The biggest game in 15 years is almost here!
As many of you know, we choose to not have TVs in the taproom to stimulate conversation. But we still want to provide you with some great beer to celebrate a championship!
So this Sunday, we’ll hold special hours and promotions. We’ll open at 11am and close shortly after kickoff at 5pm. All “session” beer-to-go will be discounted. We’ll be offering $10 growler fills of Hello, Darkness, River North White and BPR, and 4-packs of River North White pintcans for $8!
So start your gameday right with a few pregame drafts, and show up to your viewing party with the best beer in the house!
Sometimes, a barrel just does what it wants. And when it’s ready, it’s ready.
So this Saturday, we’ll have a surprise barrel-aged release for you…
Scotch Barrel J. Marie!
I love scotch. Scotchy scotch scotch…
Debuting February 1st at 1pm, Scotch Barrel J. Marie takes our classic farmhouse ale and adds layers of smoke, peat and oak.
If you enjoy sipping a fine Islay scotch as you lounge by the fireside in your studded leather wingback chair, this beer is for you. We don’t recommend drinking it on the rocks.
We bottled 110 cases of this one-time special release. Individually numbered bombers will be available starting at 1pm Saturday, with the brew on tap all day. More bottles will hit store shelves the following week.
Come keep it classy with us!
Unfortunately, we’re sad to say we have to cancel our beerdinner for Tuesday, January 28th with East Coast Joe’s food truck. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, feel free to come by and see us or give us a call. The taproom will still be open normal hours.
Just a quick heads up: the taproom will be closed Monday, January 20th. We’ll be taking the opportunity provided by MLK day to do some renovations. We apologize for any inconvenience. Come check out our new look starting on Tuesday the 21st at 3pm!
If you could age beer in any barrel, what would it be?
Over a few pints, Scott from Mr. B’s Wine and Spirits asked Matt that very question, and, based on a mutual love for High West whiskeys, the B-Side collaboration project was born.
The first beer in the series, B-Side Quandary, debuted in October, and people still rave about it. But the second needed more time.
Now, after exactly one year in the barrel, B-Side Avarice is ready!
Debuting Saturday, January 25th, B-Side Avarice was aged solely in rye whiskey barrels. Smooth oak and spicy rye whiskey notes meld with the robust dryness of Avarice. A slow sipper, this beer will blossom as it warms in your glass. Enjoy it fresh, or age for as long as you can stand.
On the 25th, we’ll release our bottles at 1pm in the taproom. Mr. B’s will have another release later that afternoon, so those who want more than the taproom limit can hit both. Just like B-Side Quandary, this beer will be limited and only available at those two locations. We bottled thirty cases total. Of course, it’ll stay on tap throughout that day, even once bottles sell out.
This was the second of the two beers conceived at the introduction of the B-Side project. But that doesn’t mean it’ll end. We look forward to working with our local bottle shop to bring you more great beers aged in only the finest of barrels!
