We are back from our weekend in San Francisco and the Toronado Barleywine Festvial.Â Along the way we stopped by Russian River and picked up some more kegs and bottles for another Russian River night.Â This time, we got full kegs of 5 different beers, so we should be able to have 10 different Russian River beers on tap.Â Look for more details in next week’s email.
Tonight, Thursday the 19th, we tap TWO Alpine casks – Duet IPA and Boris Imperial Stout, both at 5 pm.Â We also have plenty of the great Ballast Point Victory at Sea Imperial Porter on tap.Â Look for a cask of it next Thursday the 26th.Â I will also have some bottles of Russian River Batch 23 Damnation out for sale tonight.Â It is a strong version of Damnation aged with oak chips that is brewed every 23 batches – this is currently batch 46.Â Look for it on the draft/specials board.
Friday the 20th is our Full Sail Brewing night with Old Boardhead Barleywine, Wreck the Halls (a winter seasonal that is an IPA) and Lupulin IPA all on tap.Â We should also have some Full Sail pint glasses for sale.Â Next Friday the 27th we will host a Palm Brewing night with several Belgian beers on tap and glassware for sale.
And in festival news, tickets for the Belgian Beer Party are now on sale thru the Pizza Port website at www.pizzaport.com.Â The festival will be held in two 6 hour sessions on Saturday, March 28th – 10 am to 4 pm and 5 pm to 11 pm.Â Each session will have identical beer lists.Â Tickets are $40.Â If the tickets sell out on line, there will be no tickets available at the door.Â So if you want to go to a particular session, make sure to be your tickets on line.Â The first session is nearly 1/3 sold out already, so don’t delay.
That is your quick update for now.Â Look for a full email next week.Â Cheers, Tom
