Lots of GOOD BEER news and events to cover! First and foremost, we just revamped the BEERS page on our website to get rid of beers that we haven't brewed in, three or four years?and added a WHOLE BUNCH of the new beers we've been pumping out lately! Educate yourself (see... Back to School!) or view our handy-dandy YEAR IN BEER calendar here for our brewing schedule at a glance!
We'll be debuting a new beer at Big Pour this year (more on that later), a Bourbon Barrel Aged version of our Nunkin spiced ale, and look for a lacto-soured beer with fresh nectarines comine soon! But right now we're excited about how great our Big Hop Harvest Ale tastes this year; it's always a little different depending on those fresh hops, so to celebrate we're throwing a party this Saturday!
Join us for the Crafts & Drafts Record Hop complete with six different vintage vinyl sellers, food & ice cream, crafts with Handmade Arcade, and gig posters! All that plus a free sample of Big Hop Harvest...see you Saturday!
And then because we don't like taking any time off, on Tuesday September 6 we're tapping our special brew created just for Britsburgh, a six day festival of all things British here in Pittsburgh!. Come try our Britsburgh Ale or ask for it on draft around town! We're tapping a cask at 6pm!
It's almost time for Big Pour on September 10, one of our favorite events of the year, to benefit the great folks at Construction Junction. Learn more here!
There's a bunch of other great events happening too; our trivia nights on the first & third Wednesdays are more popular than ever! Join us Sep 7 & 21 and get here early for a seat!
On Saturday, September 10 we're pleased to be part of a fortuitously named album release party by the band Eastend Mile, with a tap takeover at James Street. On Thursday September 15 we're hosting a special Thursday Pub Quiz edition for the ACLU's Constitution Day! Saturday, September 17 we'll be pouring beer as part of the Greater Pittsburgh Literary Council's Search and Sip in the Strip. Sunday, September 25 Beer Belly Yoga is back! Get your tickets now! And we're rounding out the month with another Poetry & Pints on Friday, Sep 30.
And now for a different type of event: Have you thought about hosting a private event, or looking for a private place to have some GOOD BEER with some GOOD FRIENDS or BUSINESS ASSOCIATES? Our Taproom in the strip is closed to the public Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, which means it's OPEN for private events! Email Nordy at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk about setting up a private event in our brand-new Taproom!
We'll close with something to look forward to: we're working with 412 Food Rescue & TRASH homebrewers on a bread beer that should be coming out in the Fall, with all the proceeds going to benefit this great organization that saves unused food and delivers it to people in need. You'll be able to help by doing something you love...buying our beer!
