It’s snowing like an angry beast out there. Trivia canceled. We’re closed. Be safe.
Come celebrate with Emily Boster tonight as she works her last shift at MCB! We first saw something special in her when she won our contest to hunt down and get their picture taken with that guy from the Breakfast Club during the 2013 film festival. Since then she's been a great friend and asset to the brewery. We're sad to see her go but we're thankful for all she has done over the years.
Tonight! Izabel Crane! We're 100% certain this will be a great show. That is if you like super-talented original musicians. You should definitely come.
They were featured on IPR just last night from the Des Moines Social Club. Amazing!
More info: Drawing on influences as vast as the Paris jazz of Django Reinhardt, and the vocal styles of Billy Holiday, to the traditional Americana music of the Ozarks that they call home, Izabel Crane has created a style of their own dubbed “Ozark Jazz.” The ensemble plays with a “beauty and darkness that melodically winds itself around your eardrums and sensually sways you into submission”(feedbands). With two albums under their belt, they will release their third album in the winter of 2017.
We were invited to do a tap takeover at the Des Moines Social Club during the Towncrier and Halfloves show this Saturday night. So we'll be loading up some kegs and heading down for some fun. If you are in Des Moines or feel like heading down and would like some free tickets let us know. We have a few to raffle. You might remember Towncrier as the band that headlined our festival in 2016.
