  •  Friday, March 13th. Varsity Barleywine & Shadow Puppet Release. Town Brewing Company. 2 pm-11 pm. Intensely malty and complex, this rich barleywine boasts notes of caramel, toffee, orange marmalade, and dried dates. Chinook hops provide a pleasant balance to the malt sweetness. A rich, velvety body and smooth warmth from the alcohol combine to make this great sipper that will age gracefully for as long as you can resist popping the cap. Barleywine is life! Don’t let your eyes deceive you! While dark in hue, Shadow Puppets is a far cry from the boozy, sweet pastry stouts that have come to dominate the dark beer landscape in recent years. This sessionable, Czech-inspired dark lager balances rich malt character and light roast with the pleasantly mild flavor and bitterness of Saaz hops. The result is a smooth, easy-drinking dark beer with the refreshingly crisp finish that lovers of lagers crave.

  • Thursday, March 14th. St. Pat’s Day Return of the Emerald Curtain! Red Clay Ciderworks. 12 pm-11 pm. Our St. Patrick’s Day small-batch, The Emerald Curtain, is making its return for year 3!

    This all-natural, green-inspired, semi-dry cider starts with sweet & tart kiwi, moves to cool cucumber in the middle, and culminates in a citrusy lime finish.

    Happy St Pat’s Day!
