Green Flash Brewing Company will have a tasting at the Wooden Nickel on Monday, August 11. The event starts at 5 p.m. and will have a representative from the company there to answer any questions.

The San Diego-based microbrewery was founded in 2002 by Mike and Lisa Hinkley. The brewery can be found throughout the West Coast, but have started to make more nationwide appearances, including Chicago and Cooperstown, New York. Currently, two Green Flash beers are available in bottles at the Wooden Nickel, but can be found in stores like White’s and the Marquette Food Co-op. A full listing can be found here.

As the area’s own microbrewery scene grows, Marquette is looking more and more attractive to the national microbreweries. Boston Brewing Company had some major events with their tap takeovers and the Downtown Spring Open. Both companies are locally distributed by Bayside Beverages.

For more information, check out the event’s Facebook page here.
