November’s Pizza and a Pale Ale features Boat Patrol and another brand spankin’ new pale ale alongside some fresh Bake Superior Bread pizza. Boat Patrol plays from 7-10 PM with pizzas arriving at the beginning of the show. We will announce specifics on the pale ale and specialty pizza as the event gets closer.

Boat Patrol began creating music in the Fall of 2017 in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Built on an improvisational base, the trio uses a trove of influences and techniques from genres ranging from bluegrass to avant-garde jazz to create extensive musical landscapes and textures. Avoiding simple categorization, Boat Patrol explores every nook and cranny of the musical palate with each live performance serving as a unique portrait of the band.
