Winter Holidaze Beer Tasting

Beer/spirits tasting

Editorial Review

The Brickskeller may be history, but its annual Winter Holidaze winter beer tasting remains the best way to sample holiday beers from the region’s breweries and brewpubs without logging a lot of miles on the car and begging friends to play designated driver.

Held at sister bar R.F.D., the tasting features a live Q&A with the brewmasters who made what’s in your glass. Tickets are $45 in advance from the R.F.D. Web site, and this event frequently sells out.
