Drink Local: March 4-10

IMG_4494.jpg

This is an exciting week to start off a new month. We got a much needed dumping of snow (I'm personally extending Stout month accordingly), we get to celebrate Fat Tuesday, and it's daylight savings on Sunday (ok maybe losing an hour isn't all that good).We have a few unique highlights this week include Laugh Your Brass Off comedy at Brass Brewing, the Mango Golden Sour release and pairing at Bristol, a Girl Scout cookie pairing at Dueces Wild, and Fasching Week celebrations at Black Forest with themed trivia, games, food and a costume contest (don't know what Fasching is? Read more here.). You can also join Goat Patch with boxing military care packages, and meet mayoral candidates throughout the week at Local Relic! * Denotes a recurring event*** Denotes that a ticket or advanced purchase is required/suggested
