Capital Tap Haus: Join Capital Brewery Brewmaster, Kirby Nelson, at the Capital Tap Haus, 107 State Street, on Friday, August 12th from 5-7pm and sample (direct from the lagering tank) 2011 Eternal Flame. ***You may (or may not) want to note that the first 50 people through the door receive a complimentary Capital Brewery souvenir glass. They are also running $2.50 pints of Supper Club all day as well.
The Beer Spot at Brickhouse: It turns out that announcing Half Acre was a little premature. As it turns out, they will not be at Brickhouse. You can go here to find out the taplist for Nebraska Brewing Co.
Tipsy Cow: Rumor has it that Dark Horse and Furthermore will be joining New Holland. This is unconfirmed by anyone "official" but the source is pretty reliable. Would someone "Official" (Aran?) like to confirm?
Finally, you can win some tickets to the Great Taste. How? I'm glad you asked:
