Tonight we're hosting a CINCO DE MAYO Potluck in the taproom. There'll be a taco bar with all the fixings plus chips and salsa and whatever other dishes + desserts you'd like to bring! These Sunday potlucks will come to a close before Memorial Day so come grab free eats while you can. Plus this is why we love the off season, time with all of you and your families. Come supper with us tonight, cheers!
We're signing on with Ferment Nation and finally bringing beer to Northern Virginia. Come out to Evening Star Cafe on APRIL 26TH for the Launch Party. It's a coming home for us, Josh cooked here and we lived here when Em was a babe. We have fond memories sitting down at the Front Porch, dancing in the Number 9 Lounge and chowing down on eats at The Majestic many a night with the baby monitor in tow. This little brick building that holds two bars, a cafe, a bottle shop and our old apartment holds our hearts too. It wasn't just a place where we worked and lived, inside these brick walls we dreamed up Black Narrows and longed to make Chincoteague Island home. We can't wait to see y'all. Let's drink to the memories made and the ones yet to be.

It's National Poetry Month and we're celebrating! We're welcoming poets of all ages and backgrounds to come and share their original work. Or if you'd like to read or recite a favorite poem by your favorite poet please feel free to do so. We grew up watching Anne of Green Gables recite THE HIGHWAYMAN and from the time we were little her performances (also LADY OF SHALOT) are etched in our minds forever. These are the kind of oral traditions we want to bring back to our sleepy island town, with a beer or two in hand.
This isn’t your typical Ladies’ Night. This is a free event with small bites and coffee included. You’ll also receive a free gift or two just because we love you. You’ll have the opportunity to buy some succulents and beer and hang out with some amazing women. We’ll keep it fun and casual but we do have a couple surprises up our sleeves. Plus we’ll end the night chatting with LOCAL ARTIST Rachel Alvarez about how she became the Nap Time Artist (I know many of you follow her on Instagram, she’s one of the best souls out there.) You’ll get to experience and possibly purchase some of her work in person. Check her out here: https://rachelalvarezart.com/
Please note there are only 26 spots for this event! Jenna will email you within 24hrs after you’ve signed up so you know if you got in or if you’re on the waiting list.
I’m so sorry, we’re full up for this one!
We hope you have the happiest of Easters with your family + friends. Please remember WE ARE CLOSED ON EASTER SUNDAY. We'll be taking some dandelions to our cheeks for Sunday Church Service, painting and hunting eggs and of course gathering 'round the table with our dears.
We're celebrating the upcoming ANTARES launch with friends from Rocket Frog Brewing Co. out of Sterling, Virginia. Richard Hartogs (Co-Founder) will be at NASA for the NG-11 mission on the 17th. Then the morning of the launch party we'll brew a collab farmhouse beer for a TBD release. At 4PM ON FRIDAY APRIL 19TH we'll tap beers from Rocket Frog in the tasting room. Be sure to stay for the vintage 16mm NASA footage on the big screen (at dark.) Here’s the lineup of beers for the weekend:
WALLOPS ISLAND BROWN | Brown Ale
CRUSHING STONE | Kettle Sour w/ mango + peach
ANGRY ALICE IPA | India Pale Ale

We've updated our hours and we're celebrating! Black Narrows is NOW OPEN Tuesdays thru Saturdays 4-10PM, Sundays 2-8PM. Come out tomorrow night and try a brand new beer, a "Brewer's Beer" version of HOW BOUT IT. It's crazy how sweet and fresh the corn is on this one, 3 weeks old kegged straight off the fermenter. This brew is so bright and beautiful, we know you're gonna love it. The corn is a mix of Pungo Creek Mills' Pipe and Bloody Butcher heritage varietals (grown on Virginia's Eastern Shore since the late 1800's.)
Here's your chance to share your favorite Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Mongolian, you name it- dish! And just in case all the Asian food you eat is takeout, no worries, just bring your favorite family rice dish or maybe a dessert to share. We're just happy to get together tomorrow over some food, fellowship and beer. Come hungry and ready to eat!
If you're feeling adventurous try one of Tide and Thyme's recipes:
LO MEIN | CRAB RANGOONS | GINGER PORK | KUNG PAO | MONGOLIAN BEEF | ORANGE CHICKEN
EGG ROLLS | POTSTICKERS | SPRING ROLLS | SWEET + SOUR | FRIED RICE
The breads & condiments will be back on the bar, plus a panini press if you wanna make a melt. Just bring your personal favorites (meats & cheeses.) We've got plenty of outlets for those of you bringing soups in crockpots, don't you worry. Or just come to eat, there's always enough food to go around so don't feel bad for showing up empty handed. It's perfect porch sitting weather. Go run around in the sun then come back and supper with us. We've got you covered.
We're releasing our 1st (EVER) batch of branded glassware at the Blarney Stone Pub on Thursday, March 28th. You can purchase a pint of local favorite’s HERE'S TO (seasonal) or COCKLE CREEK (mainstay) from 3-10PM. There are a limited amount of tulip glasses and the tradition continues on pint night of one per customer. We hope you'll come out and join the family and raise a glass to local craft beer brewed with local ingredients. We'll see you real soon!
Part of our Infinite Sky collection, PLOVER SEASON is a new lager coming into the tasting room this Friday, March 22nd. Brewed in the style of a Märzen or "March Beer" this beer marks the beginning of spring. The Piping Plovers are a threatened species across the coast and will be nesting soon. Please be aware of the signs and the rope along the beach this season and help us keep them safe so we can enjoy their beauty for years to come!
