Restaurant/Bar/Brewing Industry Night
Every Monday, 3 – 9 p.m.
Do you work in a restaurant, bar or brewery? We want to thank you for all that you do...because we've been there, done that and still doing it. Just prove to us you work in the industry and we'll give you 1/2 off beer every Monday.
5:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Each Thursday we'll be featuring one of our beers infused with new flavors (check our Facebook event page for this week's inbrewsion). We're using a device called the Randall. It allows beer to flow through a chamber filled with things such as spices, hops, etc. It will add a new twist to beers we already have on tap and may inspire brand new brews. Join us for some tasty experimentation. (We are still working out the kinks on the Randall. Pours may take longer. Please be patient with our beertenders. Thanks!)
Hemingway Happy Hour
Third Wednesday of Every Month, 6-9 p.m. (Feel free to come and go.)

Bring your computer or paper and pencil and get a start on your next great novel or drawing. You don't need to be a published writer or an accomplished artist to attend. All skill levels and genres are welcome. $1 off each beer for all participants. HHH is led by 515's resident novelist, Micah Chaplin, and artist, Carter Allen. (Formerly known and Drink and Draw.)
