For our second in this incredible series collab on Wednesday, October 25th at 7:00pm we’ll be partnering up with Ponysaurus Brewing! These brewmasters beers are as creative as their name suggests folks and aim to generate flavors that are meant to be savored, appreciated, contemplated, philosophized, studied, nuzzled, & mindfully guzzled. We’ve already partnered with Ponysaurus once this year, but as they say “so nice, we’re doing it twice” and you don’t want to miss it! We’ll be releasing the full menu and beer line-up soon so stay tuned!
