Thanks to everyone who came out for our Oak Aged tasting this past Thursday!  We wanted to help people explore just how much aging can change different styles, even ones that you don’t expect to see aged like IPAs.  Dogfish Head‘s Burton Baton and Founders Curmudgeon were quick to become favorites amongst the bunch.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, May 1st, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring Stillwater Artisanal AlesStillwater is a gypsy brewery – they don’t have a brewery and instead create their recipes and brew them somewhere else, like Westbrook or Thomas Creek.  Their focus is on Belgian style ales, especially Farmhouse ales, so we’ll run through a wide variety of what they’re brewing up.

The all organic Freehouse Brewing from Charleston has been brewing some fantastic beer since they opened last year, and we’re happy to announce that they will be joining us for a tap takeover on May 9th!  Their owner, Arthur, will be joining us from 5-7 PM that evening as we taste a wide selection of core and seasonal releases.  Freehouse has been brewing up hit after hit and this is one event you won’t want to miss!

We just tapped a keg of a very special barrel aged release from Quest this morning – a bourbon barrel aged Smoking Mirror Porter with toasted almonds, toasted coconut, and cocoa nibs.  Smoking Mirror picks up the flavors of the bourbon while becoming extremely smooth due to the cocoa and coconut.  We’ve heard this one referred to as “Allman Joy,” but we think it can be summed up as “delicious.”  Come fill your growlers while this treat lasts!

We received a very small delivery of Dogfish Head‘s 75 Minute IPA this week.  75 Minute is a bottle conditioned blend of their 60 and 90 Minute IPAs with a little bit of maple syrup for a silky smooth mouthfeel.  Bottles of 75 Minute are very limited, so you’ll want to pick yours up quickly before they’re all gone.

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
