Crane Brewing Company is hosting its third annual “Tiki Night” on the evening of July 27, with three different beers on tap, including a Tiki Weiss, a sour ale brewed with cinnamon, grapefruit, and lime zest.

If you’re not a beer person, Crane will also have a tiki cocktail on tap. Don’t worry: There will be food by Chef Anourom Thompson, who runs Anousone’s Mobile Cuisine, an Asian Fusion food truck, and live music by Eems, the incredible ukuleleist. Get ready for tiny umbrellas. 

Tap Notes

Der Bauer (7.75%) by KC Bier Co. is a German-style version of a farmhouse ale. Dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria, which gives it a citrusy hoppy scent. 

Calibration Brewery has a new cider with coconut and passionfruit called “A Strange Boy.” (5.7%). 

BKS Artisan Ales is tapping Space Nelson (8.2%) on July 27, a double dry-hopped New England Style IPA with Galaxy & Nelson Sauvin hops. 

Delta 88 (6.1%) an American Style IPA is back on tap at Big Rip Brewing Company. 

Friggatriskaidekaphilia (6.3%) is a Norweigan Farmhouse IPA dry-hopped with three different kinds of hops and brewed with Kveik yeast by Crane Brewing Company.
