Lager Ba'Omer 5779

Thursday, May 23, 2019 18 Iyyar 5779

7:00 PM - 11:30 PM

Beer festival + Lag Ba'Omer = Lager Ba'Omer, now in our 6th year, is a Sixth Street Synagogue tradition and a great time for all craft beer enthusiasts and students of Beer Yochai.

Cost of Admission: One six pack (or growler) of craft or premium import beer gets you a small tasting glass and unlimited pours (while supplies last). Just don't bring any bad beer. We're sort of serious. Do not bring anything on the official prohibited beers list. Also, keep it kosh. Nothing too complicated. If you have any questions, contact rabbi@sixthstreetsynagogue.org

Your beers will be judged by our Tribeernal. The best beer from each category will be selected. If you brought it, then you will receive a prize and the respect of your shul.
