New Year's Firkin Eve and a couple other upcoming events.

First off we need to say thank you to all of you for your support over the past year(s), for without you we would not be able to do what we do.  Here's to more continued visits in the upcoming year!

We invite you to join us this evening for New Year's Firkin Eve!  We contacted Fremont, Reuben's, Big Al's, and American to fill our firkins which we are tapping at 6pm tonight, there will a complementary toast at midnight as well.  Here are the beers that are in the firkins:

New Years Firkin Eve!!!

The Holidaze are in full effect!  Thank you each and every one of you for your support over the past years, we would not be able to do what we do if it wasn't for all your support.  I am sure most of you have very full social calenders, I know we do.  Sometimes I just want to escape it all, sit on the couch and relax, but that's what January is for....We just put on 4 events in 7 days and the next one on the agenda is New Year's Eve.  We bought a few firkins awhile back, and were trying to decide what to do on New Year's Eve ( we need to plan ahead in case the world doesn't end on 12/21/12), and had a great idea.  We contacted Four local breweries, Big Al's, Reuben's, American, and Fremont, provided them with a Firkin, ( to pour starting at 6pm) and a 3L bottle(to be used as the toast at Midnight), and that the event. We invite you to join us to ring in the New Year in style.  We wish you all a safe and happy New Year.

We are also pleased to invite you to join us Thursday, December 13th 2 6pm for a Cascade Brewer's night.  We will be pouring Autumnal Belgian Ale, Darkest Day Black IPA, Counter Culture Spiced IPA, Defroster, Blueberry, Cranberry, Kriek and Noyaux.  We have been looking forward to having a Brewer's night with these guys for awhile now. 

Do you have New Year's Eve plans?  We are putting together an event that we have dubbed "New Year's Firkin Eve!"  We have partnered up with the other 2 locations, Bottleworks, and Burgundian, to fill all your New Year's Eve and New Years Day desires.  Bottleworks will be open until 8 pm on New Year's Eve, Burgundian will be open for dinner until 9pm on New Year's Eve, and then open again on New Year's Day from 10-3 to take care of all your hangover needs.  For our event here we contacted 4 local breweries, Rueben's, American, Fremont and Big Al and asked them all to fill a firkin for us to pour starting at 6pm.  They will also all be filling a 3L to be poured as the toast.   We invite you to plan on joining us for a fun evening.

Bigwood is just around the corner....

We have posted an up to date draftlist on the side bar.  We open tomorrow at 11am and hope you have made plans to join us.  We are pretty excited about this years list.  Note, a couple of weeks ago we posted a tentative list that had some beers that are not currently on the list.  There is always hesitation in posting a list early,  as game time decisions get made and beers we choose to tap change, or we decide to hold on to beers originally slated to be tapped  for other reasons.  We posted a list earlier than ever this year because the biggest complaint we have heard is that we held out on posting the list.   We hope that you  understand that we weren't attempting to be misleading, we listened to your wishes and published a list with the warning that not all of these might make the festival list.  Thank you for your understanding, and if you got your heart set on a beer that is no longer on the list we hope you realize that there are other delicious offerings there for you.  We look forward to serving you tomorrow and through the weekend.

 Don't forget that on Saturday we are hosting a Shmaltz Brewing Sweet 16 party with at least 8 barrel aged options from them.  It all kicks off at 2pm so come before or after you attend the Winter Beer Fest at Hales.
