Blue Sunday will now be every 2nd Sunday of the month! DJS NIGHTWITCH AND LITTLESPACEYY are back, and so are beer cocktails. Expect to hear Siouxsie, The Cure, New Order, Xmal, Ghost Dance, Depeche Mode, Killing Joke, Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, March Violets and more.
This is an ongoing thing (we actually lost count of what round this is), but it's our *first* School Supplies Drive of 2017, and the beer is special, rare, and very close to our hearts - and brewery.
YOU: Bring in school supplies, which we will donate to a local school (this months recipient is TBA)
WE: Give you a free 6oz pour of an ultra-rare beer.
The beer this month is one that we've been working on, talking about, and surreptitiously sneaking tastes of for quite some time now, but that very few have gotten to try yet....
Because even though it's a Sunday, we're giving you a super solid reason to GTFO of bed, throw on some black, and head West to Dock Street. Our pals DJs Nightwitch and Littlespaceyy will be spinning, and there will, of course, be delicious pizza and delicious beer cocktails.

Plus, we'll serve up classic Game Day specials, including wings, of the animalian and vegetarian sort.
