Summer is here! Among other reasons, we love summer because it's good beer drinking weather. With that in mind, we've decided to expand our regular taproom hours to include every Thursday from 4-10 PM. (4-10 AM would be a little aggressive, even for us...although the idea of having happy hour before work is intriguing.) Thursdays will feature growler sales and a rotation of food trucks, just like any other day we're open. The new hours start today (Thursday, June 7th), so if you're looking for a new happy hour option this afternoon, stop by. Saucy Burts will be here to provide some hot meatball sandwiches for you.
If you're not stopping by the taproom but you're in the mood for a nice "dessert", head over to Stanley's Northeast Bar Room tonight, Thursday June 7th. Starting at 6:00 out on the patio, they'll be serving Worthy Adversary infused with coffee beans, vanilla beans, and oak chips, paired with a cigar hand-rolled on site by the folks at International Cigar! If you're looking for some lighter flavors, they'll also be rolling another cigar to pair with Sweet Child of Vine. This is not your average pairing event.
Another great thing about summer: fresh produce! We're big believers in fresh, local food (kind of like fresh, local beer), and we've found that one of the best ways to buy produce is through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Program. Just because we're all about making your life easier, we've teamed up with our friends at Tangletown Gardens to offer a CSA pickup right here at the brewery! To sign up or for more information, click here, stop by the brewery and grab a form, or contact the kind folks over at Tangletown. The brewery pickup will be on Tuesdays from 4-6, starting on June 19th. You'll be able to pick up a growler on those Tuesdays as well.
Finally: brewery tours! We've been promising to offer tours for quite some time now, and we're happy to say that the first official day of tours will be this Saturday. Here's how they're going to work: We'll offer three tours every Saturday, at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00. The only way to sign up is in person at the brewery on the day of the tour (sorry, no advance bookings at this time). We can take up to twenty people during each time slot. Tours are free, so whether you enjoy yours or not, you'll get your money's worth.
See you soon!
