March is here. That’s a big deal to college basketball fans. Not that I’m a big college hoops fan, but you’d have to be in a coma to now know what March Madness is. Traditionally, however, March doesn’t mean much of anything special to craft beer drinkers.
Machine House Brewery wants to change that and give craft beer drinkers a different reason to be excited for March. Back again this year is their annual March Mildness event, taking place at a number of craft beer locations around the Sound. Drink up plenty of Machine House’s Dark Mild and win prizes.
Here is the full press release from Machine House Brewery:
Come celebrate March and Machine House Brewery with our famous Dark Mild at our 3rd Annual March Mildness Event! Every March we take the time to appreciate one of our most beloved and popular beers by drinking it all month long. This year we will be doing things a little different to expand different venues and celebrate everything Dark Mild! With 12 locations across the Puget Sound area there is no excuse to not get in all the fun! We well be finishing things off with a WILD MILD party at the end of the month just in case you want some more. Should be a mildly good time…
