OktoBRUEfest! and a few other new items!

We may not make and Oktoberfest beer, but we still know how to celebrate this beer-centric tradition!

This weekend (October 2-4) we've lined up a whole three days of festivities at the Tasting Room.  Starting Friday with First Firkin Friday and as always we'll have a special cask on - a sneak preview of a new beer we'll be releasing soon.

Saturday, we'll be offering our Stimulus discount of 25% off all draft beer including growler fills.  On Sunday, Patrick will be manning the grill and serving up some brats to go with your beers,  and we'll be ending the weekend with one of our favorite events - Beer Geek Show & Tell!

If you haven't been to one of these before, we invite you to bring a 750mL/bomber/2 12oz bottles of a rare/special beer/exceptional homebrew that you'd like to share with everyone.  You'll then have a chance to taste what others have brought in.  It's a great opportunity to try some cool beers and talk with some fellow beer geeks about them.

Another item I want to mention is a new program we're implementing starting this weekend.  We will be putting up a new chalkboard in the Tasting Room and starting BRUE-it-forward.  In the spirit of sharing a beer with a friend, you'll be able to purchase a beer for someone else and we'll write their names on our BRUE-it-Forward board so that the next time they come in, they can redeem their beer and see that you purchased it for them.  The only thing better than enjoying a good beer is sharing one, right?  So come down and BRUE-it-Forward starting Friday.

Finally, we'll be announcing details about Black Tuesday this week, so keep your eyes open for that.  I promise it'll be a night not to be missed!  

Looking forward to seeing you all for OktoBRUEfest in the Tasting Room!

Wow, I saw the blog from Tomm Carrol who had a photo of the "line", more like a mob for the Black Tuesday! Gone in 30 minutes! Incredible job.
And you got to have Hottenroff served at the beer and food event too.
Great job on the best booth Rachel!
I'll see you Friday, Saturday and maybe Sunday too!
