That's right! We are celebrating our 5th year of operation on Saturday, April 7th from 12pm - 9pm! We will have not 1, not 2, not 3, but THIRTEEN (1-3!) special release beers, including some 4pk and crowlers available for purchase. We will also still have all of your year-round favorites available as well. All beers being served will be $5, and serving size will range from 5oz to 16oz. Phill Me Up Cheesesteaks & Blue Donkey Cafe will be on site to provide sustenance throughout the day. You're not going to want to miss this!
Be sure to check back in for the final list of special release beers being announced right here!
First up on the release schedule is our yearly tradition of Anniversary Ale. This bad boy is rockin' an amped up grain bill that will push the ABV into elevated territories. It's packed full of flaked wheat and oats to ensure a solid mouthfeel. We are going with some classics on the hops and - and true to ourselves - providing a generous TRIPLE dry hop consisting of Denali, El Dorado, and Idaho 7.
Draft & 4 packs | $16 per 4pk | NO LIMITS! | Available at 12pm
This is also probably a good time to mention that we will be releasing all of our packaged beer offerings at NOON. Draft releases will still be staggered throughout the day, but we hope that this change helps ensures you can still continue to enjoy the fun without the worry of securing a spot in line multiple times a day.
$ Milken Stout $ will make its debut at our 5th Anniversary celebration. For those moments when you don?t want to crack into a giant pastry stout, this creamy milk stout is easy drinking, and boasts smooth coffee flavors and aroma. The toasted coconut shines and provides just enough complexity to keep you coming back for more.
$ Milken Stout $ will be available on draft and in crowlers! Limits TBD.
We will be serving THREE draft only releases at our Anniversary Party that were the ideas of our team members. All three were developed and brewed with Matt, but each concept lies with its creator.
Katie, who is part of our packaging team, will share Blood of the Democorgin - a strawberry, watermelon pale ale. We used real fruit puree, along with steeped hibiscus flower to give this dude a beautiful pinkish hue. It is dry hopped with Idaho 7 & Citra hops to ensure strong fruit and tropical flavors all the way through.
Tyler, another member of the packaging team, brings to the table Double Down to Brown Town, an imperial brown ale. Expect a big body, and plenty of roast and caramel flavors to compliment this 7.5% ABV treat.
Bradley, one of our Beertenders, will be happily pouring Dark Side of the Gecko, a black IPA. We used some oats for a solid mouthfeel, and threw in some Comet and Simcoe hops. Just for fun, we used our standard NEIPA yeast for added softness and balance.
Bourbon Barrel Polar Eclipse and Coffee Eclair Boubon Barrel Polar Eclipse will also both be available on draft only (5oz pours!). This may be one of your last chances to get your hands on these dudes!
Spoon Bender is a 5% double blackberry and lemon Gose that is sure to open your inner eye and awaken your sixth sense. This deep purple concoction is created by balancing the tartness and minerality of a Gose with the sweetness of blackberries, and a dose of lemon zest thrown in to create a bright citrus finish. We don't need precognition to tell you'll love this beer!
Chelsea, our taproom manager, teamed up with Matt to craft up a new haze monster. This NEIPA boasts those flaked oats and that flaked wheat and a touch of lactose for an easy drinker at 5.5% ABV. With no whirlpool hop additions, this dude gets to claim "zero IBUs." We've got an out of this world aroma from a healthy double dry hop of Citra & Motueka. ? Zero Cool ? will be available on draft & in crowlers!
ERWO Down Under is a little spin on your favorite IPA. We kept the same recipe but switched out the traditional Citra, Simcoe, and Mosaic hops for some Southern Hemisphere goodness. Expect an exotic and super tropical experience delivered via aroma and flavor. This tasty treat will available in crowlers & on draft!
Mosaic Milkshake delivers a smooth and creamy base thanks to the addition of milk sugar and vanilla. With no additional fruits added, expect the exclusive use of Mosaic to deliver big fruity melon and berry notes. Mosaic Milkshake will be available in crowlers & on draft!
You know those cookies called Samoas? The ones with the caramel, toasted coconut and dark chocolate drizzle? Yeah, we added 24 BOXES of them to our imperial stout Polar Eclipse. ??Scouts Honor?? will be available in crowlers and on draft! PLEASE NOTE! It is imperative that these crowlers are kept cold at all times.
Our final special release beer is ?Grapefruit 5th Anniversary? In case you need a reminder, 5th Anniversary Ale is showcasing a triple dry hop of Denali, El Dorado, and Idaho 7. In this one, we added some grapefruit puree to compliment the aroma and flavors of the hops. Grapefruit 5th Anniversary will be available on draft and in crowlers!
