Happy New Year! This January is an interesting month at the taproom because we have been fortunate enough to book a few private events. But this results in the taproom being closed to the public when it would normally be open. Let’s get to that first and then we will let you know of some other fun and interesting events we have planned.

Saturday, January 20 – Open 12-5pm – Closing at 5pm for Staff Appreciation Party

Sunday, January 21 – Open at 11:30am for Strength For Sobriety – Beer Taps closed until 2pm

Friday, January 26 – Closed to the Public at 5:30pm
Rehearsal Dinner for Run Club members Tim & Vanessa

Saturday, January 27 – Opening at late 1pm

Sunday, January 28 – Closed until 2pm – Mug Club 2023 Private Party
The hope is to have your swag by then too! Details to come soon!
