WIDR Sliders Brew 2!

April 15th, 2012

Click for our Facebook event

Are you stoked for this? We sure are and we thought you might want a few more details about how this bad boy is doing down.

Admission is $15, which gets you a souvenir tasting glass to use at the event and ten food/drink tickets. Each ticket is good for a beer sample or a slider, and you can use them in any configuration you like. There is a small chance that one or two of the rarer and more exclusive beers may end up being two tickets, but we’ll let you know if that happens and which beers fall into that category. After that, if you’re looking for more, additional strips of five tickets are available for $5.

Keep checking back with us, as tomorrow we’ll be letting you in on some of the brews and the truly amazing sliders Chef Bill and crew will be busting out. Feel free to stop by our Facebook event and let us know that you and all of your hooligan friends will be there.
