Fish Tale Ales is once again hosting their annual Holiday Brass Bash at the pub down in Olympia. This year we are featuring Andy Omdahl and friends as we celebrate the holiday season. Live brass music, Christmas carols and a fun raffle can help us all to come together and toast to an amazing year and a great bunch of people here in Washington. While anyone (21 and over, of course) can attend, visitors are encouraged to bring either a non-perishable food or monetary donation to the event. All donations will go to the Thurston County Food Bank. It is a great time of year to celebrate good food, family and of course great beer! We here at Fish are so happy to be a part of this great community and are very excited to be able to give back. Also, we’ve got our new Classic series of Fish Tale Ales on tap, including Vicious Circle Amber, Beyond the Pale Ale, Hodgson’s Bitter End IPA and our seasonal Winterfish Ice Breaker. So come on down, enjoy a pint, great music and help to give back to those in need this season.
Speaking of a great year…Fish Tale has been working their magic with excellent beers and we have some great awards to show you. Just a small sampling;
