It’s March, which means it’s time for our 23rd annual celebration of all manner of Stouts during Stout Week from March 14-20th. During Stout Week we’ll be pouring stout flights that showcase a variety of different and unique flavors, from roasted coffee to dark chocolate and everything in between. During Stout Week we'll also be serving daily specials that will be paired with a special stout to complement the dish perfectly.
Go ahead, give in to the Dark Side.
The luck of the Irish is headed definitely your way this year as we gear up for St. Patrick’s Day from Monday, March 14th until the big celebration on Thursday, March 17th. We’ll be serving up our much loved Corned Beef and Cabbage March 14th-17th, Irish Stew on March 16th and 17th, and our decadent Stout Cake on March 14th-20th. As if that wasn't enough, on St Patrick’s Day we’ll be celebrating with $3.00 pints of McClary’s Irish Red, Outlaw Milk Stout, and Nitro Outlaw Milk Stout.

Released from its whiskey-drenched, charred oak chamber on Leap Day, February 29, 2016 – 385 Scytale is our liquid poem to the art of craft beer. Each and every ingredient has been chosen purposefully with aspirations of crafting the perfect sip. Patiently aged in whiskey barrels for precisely 385 days, 385 Scytale is a faceted gem of nuanced aromas and tastes, boldly roasted chocolate malts, deep dark whiskey, molasses and boundless, brazenly-rich oakiness. Semisweet chocolate, vanilla, and dark stone fruits arrive upon subsequent sips, and as you delve into the unending subtly of licorice, honey, and allspice, you’re left with smooth caramel that saunters on the palate.
This is one brew you do not want to miss. Get this limited edition beer while it lasts beginning in late March.
