This is an amazing opportunity to taste some seriously rare brews including Allagash FV-13, Bam & Bat, DC Brau’s debut of Barrel-Aged Ghouls Night Out, Smuttynose 2010 Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter, Fullsteam Fruitcake, 3 Stars Global Pandemic, Oxbow Noel 2012, Heavy Seas Barrel-Aged Siren Noire, Flying Dog Galaxy Single Hop Imperial IPA, Starr Hill Belgian Strong Ale and Schlafly Single Malt Scottish Ale on draft!

Attendees will also be treated to an endless parade of stationed and passed bites from Executive Chef Kyle Bailey & Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIsaac, ranging from oysters and charcuterie to Brat Burger sliders and flatbreads.
