There are two things you can do on Saturday to celebrate Triangle Brewing Company’s release of canned beers: throw one back and throw one at the band. For their Can Release Party, which will start at 6:30 p.m. behind the brewery (918 Pearl Street, Durham, www.trianglebrewery.com, 919-683-2337), the folks at Triangle will sell their White Ale and Belgian Golden Ale for $3 a can and $4 a pint. In addition, with their loading dock as a stage, they’ll host Pipe, a band known for its can-throwing crowds. With this in mind, co-owner and brewer Rick Tufts says he “couldn’t think of a better band to headline” the event. The Beast, The Wigg Report, and Jason Kutchma from Red Collar will also take to the dock and perform.
Bring your own chair to the free show, as well as cash for drinks and food. Durham’s Only Burger will park behind the lot to sell burgers alongside Tommy Stann, who will serve barbecue. Stann plans to open a barbecue restaurant in Hillsborough at the first of the year.
If you can’t make the release party, there’s ample opportunity to find the cans. The White Ale and Belgian Golden Ale are already for sale in stores in Durham and Orange counties. Triangle plans to expand its offerings into Wake County early next year.
