DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings are proud to present the return of the Hockeytown BrewHaHa Craft Beer Happy Hour and Dinner set to be held inside Joe Louis Arena on Friday, April 25 from 5:30 – 9:30 p.m. Building off the widely-successful Hockeytown BrewHaHa Event Series, the second annual event will feature a firkin happy hour and a seated five-course dining and beer pairing experience.

Tickets are $64.50 apiece and can be purchased at the Joe Louis Arena box office, all Ticketmaster outlets (1-800-745-3000) or online at

The event will highlight five popular craft breweries – Atwater, Bell’s, Griffin Claw, Blue Moon and Dragonmead – represented throughout each course and paired with gourmet meal selections to enhance the beer profile and entice the palate.

The happy hour will feature firkins, specially-brewed, small-barrel casks of craft beer, from the participating breweries. Attendees will receive three tickets, each redeemable for a 4 oz. pour from the firkin of their choice. During the cocktail hour, behind-the-scenes tours of Joe Louis Arena will be available to guests in attendance. In addition, a Red Wings Stanley Cup championship banner will be lowered to ice level, offering a unique photo opportunity.

The menu theme for the five-course meal is “Global Local” – featuring cuisine from around the world, locally sourced from the region of its origin. Five different Olympia Entertainment Chefs will each present a course and work with the breweries to execute the beer pairing. Guests will enjoy the paired craft beer while dining on each course, along with brief presentations from the chef and brewer about the dish, beer selection, flavor profile and pairing.

A limited quantity of VIP reserved tables of eight are available for $600. VIP guests will receive premium, reserved seating and an additional firkin ticket. Tables of eight are available for private reservations by calling 313-394-7593 or emailing In the event a Red Wings home playoff game falls on April 25, the rescheduled BrewHaHa date would be Saturday, April 26.
