Opening at noon today

We’ll be open 2 hours early today at noon for Washington Beer Open House. We’ll be giving a buck off for every 4 beer tasters ordered in a flight, and giving tours of our little production space, while discussing the process of making commercial beer on a nano scale.

You may have seen the National IPA Competition results from last week. Sadly, the prized Philistine IIIPA lost to a fantabulous beer in the first round. Tough competition came from Barley Brown’s Tank Slapper. The Rye IPA also lost, but our West Coast IPA, Imperial IPA, and Imperial Rye IPA advance to this weekend! Look for results Sunday night.

Lastly, we’ll be running out of Imperial Rye IPA soon (maybe tonight?). Next up is Cream Phoenix … a Rye Cream Ale on nitro. 5.6%, very light, mellow, and easy drinking beer for these gorgeous spring days. Goes well with barbecue and yard work. Since nitro beers don’t survive growler fills, we’ve carbed up a couple with CO2 for growler fills, so when it’s on, you can take some home and make it your weekend beer of choice.
