Toast the Snow!

OPM just let you out 4 hours early… now what? Fight the crowds at Whole Foods for the last roll of flax toilet paper? Re-watch season 3 of “Who’s The Boss?” It is our duty to inform you that your local pub will be (or already is) open and waiting for you to come in and keep them company.

This is an initial list of bars specializing in craft beer that will be open during Snowpocolypse. This list will be updated throughout the weekend so check back often.

On Saturday night, in honor of the fabled ‘hurricane parties’ of Key West lore, the Brickskeller will offer a truly rare opportunity:
Dogfish Head Life and Limb
Dogfish Head Limb and Life
and CHOCOLATE! (in the form of beer) Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence!”
