The Official Prairie Artisan Ales Alexandria Launch!
Thursday, July 20th
@ 5 PM
Join us on Thursday, July 20th as we host the official Alexandria debut of one of our favorite breweries, Prairie Artisan Ales. On this night, we’ll pour 6 different Prairie beers for the very first time in Alexandria!
Highlighting the list are two versions of the inimitable Prairie Bomb! Rated one of the top 100 beers in the world, this decadently rich Imperial Stout finished with espresso beans, chocolate, vanilla and ancho chili peppers. Not to be outdone, we’ll also pour Birthday Bomb!, a limited release variant finished with caramel sauce.
Other highlights include Paradise Imperial Stout, aged on toasted coconut and vanilla; and ‘Merica, a dry-hopped Saison brewed exclusively with international ingredients.
There is no admission fee for this event. All Prairie beers will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.
