Growlers and Tastings Report: March 9, 2012

● For tonight’s Friday Night Flights at Party Town in Florence, they will be…

…launching Aurora Indiana’s Great Crescent Brewing Co. For this “Back Room Brawl” we will be, once again, keeping things local. But this time we are pulling out all the stops. Being an all draft event, proceeds from all Great Crescent growler pours will be donated directly to Tri-state tornado victims. Brewer/Owner, Dan Valas will be here for the kick-off. Also joining us will be Browning’s Country Hams of Dry Ridge, and NKY’s legendary The Colonial Cottage of Erlanger. They will be providing some delicious local tastes to go along with some stellar local brews in support of our neighbors who need our help. Join us tomorrow, Friday March 9th from 6:00-8:00p.m. The cost as always is $2.00 but donations are welcome.
