Nota Bene - From President Kenny Sandstrom of Gallery Cabaret

The Gallery Cabaret has been honored by the Miller-Coors brewing company to be one the select few bars in the nation to be able to serve their newest old product, Batch 19. The recipe for Batch 19 was discovered in the basement of the Coors brewery and dates back to before prohibition. Reproducing this fine, flavorful brew has been nearly five years in the making. Using hops and craftsmanship rarely seen in today's market, the result is a robustly flavored, drinkable lager packing 5.5 percent alcohol content. Beginning today, May 4th, 2010, Batch 19 will be available on tap at The Gallery Cabaret for your drinking pleasure! Stop by and grab a pint or two.
