On Sunday, August 12 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., we will be hosting Piggly Wiggly for Bomber Bash, a very special event to introduce the people of Birmingham to the new beers in 22oz and 750ml bottles that are soon to be legal in the great state of Alabama.
Thanks to the diligent efforts of the members of Free the Hops during this year’s legislative session, the beer culture of Alabama will see another victory come to fruition on August 1 when large format bottles (22 oz. bombers and 750ml bottles) become a legal reality. This is a huge win because the amount of beer options on store shelves and beer bar bottle lists is about to grow exponentially. Seriously . . . this is going to be big.
To get you acquainted with the overwhelming amount of beers from all over the country and world that will soon be flooding the state, Piggly Wiggly has organized this Bomber Bash tasting. This event will provide you the chance to sample a spread of new offerings from all of our great, local distributors in the atmosphere of a private tasting. Not only will you be able to pick your next favorite beer, but the distributors on hand will be able to discuss with you all of the new additions to their portfolios and also give you a better idea of what to expect in the near future. It will be a wealth of knowledge that you get to enjoy over beers with like minded craft beer lovers.
During the tasting, we will be offering the following limited menu to satisfy any snack cravings that may arise:
- Wings $6
- Hummus $7
- Pork Wings, two for $7
- Fried Green Tomatoes $7
- Fudge Farm Brat $8
- Veggie Brat $8
Tickets for this event are $18 each and all proceeds from ticket sales go to benefit Free the Hops in their future endeavors of beer liberation in Alabama. You can purchase tickets here at the pub or at the Piggly Wiggly in Homewood. Tickets are incredibly limited, so make sure you stop by one of these locations soon to ensure you can be a part of this amazing event. **Since we are typically closed on Sundays, only ticket holders for this event will be admitted into the pub on August 12.**
This is a really wonderful gesture by Piggly Wiggly to help raise funds for Free the Hops, and we could not be more honored to act as the venue for this great event. Make sure to grab your tickets because we cannot wait to see you on the 12th when we try to wrap our minds around all of this beery awesomeness!
