This Saturday, the brew crew down at the Speakeasy Ales & Lagers invites you to celebrate their 14th anniversary and try out their latest creation, Butchertown Black Ale!

In honor of the new beer, Speakeasy is throwing a Butchertown Hoedown. The FREE Hoedown is where you will want to get down. I’m not sure what that really means – the last time I went to a Hoedown, I was in first grade doing a Square Dance performance amidst bails of hay. This event is all ages, but somehow I think this will be a bit more adult friendly and fun. On Saturday, August 27th from 12-7 pm, the Prohibition-themed microbrewery will become an outdoor block party with live bands, the best food trucks, local sponsors, and most importantly – kegs upon kegs of cold beer.

Speakeasy Ales & Lagers is a microbrewery in San Francisco founded in 1997. If you’re a fan of their infamous beers Prohibition Ale and Big Daddy IPA, you are sure to like the new Butchertown Black Ale. Come hang out at the Hoedown and check out their awesome location this weekend. Giddy up in there!
