Handpump Tuesday – Every Tuesday beginning at 11 a.m. at the inside bar
Each Tuesday, the bar features a cask from one of the brewing industry’s talented craft brewers, and bartenders serve the beer to guests the old-fashioned way – using a hand-pumped beer engine.
Keep the Glass Night! – Every Wednesday from 3 to 9 p.m.
Each week, the bar showcases an exceptional craft brewery and offers one of their special beers on tap. Guests may purchase the featured brewery’s signature glass, get a fill and take the glass home when done. The beer and brewery’s glassware vary each week.
Stone Brewer’s Cask – Every Thursday at 4 p.m. at the outside bar
A different Stone year-round release is enhanced when delicious, carefully thought-out ingredients are added to a cask and served each Thursday by the brewer who made it. Stop by to enjoy a one-of-a-kind beer and chat with the brewer about his or her creation. Brewers and beers vary each week.
