It’s Fall and that means it’s time to gear-up for the return of Thursday night tastings at the humble storefront. We’re thrilled to have Lone Rider and their two new seasonals here to kick off Fall!

Shotgun Betty: “Shotgun Betty uses her sharpshooting skills to target those that show a weakness for wheat beer with a body that won’t quit. This German-style Hefeweizen features a rich, banana-clove nose and refreshing dry finish. 5.8% ABV”

True Britt (seasonal): “Behind this well-mannered facade lies the heart of an outlaw. True Britt is an English-style session ale that combines spicy hop flavors with a bready, malt backbone. Always trying to stay one step ahead of the law, True Britt is never one to stick around town too long. So enjoy this pub favorite before it’s gone. 4.8% ABV”

Red Spur (seasonal): A rich amber ale balanced with a copious amount of hops. 7.3% ABV

Peacemaker Pale: “Don’t let the badge fool you, Peacemaker is popular with lawmen and outlaws alike. This well-rounded west coast style pale ale uses several hop varieties and a special blend of malts for a unique and bountiful hop aroma with a balanced bitterness. 5.7% ABV”

Sweet Josie: “As strong-willed as she is seductive, Sweet Josie knows how to draw you in then bring you to your knees. This American brown ale is a complex beer balancing a nice hop bitterness with a generous amount of chocolate and aromatic malts. 6.1% ABV”
