Beer Event – Freeze Your Pints Off – February 17th
I have been attending Freeze Your Pints Off for the past three years and I have yet to actually freeze my “pint” off. While a tiny part of me would like to see what it would be like if it were really cold, this won’t be the year either, as the high if forecast for 63 degrees. In fact, I’m sure you’ll see a couple of folks in shorts.
