Whether you're feeling wild or just feeling like a wild ale, 16 Tons' Wild Ale Fest and fourth anniversary Saturday, May 3, is the place to be. It's cash-only at the event, so don't forget to swing by the ATM. More from the press release:
Each year we have teamed up with a brewery to brew a special anniversary beer as part of our "Phantom Limb Series" that pays homage to a famous author who lost an arm or leg as a result of their adventures. This year we are very excited to work with Breakside Brewery to create “A Saison in Hell," a Wallonian-Style Wild Rye Saison that pays homage to Arthur Rimbaud, who is from the Ardennes Region where this working class beer originated.

Noir, Upright El Coloquio Cervantes, The Commons Fishing with Hallet, Block 15 Wild Chardonnay Ale, Block 15 Kriek, Crux Better off Red, Logsdon / Solera Half Naakte Paasvankantie, BFM Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien, Double Mountain Devils Kriek, Deschutes Green Monster, and Russian River Consecration.
