We’re using the unseasonably chilly weather as an excuse to break out a very special keg that has aged extremely well and we’re tapping with bittersweet pleasure. Our Finest Regards is a Barleywine from Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, a great gypsy brewery that closed shop last year. Almost none of their beers remains on the market, so this is your chance to try this incredibly nuanced “big” beer (11% ABV) on draught.
Whether you spell it with an “e” or without, we’re celebrating it neat this week as we feature our deep list of artisan whisk(e)ys from across the US and Europe. Inspired by a chapter in spirits author Jeff Cioletti’s new book, The Year of Drinking Adventurously,we’ll be comparing our favorite whiskeys this week and at a special (ticketed – here) tasting with Jeff himself on Thursday (5/12).
The chapters of Jeff’s book break down drinking over a year, and include features on both Irish and Scottish whiskey, which got us wondering, “Who does it best?”
Join Jeff Cioletti for comparison of six Irish and Scotch whiskeys as he talks about his new book! You’ll sample several different styles and learn all about this great spirit from an expert. Tickets are $15 for the tasting, or $45 includes a hardback copy of Jeff’s book (or $35 for a paperback copy), which he will sign for you.
Raise your glass with us and toast the great peaty beverage that is among our favorite distilled liquors.
We’ve decided to change the format of this weekend’s April Sours to feature some of our favorite lambics, geuzes, goses and saisons all weekend long. We’ll be pouring several large-bottle-format beers by the glass, including special limited brews from the Bruery and Jolly Pumpkin. Among the featured beers:
- Way Beer Sour Me Not Caju – a great new sour beer from Brazil
- Slaapmutske Flemish Old Style Kriek (Belgium)
- Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca (Michigan)
- And many other featured Bruery beers and unique Belgians
So join us as we celebrate April Sours!
