Thanks to everyone who joined us for our pre-Halloween “Ghouls and Ghosts” tasting this past Wednesday!  Our selections were greatly varied and response was generally positive, though a few found the mead a little too sweet for their tastes.  We hope everyone enjoyed trying something different.

We’ve had several people mention that Wednesday evenings are a poor night for them, so we’re going to temporarily move our tastings to Thursdays from 5-7 PM.  Join us this upcoming Thursday, November 7th, for a west coast IPA tasting.  It has been a while since our last IPA tasting and we wanted to take this chance to go through a few classics.

On November 14th, join us from 5-7 PM for Vanberg & DeWulf’s third Coast-to-Coast Toast.  This nationwide tasting event is a celebration of wonderful Belgian ales and the birthday of Vanberg & DeWulf.  If you’re looking for an introduction into Belgian beer or are a seasoned pro, this’ll be an event you won’t want to miss.

This week brought us several fantastic new arrivals, including a few returning labels that have been greatly missed.  Bell’s Stout series has two returning labels, Java and Expedition, as well as two new arrivals with the Cherry and Double Cream.  This is the first time Cherry Stout has been brewed in several years due to bad cherry crops.  We’ve also received Dogfish Head‘s newest ancient ale, Kvasir.  Kvasir is a “tart red winter wheat” in the style of a revived hybrid grog.  Along with Kvasir, this week also marked the return of Midas Touch.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks again,

Carl & Vance
