Have you ever come across old beer bottles and cans at antique stores? I've always loved looking at the labels of long-lost, once-ubiquitous regional brands, and often tried to imagine what they tasted like. What was beer culture like before the mega-brands took over? I get a little nostalgic for earlier times.
Along with the free tasting of this blast-from-the-past brew, there's a special one-night art exhibition by local photographer William LeGoullon, "A-1 Country," which explores the history of the beer. There will be local DJs spinning tunes as well.
