Celebrate Mardi Gras, try a new beer or learn all about fermentation.
"In the future, everyone will be Lüp Süp for 15 minutes. March 1st, at 4:00PM we'll be serving up the Süp in four packs of cans and on draught for your drinking pleasure. This juicy, hazy NE IPA showcases the brightest, most vibrant hops we could get our hands on. By focusing on late addition whirlpool and dry hopping, we've concocted a subtly bitter, more floral, fruity, and aromatic IPA. Come enjoy First Friday in the Crossroads with us!" From 4pm to midnight.
