Three Parties, Great Eats, Anniversary Collaboration Beer Release, Giveaways and More

Festivities Kick Off on Monday, January 30, 2023

Good things come in threes so Ed and Kristen “Red” Sumpter, founders of Red’s Beer Garden, are celebrating the third anniversary of their local haunt with three beer-infused birthday parties and the release of a special anniversary collaboration beer with Elsewhere Brewing.

On Monday, January 30th, the festivities will kick off with an all-you-can-eat Three-Year Anniversary Dinner featuring a “mini snack attack” menu. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., party goers can dig into a miniaturized assortment of Red’s favorites including crostinis, pulled pork sliders, smoked lemon pepper wet chicken wings, chicken salad bites, corn puppies, avocado crostinis, mini cupcakes, and pretzel bites with a (wait for it…) beer cheese fountain. Tickets are $55 per person and include a mini snack attack, an anniversary beer glass, and a 23 oz pour of BFFs: Beer Friends Forever, Red’s anniversary collaboration beer with Elsewhere Brewing. Tickets are for ages 21 and up and must be purchased in advance at

Next up is Red’s Three-Year Bottle Share on Friday, February 3rd from 6 to 9 p.m. For $40 per person, beer lovers will be able to sample six to eight rare brews including sour, dark and Belgian offerings handpicked by go-to beer aficionado Kristen “Red” Sumpter. Guests can also talk it up with the experts from Liberator Distributing and get the latest scoop on all things beer in 2023. For the full bottle list and to purchase tickets (ages 21 and up), visit

Finally, revelers of all ages are invited to join the fun at Red’s Three-Year Anniversary Birthday Bash on Saturday, February 4th from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. The free event will takeover their dinning room and expansive, dog-friendly beer garden and marks the official rollout of BFFs: Beer Friends Forever to the public. Available on draft and in cans, the Belgian-style witbier beer is the perfect companion to Red’s expansive hot dog offerings, hearty sandwiches, snacks and sharables. As always, Kristen and Ed will have an impressive local draft list, special bottles and cans, kombuchas, seltzers, wine and more. Each beer purchase comes with a raffle ticket that enters guests to win a variety of prizes, including gift cards, beers, and merchandise. Winners will be announced every hour, on the hour, and must be present to claim their reward.
