First up isn't exactly an "upcoming event" but it sure as heck is something we're excited about! Some of y'all might recall Summoner, our oh-so-delicious classic-style American Pale Ale that we had on until last weekend. Well as our luck would have it, word of that beer got 'round to Summoner the band and they stopped in to drink a bunch of the beer that bore their namesake! Pretty frickin' rad if we do say so ourselves.
Also on Thursday, we've got us a special event out in the wild! We're givin' a talk about beer (and/or about ourselves) at the Newsfeed Cafe in the Boston Public Library! Tomorrow! And we made a special beer for it too, but you may have tried that one already (though now it might be a bit more obvious why we named it what we did). And there's gonna be food of some kind! I think!
Why is Horatio's birthday January 6?
Because that's when he was born! Or rather, that's the origin date of the original bar napkin sketch that originally became** Horatio! He was born in The Crypt Pub in Savannah, GA as the result of some now-forgotten conversation between Jared and his cousin Brian.
What beers are you releasing?
We've got an awesome draft list full of big beers planned, including the first and only release of the Quadless Leg Monster: a quad aged in apple brandy barrels! We'll also be pouring Joybringer Tripel, El Pulpo Chocolate Orange Imperial Stout, Life Sentence DIPA, and Shelby, a smoked stout, alongside plenty of hoppy and sessionable offerings.
Free cake?! Go on...
I mean, it'd be a pretty sad birthday party without cake! We're scheming on the first of hopefully many needlessly elaborate cakes for the years to come. So come eat some!
Special swag?! Go on...
We've got some Fancy Glassware on the way for all these big fancy beers, plus some other treats and souvenirs for you to enjoy!
Dumb traditions? I like dumb traditions! What kind of dumb traditions do you want to start?
We'll keep that one a mystery*** for now, but you can rest assured that some jerk**** will almost definitely try to start something that involves stupid hats.
Do I need to pay to get into this thing?
Hell naw! As always, our events are free to enjoy, and first come first serve. Just pay for beer/food as you go!
** Though since he didn't really become Horatio until much later, you could make the case that this was more like his conception than his birth, but that's a weird thing to celebrate.
*** We have no frickin' clue.
**** Definitely Jared.
