Tix on sale at www.thesecretgrouphtx.com

Every month, we bring you a hilarious comedy show sponsored by a new featured brewery! This month's featured brewery is Lone Pint Brewery and we're so excited to have them!

$12 buys you two pints and a souvenir branded pint glass.

This show sells out fast so grab your tickets now! Come laugh! Come drink! 

Hosted by Stephen Brandau.

Lone Pint Brewery:
The Lone Pint Brewery is a grassroots insurrection with the true beer lover in mind. We are dedicated to creating distinctive local Texas ales that are tasty, hoppy, and quaffable. We use raw whole cone hops for bittering, flavoring, aroma, and dry hopping in our brews. However, an equally important ingredient is the renewable energy that powers our Brewery. The spent grain is fed to a local dairy farmer's cows and the spent hops live on in our beer.
Craft brewing is an American institution. Our brewhouse and tanks are from Nevada, our boiler from Pennsylvania, our kegging machine from California, our chiller from Oregon, our bottling machine from Washington, and our mill from Canada (close enough, eh!). Point being, we kept the love at home, doing our part to insure that craft brewing will always remain an American institution.
Support your local Brewery!
