The Corvus Black Lager Release Party

The Corvus Black Lager Release Party

Third Place Brewing is not only excited, but extremely honored, to celebrate the Ravens from McConnell Air Force Base’s 344th Air Refueling Squadron!  On Friday, January 11, Third Place Brewing and the Ravens will be tapping the Corvus Black Lager. The unit has a long, storied history within the Air Force.  Initially established as a WWII bombardment squadron, they began their brotherhood under the name “Black Birds” while flying the B-24 Liberator over North Africa and Italy.  Toward the end of the war, they transitioned from the B-24 to the B-29 Superfortress, the first bomber to be entirely manufactured in Wichita.  In 1986, the “Black Birds” had been officially deemed the “Ravens” as they transitioned to an aerial refueling unit, first flying the KC-10 Extenders then the KC-135 Stratotankers. When choosing a name for the lager, it was unquestionably going to be called “Corvus” – Latin for “Raven.”  McConnell AFB’s “Ravens” continue the traditions rooted in rich history and brotherhood, and their stories will carry on as the Unkindness; a gathering of ravens. Come celebrate with us and the Ravens as we welcome in the New Year and a fresh off the ramp, new craft beer in honor of the Ravens – the Corvus Black Lager! Tapping will be January 11 at 6 p.m., with complimentary Knolla’s Pizza with a purchase of beer, and live music that’s sure to keep the party going!

Final Friday with artist, Tabitha Webb

Final Friday with artist, Tabitha Webb

Tabitha Webb, born in Independence MO, moved to KS with her grandparents at the age of 8.  She graduated high school in 2001, and even though she won several awards and a couple scholarships for her art, decided that being a “starving artist” wasn’t very lucrative.  Working as an executive assistant for the past 13 years, she balances her career, two children, and social life, and paints and draws in her spare time.

Tabitha enjoys using bold and bright colors in her paintings and drawings as a way to grab the attention of the observer.  Basing most of her paintings on her moods, she has an eclectic way about what she decides to do next and there really is no rhyme or reason to it.
