When: Tuesday, July 5th – 6pm-9pm
Where: HopCat Lincoln, 601 P Street
Come check out Nebraska’s most epic taphouse, with over 130 taps of beer!
We will be located in the private side room, and your Homebrew is allowed (but, in that room only)!
HopCat is putting together a couple special keg tappings for Tuesday night to welcome us! Rumor is that… one might be a well-respected Saison imported from Belgium, and the other is something domestic, a one-time brew, a beer we know quite well, perhaps even inside-and-out. But… stay tuned… we’re not spoiling the secret yet.
