Intonation Release – February 29, 2020

Occurring every four years due to the earth’s revolution around the sun, us humans add an additional day to our calendar. That day is known as leap day. Since this extra day is a gift and we’re a brewery, we’ve resurrected a favorite beer of ours, INTONATION DIPA, and will release it on leap day, 2.29.2020. INTONATION DIPA is limited in quantity, therefore cans will only be available from our taprooms, starting at noon. 2020’s INTONATION DIPA features Citra, Amarillo, and Mosaic hops and 7.5% ABV. The can art was hand drawn by Troy Taproom bartender Julie Borden. Cheers to Julie for all she does.

Get Up Jack – March 17, 2020

Get Up Jack is a joyous retro-romp by six of the most energetic and charismatic performers in Irish music today. Their soaring vocals and enthusiastic performances have drawn comparisons to the old-school groups of their youth (like The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers, and The Wolfe Tones), yet it is their own unique instrumentation, style, and delivery that makes them a one-of-a-kind experience. Brown's Revolution Hall doors open at 6 pm. The Boland School of Irish Dance will perform around 6:30 pm before Get Up Jack takes the stage at 7 pm. You must be 21 years of age or older to enter and you will need to present a photo ID at the entrance. Online pre-sale tickets are $17. Tickets at the door the day of the event (if available) are $20.
Stop in early next door at Brown's Troy Taproom for the annual blessing of the bar around 5 pm!
