Support men’s health, wear a moustache, win prizes at tap takeover. Get ready to Earn Your Beard at The Bird and The Bread this November. Marshall, Mich.based brewery Dark Horse Brewing Co. - made even more famous by the History Channel’s Dark Horse Nation - will be featured at the Birmingham restaurant for a fundraising event and tap takeover in the main bar Saturday, Nov. 29.
Patrick O’Rorke of Dark Horse Brewing Co. will present the beers he’s bringing along for the occasion. All the while $1 from the sale of any stout sold during the event, and cash raised during a 50/50 raffle will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. It’s all happening in the name of Movember, a movement dedicated to men’s health and wellness.

To further the message of prostate cancer treatment, men’s health and wellness – a highlight of Movember shown through the growth and symbol of moustaches – all who attend on Nov. 29 are encouraged to wear a moustache. Fake Moustaches will be provided. Those interested in competing in categories like: Best Moustache, Worst Moustache and Best Bert Reynolds Moustache can enter to win prizes including a barbershop gift card, Darkhorse Brewing Co. and Bell’s Brewery tee shirts and The Bird and The Bread gift cards.

Dark Horse on Draft:
  • Crooked Tree IPA – heavily dry-hopped India Pale Ale with flavors of pine and citrus.
  • Scotty Karate Scotch Ale – Named after a local punk musician, this full-bodied Scotch ale boasts flavors of a smoky chocolate chip cookie, cherries and evokes the essence of fall.
  • One Oatmeal Stout – The first in a series of five, this stout offers chocolate, barley, coffee and a creamy head, perfect as a transition into winter seasonals.
  • Too Cream Stout – The second of the same series, this stout contains lactose, or milk sugar, giving it a creamy mouth feel that mingles with chocolate and roasty notes.
Dark Horse in Bottles:
  • Raspberry Ale – Very mild and balanced fruit beer that uses real raspberries for flavor.
  • Special Reserve Black – The oldest in the Dark Horse family of beers, this thick, malty beer is heavy with roasty flavors and chocolate notes.
  • Tres Blueberry Stout – A fruity blueberry aroma mixes with flavors of chocolate and roast malt in this full-bodied stout.
