Unhappy with the canned choices Creature Comforts regularly presents? Well, boo on you. You should be more grateful. But the local brewery wants to make you happy, so it’s throwing a party all over Normaltown tomorrow (Thursday, June 16) to celebrate its release of Automatic, a seasonal pale ale that’s a bit hoppier than its usual offerings.
The can has a label designed by painter Michelle Fontaine, inspired by vintage cars. The party starts at 6 p.m. at J’s Bottle Shop, where the cans will be on sale in six-packs. Then, from 7–9 p.m., Automatic Pizza and Normal Bar are serving pizza inspired by and to be paired with the beer, and Fontaine will sign postcards with her design. Proceeds to go to the brewery’s Get Comfortable charitable initiative.
Finally, cross Prince at 9 p.m., where Hi-Lo will do a special burger until 11 p.m., and a dance party fills up The Old Pal from 11 p.m.–1 a.m.
