Marz Community Brewing

Get ready! Marz Community Brewing will be the first guest at the Beer and Big Shoulders' Monthly Beer Social.

I'm excited to start this project, but especially so because of the inaugural guests. Marz Community Brewing, founded by Ed Marszewski, has been nothing but impressive since they first came live at the end of 2014. The beer became a fast favorite of the staff and customers at the Hopleaf based on how quickly we run through it.

This event is a great opportunity to come taste four Marz beers, eat some snacks, and get to know Ed and the brewers behind the beers. This is happening on Tuesday evening, May 12 at 7:30 in the upstairs bar of the Hopleaf. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets.
