Reuben’s will hold a Good Hair Day launch event at its taproom at 5010 14th Ave NW this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Rudy’s stylists will be on hand starting at noon “to serve up buzzcuts, bang trims and fresh fades” (hopefully while not drinking too much beer.)

    Brewery collaborations are all the rage these days, and Reuben's Brews has a unique one in store: a 25th anniversary beer for Rudy's Barbershop called "Good Hair Day." "While a beer partnership might seem unlikely for a barbershop, we've never been ones to do what's expected and that's how we've stayed fresh," said Danny Segal, director of marketing and brand at Rudy's, which first opened in Capitol Hill back in 1993.
