Jan. 2nd:

Dear Snaggle fans,
As some of you have noticed, Blue Snaggletooth has been on hiatus for the majority of 2016.
Throughout the year, Casey and Joe moved on to other projects. If you like BST then you should check out their groups Wild Savages and Bison Machine.
As for Mike and I, he went on many awesome much-needed vacations, while I’ve been mostly focusing on family life.
But dig it,
Blue Snaggletooth will continue in some new form in 2017.

In the meantime, I can’t thank you all enough for your love and support!
Rock on in 2017!
-Chris Taylor

The time is finally here, it’s time to share the Blue Snaggletooth Beer!
Come out and celebrate the release of our very own Blue Snaggletooth “Serpent and the King” ESB, brewed specially by Oliver Brewing Company out of Baltimore.
We have a very limited amount of this beer on hand, only twenty 22 oz. bottles, so it’s first come, first serve.
Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
$5 gets you in the door, a cup of the beer, and some pizza.
The first 20 paying guests get to keep one of the bottles to take home.
We will have only 10 bottles for sale. The cost is $25 and it comes with extra goodies like a signed poster.

But that’s not all!

We’ll also be joined by our good pal and #1 Snaggle artist Jeremy Wheeler. He’ll have some selected Blue Snaggletooth original artwork on display for everyone to check out.
AND, we’ll be giving you a preview of 4 brand new Snaggle recordings!

AND, after everyone has tried the beer, we’ll be screening one of our favorite movies FIRE AND ICE!

Lots of other surprises planned!
Stay tuned for more updates.
