMAL HOURS today for all of your emergency beer needs!  Every good cookout and fireworks show on the 4th needs a few good beers, so stop by and see us if you happen to be out and about today.

We’re just one week away from our anniversary party and that means it’s time to get another charity raffle rolling!  Entries are $5, just like last year, and each entry gives you a chance to win a box of twelve limited releases from this past year.  We’ve included a list of local charities on each entry because we want you to decide where the donation should go each year.  There’s no limit on the number of entries per person and we have a full list of brews at the store.

On July 11th, we’ll be joined by Brewery 85 for our anniversary tap takeover from 2-6 PM!  You won’t want to miss out because they’re bringing their A-game to help us celebrate.  We’ll have several of their kegs on tap for your enjoyment as well as a cask of Quittin’ Time with a special surprise!  There will be door prizes throughout the day and we’ll finish at 6 PM by drawing the winner of the charity basket.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks again,
