Pig & Duke

Pig & Duke’s Seasons Eatings & Christmas Beer

Pig & Duke’s Seasons Eatings & Christmas Beer is a holiday celebration that will include food provided by both Pig & Duke chefs Evan & Dan. And it wouldn’t be a party without some beer; so the guys over at Tool Shed Brewing Company are bring along three casks to help out. The casks will be S’Mores Red Rage, Cranberry People Skills and their brand new Stout with Root Beer Spices. The food and casks are included in your $20 ticket. Once the casks are kicked there will be two kegs of Tool Shed on for $4 a pint!
