For starters, we got paid a visit by none other than the friggin' mayor! There was a podium and heartfelt speeches about how great Everett is and a ribbon cutting* and a TV crew to fully capture us in all of our awkward splendor. And we got an Official Citation! We were pretty stoked about this once we realized that the citation didn't involve the word "traffic" or any fines (instead it was printed and framed up quite nicely).
It's sure to be a bustlin' good time for all, though there are a couple things worth mentioning. Firstly, we can't open until the fest starts at 3:00 PM - so if you need to get your Bone Up in the early afternoon instead of waiting until the mid afternoon, you'd be advised to plan ahead and grab a growler on Friday. We'll be open from noon to eleven PM, as always, and this week we're rockin' with the Roving Lunchbox hand pie truck from 5-9pm!
And speaking of growlers, we won't be selling any to-go beer while the festival is goin' on (for liability reasons. We'll also be serving in plastic cups for similar reasons, which means flights won't really be an option).

Teamaker is a cool little hop that we wanted to get better acquainted with, so we threw a shitload of it (maybe even two shitloads) into a nice, medium-bodied pale ale! We're still getting to know the beer, but these woody, floral aromas are keepin' us bendin' our elbows every time we pour a pint for "research purposes." Debuting this Friday in the taproom!
Sometimes you just gotta have an old-school citrus-and-pine IPA, so we took some Classic American Hops, chucked them in the kettle, and mixed in just a *pinch* of Bone Up Magic. We ain't gonna strip the enamel off your teeth, but we are gonna give you a solid beer for solid times. Enjoy it now in the taproom while it lasts, or go grab a pour from our friends at Mystic Station or Rosebud Kitchen!
Woke up Sunday morning, not a way to hold your head that doesn't hurt? Drink this beer for breakfast, and maybe have another one for dessert... Barely over three percent but still packin' loads of flavor, Redeemer's a little nutty and just the right amount of roasty. This guy is super smooth-sippin' and lets you keep the party goin' while you redeem yourself from the sins of the previous night (just make sure to wear your cleanest dirty shirt).
** The other part being that we just opened a couple weeks ago.
*** Yes, really. In our parking lot, in fact! If you're lucky, they might even be cooked.
