While the humidity in the city does not allow us to have a picnic outdoors, there’s no stopping us from doing it at Gateway Taproom. Keeping the theme in mind, the taproom is all set to bring the good old childhood days but of course with a dash of alcohol to give out adult minds a little chill. Starting today, the picnic commences for a whole month with cold brews, delish sandwiches, refreshing salad jars and lip smacking cocktails. Let the summer vacations begin!
Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer
Gateway Taproom, along with their array of amazing brews, brings you two special ones this summer – Time Please and Picnic Ale.
