2017 Bock Fest @ Liar's Bench Beer Co
Mar 4 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Winter is a time for dark, full-bodied and warming beer. Some prefer to drink those beers snuggled up around a crackling fire while wearing flannel footed-pajamas. Not us. We like to drink those beers as though they were summer light lagers while we stand outside in the frozen air trying to absorb as much Vitamin D through the space between the top of our scarves and bottom of our beanies as possible.

If you are like us, BOCKFEST is for you.

This March, we will be helping to close out Portsmouth Beer Week with an outdoor bock drinking extravaganza. Join us in raising our steins to the goat!
