Spend a fun evening on Tuesday, September 11, catching up with STC members, colleagues and fresh faces at Roc Brewing Company where they will be providing a flight (samples) of their fine blends, a tour of the brewery with a presentation on the brewing process, and a token for one full-sized gourmet beer. A deli tray of sandwich fixin’s with chips and salad is included in the price.
