July Beer Share


Join us at District Made Distilling for our July share! We're thrilled to partner with Alex and the team for a slight departure from the usual trappings of craft beer. Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly. Space is limited, so don't wait to secure your spot. We won't be in the main area, so make sure to reserve your spot sooner rather than later. We can't wait to see you there!

As always you MUST RSVP, as all parties involved need to know how many people to expect. The space is limited, as we will not be on the main floor/taproom, so make sure you reserve your spot sooner rather than later. 

Thank you District Made!

Our next Women's Brew Culture Club will be at Denizens Riverdale on July 22nd from 2-4pm! Julie will be our host and will show us around an amazing variety of beers, including the crisp, hoppy, fruity, and funky. Something for everyone and every palate! Please reach out to brandy@dcbeer.com for questions and to rsvp.

Also, Denizens is celebrating 9 years all day on July 15th with a 90's themed party. Look for giveaways, a DJ spinning 90's tunes, and prizes for people dressed in their best 90's outfits, so synchronize your watches! But wait, there’s more! It’s the perfect time to stock up with 10% off to-go sales of six packs and growlers starting Friday, 6/30 through Monday, 7/3.
