THE BAND: Originally formed as a prison/prom band at Charles Bukowski High School, Astro Tan spent years playing soul clubs on the ghost town circuit. The three-piece Psychedelic R&B band from Portland, Oregon, has also worked as the house act in the lounge of a derelict Japanese cruise ship, playing for forgotten Hollywood stars under a slowly turning disco ball since the late 70’s.

THE BEER: The City Never Sleeps imperial black saison emerges from the dark recesses of our minds. It was Gigantic's second release ever, and we are happy to be drinking it again as a crowd favorite in celebration of our 5th anniversary. It is a beer shrouded in mystery and depth of flavor, it could lead to a night you will never forget. Experience flavors of dark chocolate, cherry, blackberry, toffee, floral and peppery spice- all with a surprisingly light finish.
