cheese maven pop-up

Our friend Joanna, the Cheese Maven, really knows her charcuterie.

On January 25th from 4PM to 8PM we'll have her in our taproom serving up cheese and meats to the masses! Her pop-up will include $10 made-to-order cheese boards, with a $2 add-on for meat. The cheese is sliced fresh in front of you with lots of care by Joanna! We'll have a special beer flight arranged especially to compliment the flavors of the cheese for $8 each. How could it get any better?

big teeth film fest

Join us for a night of viewing independent short films (all under 5 minutes in length) all while enjoying delicious craft beer in the truly unique setting of Empirical Brewery's back brewing space.

After receiving more than 130 film submissions from all over the world, with a range of genres and mediums - from comedy to science fiction, live action to animation and more - we've narrowed down the cream of the crop into one live screening. Now we need your help selecting winners.

Come, watch, drink, enjoy and vote.

Doors to the back brewery space (where the screening will be held) open at 6:30 PM, so you have plenty of time to get a drink and grab a seat. The show will start shortly after 7pm.

More info about the fest and tickets can be found at http://www.bigteethsmallshorts.com/screenings
