Invite a friend and join us as we gather to wrestle, inquire, and discuss topics about our faith while enjoying craft beer brewed by Highrock's rock-star homebrewer Pete Harkins!
We will gather at the one and only House of Seven Gables in Salem to hear a short talk from a speaker and engage in discussion about that topic with one another.
A cost of $10 will get you a beer and some homemade snacks prepared by the StoutFaith team. Expect to make new friends, drink delicious beer, and engage in plenty of discussion! In addition to beer, we will also have wine and non-alcoholic beverages if that is important for you.
