It’s hard to believe this is our 14th Annual Black Party! Like every Black Party in the past, we’ll be celebrating the darkest-hued, deepest, richest beers we make. It’s an all-day, ages 21+ party in our Taproom from 11am-2am. Your paid entry ($10 for General Public, $8 for 2015 Mug Club Members) nets you access to the event & its entertainment, a complimentary, commemorative Black Party pint glass & your first pint of any Class 1 beer. The deli will be serving up our famed Dirty Bastard bratwurst, along with some other special goodies just for the party. Expect to see a Taplist dominated by our darkest: KBS, CBS, Black Rye, Dark Penance, Oatmeal Stout, Frangelic Stout, All Night IPA, Breakfast Stout, Imperial Stout, Porter & many, MANY more!

Angela Sheik (5:15-6:10pm)
