First and/or foremost, this Thursday marks the release date of our hundredth batch! And rather than going for some high-concept, too-clever-for-our-own-good kind of nonsense (which, if we're being honest, is almost definitely what we would have done if we were better at planning ahead), we piled up a bunch of our favorite ingredients and threw those in! In this case, that means Maine-grown malt from Blue Ox, a heapin' helpin' o' hops from Four Star Farms, and a buncha house-made candi syrup to give that dry finish that we're oh-so-fond of!
Jollybringer // Joybringer Tripel, aged in SPD Triple Sec barrels
Beer of Truth // Strong Ale cellared for six months
Fermento-Tainment! // Weisstronauts-inspired bitter
(plus whatever the hell else we happen to have on draft)
Alex's Ugly Sauce, Fat Boyfriend Bakery, and Top Shelf Cookies!
To keep your noshin' muscles busy while we're waitin' for the main course, Alex from Alex's Ugly Sauce will be tingling your tastebuds with hot sauce flights to celebrate all the folks that have donated to Hot Sauce Nation over the last year!
We've also convinced the wonderful people behind Fat Boyfriend Bakery to make us beer-infused ice cream! We'll be slingin' ice cream sandwiches made to order with Top Shelf Cookies! Exact flavors are TBD, but you know they'll be delicious!
We're puttin' on our version of a Southern BBQ! Sillari's Pizza will be roasting two pigs onsite, served with made-from-scratch BBQ and hot sauce (made from our beer, duh). Sides will include baked beans, garden salad, and street corn. The pig should be ready around 3pm and we'll be slingin' meats until we run out!
The Weisstronauts are one of our favorite local bands! Their music is upbeat and quirky and makes us smile (if you're not familiar with them, they're kinda tough to describe - think surf/psychedelic instrumental rock)... perfect for an end of summer sendoff! We'll even be brewing a special beer to pair with their new album!* They'll be playing two sets starting around 5pm.
