Free Rare Beer for School Supplies Drive, Round #weforget // Smoked Pineapple Wild Ale

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....
