First off, to all of our friends observing Hanukkah, Hanukkah sameach! May the light shine bright for you this year. Additionally, hopefully everyone is enjoying this time of year as best you can with those you care the most about.
Did you know today is National Lager Day? Oh, you didn’t, you say? We’ll you’re in luck, we just tapped a fresh keg of ABGB Hell Yes Helles Lager… so if you come in this weekend for a pint or crowler to celebrate, we won’t say anything.
And on the topic of pints, we’ve revamped our seating arrangements inside the store and our outside beer garden is a great place to enjoy this warm spell. We want you to rest assured, though, that we are taking the utmost precautions to make this as safe as possible. The cleaning, sanitizing, and social distancing policies we are putting in place are extremely robust. If that doesn’t work for you, we encourage you to use our online ordering and will happily bring your purchase curbside to you.
Since we went through our canned allotment of Sputnik at the speed of a satellite going around the earth, we decided to do something special just for you. We are going to have a side by side tapping of this years Sputnik and the 2019! Yes, you are indeed special enough for us to hold onto a keg for a whole year. Saturday, we will also be tapping some vintage Saint Arnold Pumpkinator. We all need some special pints after a year like this. Oh the things we lovingly do for you!
Don’t wait till the last minute for those holiday gifts (although we’ll be stocked up for you just in case)!!! There are still plenty of seasonal brews for all your holiday needs and we’ve been bringing in lots of special barrel aged and unique options for the extra special folks in your life. But just like the holidays, they’ll melt away before you know it.
Since Community Brewing was such a hit in November, we’re going to hang onto them for December, too! We’ll have their following favorites: Texas Lager and Citra Slice for $6.99 and 8.5% ABV Mosaic IPA is only $7.99. Snag them here!
