Join us during Victorian Stroll for our annual reading of "A Visit from St. Nicholas" by legendary Troy storyteller J'Keith Slupski. This year, J'Keith reads beat poet style (audience snapping encouraged) and is accompanied by East Bound Jesus Bassist and Brown's Brewer, Dave (Dudley Do) Wright. As is tradition, the festive reading is immediately followed by a toast of this season's release of Dunder & Blixem Holiday Spiced Strong Ale. Free to the public and going down on the Taproom Stage.
