We did this back in October and it was a lot of fun. So much fun that we decided to do it all over again. December 2nd, starting at 6pm, we will be opening bottles of Sofie and Matilda from this year as well as bottles of Lolita, Juliet, Halia, Madame Rose, and Gillian all from 2015. With wild ales like these, we found that giving them a year to sit and mellow out was the right call, so we’re doing it again. Keep an eye out for an email in which you can RSVP to. This was a fun, relaxed tasting in which we had some fun with some very nice, rather expensive beers. It is a great opportunity to try a $30 bottle of fruit added sour ale without paying the $30 price tag. It does hurt that instead of one, we will be tasting five.
You might have seen this in a Sam Adams commercial. A bunch of people standing in a circle, holding a full beer stein out in front of them for as long as they can. What you might not have known is that if you can hold a stein in front of you long enough, Sam Adams will send you to Las Vegas to compete in the National Stein Hoisting competition. The winner of that will be sent to next years Oktoberfest in Munich to compete in the World Championships. Think you’ve got the shoulder strength and endurance to go all the way? Come out Saturday October 15th when we will be an official location for people to try to qualify for this competition. People will be hoisting steins outside, but we will also be grilling up burgers and hotdogs. On the inside, we’ll have tastings of Sam Adams, Angry Orchard, and Truly Seltzer. We’ll have plenty of beer swag for people to take home, but the top times will bring home their own Steins. Everyone who enters the competition will be part of a raffle for a charcoal grill courtesy of Sam Adams. Come test your shoulder endurance and join us Saturday October 15th from 1-3pm.
Alcoholic seltzer is the new craze that will invade our shelves this year, and Nauti Seltzer is lining up to be the big name in the niche market. We’ll be tasting all their flavors Friday the 13th, 4-6pm. That means Cranberry, Lemon Lime, Raspberry, and Grapefruit will be opened and ready for you to try. Make sure to come and see what all the fuss is about.
