Omega has planned one of its best Record Store Days yet. 

Record Store Day is an annual event started in 2008 to celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store. “The day brings together fans, artists, and thousands of independent record stores across the world,” according to Wikipedia.

The special Warped Wing tasting is the brand new Brainiac Pale Ale that’s simultaneously being released the very same day at the brewery. “We’ll have 6pk cans of Brainac for sale in the morning (while supplies last!) and we’l also be holding a beer tasting in the store at 5 p.m. Proceeds from the beer sales to benefit our friends at Five Rivers Youth Rugby Foundation,” according to the Omega events page

Shoppers can stop by Warped Wing after purchasing new records to play them on a turntable in the Taproom.
