First up is the triumphant return of cask! We're kickin' things off with a cask of Kelly and normally we go "straight up" for the season's first go 'round the beer engine, but BEN got some "big ideas" because he "likes things that taste good" and he "wants to share them with you" and anyway the point is that this cask has been "goosed up" with some oak chips that have been soaking in some ginger liqueur and we're damn interested (DAMN interested) in gettin' our hands/mouths on some of that because we bet it's gonna be tasty and we're gonna have to wait until Thursday to find out and you should join us!
Then on Friday we've got more music! This one's another solo set and this time around we've got new-to-us Josephine With a Cause swingin' through the stage for some acoustic punk 'n roll, so come on out and show some support!
Then on Saturday we're "playin' it cool" at home base, but we will be reppin' at two different fests! The "closer to home" option is Pemberfest at Pemberton Farms which we've never been to but Ol' Pembies**** is one of our favorite spots around (we're particularly fond of their beer/cheese/fancy snack selections) so we think this one's gonna be good! And then a little (a lot) farther out we're gonna be at Blackburn Brew Fest in Gloucester! We did this fest last year and it was easily one of the better fests we've poured at (and also it has a killer view) and it's gonna be happening rain or shine, so come on out and say hi!
Then on Sunday in addition to our regularly-scheduled afternoon sushi classes (taught by the delightful Chef Harold) we're startin' the day with Beatles Brunch! A ticket gets you a flight and a waffle (specifically a Liege waffle, the best kind of waffle) and a presentation/Q&A with Beatles expert Erik Taros and it's gonna be a fine way to spend the morning so come on by!

*** We also got to taste some barrel samples in their (actual literal) barrel cellar, but we were the sole benefactors of that experience so there's no point in mentioning it here
**** Nobody calls it that. I don't know why I called it that.
