2013 Illustration Ale has been released!

2013 Illustration Ale has been released!

Last night, we had a fun gathering of about 50 of our GOOD FRIENDS and talented artists down at the Toonseum.  We were releasing the 2013 edition of our Illustration Ale, the beer we brew in collaboration with them, and a six-pack of local illustrators, each contributing a unique label to adorn bottles of this beer.

Wayno, our long-time label co-conspirator and artist about town, did the curation for us once again.  And what a pack of diverse artists he brought to bear on this project!  Here's a bit more about this year's artists from the Toonseum's website.

As I've said before, I find the process of turning complete control of our labels over to a group of total strangers strangely liberating.  And thankfully, the results always blow me away.  When the artwork starts coming in, I feel like a kid opening presents on Christmas morning... but before anyone else is awake yet.

 

But now you're all awake, and the beer has been released.  So I hope you'll enjoy both the beer and the wonderful label art they carry as much as I do.  If you missed the release festivities last night, fear not.  Bottles with each of the six label designs are in good supply at BOTH our locations.  And like they say, please feel free to collect all six!

The 12 Beers of Christmas

The 12 Beers of Christmas

Woo-hoo!  Our new 32oz Growlers came in earlier than we expected.  That kind of thing NEVER happens around here.  And while we will certainly offer them individually (starting NOW at the Brewery, next weekend at The Shop), I can't help but put something together to celebrate the happy coincidence that they come 12 to a box and we happen to have 12 beers on tap at the brewery.

So from now until Christmas, we'll be offering a 12 Beers of Christmas pack of these awesome little jugs, each filled with one beer from our current lineup.  Pricing it out with the $3 deposit for each jug, the total comes to $122.  But hey, it's the holiday season.  So how about we call it an even $100?

No substitutions please, and this is just for the draft beers at the Brewery location where we have 12 taps.  Here's  the lineup... which may change in the weeks ahead, as some winter brews come on line.  But we'll hold the same price to keep things simple.

Hark on.

GOOD BEER Shopping Guide

Thanks for thinking of us for your Holiday Shopping needs!  (You WERE thinking of us, right?)  Luckily, we've got some sweet new stuff coming around this year that will be sure to thrill the GOOD BEER Fan in your life.  Check these out:

Spring Keg Ride Tickets are on sale! What's more fun than blindly following a bunch of kegs around on your bike with 600 of your closest friends, waiting for them to be tapped? We put tickets on sale early this year, just for you.  Yes, YOU.

The PERFECT Growler? We're really upping our game here with this one: Stainless steel, double-walled, vacuum insulated, and sporting our brand new brewery logo. In hot weather, this thing keeps beer cold forever.(Shipping just after Christmas.)

The Growlette Okay, I admit it. There are times when I can't power through a 64oz Growler in one sitting, and I'm left with a collection of 1/4 full jugs of mostly flat but otherwise delicious beer in my fridge.  Other times, a 32oz single-serving container is EXACTLY what I'm looking for.  So here you have it - the solution to both problems in one shot!  A 32oz "Growlette", a "mini-Growler", a "Half Growler", or maybe even a "Bark".  We haven't completely decided on the name just yet. (Shipping just after Christmas.)

Other non-beer goodies: We've got a whole new shiny new webstore, packed to the rafters with plenty of new T-shirt designs, GOOD BEER Gear, and East End Brewing GiftCards... so you can even buy somebody some BEER from here on your screen.

And hey, if you're more about coming to see us to shop and taste IN-PERSON, we've got some Extended GrowlerHours Thanksgiving week at the Brewery to help with that too. 

Thanks again for making us a part of your holidays.  Hope to see you soon!

Hey lookit... new website!

Hey lookit... new website!

It's been a long time coming, with probably half a dozen runs at it, but now we've finally got it up and running.  Better look and feel, simple and well thought out design, organized to meet our needs (YOUR needs actually), a bunch of of fresh new content, integration with social media, and a killer new webstore with a bunch of new stuff.  Heck, we even tucked our new brewery logo in there!

Who helped do all this?  Jeff Bearer, half of CraftBeerRadio... He did the website.  And the logo, that's the excellent work of the folks at the awesome Commonwealth Press.  I can't praise either of them enough for having the patience to work with a scatterbrain like me, easily distracted by any shiny object tha..... Oh! Would you look at that!!!

So where was I?  Oh, so anyway, have a look around.  There's still a little redding up to do here and there, and a little thin on blog content at the moment.  But fear not.  That won't last long with a blabbermouth like me.

And yes, that's a picture of our new used box truck.

 

 

 

Not our typical week....

Not our typical week....

Last week was a bit of a whirlwind here, and certainly eventful.  And quite photogenic as it turns out.  So I thought I'd share some highlights.
