Back in January, The Beer Ace – the alternate name for York-based Ace Distributing – announced a new distribution partnership with Petaluma, CA-based Lagunitas Brewing Company covering York, Adams, Franklin and Fulton counties. Tonight, The Beer Ace hosts a string of welcome to the region parties in and around York, starting with a Meet the Brewery Happy Hour at Arooga’s (1211 Haines Rd., York) from 4:30–6:30pm.
The action moves to Central Market York (34 W. Philadelphia St., York) with the Lagunitas Launch Party featuring live music from Mercersburg Americana rockers The Hello Strangers and Philly singer-songwriter and former Toy Soldiers frontman Ron Gallo from 7-10pm. The party features free beer samples – that’s right, FREE BEER – and is free to the first 160 people. Donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Central PA are accepted at the door as well.
Finally, from 10pm-12am, the festivities reconvene at Holy Hound Taproom (57 W. Market St., York) for one last craft beer hurrah.
