We hope everyone had a great New Year and we’re happy to be kicking off 2010 and our second full year of business here at The Bruery. This past weekend we were closed for New Year’s Day so January 8th will be our first official Friday of the year, and of the month. You know what that means – it’s First Firkin Friday.
This week’s Firkin will be Mischief dry-hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo. You may remember Mischief from a few months back when we conducted a little experiment with three different pilot versions of the beer. We served each at the Tasting Room and polled the crowd to determine a favorite. The results helped us to finalize Mischief, which will be released as our newest limited year-round beer.
Mischief is a crisp, dry and hoppy Belgian-golden ale that packs a punch at 8.5% ABV and yet maintains a smooth drinking quality. We will release bottles of Mischief this weekend exclusively at the Tasting Room, so come and get it!
On Saturday, you’ll be privy to a few delicious options for your beer and snacking pleasure, as we will be host to both Kogi BBQ AND the Frysmith truck. If you haven’t tried one or either, this is a good time to do it.
Frysmith specializes in fancy French fries with toppings like pork belly, fire-roasted chilies, cheese, and more. Kogi is a Korean BBQ Taco truck that fuses sweet and savory Korean sauces with Mexican-style staples like tacos and quesadillas. Both are uniquely delicious and both will be available at the Tasting Room Saturday night.
This week we’ll be pouring:
Orchard White (available for growler fills)
Rugbrød (available for growler fills)
Humulus XPA (available for growler fills)
2 Turtle Doves
Mischief (on cask)
Also, if you’re a Bruery Reserve Society member, your 15% discount has officially kicked in so come take advantage of it!
Please mark your calendars that Saturday, January 16th will be our Reserve Society Initiation Celebration. The Tasting Room will not be open to the public on this day, however it will be business as usual Friday and Sunday.
Finally, we want to congratulate Craig Bayer, the winner of our Gift Basket Raffle!
We’re looking forward to sharing new beer and great food with you this weekend.
Stef & the other folks at The Bruery
