Deals of the week

In honor of Charlotte Beer Week, I bring you a sampling of the best beer deals going on around town:

  • After Alive After Five on Thursday, head over to The Attic for 100 Pint night, courtesy of RockHouse Events. The first 100 pints of beer are free -- just mention RockHouse at the door.
  • In honor of the "Beer Wars" nationwide event on Thursday, the Flying Saucer is hosting a pre- and post-premiere party. Reps from local distributors and breweries will be on hand, as well as the founder of Pints for Prostates. No cost to party, and it's only $5 to ride the party bus to Concord Mills for the movie screening (free beer on the bus!).
  • And speaking of the Saucer, I checked out the University City bar's popular trivia night for the first time Tuesday. It was a full house (and I heard it wasn't even as crowded as usual) of UNCC students and young professionals. No cost to play and first-, second- and third-place finishers win $50, $30 and $20 gift certificates respectively.
  • Big Daddy's Burger Bar is hosting a special Sweetwater Pint Night on Monday. Buy a pint and keep the glass for only $3.
