Manuel's Turns 53!

Years ago, on August 6th, 1956, a man called Manuel Maloof opened a tavern in town that would become host to hundreds (maybe even thousands) of good times and many a brilliant mind throughout the years.

Now, Manuel's Tavern is popping open a cold one to celebrate its 53rd birthday on August 6th. Head over to the tavern that day around 6 pm to toast to the Tavern's success with a glass of beer from the cask of Terrapin Rye Pale Ale with whiskey and dark oak brewed especially for the occasion.

If you can't make it on the 6th you'll have to miss out on the one-night-only beer offering, but you can still take part in the festivities by taking advantage of drink and food specials that will be running all weekend.
