MA GIRLS’ PINT OUT @ STODDARD’S FINE FOOD AND ALE
The Bay State branch of Girls into Grolsch, Angels of Ale, Ladies of Lager is celebrating two years tonight at Stoddard’s and, as is their style, will be pulling out all the
stops hops. Local drafts--like Notch Brewing’s Polotmavy, High & Mighty’s Pas de Dieux, and Pretty Things’s Jack D’Or--will be representing, as will tallboys of ‘Gansett Cream Ale and bottles Bantam Cider‘s Wunderkind. For the hopheads there’s also a ‘lil old beer on draft: Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA, a mega-hopped IPA that comes in between 15-20 percent ABV.
MA GPO has been supporting local breweries, educating beer enthusiasts, and simply, making beer events hella fun since they entered the scene two years ago, so it’s only right we give them the same treatment for their birthday. Boys are allowed too, so no excuses.
