What’s Happening & WHERE This Week in Craft Beer!
WEDNESDAY, August 24th
- Bike, Hike, and Brews at Hagley Museum and Library

For the last time in 2016, Bike, Hike, and Brews adds to the fun with Dogfish Head beers and special menu items at the Belin House Organic Café.

Yards PYNK is a beer like no other. We add 3,300 pounds of sour and sweet cherries and raspberries to each batch, resulting in a tart berry ale that’s effervescent and pleasantly pink in color. Delighting the palate, this light-bodied brew finishes refreshingly dry. We are proud to donate 1 dollar from every case and 5 cents from every pint of PYNK sold to breast cancer research and awareness. Since 2013, we’ve raised over $18,000 for the Tyanna Foundation!
TUESDAY, August 30th
