Firkin Friday at 400 Rabbits

Friday night means it’s firkin time! We’re tapping a special dry-hopped firkin of our classic Full Moon Rye IPA at 400 Rabbits right off of the Alamo Drafthouse. By itself, Full Moon is a beautiful beer with great citrus flavor, but after putting it in a firkin and adding extra hops, you’ll swear your drinking fresh squeezed citrus juice! Your first pint will be served in a Real Ale glass that you can keep, and our rep Holly will be passing out other cool merch like hats, shirts, bottle openers and more.

You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline — it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
