BATTLE OF THE BREWERIES 2
2nd semi-annual battle of the breweries
5 Breweries, 1 tavern, lots of people helped
We are coming up on our 1 year birthday! We’d like to celebrate our initial success, give something back to the community, and to kickoff the warm weather season with an amazing tap takeover that will be a blast for our customers old and new. Each brewery will bring 4 beers including some old favorites and something special for the evening. We’ll start out at 3PM with 60% off regular price and each hour we’ll lower the discount 10% until 8PM when pints will be normal price. Whichever brewery sells the most pints of beer will get a $400 match from Atlas Tavern for the charity of their choice. The second place brewery will get $200, third $150, and fourth and fifth place get $125. At Battle Of the Breweries One we gave over $3000 to charity, we are hoping to give at least $3500 at Battle 2 and hope to get to $10,000 by Battle of the Breweries 10 in 5 years.
