Paella & Beer - January 27PaellaDeliciosa

There's a lot going on at Old Ox Brewery on the LoCo Ale Trail this weekend. First, they are releasing a great new beer called Hoppier Place Galaxy. This double IPA has been uniquely brewed to coax out aroma without imparting bitterness--then dry hopped extravagantly for an over-the-top hop experience. Old Ox is also hosting PaellaDeliciosa serving delicious paella made with either shrimp or sausage and chicken. Don't forget about the live music too. Obviously, we will see you there.
