Drink Local: March 25-31

It's the last week in March and things are slowing down a bit - Compared to the last two drinking-heavy weeks, anyways!Some highlights include Black Forest Brewing's first anniversary party, Bristol's fundraiser for Barkabull and Happy Cats Haven, and a variety of fun beer releases. We celebrated the first day of Spring recently and with that we see a rise in light, fruit-inspired beers, like the Fruity Pebbles Kolsch being released at Local Relic. For those still stuck on darker winter beer, FH Beerworks is releasing a Cinnamon Bun White Milkshake Stout.That's not all though, so keep reading for everything else happening around town this week! Jump to a day:
