It's an unlikely but mouthwatering combination. Shut yo' mouth! We're talkin' 'bout Isaac Hayes and micro- brewed beer. The hopheads over at Boscos Squared just announced the creation of Shaft on Draft, a "soulful and flavorful golden ale Influenced by classic beer recipes from the Stax era," in support of Staxtacular, Soulsville's annual fund-raiser.
We don't know what beer recipes from the 70s called for, but they probably tasted a bit like, um, beer. And that's a good thing. Shaft on Draft will be available through early March.
For ticket and event information about Staxtacular, visit staxtacular.com, or call 261-6385.
