And speaking of record-store-related events, the band Yo La Tengo is apparently really into supporting small/local record shops, so as a result of us having a small record shop in our taproom, we've got tickets (real, physical, paper tickets) on sale for their upcoming local shows! The shows themselves are June 18th and 19th at The Paradise and tickets are $30 each, so come grab one!
And speaking of beer, we've got another dang beer release! This one's a beer we brewed as a one-off** about a year ago and we've gotten a whole buncha questions about it and/or requests to bring it back and anyway starting on Saturday we'll have Fixation on Red Ale back on draft and in cans! In cased you missed this one the first time around, it's a red ale (duh) that we brewed as a collab with our friends in The Red Chord, and it was originally brewed for the Decibel Beer and Metal Fest last year but we ain't immune to "popular demand"*** and now it's back! And the release just so happens to coincide with the Band Hangouts that we're doin' with The Red Chord, but we'll get to that in a minute.
And then on Friday we don't have any big events going on, but we do have Sekali in the house and that qualifies as an event in its own right (on account of their food is very very good and also they're super nice), so come snack with us!
Then on Saturday we've got Adriano's Tacos joining us for the afternoon and we've got Band Hangouts in the evening! (There will be some overlap between the two.) For the Band Hangs this month - which feature The Red Chord, Brain Famine, Bonginator, and Blood Tithe - we've decided to "mix things up" in a variety of ways, and one of those ways is that two of the guys from The Red Chord (specifically Greg and Gunface) wanted to host their own trivia night and despite being told by several people that doing so would be "a mistake," we decided to go for it! Anyway we're gonna have all the normal Band Hangout stuff (bands, hanging out, you know the drill) and also Obnoxious Trivia or whatever they're calling it AND we're rereleasing Fixation On Red Ale AND there's gonna be tacos, so you should swing by on Saturday!
** Aren't they all (yes)
*** Though looking at the beers we've been making for the past seven years, you could easily assume that we are in fact immune to popular demand
