Lumpen 20th Anniversary Party + release of The Chairman

November 11, 2011 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am

No Cover

On 11/11/11 in collaboration with Half Acre Brewing Company, we are releasing a commemorative Lumpen 20th Anniversary beer called The Chairman.

The Chairman is a very limited release. It’s an Imperial Red Ale created to remember the men and women who worked on Lumpen magazine and became Chairmen of the Boring Theoretical Party (BTP). The Boring Theoretical Party began in the 1990’s. It was Lumpen magazine’s response to the boring, and uh, theoretically inclined armchair lefties. We started a “Worker’s Newspaper” edited by Chairman Thar, our beloved leader. Our symbols were the Armadillo and the Hoe. We had a theme song, a salute (raised fist while yawning), and we promoted that everyone should be the Chairman of their own Party.

You have a chance to bring a Chairman to the Party. Get a bottle (or three) at Half Acre Brewing Company or Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar on November 11, 2011.

We will celebrate at Maria’s with a Half Acre Tap Takeover pouring drafts of The Chairman, lager Town and other treats from the brewery.
