Fa-La-La-Lager Holiday Hoopla Celebration Party

FaLaLaLager is back, and it's ready to party! We've had a huge year: a bronze medal from the World Beer Cup, a gold medal from the Great American Beer Festival, a completed expansion, new flagship packaging, and distribution in brand-new territories, just to name a few things! So we want YOU to help us celebrate

Join us for a night of hollyjollymerriment in the Tap Room. We'll have some special beer releases, including a specialty "holiday cheer" cask, and you can beef up your Euchre and Santa Water Pong skills in advance of the holiday in the Gulo Room aka Santa's Game Room! We'll have holiday movies on all night to really add to the ambiance. 

A special cookie+beer pairing menu will be available to delight your senses. 

Growler fills awarded to most festive outfit, so come in your best, most heinous red-green-and-tinsel sweaters, your extra large Santa hats, your actual pine bough necklaces. It's up to you how hard you're willing to try and, trust us...we'll be watching. So. 

So make sure you circle that date and come hang out with us for some beer, some games, some cookies, and some holiday-freakin-cheer. We are AMPED. 

See you under the mistletoe ;)

Tigers Bus Trip

It's Tigers bus trip time! Each ticket gets you round-trip transportation from Ann Arbor to Detroit, a ticket to the 7:10 pm game vs. the Angels (with fireworks at the end of the game!), and beer on the bus to and from the game! 

As usual, we'll make a stop at the Detroit Beer Co for some brews and food, then walk to the stadium. The bus will pick us up at a designated spot after the game. 

Yes, it is true -- this year's game is on a Saturday and not a Sunday like it usually is! Last year, it was reported to us that Monday was a little rough on some people after indulging all day on Sunday. So this way, there's an extra day of cushion AND we get fireworks! And hopefully fewer sunburns...

Tickets will be available up until a few days before the event, but this trip sells quickly! So, cap off your summer with friends, beer, and baseball! 

Tickets are available for purchase through Eventbrite.
