First Firkin Friday; Beer & Ice Cream Social - this weekend!

October was quite a month for us at The Bruery, and we finished it with a great Halloween party on Saturday night.  Thanks to everyone who came, and thanks to everyone who participated in the costume and donut-eating contests.  We had a blast!

Now that November is here, we’re getting geared up for the holidays.  But first things first, and as always, we will start the month with First Firkin Friday.  

This Friday, November 6th, we’ll be pouring a special cask of Rugbrød dry-hopped with Centennial hops.  I think that extra hop kick will be delicious in this big, malty beer.  

On Sunday, we'll be holding a Beer & Ice Cream Social.  That's right, beer floats all around!  Think of a scoop of your favorite ice cream enrobed by a complementary beer flavor like Pecan Praline & 2 Turtle Doves.  The nutty, caramel flavors of both coming together with the rich chocolate of the beer.  Ok, maybe we were thinking about my favorite flavors!  

We'll have a special flight available as well as a small ice cream bar where you can mix and match to create your perfect beery treat.  We'll kick this off Sunday around 2 pm, so come in hungry for some breakfast or lunch dessert!

Also this weekend we'll have Rugbrød and Mischief #3 back on tap in addition to our usual lineup.  So come try Rugbrød with Centennial on cask Friday and start thinking about your ice cream and beer concoctions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
