And to start things off on an appropriately anticlimactic note, we ain't got no new beers this week, not even a cask. But! That's because all of the beers we're packaging this week are for cool stuff we're doin' next week (and also cask will return next week), so you'll just have to trust us that it'll be worth the wait!
Oh! And also we're in the process of recovering from our recent, largely-unprecedented* run on Extra Naked, which means (in practical terms) that Extra Naked is gonna be back on tap starting on Thursday and all will be right with the world once again.
But wait, remember when I said earlier that we didn't have any new beers coming out this week? Well it turns out I was wrong! Or maybe lying! Who** knows! Because starting on Friday and lasting thru Sunday we're celebrating Pulpo Day! And if you're not "hip to the haps" on Pulpo Day (which is reasonable, because it's yet another holiday we made up just for the hell of it), it's the release party for our vaunted chocolate orange imperial stout which we release (in cans and on draft) every winter and which is named - you guessed it - El Pulpo! And to celebrate such an auspicious occasion, we're also releasing the barrel-aged version of the same beer (on tap and in bottles) and all weekend long we'll be tappin' up some rare cellar-aged vintages of El Pulpo (some barrel-aged, some not) and also Liz and Jared doin' a Private Tasting Session of different Pulpo vintages on Friday evening (which probably isn't sold out yet? But it's getting close) and we'll have cool food vendors all weekend - namely Lobzter King on Friday and Adrianos Tacos on Saturday and we're fully stocked on chocolate oranges behind the bar and it's gonna be a hell of a time this weekend and we hope you can join us!
And looking forward a bit to next week, we've got some Friendsgiving Fun Times for you next Thursday! We've got our friends from Seabiscuit comin' out and doin' a pie popup (both savory and sweet) and each pie on their menu has a designated beer pairing on our menu because nothing says "friendship" like beer and pies and we're hostin' a Bill Murray trivia night complete with some frankly-ridiculous (even for us) prizes and anyway it's gonna be a blast and you should come out!
