Howdy do, kiddos and squiddos! It's once again time to spread joy and drink tasty beers and maybe get some treats if you're a treat sorta person (and let's be real here, you should be) and anyway we got a buncha cool stuff so check it out!
First on up is a beer that got tapped during a certain made-up holiday that we recently celebrated, only we didn't make too much of a scene about it because we didn't want to "steal the thunder" from our "main event" and anyway that beer is Spruce Moose! This here's a "historically inspired" beer that we made for a historical house (which we touched upon last week), so we figured we'd take a Modern Classic and add a touch of Questionnable Historical Accuracy, and now we've got an old(ish) school American Pale Ale brewed with spruce tips! It's nice 'n' easy drinkin' and a bit hoppy and it doesn't quite taste like you're drinking a forest in late autumn, but it also doesn't quite not taste like that. Anyway, it's on tap right now and you should come taste for yourself!
And while we're on about Spruce Moose, this month we're doin' Simpsons trivia on Wednesday! There's probably a theme this month, but our theme is "getting Chris to stop giving us shit about needing to make a Simpsons-themed beer (especially since this is the second guldang time we've done just that)."
Movin' onwards and arguably upwards, we gotta mention cheese! Cheese flights are in the past (and also the future), but if you missed out (or if you just have good taste in cheese), you can get wedges of this month's Creamery of the Month (Jasper Hill, from somewhere in Vermont)!
Next up on that ol' docket is this week's trusty Thursday cask! This time around we're tappin' up a beer we ain't had on cask in a dang ol' while (possibly several whiles, if we're being honest here): Wasted Life! And since this lil' beer's making it's triumphant re-debut or whatever, we figured we'd "do it in style" with one of our favoritest, fruitiest hops: Rakau!
Movin' right along, we've got a double whammy of a release this Friday and it all starts with Joy! Thassright, it's that time you (we) have all been waiting for: Joybringer time! We're bringin' the joy back on tap, and we're fully stocked up on bottles of this boozy lil' delight, so come on and get joyful with us!
And you know what else brings us joy? Coloring! We like it so much that we made a coloring book (featuring all of our coloring contest pages since 2017, plus a few special goodies for good measure) and they're comin' out on Friday and we are just hell of stoked!
Then on Saturday we've got another double whammy (which either makes the weekend a quadruple whammy or a double whammy of double whammies, depending on your beliefs), and it's startin' with Pints for Pups! Our new pals at Harvey's Hope are comin' by with some swag and some info and we'll be donating $1 from every pint poured so come on out and get charitable with us!
And after all that charitable drinking, you'll need to treat yourself and we got just the thing because Boston HotChix is back in the house from 6-10!
Jared and Jimbo will tell you some things, sometimes.
