There have been some developments in our never ending march toward world domination.
We’re on tap at three new places! Starting this week we’ve made deliveries to:
- McGarret’s, and
- Salumeria Belsito
If we’re not yet on tap at any of them that probably means they’re waiting for a tap line to open. It won’t be long!
Next Wednesday: Pizza Plant
Don’t forget that in less than a week we’ll be launching Singularity (Falconer’s Flight) at the Transit Pizza Plant location. I hope you appreciate that I’m not saying it’s “taking off”; even I have standards, though that might not always seem to be the case. In addition to the fourth installment of our single hop IPA series, we’ll also be bringing along a cask of The IPA dry hopped with Citra hops as well as Heatrays, our barleywine that we’ve been aging for just such a special occasion.
Not good enough? How about Mr. Superfantastisch, Espresso Whale, Stout Affective Disorder and The IPA? Oh. Oh yes.
Next Thursday: Merge
Yes, the very next day. It’s like our own private Buffalo Beer Week in July. In January.
You may have missed the update to last week’s post, as no sooner had I hit “publish” than we had a menu and a link for tickets! (It’s also important to note that we initially said it was a vegan dinner when it is instead vegetarian, and I apologize for the mistake). We’ve also got a menu for you:
- Cream of Mushroom Soup with Dijon Bavarian Pretzel (with The Whale)
- BBQ Bean Curd Sliders with gruyere cheese, horseradish aioli, and pickled vegetable slaw (with The IPA)
- Potato Gnocchi with nicoise olives, red onion, baby arugula, roasted red potatoes, and parmesan chips in a roasted garlic and white wine sauce (with De Maas)
- Pecan Pie with homemade ice cream (with a Stout Affective Disorder ice cream float)
As always, you don’t actually have to be a vegetarian to enjoy meatless food! I mean, look at that menu. I’m drooling. Tickets are $45, or $30 if you don’t want the beer.
The CBW Book Club: details edition
We’ve had a great response so far to my latest wacky idea: everyone read The Audacity of Hops by Tom Acitelli, then we get together and drink some beer and talk about what we thought.
Free market capitalism is great and all, but we’d sure love it if you’d support Talking Leaves: it makes sense to pair local beer with a local bookstore, don’t you think? Email me if you’d like to buy a copy of the book: on Monday the 27th I’ll tell them how many copies we need and they’ll order them with a 15% discount. (If you absolutely must order from The Monolith, well, we won’t judge you)
So, again: you have until 1/27 to tell me you’d like a copy. They’ll arrive soon afterward and then we all set about reading it. Then on Wednesday, March 5th, having been given a suitable amount of time to get through the book, we’ll convene to discuss it on the second floor of Mister Goodbar at 7.
This sounds good, right? It’s going to be a grand old time.
Double duty on Saturdays
Saturday was our first day at the Horsefeathers winter market and I quite enjoyed myself! It’s where many Bidwell vendors and attendees have migrated for the winter, so I saw plenty of familiar faces as well as quite a few new ones.
To recap: from 9-1 each Saturday we’ll be at the market, on the corner of Connecticut and Normal, in addition to our regular brewery hours of 11-4. We’ve got two shiny new kegerators we’re pouring out of, so you have four beers to choose from. For now they’re Frank, The Whale, The IPA and Stout Affective Disorder: sorry, fans of De Maas, but you can still get it back at the brewery!
We’ll be at Horsefeathers every Saturday until the Bidwell farmer’s market starts again, so you’ve got a continuous stream of markets at which to find us for months to come.
The hoodie resupply
It’s cold! You should bundle up!
We’ve had hoodies for a while now, but our stock was dwindling. We didn’t have any 2XL. The village was growing restless.
That’s been fixed! We now have them in sizes M, L, XL and 2XL. Come down to the brewery to get them!
We stopped at Horsefeathers this weekend for the first time & chatted with Bob. We sampled a few of the beers & ended up getting a growler of Stout Affective Disorder. Bonus, now we have a CBW logo growler for future refills.
