Howdy friends! We're right ready to hit the ground running this week on account of we've got a whole lotta rambling about beer that we gotta do, so let's get to it!
Bingo-bango, here's some mango
First on up we got a new beer that's comin' out on tap (right now) and in cans (this Friday) and that's Two to Mango! This here's another beer we brewed for our upcoming birthday party (spoiler alert: every beer release this month is gonna be a birthday beer. Also the party's August 27th - 29th and you should come!), more specifically we brewed it to pair with the music of Sunken City! These fine folks have been a part of our festivities for four friggin' years at this point so we figured we'd "mix it up" a lil' bit and dump a crapton of mango puree into a big, fruity IPA and now you can have some!
And speaking of releasing beers to pair with bands that have been playing at our birthday party for years and years, this year's rendition of Blood Built - a dry stout made to pair with the sounds of Blood Built Empire - is out in cans! Right now! Come drink some!
A zippy, fruity lil' thing to sip on as you contemplate the notion of humanity as a parasite or whatever
Oh! And while we're on about beers that are available in cans right now, we now have Vacant Throne (which was released on draft last week) available in cans! Right now!
A rare "kick the keg" special!
And since we're releasin' all these ol' birthday beers this month (three down, six to go!), we're doin' what we can to try and free up some draft lines and in practical terms that means that - until we get through the last little drips and drabs - Wellington is priced to move! So if you wanna say goodbye to ol' Wellington, or if you just wanna get some budget-friendly pints, come on by and get while there's gettin' to be got!
He popped the floatie, like, right after this picture was taken
And moving away from yammering about the birthday for a bit, it behooves us to mention an event that we've got coming up in the (slightly) nearer future and that's the dog pool party! We were supposed to host this earlier in the summer, but the rescue we were working with had to reschedule (which was honestly for the best because it ended up being crappy weather that day anyway) and it's coming up soon! More to the point, it's gonna be on Sunday, August 15th and you should come out and bring your pups!
We cannot wait to cram so many Matilda pastelitos into our mouths :D :D :D
And while we're on the subject of taproom events, we should probably mention that once September hits we'll be bringin' back taproom events in full force! We've been spending the past few weeks and/or months getting in touch with people that we had worked with in the Before Times and we've got a whole slate of tasty food and fun events and all kindsa fun crap lined up for y'all, so keep them eyes peeled as the temperature starts to drop!
Adequate work, Lia!
And! Lastly! It's been over a year since we've been able to say this, and it feels damn good to be bringin' this back: we've got coloring contest winners! There was some extremely adequate coloring this month, which made it a much tougher decision than usual, but we made our call and named our winner(s)! Congration!
The runners up!
Jared and Jimbo will tell you some things, sometimes.
