brewhouse) is the pale ale of lagers. Made primarily with German
Pilsner malt (plus a thouch of Carafoam and Caramalt) this Pils is a
clear golden color. Four additions of Saaz hops from the Czech Republic
lend a spicy-floral hop component which plays nicely with the grainy
malt character to create a clean, crisp beer of exceptional

| Comedy Night
January 10th Showtime 8 p.m.
month we welcome Comedy Hypnotist Rusty Z. After a successful 14 year
career as a stand-up comedian (appearing on such television shows as
A&E's Evening at the Improv and The Dennis Miller Show, James R.
Zingleman decided to switch gears (and persona) and do a stage hypnosis
act. He studied both stage hypnosis and hypnotherapy with some of the
best instructors in the field. James is a certified member of the
National Guild of Hypnotists. Under the alias Rusty Z, James has been
putting volunteers to sleep and bringing out their hidden talents on
stages across the United States. Rusty Z's mastery of rapid hypnotic
inductions and his comedic background, not to mention his groovy-
hipster stage persona, make his hypnosis parties a cut above the usual
stage hypnosis show. Rusty Z's Hilarious Hypnotic Happenings are always
in good taste and nobody is embarrassed, except maybe the skeptics who
didn't believe in hypnotism before the show started!
Tickets on sale now $10- includes a wine, well or draft beer.
| Shulbok Anyone?
what is Shulbok? We think it’s just a game- based on the traditional
Dutch shuffleboard game called “Sjoelbak”. It was popular in the
Netherlands for several hundred years, and still is, with a rich
heritage through time in places like Belgium, Germany, and of course
England (the birthplace of shuffleboard).
