New Year's Eve

We are open our regular hours on New Year's Eve. You ask, "Are we doing anything special to ring in the New Year?" The answer is simple, "nothing short of what we do ever day". Thank you for your support over the years and we look forward to serving you in the upcoming year.

We are closed on Sunday, January 1st for our staff to enjoy the new year. We hope that you do the same.

Let's all celebrate!!!

Chanukah, that is. On Tuesday night, December 20th, the first day of Chanukak, as part of Shmaltz's 150 Chosen Bars we will be pouring Shmaltz's Jewbelation 15, Lenny's RIPA and Smaltz/Terripin Reunion Ale. Come in and have a glass or two. The Jewbelation 15 consists of 15 malts, 15 hops and is always a unique and rare beer. We are looking forward to having it on draft.

Don't forget that on Saturday, December 17th at 4pm the Firestone Walker's Ugly Sweater Party kicks off. We will be pouring a special beer, there will be a special 25 oz glass available and prizes @6pm from under the Charlie Brown Christmas tree. Wear your ugly sweater, come in and enjoy delicious and hoppy Firestone Walker beers. For those of you that attended Bigwood last week and enjoyed the unblended Velvet Merkin we will be tapping another keg around 6pm as well.

How Bout that Ugly Christmas Sweater?

In the last post I mentioned that Firestone Walker had something in the works, and to find that Ugly Sweater.(there's a visual aid pictured above) Well I am pleased to inform you that this event, Think Ugly Sweater with a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, is this Saturday, December 17th at 4pm . We will be pouring a very special beer from Firkins in to these:
Santa knows you, here in the Northwest, love all things hoppy and has a very special beer for you. No, I am not going to say exactly what, but I can assure you that your taste buds will thank you for showing up. In addition we will have Pale 31 (pre J), the UJ(in its purest form), Velvet Merlin (the other side of the rainbow), and towards the end of this event we will be tapping an Unblended Velvet Merkin (Rainbow in the dark)...all words in () provided by the Firestone rep.

Alright, you probably are bored of me typing on so you want details, here you go:
1. Wear your ugly sweater
2. The event starts at 4pm, we have a limited (40) of the large mugs pictured above, have a mug and you get to be the some of the first to taste this special beer. It is 25 oz, cost $20 filled on the first time, $12 dollars the second time. (you can still drink this beer without a mug but it will cost $7 a pint).
3. With your mug purchase you also receive a ticket for a prize that will be under the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree (gifts will be given between 6 and 7). Gifts will run the gamete from funny to awesome.
4. Have fun, it is the holidays after all, a time to reflect and be thankful.
5. Hope to see you Saturday!
