This Saturday, Slack Tide Brewing Company is releasing a new beer for the Holidays as part of their Winter Bazaar featuring 17 vendors on-site at their property on Route 9 in Dennis Township.  Starting at 12 pm on Saturday, December 2nd, you can do your Christmas shopping with local vendors while sipping beer and supporting local Cape May County Businesses.  Also, Santa Claus will be on-site from 3 pm to 5 pm and the day's festivities culminate with a Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at 5 pm.  Only after dusk can everyone truly enjoy the lights and decorations on full display.

The Holiday Beer debuting for the Christmas season is called Headshake, a Milkshake IPA layered with cherry and chocolate flavors. This unique brew made with lactose offers IPA Fans a desert-style beer and those who are casual craft beer drinkers something fun to drink instead of the usual beers they consume. Also for the Christmas and Holiday season, you should check out the return of Dry Dock. This White Stout brewed by Slack Tide features flavors of coffee and caramel blended into another desert-style beer that is a great craft beer for the Winter Weather season.
