As you prepare for your Thanksgiving squad, perhaps you should fortify yourself with our Squad of Quads. We'll have all three of our barrel-aged #Quadgoals on tap (Tawny Port, Moscatel and Madeira) and a small amount of our #Quadgoals as well! Get here early as these are fairly limited. Plus, look extra fancy sipping a Quad out of our limited edition, gold-rimmed, Squad of Quads 5 oz. Belgian Taster Glass.

Wake Up With Beer

Take a break from holiday shopping and join us for homemade cinnamon rolls and delicious beer. No, we didn't mistype. We discovered this taste sensation from a former seasoned army officer who swore this was the bees knees during his years of service.
Stop in early and see if you agree. We'll have large, fresh, home-made cinnamon rolls by Country Club Market available for purchase* along with suggested beer pairings. Start your Saturday morning with us.
(*While supplies last.)

Restaurant/Bar/Brewing Industry Night
Every Monday, 3 – 9 p.m.
Do you work in a restaurant, bar or brewery? We want to thank you for all that you do...because we've been there, done that and still doing it. Just prove to us you work in the industry and we'll give you 1/2 off beer every Monday.

Each Thursday we'll be featuring one of our beers infused with new flavors (check our Facebook event page for this week's inbrewsion). We're using a device called the Randall. It allows beer to flow through a chamber filled with things such as spices, hops, etc. It will add a new twist to beers we already have on tap and may inspire brand new brews. Join us for some tasty experimentation. (We are still working out the kinks on the Randall. Pours may take longer. Please be patient with our beertenders. Thanks!)
