Beer has a bad reputation. Night after tasteless night of soused revelry, the drink has become nothing more than a fun vice we traded in for better glassware and unstained rugs. Tonight connoisseurs strike an ideal balance between artisanal ales, music, and lively exchange in Drinking/Songs: A Night of Beer & the Music That Goes with It. Taste the latest craft selections from Dogfish Head Brewery, while hooch historians discuss the rich, longstanding relationship between drinking and song. Members of the men’s a cappella group The Fill A Steins perform libation-themed songs from around the world, including those penned by local composers. Special glass mementos and light complimentary snacks are provided. In this swilling world of corporate beer-sponsored hootenannies, Drinking/Songs pours out an intimate, refined, and thoroughly grown-up must-sip. — By Jessica Hilo
