Pint & Paint Night - Holiday Growler

Snowman Growler.jpg

Grist Iron is partnering up with Wine & Design Ithaca for another Pint & Paint Night!

A growler and enamel paints will be provided for this event. You can decide which holiday theme to paint and the instructor will guide you along the way. 

Bonus: if you take your growler home and bake it in the oven (further instructions provided at the class) the paint will seal and you can bring your growler back to fill with beer again and again! 

These would make great holiday gifts or just keep it for yourself - we won't judge.

Have zero artistic ability? Come anyway and just blame it on the beer ;) Even better...first pint is on us!

$40 per person - all participants need to pre-register here: bit.ly/WD113017
