Feeling refreshed yet after GABF weekend? I know we’re still feeling it, but that doesn’t mean we’re not ready to keep the fun rolling here at the Wagon. Between festivals and anniversary parties, this weekend should help keep you nice and toasty.
The Fresh Hop Fest at Falling Rock Tap House is this Saturday, so you really should taste the fresh hop beers of Strange, Crazy Mountain, Ska, Great Divide, Full Sail and many more. Still broke? There’s still time to win tickets! Enter the raffle and get lucky!
Now stop freaking out about the frozen water on the ground (it’s glorious, we know) and go and have some fun this weekend! Cheers!
There isn’t anything going on the entire weekend, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a three-day long fiesta (or siesta) in your pj’s at home.
