Weekend off the Wagon in your inbox, every Friday
The holidays are upon us, people, and you don’t need the Christmas music already being played at your convenience store to tell you that.
It’s the time for big beers and roasted meats!
Night of the Bastards–a tap takeover by Stone Brewing Company–is happening for your enjoyment tonight at Freshcraft. Besides the eight taps of rare and unique beers, there will also be limited bottle pours of Crime and Punishment, two Bastards brewed with peppers aged in bourbon barrels.
There’s something epic to do every day this weekend, so buy your tickets and make room in your daily planner for some well deserved libations. Cheers!
