Movies, Beer and Moules et Frites At City Tap House

citytaphouse

A rooftop deck is a terrible thing to waste, and City Tap House has no intention of letting theirs sit idle. All summer, they’ve got events, parties and specials scheduled, and every single one of them involves drinking from the 60-tap beer program run by Andy Farrell.

So now that the long days and warm nights are officially here, what’s on the schedule?

Movie Nights:

On a bunch of Thursday nights throughout the summer, City Tap House will be showing outdoor movies, sponsored by a rotating list of breweries. There’ll be popcorn and snacks available (for purchase, of course), but the movies themselves are free. Here’s the list:

The Goonies with Allagash on June 27;  Independence Day with Yards on July 4 (a perfect way to celebrate, natch);  Field of Dreams with Brooklyn on July 11;  The Sandlot with Ommegang on July 18;  National Lampoon’s Vacation (a movie that improves with every repeat watching and in direct correlation to how many beers you have in you) with Sierra Nevada on July 25;  Jaws with Narragansett on August 1;  Dirty Dancing with Ommegang (again) on August 8;  Beeradelphia with Victory on August 15;  Point Break with Lagunitas on August 22;  What About Bob (“I’m sailing!”) with Dogfish Head on August 29;  and Stand By Me with Ommegang (third time’s a charm) on September 5.

Sunday Brunch Party:

It’s on Sunday, June 30. There’ll be DJ’s and beer-mosas, beer specials and a brunch menu served until 3pm.

Moules et Frites:

Every Sunday, the kitchen will be slinging mussels for cheap, paired with a rotating list of craft beers. $15 gets you a beer, frites and a bowl of PEI mussels in one of three variations: Abigail, with roasted garlic butter, leeks and Belgian ale broth; Elise, with plum tomato, garlic, olive oil and basil chiffonade; or Pancho, with spicy chorizo, poblano peppers, tomato, garlic and fresh thyme.
