The Little Theatre’s 90th Anniversary: A Commemorative Beer

Thursday, October 17 • The Little Theatre Cafe

We teamed up with our friends at The Little Theatre to brew a beer in honor of their 90th anniversary. We had so much fun coming up with a story and beer style that was just right for this momentous event.

The name comes from the theatre’s given nickname during a time of silent films. It’s flavor? Inspired by a popular snack at the theatre, Nanaimo bars, with flavors of chocolate, almond, and coconut. Nanaimo bars are locally made at Julep Bake Shop.
