Wed. May 11th: Sure, sometimes we get to tip one back with the awesome brewers & founders behind our favorite suds, but how often do we get a performance to boot? Join us as we welcome Lagunitas Brewing Founder, Tony Magee & his guitar, for a live performance. A true entertainer, Tony’s show is a rare and amazing night out, especially if you pair it with an über-fresh pint of “Hop Stoopid”. In addition to the crowd favorite IIPA, we’ll be pouring Pilsner, “W.T.F.” & “Undercover Investigation Shut-Down” Strong Ales.
As if that’s not enough, your first taste of these delectable offerings will be from the coolest quaffin’ vessel on the planet (The Famous Lagunitas Jar) free for you to take home (while supplies last, of course)! AND some Sugar Pimp cookies in honor of our guests - gratis! So, get your butt down here for what’s sure to be a GREAT night of music and beer!
