Thank you to everybody that came out last night and partied with us. Our 2nd anniversary party was a huge success. Somehow, it was an even bigger turnout than last year. I’m reminded of opening night, fittingly, as we are running out of beers again. Both the Spring Pale Ale and Altbier taps are empty. The good news is, we have two new beers on tap that will help divert your attention from these taps. We still have 10 taps of beer for you …
Replacing the Cream Phoenix is our new Oatmeal Stout on nitro. It’s a creamy, slightly nutty, and very smooth stout. The grain bill is quite complex, with a base of British mild malt, both oats and rye bringing creamy complexity and subtle spice, Victory and caramel malts for nutty sweetness, and chocolate and debittered black malts for color and dark cocoa vibes. It’s 5.8%, and deeeeelicious.
Also tapped last night was the Kölsch, which you probably remember from the summertime. Bright, crisp and clean, using Pilsner malt and wheat, Czech Saaz and Mt Hood hops, it’s a very refreshing alternative to the stout, and 5% abv.
That’s two very good reasons to make sure Darren stays busy on the taps today, and we’ll get back to work and see if we can catch up on production with all the other staples you’ve come to expect. Here’s the current tap list:
- Rye IPA
- West Coast IPA
- Imperial IPA
- Spring Pale (out, for now)
- Wheated Red Ale
- Cascadian Dark Ale
- Oatmeal Stout on nitro
- Schwarz Kölsch (next up, Saison!)
- American Rye (coming next week!)
- Stress Test Single Hop
- Bee’s Wine Ginger Beer
P.S. Your reward for reading all the way to the end is the information that, as of this post, there is still a small amount of Anniversary Ale on tap. The bottles are all gone, though. Go get it!
