Strangeways Brewing Tap Takeover at Adroit Theory on 10/10/15


Posted by Mark Osborne on Saturday, September 19, 2015

Join the Adroit Theory Crew as we welcome Strangeways Brewing from Richmond, Virginia into our Tasting Room. They are bringing 25 of their rarest brews; many that have not left the Richmond area. Oh, and don't be surprised if they bring 35 of their own beers!

We will be pouring 40 of our own brews including a CASK of Triptych Saison and three variants of B/A/Y/S - Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout made just for the event. We will also be serving all of our bottled beers that are no longer available on draft. That is over 60+ RARE BEERS in one location! Note, we will be pouring ALL beers at one time, not staging beers to tap as others kick!

This IS a ticketed event, and strictly limited to 500 attendees. Purchase your tickets today! Tickets are available at:

With a style as unique as those of the breweries represented at this tap takeover event, music producer and DJ Chris Price (@cpricemusic) will be joining forces with us from 2-6pm to offer up an eclectic mix of underground disco, alternative synth-pop, and other weird stuff (no top 40!) for your drinking pleasure.
