Come celebrate with these guys, Chris and Jim, as we release their porter, Paint It Black, on Friday, April 27, at 5 pm. Get $1 off of all full pours of this delicious beer from its launch on Friday through the rest of the weekend. We’ll also have a cask of Paint It Black with added cacao nibs and toasted coconut.

And don’t forget that the entry deadline for our second homebrew contest is coming up at the beginning of June. Have you brewed your entry yet?

The FCA homebrew contest is back

This homebrewer and his buddy got to brew their porter with us a few weeks ago and we’ll be releasing their beer in the tap room soon. Now’s your chance!

We’re running our homebrew competition again, so fire up your kettles. We’ll accept entries during our regular business hours between Saturday, June 9, and Sunday, June 17.

Winners will be announced Saturday, July 14. For details and entry forms, go here.

Changing up trivia night

Okay, okay, the music trivia was pretty specialized and maybe a little too tough. So this week we’re gonna change it up a little with more general-knowledge questions. This isn’t to say we’ll never have a music round again, but we were starting to have a hard time coming up with new questions that didn’t get too obscure. Come try this new format. We start at 7:30 pm on Thursday night.
