Archer’s Tavern launches ‘Mad March to Michigan’ contest tomorrow

Here’s how it works, according to Dan Apolito, co-founder of Archer’s, which opened the Kettering pub as its second location at 2030 E. Dorothy Lane last fall:

From now until the end of April, Archer’s Kettering will feature, on a rotating basis, beers from four Michigan breweries: Bell’s Brewery, Founders Brewing Co., Dark Horse Brewing Co. and New Holland Brewing.

“We have been serving beers from all four of these outstanding breweries since we opened our first location almost seven years ago,” Apolito said. “I have wanted to do something special for our guests that highlighted this unique group of breweries, since they are located less than two hours from each other, and just a few hours from Dayton.”

During the next three months, guests who visit Archer’s Tavern on Dorothy Lane to take part in the promotion can enter to win gift cards to each brewery, guided tours of each brewery, and hotel accommodations.

“We have invited representatives from each brewery to take over our bar at least one night during the promotion,” Apolito said. Those brewery representatives will bring with them “brewery swag” such as bottle openers, hats, shirts, “and anything else they want to share with our guests,” he said.

All four breweries have committed to traveling to Kettering to take part in this event, although exact dates have not been finalized for each, the Archer’s founder said.

Archer’s Kettering will post featured beers and special guest appearances on the Archer’s Tavern Kettering Facebook page.

This promotion is taking place only at the new Kettering pub, located in space that previously housed a Tumbleweed Southwest Grill that closed in January 2014. The pub/restaurant opened its flagship tavern six years ago at 9496 Dayton-Lebanon Pike (Ohio 48) in south Centerville.

Archer’s serves a variety of burgers, pizzas, sandwiches and salads. It served two dozen beers on tap, including two signature Archer’s brews, Archer’s Ale and Stone House Lager.
