This October, in light of Breast Cancer Awareness, support the Rena Rowan Breast Center all while enjoying a really awesome pink-hued beer, Saison de Rose.
Erin Wallace of Barren Hill Tavern and Brewery, Old Eagle’s Tavern, and Devil’s Den, joined up recently with Free Will Brewing Company and female writing professionals Marnie Old, Tara Nurin and Carolyn Smagalski to create a delicious saison that would support breast cancer research. Proceeds from this beer will be donated to the Rena Rowan Breast Center at University of Penn.
Swap your summer pilsners and pale ales for something with a little more tang. Devil’s Den will soon be serving beers that are sour, tart, bitter and sharp. Beginning Saturday, August 16th until Friday, August 22nd, the gastropub will be celebrating their 5th Annual Sourfest. For seven days one draft tower will be completely devoted to sour beers. That’s a total of 8 lines and plenty of sours to try throughout the week.
In keeping with the celebration, Tuesday August 19th, Don Russell, better known as Joe Sixpack, will be hosting a sour tasting and brewing class. Devil’s Den will serve as your classroom as you learn the fine techniques behind preparing a pucker worthy brew. All students will also enjoy appetizers and a tasting of six different sour beers such as Free Will Peach Lambic, Bruery Oude Tart, Barren Hill Berliner Weisse, Bom Wild & Funky #1, Allagash Confluence and Tilquin Gueze. The class is $35 per person and tickets can be purchased at the bar or online.

Yes, today really is National Session Beer Day (it’s also just plain ol’ National Beer Day), and you should really get out there to celebrate.
In order to facilitate said celebrations, three bars in town are offering $1 off all session beers (meaning any beer with less than 4.5% ABV). Head out tonight to drink at Devil’s Den, Barren Hill Tavern or the Old Eagle Tavern and you’ll get a buck off a bunch of different Barren Hill session beers that they’re putting on tap (Drunk Monk, Bitter Chef, Berliner and more).
