Durham Youth Baseball is having a Community Pint Night on Friday, April 5th from 5:30 to 9:30pm in Freeport! They‘ll be raffling off a corn hole board and bags (to be drawn on the day of the actual Corn Hole Tournament), and other items to be drawn that night. DYB will also be registering people for the June 1st Corn Hole Tournament they’re having at Gritty’s in Freeport too. Of course, we’re contributing 50¢ from every pint we sell during the CPN. DYB is currently in the process of planning and developing a baseball field complex on Swamp Road in Durham. All fundraising efforts this season will be in support of this project.

Where’s there “Fire,” – there’s a smoked style lager on tap. Our “Fire” lager features a touch of smoke from Beech Wood smoked malts along with Vienna and Munich malts. It’s brewed with Saaz hops and is purposely hazy, which gives this brew a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. It’s a malty-sweet and approachable lager that is also crisp and drinkable. About 5.5% ABV. On tap at all the pubs while it lasts!
There is nothing better than a beer and sunshine. The decks and patio and all Gritty’s Brew Pubs will start to open this month, weather permitting. Look for the sunshine, warm temps to hit the decks or patio!
