It's been a bit of a balancing act around here.....

Hopfest is a mere 2 days away, we have been working as hard as we can to secure all the last kegs.  I can tell you it was a bit of a balancing act but we feel we have put together a really nice sampling of hoppy beers for your imbibing pleasure.  I will provide a short list of what will be on draft.  Well... scratch that I just posted the list to the hopfest tab...if there isn't a price next to an item it means that we don't have it in the cooler.  I usually shy away from posting info about stuff unless its actually in the cooler, but I'll take a chance on it.  Hope that wets your appetite.  See you Thursday.

Hopfest starts September 27th.

Hopfest is just around the corner.  Our cooler is starting to fill up with delicious hoppy beers.  We are hoping to have a wide variety of Fresh Hop beers in addition to the Imperial and Double Ipas. Here is a short list of what we already have:
Big Al Hop Soup
21st Amendment Hop Crisis
Russian River Pliny the Elder
HOD Blue Dot
Dogfish Head 120
Evil Twin Femme Fatale Brett IPA
Mad Viking Stingray Imperial
Emillese Black IPA
Southern Tier Gemini
New Belgium/Alpine Super IPA
Green Flash Imperial IPA
Just to name a few...the hops are being harvested as we speak and most of the brewers have started brewing with them...now all we had to do be patient.  We look forward to seeing you for Hopfest.

Calling Cross Racers! oh and Hopfest is coming.

It's that time again, can you believe it, fall is coming...the first MFG race is this Sunday in Kirkland.  We love cross and for the third year in a row we are helping ring in the coming of cross by hosting the Kick Off party here from 6-10 tonight.  The party will be upstairs.  The buffet will start around 6:45.  Look for Schooner Exact beer specials upstairs.  Please join us. 

Another friendly reminder.  Hopfest starts September 27th and runs through the weekend.  This is our annual celebration of all things hoppy.  We are hoping that the harvest is early enough that we can have a better fresh hop presence at the festival than we have in past years.  We invite you to join us, cause you live in the northwest and there's probably a good chance that you enjoy hoppy beers.  The T-shirts are already here, we went with an olive green shirt this year with the above logo on it.  We really like em, and hey they aren't black like most of our shirts.  We hope you plan on joining us.
