After temporarily closing their doors to the great lament of SoCal craft brew fans, Blue Palms Brewhouse has re-opened and is throwing a craft beer fete to celebrate. The party starts on Sunday, April 1 at 12 PM – admission is $40 for a ten-taster wristband, and a limited amount of complimentary snacks (full food menu available for purchase). The first 100 wristbands purchased will receive early admission at 11:30 AM, which may come in handy for a certain “Young” IPA due to make an appearance on the taplist.
