We know this could be an inconvenience, and hope that you decide to come on in knowing that we will certain have something that will quench you thirst and fill your stomach.

Cheers The event starts at 6pm this upcoming Wednesday night March 2nd. 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.
FEB 23 3-6PM Happy Hour with Rob Tod, Founder of Allagash Brewery. Come drink White, Curieux, Black, Hugh Malone. Also, (hopefully if it arrives in time) taste both versions of Vrienden (one brewed in CO the other in ME). Each used same ingredients but did their own twists. New Belgium family is also rumored to be in attendance. Good times. See you there.

We will be in attendance with a limited number of spoke cards that will entitle you to a free New Belgium beer here at the after party. After spending the day at Gasworks park and trading your car for a bike, roll on over for Gold Sprints (think head to head, man to man all out sprints on track bikes), a band and drink specials. This video link here gives you and idea…although we will not have the band playing at the same time as the sprints…
