Glow: Two-year-old SR76 has 11 house beers on tap. Supul, the Belgian-style saison, is a favorite, and don’t miss Eight & Quarter, the porter. Ales 4  A.L.S., an unfiltered IPA, is a liquid fundraiser for research into Lou Gehrig’s disease (good news since the holidays are all about giving).

To and Fro: While SR76’s quiet, comfortable tasting room occupies its own building outside the main casino complex, several eateries inside the resort pour SR76 beers.
