On tap this week: Wheated Red Ale and Hopscotching

Good and faithful beer drinkers –

The Wheated Red Ale is making a return to the taps tomorrow (Thursday), as is a new batch of the West Coast IPA (which could run out for a brief moment tonight). I’ve been fine tuning my Saison recipe while watching the weather forecast. I’m seeing a lot of yellow on blue in our near future, and so I’m thinking it’s about time to squeeze a batch into production. Keep your eyes peeled for some light refreshing farmhouse ale!

Saturday is the soon-to-be-world-famous CD Hopscotch, and we’ll be opening up early for it. If you haven’t heard, Jackson Commons has organized what is sure to be a great community event – 1.8 miles of hopscotch through the Central District, bringing together what seems like a vast majority of CD businesses and neighbors. The course opens at 9:00am, and the start point is at the Seattle Girls School just up Jackson. There will be a world record attempt for the most people hopscotching at once around noon. 12:00-1:00 sign up, 1:00-1:30 go time. Standard Brewing will have special hours, from noon till 8:00, and we’ll be celebrating all of this awesomeness with $1 off pints from noon till 6:00, when the course wraps up. My recommendation is that you come toss back a pint in preparation of your romp through the neighborhood. Then when you meet a bunch of new friends, bring them back to the brewery and celebrate your entry into the world record books over a second, third, and fourth round. Follow this link for a comprehensive map of the event, and we’ll see you there!
