Krampusnacht at Backlash Beer
December 7, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The holidays are upon us and as you know there is a jolly fat man who is making a list and checking it twice. We all know that the good kids get presents, but let’s be honest how many of us were less than good but got presents anyway? Yeah, that’s what Backlash Beer thought.
They’ve decided to celebrate all of the kids, both good and bad, with their first annual Krampusnacht toy drive, because every kid deserves a gift during the holidays.
Those who bring a toy to donate to kids in need will be given the first tastes of our super limited Krampusbier and be given the chance to win some sweet prizes.
Those who don’t will be shamed, but still given beer.
The amazing folks from Brato will be doing a pop up from 3pm to 9pm.
Ugly Sweater Competition? Yeah that’s happening. Show up with an ugly sweater and they will enter you into the contest.
For those who aren’t familiar: Krampus is a figure that is largely assumed to be adapted from nordic pagan mythology to be a counterpart to/partner with St. Nicholas (who is also believed to be adapted from nordic traditions). Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick rewards the children with gifts and sweets for their good behavior during the year; whereas Krampus punishes bad children with by hitting them with sticks or abducting them in the wicker basket he is often depicted to wear. Basically it was a way of threatening your children into good behavior. These days its really just a reason to dress up like a demon, drink a bit(or a lot) and chase each-other around with sticks.
For those of you who don’t like walls of text:
-Basically this is a Christmas Demon party mixed with toy drive.
-Bring a toy and you get to drink our special Krampusbier and get entered to win fun prizes.
-Don’t bring a toy and get shamed.
-Ugly sweater contest.
-Delicious food provided by Brato.
