Drink Local: November 26-December 2


I'm sure everyone is still recovering from Thanksgiving feast overload, but hopefully you left room for more beer, because there are still fun things happening this week (can we talk about how it's already December?!)! The calendar includes special beer tappings, multiple charitable events, a rock-paper-scissors tournament, tree lighting ceremony, a No-Shave-November party, and even a Goat Patch guest spot at Benny's dive bar (to name a few). Even though Thanksgiving is over, get out and enjoy this wonderful beer community that we are so thankful for!
