Pint Defiance 5th Anniversary Party, Saturday, Sept. 23rd

Hard to believe it’s been five years. Five years of slinging pints of awesome brews, five years of special bottle releases, five years of crazy fun Brewer’s Nights. But for our 5th anniversary we are going to attempt to top all of those combined. Join us all day, Sept. 23rd, for a birthday bash of epic proportions. We will be tapping up a whole lineup of special brews, including some selections from our cellar. And it will be the grand debut of pFriem Pint Defiance IPA—in bottles and on tap!—brewed in collaboration with Scott Travis, Barry Watson (yes, THAT Scott and Barry), and the pFriem crew, exclusively available here only. You won’t want to miss this epic day of awesome beers, high fives, hugs, laughs, and surprises. It’s a celebration of all the friends we’ve made over this past five years, we couldn’t have done it without your support. Cheers!
