January 2022 Meeting: Beer and Ice Cream

The General's Crossing Brewhouse

When winter comes, RIFT embraces the season. It might seem a little too cold outside for ice cream. However, winter is also a time to enjoy roasty, chocolaty, and high gravity beers. Join RIFT for a brew and ice cream night. The idea is to pair a brew with a frozen treat. Bring a tasty home brew or commercial beer and a some ice cream, sorbet, or whatever you like. If you're not into the pairing, it's "cool." Just bring a home brew or commerical brew to share, and bring yourself! Bring some snacks to nosh if you're so inclined.

This is an indoor event. RIFT recommends following public health guidelines when gathering in public places.
