Hey folks, just a quick update for you. Our musical performer for Saturday night had to reschedule and will not be appearing tomorrow. Instead, we will feature our brand new beers: Huge Tracts of Land (our imperial blonde), Go USA! (our Vienna lager) and Manchester Red. Those and five other FSBC beers will be on tap for your enjoyment. See you at the brewery!

You don’t want to miss this show! 3) We will be closing Saturday from 5:30 to 10:00 for a private event. We’re sorry for any inconvenience, but you can feel free to stop in before or after. We’ll see you all at the Brewery! Cheers!
