Need help with beer recommendations?

Check out our GM’s Flight at the Museum recommendations!

  • Start with a Cowboy’s Last Ride, this is a Belgian Blonde by Alpha Brewing Company
  • Squeeze Box Lemon Wheat by Heavy Riff Brewing Company. This is a light, yet slightly tart brew. It is a prep for the IPA’s to come.
  • Charlatan is by a Chicago brewing company called Maplewood Brewing Company.
  • Migration Patterns is an American IPA that is easy to drink. It is a microbrew by Crane Brewing Company
  • Final set of this flight is by Narrow Gauge. Bird Law is a Hazy session IPA that is absolutely delicious, and without the ABV of some more hoppy counterparts.
