Labor Day Weekend Brewery Info
Holy crap, it's Labor Day weekend already! That means it's football season (we hope!), baseball playoffs (once again, we hope) and that cool fall air is not far away. I'm putting this out on Thursday just in case anyone is looking to get a jump start on their long holiday weekend.
Friday night we are kicking off the test run neighborhood garage crawl in Headwaters. We have almost 30 houses participating in a fun socially distant activity that will support our local breweries. I'm really looking forward to the feedback we get on the event after it's over. I hope this is a concept we can help promote in other Drinking Springs communities to help give our local breweries some much needed support during the ever changing pandemic business landscape. Stay tuned for follow up info/photos from the event.
Also- it's Labor Day so I'm going to put out a 25% discount on all online store purchases. This code is only for people reading this update, so take a look at all the great DSTX items we have and show your support in the community for the group. Discount code is LABOR25
