Before things really get crazy next week, we’re going to kick off the last week of March with creative events (check out the FREE figure drawing class on Wednesday), sweet beer releases, and a chance to do some good while you’re hanging out in the tap room.
We’re heralding the start of Charlotte Craft Beer Week (did you know it’s in its 10th year?!) with a THURSty THURSday release we’ve been excited about for a while. Once a small small batch long ago in 2017, “Gravity Rides” is being re-introduced as an official member of our IPA Series. Hop forward with notes of pine and orange/pineapple juiciness, this Double IPA is loaded with Chinook, Idaho 7 and Mosaic hops for in-your-face aromatics and a smooth mouthfeel.
We’ll keep it chill with live music by one-woman-show Laura Thurston on Friday night followed by a relaxing Saturday in which you can drink all of our available specialty batches and try out our March Featured Flight before it flies out the door!
But we’re real excited about our Birdsong Grand Prix Mario Kart Tournament on Sunday afternoon. We’re working with the cool folks at Save Point to organize a bracket-style tourney with a 50/50 winning pot! The winner will get half of the earnings while the other half will support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. We raised over $200 in December’s tournament so we’re hoping to do raise the bar this weekend!
Mario Mania: According to this website, Mario isn’t who we thought he was! The short, happy plumber was originally a carpenter AND is supposedly in his mid-20s. His brother, Luigi, on the other hand gets nothing but hand-me-downs; his suit color is borrowed from elsewhere in the original games because the makers were running out of memory!
