A beer fest in the middle of the week? And it’s at a casino. Sounds like a winning combination and a great way to break up the work week. Hollywood Casino in Grantville hosts the Spring Craft Beer Festival tonight in its Skybox Sports Bar. Not everyone that walks into a casino can come out a winner (unless they can count cards like those guys from that movie 21, but didn’t they get beat up or arrested or something at the end?), but there is one way to guarantee coming out on top: craft beer.
The featured breweries are Terrapin Brewing, Oskar Blues Brewery, DuClaw Brewing, Brewery at Hershey, Pizza Boy Brewing Co. and Snitz Creek Brewery. Each brewery serves two or three of their beers paired with chef-inspired small plates ranging from a curried chicken bahn mi with carrot slaw to a coffee stout braised beef slider.
If you’re hitting the casino after sampling all these excellent craft beers, I’ve had a lot of luck betting black and the number 33 at the roulette table. Just sayin’. The Spring Craft Beer Festival runs from 6:30-9 p.m. and tickets are $29 per person plus tax and gratuity. Call 469-3060 for more information.
