Hip Hop Showcase: The Perceptionists, Paten Locke & Ben Shorr

April 28th from 7-11pm
Food Trucks People’s Bao and Timber Pizza

We are throwing an epic hip hop show and dropping some sick new beers/collabs on April 28th. Join us at the brewery for an evening celebrating everything hip hop. Mr. Lif & Akrobatik are The Perceptionists and they are headlining an amazing lineup of extremely talented artists including Ben Shorr, World of Light Media, Keenan Orr and DJ Smudge. We will also have art from local artists and food trucks on site to round out the evening. Tickets are going to be extremely limited and there are various ticket options to allow you to customize your experience. $15 General Admission gets you in the door and your first beer. You can pre-purchase 5 additional beer tickets to help you skip the beer line and spend more time with beers and less time waiting. Additionally, there is a VIP option that gets you in the door an hour early, a custom glass and a 4-pack of each of the collab releases to pick up at the end of the event (4 4-packs in total). The VIP experience is extremely limited and will sell out quickly, so don’t miss this awesome opportunity.”
