What's Up This Week

On Wednesday, September 27, the Alehouse is hosting an open mic night. Come and perform if you want! Come and listen to new artists. Or, stay home and watch another re-run of Gilligan's Island and get depressed about your hopeless life while other people grab your share of the fun.

It's officially fall but the Alehouse has proclaimed summer is still in effect. So come and sit on our patio at no charge and suck on a Smeet Frog session IPA, the featured beer of the week, for only $3. That's THREE bucks. And three is getting DAMN close to free.

It's no surprise and you probably don't need us to tell you this but October is coming. That means Halloween and pumkins. And that, in turn, means special pumkin spice ale that we'll be pushing on you for the Halloween holidays. If that doesn't float your boat, well, at least there's no Roller Derby scheduled this week.

Oh, oh, wait, one more exciting tid bit of news that we hope doesn't cause you too many sleepless nights... you can buy any one of the mugs you see here for only 5 bucks.


Alehouse's Famous Dead Person Quote

As the need arises, and mostly to fill in some of the white space on our website's home page, we insert a gratuitous quotation by a dead poet, writer or comedian. Sometimes they are good enough to write down and magnet to your refrigerator. This time it's comedian George Carlin:

"The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done."
