Well hey there! We're fast approachin' our favorite late-winter made-up holiday (and that holiday would be none other than Kafka Day), which also means we're fast approaching the time when you no longer have to hear us shout about Kafka Day every week, but that time is not now, so let's get on with it!
But before we get into that ol' nitty and/or gritty, we best mention that this Thursday is the March installment of our monthly music-themed trivia: Audio Triviality! And this time around the theme is (somewhat perplexingly) zombies! We don't know what the night will have in store for us other than good times, but that's enough for us to go on, so come on out and join us!
And then on Friday we've got the first day (out of two) of Kafka Day! And what is Kafka Day, you ask? Well, simply put, it's an excuse for us to tap a whole bunch of cool/rare/barrel-aged beer and bring in some tasty food vendors and hang out! We started this lil' celebration back in 2019 after our expansion was complete and we wanted to celebrate the fact that we'd made it through some surreal and honestly kind of nightmarish times. At the time we certainly didn't expect this to become a recurring thing, but... well, you get the idea.
Anyway! We're bustin' out the ol' portable draft system and we're tappin' up a whole mess of cool stuff and we're releasing a new beer (and maybe, if we get our shit together, we'll be givin' y'all a sneak peek at a yet-to-be-announced beer that we're releasing later on) and we'll have Sandwich Boy dishin' up delicious fried chicken on Friday and Matilda's will be slingin' pastelitos on Saturday and Liz and Jared will be doing private/guided tastings both days and it's gonna be a whole mess o' fun and you should come hang out!
And then! After Kafka Day winds to a close, we'll find ourselves launched into Mass Beer Week! And we've got a special flight focused on beers that feature ingredients sourced from Massachusetts and we've got (most of) a whole week of (arguably) beer-themed events lined up to celebrate! On Monday we'll be hosting beer-themed trivia and on Wednesday there's a neighborhood bar crawl and on Thursday we've got Simpsons Trivia (this time the theme is Season Three) and on Friday and Saturday we're bringin' back beer and Girl Scout Cookie pairings! Oh and also we're gonna be using/selling the sweet-ass Mass Beer Week glassware that we got from the Brewers Guild and anyway it's gonna be a fun week!
Oh! And! Lastly! We've got a winner and some runners-up for February's coloring contest! It was honestly a really tough choice this month, with a lot of very adequate entries, but we managed to pick our winner nonetheless and here's the cream of the crop!
Jared and Jimbo will tell you some things, sometimes.
