10 lessons from the real Oktoberfest
1 day ago
this weeks offering is Oskar Blues Whiskey Barrel Dale's Pale Ale. Sounds strange, I know, but it has been well received. Check out the comments here.So there you have it. All you unemployed beer geeks get your butts down there. (And don't forget: It's on the No.3 bus route!)
It is also an exceptionally rare beer, not often seen outside Colorado. Tapping is @ 3pm, 7/24.
Also new and on tap,
Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin', an awesome IPA made with wheat.
Later this week we will tap Green Flash Hophead Red, dry hopped with Amarillo.
Check out our lineup of house made wheat beers, from traditional (Weizenheimer), to hoppy (Edelweisse) to historic (Gose) to experimental (Black Wheat).
On Saturday, July 18th, Clementine Coffee (2200 Manor Rd - owned by the same folks as Thunderbird) will be hosting a beer-tasting in support of our local Open Door Preschool. Your ticket will get you generous beer samples from Austin's best local brewers--including Live Oak, (512) Brewery, Independence Brewing, and Real Ale--and snacks from Eastside Cafe, Galaxy Cafe, and Eastside Pies, and the usual wide selection of Clementine Beers.
Open sampling begins at 3:00 and each attending brewery will hold a brief information session starting at 5:00. So if you're a homebrewer, a hophead, or just a plain ol' beer lover, you'll definitely want to be a part of it.
Later that evening, local blues favorites Bankrupt and the Borrowers and alt-country outfit Frank Smith will be playing live at Clementine. This is Bankrupt's welcome-home show after their long tour across the country, so you know they'll be playing WITH VIGOR.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased on site.
The Open Door was established in 1975 when a family sought to offer a program which integrates developmentally challenged children into a quality child care setting. Their basic tenets hold that segregation of children with disabilities is as harmful to the child and to the society as a whole as is segregation by race, age, color, religion, or sex; that people benefit from interaction with others who are different from themselves; and that through working and playing in a setting in which each person is valued for his or her strengths, children learn to value different ideas, cultures and people.
Rob Todd of Allagash will be in [house] on Monday, July 13th from 6-8pm. Please come by and meet the man behind the beers. FYI, we currently have Allagash White, Victoria and Curieux on tap.Allagash is a Maine brewery that makes some fantastic Belgian-style stuff.
