This Week in Beer: February 8-14, 2021

A quick reminder: To be included on our This Week in Beer listing, the event must be beer-focused. For example, a yoga session that just happens to be held in the brewery is not beer-focused. But a yoga session bundled with a pint of beer at a brewery is beer-focused. Many locations are still doing trivia, live music, and the like so check out their websites for more information on those types of events. While in the past, we only listed events here that are unique for this coming week in beer, we will be listing weekly or monthly events until further notice. Any events that are added after our Monday noon publication time will be marked New.

Monday, February 8th from 3:00-10:00 pm – All Day Happy Hour and Pizza Special at Darkness Brewing: $4 and $5 (normally $5 and $6) on all Darkness draft beers; starting at 5:00 pm, $10 for any 12″ specialty pizza from Newport Pizza Company delivered for free right to your seat.

Monday, February 8th from 7:00-9:00 pm – Beer and Burgers Class at Vom Mass Crestview Hills: This event will feature three special small-batch beers with gourmet burgers, specialty sides, and free tastings of liqueurs and spirits. Each participant will also receive special discounts on all VOM FASS purchases made during the event. Call them at (859) 331-1896 to register. The cost is $25 per person.
