Some announcements

First off, we just want to take the time to Thank all of you that came out last night and showed your support for Eugene. He is very appreciative, and we raised a good amount of money to help him out with some of his bills. For those of you that didn’t make it, the kegs that were tapped last night to support him are still on, so come down and help the cause. All the proceeds from each keg goes directly to him.
Hardliver X is just around the corner, on March 3rd, Doors open at 11am. We anticipate that you have been preparing your liver for this event. Our friends at Full Sail just dropped off a jem. We hope to have a majority of the list up by this weekend.
On Wednesday, March 14th at 6pm we will be hosting a very special night with Boundary Bay Brewing and Dry Fly Distillery. These two business’s got together awhile back and decided to age Washington Beer in Washington Whiskey Barrels. We will be pouring two Boundary Bay beers, BB Barrel Aged Cabin Fever and BB Barrel Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout, both of which spent time in Dry Fly Washington Wheat Barrels. Additionally we will have a special cocktail or two that use Dry Fly liquors. There will be representatives from both business’s on hand, feel free to ask them about their products.


We have some closures to announce. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you. This Sunday, January 15th we will be closed for a private party starting at 2pm, we will be open for lunch this Sunday. We will be open regular hours on Monday.
We will also be closed on Sunday, January 22 and Monday, January 23 for employee appreciation. Again sorry in advance for an inconvenience this may cause you.

Also don’t forget, the 10th edition of Hardliver Barleywine Fest is March 3-6th, our annual celebration of Barleywine. We replace all of our taps with a delicious Barleywine. There is usually a line for this one so be prepared. We are working on putting up a partial list in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned.

If you don’t already know this years Hardliver list has been posted over on the site. Check it out…We expect to see you all waiting patiently in line outside on Saturday, March the 12th.
Don’t hold your breath, and please, please don’t pick up the phone and call, keep your eyes glued to this page or our facebook page for information about Pliny the Younger. Some of you wait all year round and we get so many calls about this beer, it’s in the cooler just chillin. We plan on tapping it soon, and with a little twist. In other Russian River news we also just received Sanctification a Belgian Pale with 100% Brettanomyces, 6.25%ABV and Redemption a Blonde Ale, 5.0% ABV . We find them quite delicious.

I know this is a lot of info to take in in one post, Matt Bonney had an idea to brew another beer for Bottleworks 12th Anniversary, a few months back he traveled to down to San Diego to put that idea to kettle with Patrick Rue of The Bruery. On Sunday that beer will be released on draft and in the bottle at Bottleworks. We sampled it yesterday and let me tell you we had good things to say. It is an 8% Wit that has raspberries in it, that spent some time in a barrel leaving it quite tart, and the color is this great orange/auburn color. This beer goes on draft here at 5pm on Sunday night.
