The Big North 2018



What: Held annually (this is year 3) this party is about showing all of those who support us the widest view of our landscape. We concoct a bunch of new beers, pull favorites from the cooler, book bands we like to dance to, and expand our weirdest edges to fold you in. Held at our facility on Balmoral, year one was about showing you the production space, in year two we unveiled the tap room, and this year we'll share how it all works together in the pursuit of our duality. 

When: Saturday August 18th, from 4-9pm *last call will be at 8:30*

Where: The Half Acre Beer Company production facility. (2050 W. Balmoral Avenue) 

Tickets: at this link

Free Bike Parking: We are providing bike racks in the street on Rascher Avenue. Bring your own lock. We will not be responsible for anything that may happen to your bike while it's parked for the party.

The Beer: All of the beer at this event is first come first serve. Some of it, especially the barrel aged and wyld beers, is limited and when it's gone it's gone. We will do our best to make it last.
