Brewer's Night with Stone Brewing Co., Wednesday, July 9th, 5p-7p

on Thu, 07/03/2014 - 01:02

It's been over a year since we hosted our friends from Stone, and it is about time we remedied that. Founded in 1996 by Greg Koch and Steve Wagner in San Marcos, CA, Stone Brewing Co. has become almost synonymous with the craft brewing movement. Makers of some of the most highly sought-after beers, they are not afraid to experiment or break boundaries.

Join us on Wednesday, July 9th from 5pm to 7pm, as we embrace our inner gargoyles. Jay and the rest of the Stone crew will be on hand to talk beer and we’ll be tapping up some favorites and some special brews, including Stochasticity Project

Pint Defiance Pucker Party, June 25th @ 5pm

on Fri, 06/20/2014 - 18:51

In the past decade, there’s been a resurgence in that classic (some would say, the oldest) beer style, the Sour. Breweries are judged by the size of their barrel rooms, their labs, and their koelschips. We at Pint Defiance are huge fans of sour beers, and have been amassing quite the collection of kegs, and frankly, we are running out of space. Which is why we’ve made the decision to invite some of our closest friends and dearest customers (read: you!) to help us make some room in our fridge. We’ll be dedicating most of our taps to some very rare and definitely delicious sour beers.
