The Tattooed Moose continues its new beer 'n' music series this week with tasty stuff from Brooklyn Brewery and two local musical acts.
On Sept. 14, Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent (a.k.a. Shovels & Rope) played two sets to a packed room as part of the special event. The eclectic Dogfish Head Brewing presented a number of seasonals and high-gravity specialties. On Tues. Oct. 12, local band the Shaniqua Brown and acoustic singer/guitarist Jeff Riddle (of Steve Hit Mike) will handle things from the stage area.
Brooklyn Brewery started making beer in New York City in 1987. The business has come a long way from the days when they distributed six-packs of Brooklyn Lager from the back of a van. The brewery sold more than one million cases last year. They've recently expanded their facilities, doubling their previous size.
The series bash is designed to promote the Moose's Good Beer events, which include local performers and deals on craft-brewed micros and imports. The late-evening evening gigs happen weekly through October. The suds and tunes start flowing at 8 p.m. Free admission.
