Hello Beer Fans,
Just a short web update this week.Â We just got our new merchandise in today and we have some new women’s shirts and tank tops with new slogans including “Well behaved women rarely make history” and our Czech Proverb saying.Â We have new Men’s T Shirts, work shirts and zip hoodies.Â We have a new men’s slogan as well – “IBUs we can believe in” which come in a great new stone blue color.Â Check for the new merch above the bar on your next trip into the pub.
We have some fantastic new beers on tap right now including: Ballast Point Sextant Oatmeal Stout on the nitrogen tap so it is extra creamy, Kern River IPA, Anderson Valley Double IPA and Rodenbach Grand Cru, Steenbrugge Dubbel and Palm Speciale are still on tap from our Friday night promo.Â We also still have some of the great Palm and Steenbrugge glassware for sale – just $3 a glass.Â And we have some great looking Deschutes pints for sale as well.Â Look for some more Russian River beers on tap on Friday – see below for more info.
Thursday the 5th weÂ tap the first of our two Sierra Nevada casks.Â We don’t get many, so this is a special treat.Â The first will be Chico IPA, a double IPA, tapped on Thursday, March 5th at 5 pm.Â The second is an Imperial Smoked Porter that I can not wait to try on Thursday, March 12th.Â I also have a 5 gallon cask of Green Flash Imperial IPA coming that I am going to try and tap for the 5th if it shows up in time.Â If not, look for it on the 12th.Â We will also have a Sierra Nevada beer cheese on the 12th.
And speaking of Beer Cheese, Lindsey has the Guinness, Bacon and Green Onion and the Guinness and Chipotle beer cheese this week.Â It is a really incredible blend and the flavor of the beer is detecable.Â Look for Beer Cheese Plates as well as To Go Tubs.Â There will be plenty of Guinness and Cheddar Beer Cheese for St. Patrick’s Day.Â Check the board next to the tap list for all of the current flavors available to go and the food specials board for the Beer Cheese Plate.
We will have a small Russian River day/night on Friday, March 6th.Â We will have 6 beers on tap and 6 more in the bottle.Â We will have Benediction, Happy Hops, Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig IPA and Russian River IPA on tap all day long – they are all full size kegs and none will blow before we close.Â There will also be a keg of Pliny the Younger tapped at 11 am during lunch, so bring your drinking shoes.Â Â We will have six more beers in the bottle including Consecration, Damnation, Batch 23 Damnation, Temptation, Batch #2 Supplication and Beatification along with 3 liter bottles of Damnation.Â Our next Russian River event will likely be Friday, March 20th – check the email and pub for details.
New beers that you can look forward to over the coming weeks include: Hollister Bowling and Beyond double IPA, Alpine Nelson Rye IPA, Karl Strauss 20th Anniversary bourbon barrel Tripel, Deschutes Inversion IPA and Hop Henge, Lagunitas Hop Stoopid.
In other beer news, Alpine Beer Company has finally received their new ABC license.Â This will allow them to finally start brewing into their new tanks and produce more Pure Hoppiness!Â Hopefully we will see more of their great specialty beer on tap at the pub in a month or so.
