Unique Beer Tasting Tonight
Greg Eccles, owner of Tops Liquors and Taste of Tops just got back from camp. We aren't just talking about your normal singing-songs-by-the-campfire camp either, we're talking about Beer Camp! Eccles spent a couple days with a few other campers in Chico, CA, at Sierra Nevada's beer camp, where they had the opportunity to brew their own beer with some of the best. Tonight you have the chance to sample some of that very beer yourself at Taste of Tops. The special batch of Sierra Nevada Almond Maerzen will be on hand for tasting starting at 6 p.m. Click here for more details.
Visit the Beer Camp website for your own chance to enter to win a trip to Chico for your own Beer Camp experience. You'd better hurry, though -- the deadline for entries is today.
