We are planning a few big events for the month of May and hope some of you beer geeks can join us! We will be celebrating Cinco De Mayo with some great craft beer specials including $13.00 pitchers, $4 Oberon and Two Hearted, and $4 Sun King Cans. Cinco de Mayo is always a good time over here so we might as well drink well while fiestaing. We will also start our first official week of Tuesday Night Trivia. The 10 week season will begin May 8th with Bells sponsoring the event. If you are not sure about how our trivia night works, come in on May 1st for a preseason round that still has great prizes and is being sponsored by our friends over at Flat12. Mark always brings in great brew, so make sure and at least check out the taps!
