Firestone Walker Sweater Party!

The Firestone Ugly Sweater Party is this Thursday, December 12th at 6pm.  We have lots and lots of prizes and gifts for you.  At some point in the festivities we will hold a contest for great prizes.  We have some great games planned to add to your Ugly Sweater experience.  What better way to spend your Thursday night, in an ugly sweater drinking delicious malt beverages from Firestone Walker.  Well I could ramble on and on about how awesome this is going to be, why don’t you just show up and see.  We will be pouring: Union Jack, Double Jack, Wookie Jack, Pivo Pilsner, Walker’s Reserve Porter, Velvet Merlin and from our cellar we will be pouring: Abacus ’11, XV Merkin ’11, Dbl DBA ’11 and Hat Trick sour. 

 We will have a great event planned for Wednesday, December 18th with Sound Brewery.  It sounds like the guys at Sound have been working on their barrel project and would like to showcase some of their wares.  We were more than happy to be host them.  There will be Brewery Representatives on hand.  We will be pouring:

Westland Whisky Noel (Westland’s Whiskey barrel)
Ursus Spelaeus Tennessee Whiskey, (Tennessee sippin Whiskey barrel)
MM15 (Quad Pro Quo, Tennessee sippin whiskey barrel)

Monk’s Indiscretion
Mosaic American Pale Ale
Reluctant IPA

Monk’s Indiscretion, Belgian Specialty Ale – 10.0% ABV
Dry hopped, and fermented with an aromatic Belgian yeast strain,
Monk’s Indiscretion has an intense tropical hoppy aroma and flavor,
with balanced bitterness, and is scarily drinkable for such a strong beer.

Mosaic American Pale Ale – 6.4% ABV, 34 IBU
Utilizing one of the newest hops from the Hop Breeding Program, Mosaic
hops give intense fruity, floral and earthy aroma and flavor characteristics
to a crisp, classic Northwest style Pale Ale.

Reluctant IPA, American Style IPA – 6.4% ABV
Clean dry malt balances loads of flavoring hops to create a balanced, light,
highly drinkable American style IPA.

Ursus Spelaeus Belgian Imperial Stout – 10% ABV
Named for a long extinct Russian Cave Bear, Ursus Spelaeus is as deep
and dark as the caves its namesake inhabited. Spelaeus has thick, rich
maltiness with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee, and subtle licorice in the
nose and on the tongue with just enough hops to keep it balanced. The
Belgian yeast strain adds touches of fruit, herbs, and spices.

Entendez Noel, Belgian Pale Quadrupel – 10.6% ABV, 50 IBU
Like most big Belgian holiday beers, Noel is bursting with subtly complex
flavors and fits no particular beer style. Its explosion of sensations comes
from just Belgian Pilsner malt, cane sugar, Motueka hops, Trappist yeast,
water, and fermentation. Drink warm or cold in various glassware shapes
and sizes to discover all its nuances. Entendez should age extremely well
for years to come.

Quad Pro Quo, Belgian Style Dark Strong Ale – 9.5% ABV, 30 IBU.
A rich treat in a classic abbey style, “Quad Pro Quo” is smooth and easy
to drink with a complex aroma of fruit, light chocolate and caramel.

Here is a reminder that we will be closed on both December 24th and 25th as well as January 1st for the holidays.  We hope that this does not inconvenience you.
