Rome City Lux debuts Friday. Speaking of suds, there’s a new brew from the brew crew on Broad Street. From Facebook: “To say we are excited about Trent (Prault’s) latest creation would be an understatement. We’ve been working on perfecting this Light American Lager all winter. It’s finally right, light and ready. Just in time for spring. We’ll release this beer on Friday and celebrate it all St. Pattys Day weekend at Rome City Brewing Co.” The tapping is set for 6 p.m. with a free acoustic show at 8:30 p.m. featuring Shane Rehburg. Green beer will be flowing.
