Two more current events to share:
Tonight (Wednesday): Meet the Brewers’ party with Nebraska Brewing Company at Bricktop. Keg is tapped at 5PM Tonight!
Featuring a very special Gravity keg for us with their Brown Ale dry hopped in the keg with Cascade and Chinook hops.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Don’t forget to stop by during the evening at Misty’s Downtown for the Modern Monks’ Grand Opening!! Starts at 5:30PM.
Buy your first beer at regular price, keep the glass and get $2 refills. Stay for dinner and leave sporting a cool new Monks & Misty’s t-shirt.
The June meeting is now set for Thursday, June 3rd, at Misty’s Steakhouse & Brewery. Meeting to start at 7 pm. Not sure how much of a secret it is anymore… the Modern Monks have taken over the brewing operation. Two MM brews are available and two more are in the fermenters and should be available by meeting time.
Misty’s is located in the Crane River restaurant – an early meeting place to the Lincoln Lagers. So, this will be a nostalgic return “home” for many in the club.
See you on June 3rd!
