I love this week, it will always have a special place in my heart for all the fond memories it has created over the years. The Brewers Association puts on ACBW to showcase the talent of American Craft Brewers. To be a member of the Brewers Association a brewery must be small(under 6 million bbls a year), Independently owned, and traditional(no flavored malt beverages). While not a requirement, one of the greatest things about American Craft beer is the stories, everybody loves a good story. Brewers often work through legislation, capital issues, mechanical issues and acts of god to bring beer to you. The story for us at the pub is no exception but we can save the telling for a campfire or cold winters eve.
What I am going to tell you about is the seven days of badass ‘Merican Craft Beer we have planned for you.
Amypalooza launch (at 1130am). You read that right. It’s back for the attack and bigger than ever before. For all the spicy, dry, banana and clove delight packed into this easy drinking Belgian Tripel you would never know it is 9.4% . This is also Amy Jones brewing debut!
AmyPalooza is our Belgian Tripel brewed by Amy! It will be 4.50 for NINE ounces or 22 for 64oz growler(to go only)
We will also have a Prarie Noir Four Pack to go only. This will include Noir, Coffee Noir, Vanilla Noir and Wine Noir for 48 dollars. Wonly have a dozen. Not sold individually, to go only. The noir series is a barrel aged oatmeal stout with a few variations, all of them delicious.
As usual we will have our Geeks Who Drink Trivia Night but this week will have some beer themed bonus questions. Deschutes will be in house and we will be tapping Black Butte XXV. Read that right. Yerp. BBXX on draft. We will also have 3 dollar Chainbreaker, Black Butte Porter and Twilight. Trivia at 8pm BBXXV at 7pm. Come early, stay late, show us how smart you are.
We will be launching our new house beer, a traditional Bock style. Still no name but it should be hilarious. We will start serving at 1130am. This is our first LAGER. Lagers are fermented at lower temperatures and take longer to mature. It is about 7 percent, very lightly hopped, moderately sweet with notes of caramel, toffee and chocolate. Don’t miss out on this bad boy!
Usually we do glass night on Thursdays. This week we are doing it a little different. This Thursday is Growler night. Our Zio Carlo Stainless/insulated growlers will be $22($11 dollar discount) and our glass will be $5(half off) What a deal! For those of you not in the know, growlers are vessels for taking draft beer out of the pub with you. You buy the growler, fill it, drink it and bring it back and repeat.
Growlers are great when you are on the go or looking to party with your bros on a pontoon boat.
Prairie Wine Noir Tapping 6pm. $8 for 9 ounces of heaven. I don’t usually play favorites, but of the Noir series this is my boy. No growlers please.
Founders KBS in bottles for on premise consumptions starting at 1130am. $14
$3 Martinhouse Daybreak during brunch 1030-230. If you have never had our brunch, come on out! We will post this weeks menu later this week!
We love brewing and sharing our craft. Austin and Carlo have put in some hours in the brewhouse and I dare say that the latest two beers are the best yet. Lets party and celebrate #acbw!
