Crush the Pin - 2018

From time-to-time, we like to play around with cask conditioned beers and share those with you in the tasting room. On April 14, we wanted to do something crazy fun...and what's more fun than 10+ new cask creations and tapping them at the same time for your enjoyment? 

This event will feature 10+ pins of real ale goodness. Expect some oddball ingredients added in the name of butchering a timeless tradition. 

One ticket is $25 and includes:
- Early access to GRB before we open to public - 11 am entry
- 10 tickets for 5 oz pours from the pins
- Brief cask education overview from Andrew Nations (founder) and Kevin Brown (brewer)
- Limited edition "Crush the Pin" taster glass

Pints will not be made available until 2 PM. Additional sample pours may be purchased between 11-2 by event ticket holders only. At 2 PM, the beer will be made available to anyone at the brewery. We'll announce a complete list of the pins that will be available as we get closer to the event. 

Additional sample pours (5 oz) will be $2
Pints (12 oz) will be $5
