They will celebrate their one year anniversary Saturday March 8th at Midnight Brewery starting at 1pm.  Midnight will tap two special cask beers to mark the occasion:

  • “Not My Job” Brown Ale with fresh ginger and Nugget hops from Piedmont Hops.
  • Purdy Mechanic IPA with fresh pineapple and Amarillo hops.

The first pin will be tapped around 1:30pm and the second depending on size of crowd but most likely by 3pm. Station 2 will be on site serving up delicious burgers.  So head out and raise a glass.
