National Beer Day is April 7th, whatever that means. Shouldn’t that be every day?

We have added a couple of new happenings to our EVENTS page! Just in case you wanted to plan ahead…


Shoe Tree Brewing has introduced West Coast Randy. A new IPA with an aroma that  is a blend of pine, citrus and peach. 6.8% ABV and 82 IBUs.

Lead Dog Brewing has released Pineapple Passion in cans. This is a milkshake NE DIPA with loads of pineapple and an awesome blended yeast. Available in the taproom with distribution soon.

Mammoth Brewing Co has released a couple of new beers.  Rad Eye Coffee Porter has dark and sultry chocolate tones from Perla Negra and Patagonia Dark Chocolate specialty malts with rich Brazilian Roast coffee from Black Velvet Coffee.
Also, Sassamanesh Pale Ale which means “cranberry” in Nausset uses their  Yosemite Pale Ale as the base beer with added organic cranberries from the Pacific Northwest . Rather than juicy and sweet like many fruit beers, the cranberries are dry, slightly tart, and compliment the bitterness of the hops perfectly.


10 Torr Distilling & Brewing received a Bronze Medal at the 2018 American Distilling Institute for their Vodka in the Grain-to-Glass Vodka, Neutral Character category.

Under the Rose Brewing Co. is officially open at their new location in Midtown at 1041 S Virginia.
They are open 7 days a week, 11 am to Midnight.
The 4th Street brewery location has also changed their hours and will only be open Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 PM starting April 14. This weekend they will be open Fri. – Sun.
