The Post on superhero energy use

January 24: Ann Telnaes - Trump's ABC — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Ann Telnaes - Trump's ABC — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

In an inspired matching of form to content, Telnaes presents her series of cartoons on Trump in the shape of a children's board book. But this collection of satirical wit is for adults, and Telnaes draws, rhymes, and critiques Trump with all the moral outrage, wit, and intelligence that made her the second woman cartoonist to win a Pulitzer Prize, and the first to win both a Pulitzer and the Ruben Award. Small but powerful, this volume features Telnaes's impeccable ink line, here accompanied with sing-song verses that capture the truth of Trump's behavior, policies, and his divisive effect on the country.


This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

Heroic Aleworks is still in business!

The Superhero-themed brewery got a new lease on life apparently. From their FB page:

Saturday, January 6 marks the anniversary of our first year in business and we're throwing a big ol' party to celebrate it! Because this is such a BIG occasion, we've reached out to some of our closest industry partners to help us celebrate. That means not only will we have a great lineup of Heroic beers available, including a new limited release, but we'll also have guest beers to make it an even merrier occasion.

But wait, there's more... The cat beer bottle release was a huge success, so we're doing another. This time with 22 oz. bombers of The Dark Enemy Russian Imperial Stout. It's the perfect beer to
take home for those dark, chilly winter evenings!

We're also happy to announce that Bacon Weakling food truck will be at the taproom to make sure you eat well during the festivities.

More information on guest breweries and tickets coming soon!
