They’ll be pouring up the first release of the IPA along with all the other Valdez Brewing flavors. A great time to check out local deals, giveaways, all of the entries for the design contest and to see whose design won. During the event, Black Ops Valdez will also be taking matching donations for their long time master chef and great friend Bridget Huddy who was recently diagnosed with stage three brain cancer. All money donated will be going to help Bridget and her family during her treatment and recovery.
