Anyone feeling the munchies are encouraged to visit the back room at Pint Sized where Berben and Wolff’s will be dissecting vegan alien bodies and serving them to the curious.

Equilibrium Can Release & Tap Takeover (Toga Beer Week!)

We are extremely excited to announce a special Saratoga Beer Week Equilibrium Brewery Can Release on Friday, February 22nd at 5 PM. This will be the highlight event of our beer week as we release a pallet of multiple can skus. In addition to the can release we will also be pouring multiple lines from our taps!

Snag some cans for trades, bottle shares, and most importantly... FOR YOURSELF!

Can and Draft List TBA

If you are seeking out specific product we highly recommend showing up 30 minutes to an hour before hand based off of how our previous can releases went in Saratoga. There will be some significant changes to our process to speed things up and make this the best release yet:

- Once we hit capacity folks hanging out inside will get first crack at what they want. Show up early, stay warm in our cozy bar, sip on some juicy EQ draft, and and get what you want!
- We will have a separate register from our bar register set up inside exclusively for can release purchases.
- If you want to speed things up even more we will have a cash only express line set up outside that will be live right at 5 PM. Just walk up ready with the exact amount, grab, and go!
- Ticket system to speed up the transaction process and limit communication at the register (the largest chunk of time from past experience)
- We will also list the amount of cases received so that you will have an accurate understanding of your shot at getting any limited items based on how many folks show up.

Stay tuned for updates. We are stoked. Cheers!

** please note that all of this is subject to change **

Cannibal Feast - A Vegan Human Experience with Berben & Wolff's

Cannibal Feast - A Vegan Human Experience

We are collaborating with Berben and Wolff's Vegan Delicatessen to present a vegan human experience in our back room on Halloween night. The room will be staged and creepily decorated as a monster serves you vegan human inspired items served from a life sized human body. Menu to be announced. Items may include the following: arm, leg, brain, intestine, foot, heart, skin, etc.

Plot Synopsis - The staff a vegan deli have a secret cannibalistic life. They stalk their prey carefully and cart the bodies off to their cohorts at Pint Sized where the meat is butchered, prepared, and preserved. The meat is sliced, skin is fried, brains and innards are pureed into various sauces or used as casings. Nothing goes unused. On Halloween night, for one time only, they will share these culinary masterpieces to the general public at 250 Lark Street. Bone appetite.

Have a beer, pretend to eat a human body, get weird. It'll be like a slasher film meets a dinner party. Drink specials all day long to celebrate this uniquely twisted event.
