February is upon us! We have some exciting events this month, including a party to celebrate the annual release of the Surgeon, our triple IPA, adjusted hours for the Super Bowl, and a Valentine's Day chocolate pairing. There are a handful of new beers that will be showing up in the tasting room throughout the month, as well as the return of some seasoned favorites.
The Pastrami Pizza is brand new this month! A revitalization of the deli favorite, it embodies all of the classic flavors of a pastrami sandwich. The ingredients include pastrami, pickle, mozzarella, fresh dill, onion, IPA mustard, rye, and a drizzle of Thousand Island dressing. Hearty and delicious, this pizza is even better paired with a roasty, dark beer: Ratched is made with rye and is a great counterpart to this pie.
SUPER BOWL HOURS
We are open Superbowl Sunday from 10:00am - 2:00pm, so come by early to fill up your growlers before the big game!
THE SURGEON RELEASE PARTY
The Surgeon is our triple IPA that is only brewed once a year due to the insane amount of time and care that it takes to create. Coming in at 11.2% ABV, it is triple dry hopped, giving it an amazing aroma that complements it's aggressive hoppiness. We are throwing a party to celebrate the annual appearance of this resiny hop bomb so make sure to stop in on Thursday Feb. 9th at 6:00pm. Growlers/crowlers will be available and we'll have a Specialty Surgeon cask that taps at 6.
VALENTINE'S DAY BEER + CHOCOLATE PAIRING
Get adventurous for Valentine's Day: we'll have a custom tasting flight paired with 4 chocolates that'll be just the right combination of hoppy and sweet. These artisanal chocolates will be made in house by one of our talented chefs and are a perfect mix of indulgent and refined. We'll also have a specialty cask that will celebrate the spirit of the day.
These beers will be getting tapped in the tasting room soon. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter for exact release dates!
