1./2./3. Wyld Sisters:
This trio of Wyld Sisters are unique blends of various beer batches, each of which underwent a variety of maturation periods in oak barrels. These wooden vessels provide the perfect habitat for Brettanomyces, whose servitude artistically brings the funk. Different berry varietals were incorporated during the lengthy process to add unique fruit flavors. Cousins to last year’s Wyrd Sisters, Wyld Sisters illustrates our first blending experiment.
4. That's My Jam! Berry Sour:
Lactobacillus brings on the pucker in our newest sour selection, That's My Jam! It will tantalize your tastebuds with its unforgiving tartness, while a pronounced berry flavor rounds out this distinctly mouth-puckering experience.

Who couldn't use a night of good beer, insane laughter, and extreme inappropriateness on a Monday?
Here's the skinny:
1. Bring a team of 4-7 people and make sure one of you owns the game (all versions are welcome).
2. The first game will begin at 6:45 but come early to make sure you get a table (we open at 4p), we've only got space for about 15 teams.
3. Each team will play until 7:30 and then the first game is finished. The person on your team with the most black cards at that time wins a prize. Weeee!
4. The second game begins at 7:45 and will end at 8:30. Everyone has a clean slate for the second game and prizes will again be awarded to the winner on each team.
•You must be 21
•Someone on your team must bring the game. We have no spares.
•This game can be EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE. No joke. You'll laugh at things that will make you question the entire make up of your being. You have been warned.
•No pre sign-ups. Just come.
