BEFORE YOU SLIP INTO THE NIGHT
… you’ll want something to drink.
We are pleased to announce our first ever Phish festival cocktail program. The Genius Bar will feature a handful of inventive drinks using the best locally-sourced supplies and crafted by a crack team of NYC professionals down for the cause. Cocktails include Satan on the Beach, Coconuts & Chloroform, Mule Duel, and The Red, Red Worm, just for starters. Come by before the show, between sets or stop by for a nightcap – the Genius Bar will be open until 1AM each night.
Years of marketing research and focus groups have revealed that Phish fans, given a choice of a wide variety of beverage options, often choose a fermented concoction made from cereal grains. Were excited to be bringing a few of the best Vermont breweries to Magnaball as well as the return of a few friends from further afield.
Located in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, Hill Farmstead Brewery will be on hand and will have their Citra Pale Ale and Mary, a German-style Pilz.Lawson’s Finest Liquids will be joining us form Warren, Vermont and will have two brews on top, the Sip of Sunshine IPA and Super Session #2 ale. Brooklyn’s Sixpoint Brewery will be featuring the Bengali IPA and you can also find their Crisp Pilz lager as well. Of note is the return of Sierra Nevada‘s FOAM, a special pilsner brewed specially for Phish. True fact: After Festival 8, FOAM went on to win the Gold Medal at the 2010 World Beer Championship as the world’s best Pilsner. It sold out in a hurry at its debut. They’ll also have their classic Pale Ale and Hop Hunter on hand.
