This year’s tasting will be our 42nd Annual — one of the oldest and longest continuously running beer events in the country! As usual, we are pulling out all the stops to put on a very special tasting that you will not want to miss.

When the formal tasting ends, all the beers will be available for your enjoyment, so feel free to go back for repeated samples of all of your favorites!

The event will take place at the Dank Haus, and features catering from the Balkan deli: Sandys. The evening’s menu will include a buffet-style dinner. The event will take place on the 6th floor in the Skyline Lounge, with great views of the city to go along with the great brews.
