3rd Annual Imperial Stout Festival


We invite you to join us on Friday, December 5th for the kickoff of our 3rd Annual Imperial Stout Festival. We're going all out this year with 10 days of Stouts. We'll be tapping 2-3 new kegs a day, and we'll be featuring some special bottle pours throughout the week. So come by a few times and try them all!

We're kicking it off with some local legends: We'll be launching the 2nd Batch of GABF Medal Winner Grimm Artisanal Double Negative. To make it even better we'll be pouring it alongside Double Negative Batch # 1.  We'll also be tapping a 2012 Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout,  a 2013 Barrier Morticia and we'll have bottle pours of 2013 Brooklyn Black Ops
