Well, BX is coming to the rescue yet again. Friday night marks the grand opening of their latest venture, the BX Backyard, an events venue complete with a brand new tiki hut, enough space to host killer live music, and seven taps pumping out the tastiest draft beer youre likely to find in South Florida. While the Backyard will not operate like a bar, BXs owner Sally Parsons says the new digs will be used to host biweekly events, intimate concerts, and private parties. The crown jewel of the Backyard is the chickee tiki hut, crafted specially for BX in the typical style of Muscogee Indians.
For Fridays gathering, BX will feature seven beers on tap: the stunningly hoppy Avery Maharaja, Averys regular IPA, Dogfish Head Immort Ale, German-style Weihenstephaner, Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown, North Coast Old Rasputin, and Widmer Drifter Pale Ale. Five bucks will get you a nine oz. pour, or you can get a sampler of five for $8. As far as jams, local bluegrass/rock outfit Smiley Tunehead will christen the joint while you christen the taps.
The celebration starts at 6 p.m. at 2964 Second Ave. N. in Lake Worth. There is a $10 cover. Call 561-965-9494, or visit bxbeerdepot.com.
