3. Firestone Walker Sucaba
Honorable Mentions were Green Flash and Alemeda
Thanks to everyone who waited in line, thanks to everyone who came out and made this event a great success. We are already looking towards next year.
That said we have a few events just around the corner. Mainly our Anniversary party scheduled for
next Friday, March 28th at 3pm. Our actual anniversary date is Monday, March 24th. We brewed a beer with Elysian, more specifically we brewed a beer at Elysian Fields with Steve Luke, that we are calling Hopped to the Nines. We joked that instead of calling it a Session Ipa we wanted to call it an All Day Everyday Ipa, we hope that it tastes so good you just want to drink it all day. We made a pretty small batch of this and it will be available at all 3 of our fine establishments. In the spirit of Anniversary’s and celebration in general we went in to the cellar and pulled out some treats both bottles and draft to offer just for the event. What follows is a list of most of what we will be offering:
Bottleworks VI – Farwest Roch 10 clone—750ml
Brouwer’s #7 Fremont Old Bridgerider — 22oz
8 Bottles of 1st addition HOD Matt—12oz
10- bottles of Russian River Deviation—750ml

And we are picking two more for a total of 9 special beers including our 9th anniversary beer.
Not a bad little list if we do say so ourselves, and a great way to kickoff your weekend. We hope you take off work early and come out and join us in turning 9 years old, next Friday, March 28th at 3pm.
We are planning a bottle pour event with Anchorage for April date to be determined, and an event with Black Raven in April as well.
We are really excited about our Thursday, April 10thevent with the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. We will one of a couple spots in the city that the public will be able to drink Scotch that was previously only available to their members. We are putting the list together and will be posting it in the not so distant future. This is a great time to sample some scotch that only we will have.
