April Newsletter

Bier – tasty, delicious, refreshing, relaxing, and the only reason we wake up every afternoon! Not sure where the month of March disappeared too, but we are excited to see April as it’s one month closer to summer, and this month is jam-packed with awesome events for your enjoyment!

Patio Opening
We are keeping a close eye on the weather and as soon as Mother Nature keeps it nice, the patio will open up. We are as anxious as you are to sit outside with our favorite brew and watch the river flow by! Stay tuned to Facebook for an official opening date.

Changing of the Biers
Since Old Man Winter should be packed his bags and leaving on a jet plane, it’s time to welcome in this season’s biers. The Vienna Lager is anxious to return our tap list, and the Bier de Garde is also hanging out in the batter’s box ready to hit the summer home run. Mrs. Monk’s Chocolate Stout will also make another visit to our tap line up.

New Bier Release
Making it’s debut at the end of April, will be the next bier in our Limited Edition Imperial Line. Ludmila (lood-mee-la), Grandma Monk’s bier is hand-crafted based on the personality of Leo’s grandmother. A sweet, unassuming, and remarkable woman who, upon her death, was discovered to be a secret bootlegger! This beautiful golden lager will feature a laid-back reserved flavor with sweet hints of vanilla and a smooth bourbon finish.
