Coat Drive, Mystery Night & Beer Release Party
The 2nd half of Anniversary Week starts with Coat Drive & Mystery Night! All items donated through the coat drive go to the Salvation Army and somebody in need. Exchange your warm coats for cold brews... we'll give you a free pint for each bag of clothes. And Mystery Night is, well, a mystery. Stick around to see what happens.
Alas, the fun isn't over.
We're releasing bottles of the Outlaw Milk Stout and a Limited Edition Bottling of the Great Basin Anniversary Ale. This special brew honors 20 years of creative brewing by fusing 3 of our signature beers: Icky, Chilibeso and Harvest Ale. The result is a double IPA brewed with jalapenos and juniper berries.
