Lovecraft, and all kind of good scary stuff just in time for the spookiest month of the year! Original paintings on canvas will be available for your viewing pleasure and purchase, as well as Ben’s super psychedelic digitally designed prints he creates online to showcase a private world of color and wonder captured in an entirely different medium. 

These original pieces full of brilliant color and chilling, iconic vibrancy will be hanging at our pub from 11am to 12am every day during the show. Individual pieces are always available for sale by cash or check.

October 4th

  • Boulevard Brewing Pint Night

On a vacation in Europe one year, John McDonald was thirsty. He visited a bar specializing in Belgian beers and tried one, and then another, and then another… he was hooked and spellbound by the variety, aromas, and flavors. Returning to America to pursue his dream to become a master carpenter, he couldn’t forget the delicious beers he had tried, but he couldn’t find anything similar anywhere. A new life dream began to rise in his heart, and after lots of hard work and pitches to investors, Boulevard Brewing was born. “I want to do something different,” he said. I want to make big beers, a variety of beers, beers with color and flavor and aroma and body, beers for real beer lovers.” Come taste the beers that changed John’s life forever, and became his very life as a passionate home-brewer with exquisite, discerning preferences.
