Sample fall beers

The TinCaps are offering fans the chance to order a unique 12-pack of seasonal beers.

In the spirit of Oktoberfest, fans have until Monday to purchase this beer sampler. The promotion includes fall favorites from craft-beer brands around the region and beyond. Among the beers included in the sampler are Atwater Vanilla Java Porter, Bells Special Double Cream Stout, Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest and New Holland Dragon's Milk White.

“After losing our season in 2020, we pivoted to selling meal kits and seasonal beverage packages,” TinCaps President Mike Nutter says. “This proved to be so popular, we wanted to let our fans take advantage of it again thanks to our friends at Five Star Distributing. You literally can't get a variety pack like this anywhere else, and you can't beat the convenience.”

In 2020, the TinCaps garnered national attention from the likes of Sports Illustrated for their creative food and beverage pivot. Now, even after having a successful return to the field in 2021, the team is running it back.

One 12-pack is available for $34.95 plus tax. To order, go to

All orders will be placed online and picked up Oct.22 from Parkview Field's Diamond Lot. Packages include a taste guide, cups and more.

Trubble's brunch

Trubble Brewing is scaring up something special for Halloween.

The 2725 Broadway brewery will host a Halloween-themed brunch on Oct.30 and 31.

The “boo-tiful spread” will include some Halloween-themed dishes. The Bloody Mary Shakshuka is a spicy tomato and egg casserole with crusty bread. A Count Chocula French toast will be made with a Nutella-filled chocolate Pullman bread. And, of course, you can't have a fall-themed anything without pumpkin; the menu includes pumpkin waffles with whipped cream and praline pecans.

There will also be scary-good cocktails and the brewery's popular Monster Smash Imperial Marshmallow stout.

Costumes are encouraged, and you'll get a free order of pretzel bites when your whole table comes in costume.

Reservations for this event will be taken for parties of six or more. To make a reservation, call 267-6082 during normal business hours. The brewery is open from 4 to 9p.m. Thursday, 11a.m. to 10p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10a.m. to 4:30p.m. Sunday.


Because of a reporting error, the date of the pop-up brunch and dinner at Tazza Caf was incorrect in last week's column. The event will be 9a.m. to noon and 4 to 8p.m. Saturday. The caf is at 5991 Bluffton Road.

Around town

Proximo has expanded its hours and is now open from 7a.m. to 10p.m. Tuesdays. The restaurant had reduced its hours due to staffing shortages over the summer. A five-day operating schedule allowed employees to have time off.
