Staring today you are encouraged to make the trip into Hopworks Urban Brewery to congratulate them on three years of commitment to saving the environment one pint at a time. Other upcoming events include, Flyers making a trip to Beveridge Place Pub and Fort George’s celebratory foray into the can distribution by partying at Saraveza.

As always if you don’t see an upcoming event on the calendar email us (see above) and we will get right on it!
