Nuvo & Flat12 Bierwerks Present: Christmas In July!


Saturday, July 23, Santa is making his way to Flat12 for the bi-annual release of Pinko, our Russian Imperial Stout. It's mid-summer, the end of July, and in Flat12 tradition, we put a twist on it - we're releasing 11 specialty and barrel-aged varieties of our epic imperial stout.

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, deck yourself out in your ugliest Christmas sweater and join us for Christmas-time festivities in Santa's Lounge, our 30,000 cubic foot cooler, while sipping on some of our rarest beers. Our friends at Nuvo are setting up a holiday photo booth for pics with Santa to celebrate the tapping of a few of his stashed away Pinko kegs! 

A $15 ticket includes entry to the event, a commemorative glass, three 4oz. ounce pours of our specialty Pinko varieties and barrel aged line-up, and a complimentary half pint of your choice. Attendees will also have first opportunity to buy limited edition Pinko bombers and for the FIRST TIME, 8oz. cans! A limited amount of tickets are on sale online now. The event is expected to sell out, so get them early!
