Hello hop-shoppers, time for another weekly update!
Man, it was another busy weekend here. Sad to say, we only have two IPA left on tap, all our other kegs are gone. We won’t be able to re-stock until our shipment gets in Wednesday, sorry for the inconvenience.
Bad news comes in pairs, as it appears Green Flash will be following suit with Russian River, and pulling out distribution in our area. They are looking to open up markets in East Coast areas, so until they expand, they are pulling distro from Washington. Pretty lame if you ask me.
But the news isn’t all bad. We have managed to obtain a very experimental beer from Dogfish Head. This beer is worth its weight in gold…literally. This Belgian ale, named 24 Carrot, is brewed with Belgian yeast and noble hops has over 10oz of gold per barrel added to the boil. After that, it is aged with carrots for four months, and then bottle conditioned. Just in time for spring, only three kegs made it to Washington. 20 IBU and 12% abv, come get some for an amazing price of $8 a pint!
APRIL FOOLS! Hope no one is too upset with the news. Here’s what we actually have in store for you this week.
Wednesday we invite you to stop by for a tasting event with Odin brewing to raise money for the Plus One Foundation. The name ‘Plus One’ was inspired by the concept of having a significant positive influence on one person at a time that also causes a ‘ripple effect’ of positive effects on the people in that person’s life. The event kicks off at 6:00pm. Seeing as Odin brewing will be there, we have brought in Now Make Me a Sandwich to cater the event (Viking theme anyone?)
We will be having a new food truck Saturday morning. You may have seen them at Seahawk games. This truck features Cuban Barbeque, look for them Saturday around 11am.
Our food truck schedule this week is:
Monday evening – Streetzeria
Tuesday evening – Curb Jumper
Wednesday evening – Now Make Me a Sandwich
Thursday evening – Caravan Crepes
Friday morning – Falafel Salam
Friday evening – Where Ya At Matt
Saturday morning – Snout and Co
Saturday evening – Fish Basket
Sunday morning – Seattle Biscuit Co
Sunday evening – Jemil’s Big Easy
Hope to see you soon!
