One of the biggest questions we get here at WHBC is “when are you going to open more hours?” And though the events outlined below aren’t regular open hours, you have the opportunity in the next couple of months to get in here at a time when we’re usually closed and have a lot of fun!
One event is free and open to the public, one has a cover charge, and the other two require pre-sale only tickets. Check out these 4 upcoming opportunities to enjoy Your Beer, Brewed Here!
1. Early St. Patrick’s Party with the region’s premier Irish band, “Get Up Jack!”
