Chestnut 7 Reserve Dinner This Thursday

Gosh it's gloomy out. I'm sore as all heck from the gym.  Trying to get some fitness in to counter act all the beer events I've had this week. Next up is Chestnut 7 on Thursday night.

We're doing a Reserve Beer Dinner featuring some Allagash rarities. It's a very reasonable $45 ++.
You are able to come as you please and do the dinner. There is not one seating.
I'll arrive by 5 pm.

  1. I'm hoping you mean torrified wheat, not terrified wheat.
