We weren't joking, theCHIVE really is taking the show on the road to Ireland in a few weeks. We're hopping the pond and heading to one of the best spots in town, Church Bar, to kick off our first ever international meetup on Saturday, February 22nd. We decided to let Mac come along, so we apologize ahead of time to the whole of Ireland.
Tickets will officially go on sale next Wednesday, February 5th at 12PM GMT. We'll see all our Irish Chivers soon!

If you live in Key West you know that theCHIVE has been coming to the Keys every year to ring in the New Year and defile ourselves properly with our friends on the crazy island.
This year, we're having an official New Year's Eve bash at the best bar in the US of A, The Green Parrot. The Green Parrot is an island bar for the people, the doors are always open to anyone so this is not a ticketed event. Just come as you are and make sure you arrive early ready to party.
The party starts around 9 pm-ish and finishes around ????ish. We will have badass limited-edition island KCCO's available at the event - you'll see them all around the island when you arrive and I get drunk enough to hand them out to Chivers as I bar hop.
(You can find cases of KCCO Black Lager at The Green Parrot Wine and Spirits Bar for your hotel room boozing when you arrive).
For all of my friends in the Keys, this is the reminder that the merry band of misfits are all coming. I rarely have my phone on me in Key West - y'all know where to find me.
If last year was any indication, this is going to be a HUGE party. See y'all in Key West!
For those of you who didn’t score tickets to tonight’s official Orlando meetup, we're throwing our afterparty at two bars, Vintage and Vixen, beginning at 10:30pm.
No tickets needed for either venue, but both will be packed by the time we stumble in so get there a bit early.
See y’all out there soon!
We couldn't resist making our way down to the Sunshine State for one last KCCO Black Lager meetup. Thank you to Don Jefe's for opening your doors...this will be our biggest bash yet!
Tickets for the Orlando KCCO Black Lager Meetup on Saturday, December 14th are available RIGHT HERE

As some of you know, theCHIVE has partnered with Redhook to launch a beer line, appropriately named KCCO. We need to staff up our newly formed Resignation Brewery which will share offices with theCHIVE in our Austin, TX headquarters. If you like beer and have social media experience and are a general badass, you can learn more about the position HERE
theCHIVE is proud to announce its partnership with Redhook Brewery to launch its first beer, KCCO Black Lager. If you're a bar owner/manager in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Seattle, San Francisco, or LA, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be the first to carry KCCO Black. Be prepared for large crowds of awesome Chivers.
Shortly after the first limited engagements, KCCO Black Lager will roll out nationwide. To find out where KCCO will be available near you, sign up on the Resignation Brewery Website.
My brother and I have created a unique, humble American beer crafted by a brewer who cares about its consumers to be shared by consumers who care about each other. Hopefully we'll even start some new American traditions along the way… RAK it.
