It's December. It's chilly, it's snowing, there are no snow tires on my truck yet, and did I mention I haven't even begun to think about gifts for people? It's the calandar's most notoriously difficult month, for all those reasons and more (like, we've got to make it almost to the end of the month before we begin our slow march back to having any daylight around here)- but, as you might have suspected, we're not rolling that way around here at Three Penny Taproom. We're ready to rock-out December like it were a beach party! For starters, we're excited to be hosting a benefit on Tuesday, December 14th for for fine folks at the Vermont Worker's Center. The VWC is a democratic, member-run organization fighting for worker's rights. They've also lead the way in organizing for universal health care for all Vermonter's over the past couple of years. A portion of our sales for the day will be donated to this vital organization, so come down and drink for a good cause!
A couple days later on Thursday the 16th we're holding our First Annual Dogfish Head Bash! We've been stocking-piling and stock-piling DFH for almost as long as we've been open, and we've finally decided that it's time to clear some room in the ol' cellar. Look for some really rare and exciting treats on draught! We'll have at least 12 different DFH brews on tap, plus a few different bottles- this is a not to be missed event!
Then, we're pleased to announce a winter solstice/full moon madness party on Tuesday, December 21st with our good friend Shaun Hill and Hill Farmstead Brewery of Greensboro, VT! We'll be pouring at least 5 of Hill Farmstead's simply incredible beers. Odds are this one will get a little wild, with the solstice and a full moon, not to mention the general mayhem of a few days before Christmas, and all that Hill Farmstead beer in one place!
And of course, to finish things out the end of the month brings on two of the busiest bar nights of the year- Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve. Both happen to fall on a Friday this time 'round. We'll be closed on both Christmas Day and New Year's Day, which really means you should be sure to stop in the night before to see old friends, kiss seldom seen family members, and celebrate the holiday season! A few more surprises out of our cellar could be pouring!
