Beer & Yoga - Tuesday Evenings


Beer & Yoga - why not combine two great things?

Join us every Tuesday evening from 6-6:45pm in our outdoor beer garden. 
Classes are rain or shine- they will be moved indoors if the weather does not cooperate. 

$8 cash only.

Hosted by Ashley-Brooke McGinty.

Classes will ignite the light from deep within you by vibrantly complimenting you in each and every moment. Through guided pranayama(breath control), meditation and Asana(postures) you will use self exploration and action to set clear intentions on and off the mat. Ashley-Brooke uses a balanced combination of sustained poses with attention to alignment and therapeutic principles to help support beginners learn the basics while more experienced students take postures to a deeper level.

Stick around after for a beer or snack!

Bangerz Only!

It’s a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real! On the first Monday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most rare, special, or just downright delicious beers we can find. We like to call them Bangerz! Every Banger will be tapped at open, but when it’s gone it’s gone. We will have no regrets. Will you?


This month’s Banger is:


New Holland Brewing Co.  {Holland, MI}

Dragons Milk Reserve: Cherry & Chocolate

Bourbon BA American Imperial Stout – 11.3% ABV


For most breweries, a bourbon barrel stout clocking in at 11 percent ABV is a limited release. New Holland Brewing works hard to make Dragon’s Milk available year round. The Reserve series is a chance for brewers and consumers alike to see the favorite beer in a new light.
