Black Star Line Brewing Company - Beer Tasting!
Lobby
Beer will be served from the concession stand on the 2nd floor, between the two theaters. About the beer - Our Amber's Ale collaboration between Black Star Line Brewing Company and Ponysaurus is a non-traditional, medium bodied Amber Ale. Approachable and well-balanced. Brewed with honey malts and lots of delicious citrusy hops. Be prepared to taste and smell delicious orange and tangerine notes from a combination of Mandarina Bavaria, Amarillo, Citra, and Mosaic hops. Best described as a “sweet, floral, crowd pleaser, cross-over beer, with orange on the nose.” Cheers!
