Temperance Beer Company and Sketchbook Brewing will have giveaways and specially priced beer. Sketchbook also has a new pale ale called “Moonrise” brewed exclusively for and only available at Prairie Moon and at Sketchbook’s taproom.

DJ music featuring DJ Tee-bot and guests will start spinning at 9pm.  Other grand opening specials include: free slices of Tony’s Red Velvet Cake and a Champagne Cheers at 11pm. There is also an unsubstantiated rumor that someone is making balloon animals!
