Timing Is Everything
Good news is hard to keep quiet, so I won’t. We have holiday hours to report as well as some upcoming releases. So, buckle up, tighten your chin strap and hold on for a whirlwind extravaganza of sophomoric humor and derisive condescension.
Because we love our employees, and we don’t want them calling in sick on a holiday, we have decided to close for business on Thursday, November 27, 2014. We will reopen regular hours on Friday after Thanksgiving. Please take the opportunity on that day to think of all that we have to be “Thankful” for, like loose shoes…
The collaboration brew we helped out with at New Belgium Brewing is in stock and ready to be consumed. “Super IPA,” the defender against bad beer, is brewed to 9% abv and uses Columbus, Amarillo, Simcoe and Centennial hops. This beer cranked up the IBU’s to 99 and has acidulated and melanoidin malts for that malty/tart flavor. We’ll be serving it in the pub and for growler fills.
A new beer we named “HFS” is being released on Friday, November 28, it is a single IPA at 6.5% abv and uses Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe hops throughout. We really like the flavor and aroma of this one so don’t wait too long to try it as I will surely drink more than my fair share.
Next week, by Thursday at the latest, we will be putting on some fresh “Hoppy Birthday,” the most celebrated beer in the world. This beer is our hoppy pale ale that’s brewed like an IPA. It weighs in at 5.25% and is quit sessionable.
Pizza Port’s Strong Ale Festival will be back on Friday and Saturday, December 5 & 6. We’ll be there too, with beer. Yummmy beer. “Super IPA” and for VIP “Barrel-Aged Odin’s Raven.”
We will be a part of the LA IPA Fest on Saturday, December 6, 2014. Mohawk Bend, a bar in LA is, again, hosting the blind judging of mostly local IPAs. Judges are professional brewers and it was a good time last year. Shawn will be there to judge and be a celebrity, be sure to ask for his autograph.
That is all the news that’s fit to print. Look for more news in the coming months on our move to the “new pub” location at 1347 Tavern Rd., #23, next to Ace Hardware.
This is where I’ll usually insert some sage advice on how to avoid an injury or accident. But, this time, I’d like to address a broad scale social issue affecting us all. Morality, the principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong. If we teach our kids it’s okay to act like a thug or accept their desire to dress inappropriately are we really doing them and society justice? When they get killed because they think it’s okay to steal and assault, who is really to blame? Right and Wrong or Good and Bad are to be taught by parents, so be a good, moral parent. Thank you and drive safely.
