Debbie and I had a wonderful time at Nate and Brenda’s house celebrating Thanksgiving! I also wanted to give a ‘heads up’ to Tapistry as they gained at least one more person who appreciates their beer. Well, one of their beers, that being the Batch 100 Russian Imperial Stout. Several of my family liked it, especially Adam; he liked it so much that he asked me to get him some more, and more he’ll get.
Today is the last day of November, and it’s the last day of Movember, too. Here’s my last mustache picture for one month’s growing.
Got mine! Did you get yours?
The day after Thanksgiving which means Black Friday, crowds and shopping, at least for some. For me, it means a black IPA, stout, and/or porter. Maybe something like a Bourbon Barrel Aged Steel Wheels from The Livery; a Hail to the Darkness at Arclight; a Peck’s Porter at Tapitry; or an Anger at Greenbush. Whatever drink and where ever you decide to relax, it’s gotta be better than getting up before dawn and dealing with all of the bargain hunters.
Speaking of dark, how about these canned beauties from Burn ‘Em?
Here’s what I’ll like after my forage in to dark beers:
I almost forgot all about this: Don’t forget to pick up your Greenbush advent calendar, if you were one of the lucky ones.
Hope every one has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!
Oops! I forgot to post yesterday, even though I had it all written and ready to go. It’s up right now! Day 701
The day before Thanksgiving entails grocery shopping and spending too much money on a bunch of high-calorie-comfort-foods, and some beer, too. I got a four pack of Brewery Vivant’s Big Red Coq and a four pack of Founders’ Double Trouble, these, along with a growler and a howler of two different Home made beers, should suffice for part of the day tomorrow.
Today, though, there’s the mad dash to the local brew-pubs for some libation to ease the anxiety of preparing for Thanksgiving Day. Greenbush is going to make that a little easier with some barrel-aged brews in their annex, at least according to their Facebook Page. Tapistry is releasing their Batch 100 Russian Imperial Stout today. Gotta get a taste of that! And there’s the goings-on at The Livery that I mention in yesterday’s post with which to finish the day.
Drive, eat and drink carefully…
Before you get ready for Thanksgiving Day, you may want to relax on Wednesday night and listen to some great, live music. The Livery is having two bands playing on this Wednesday Night, which, I’m sure, will go very well with their great beers. More information can be found on their website: LiveryBrew.com.
Speaking of The Livery, It seems that there has been some ownership updates. I’ll let them tell you what’s going on in their own words:
First and foremost, we would like to take the time to share some exciting news! Simon Rusk, our Head Brewer and Operations Manager has now become Part-Owner in The Livery! No fear, Simon will continue to make amazing beers in our brew house, but he may have a little extra hustle in his step! A man of many hats, Simon is sure to help push the boundaries of what The Livery is capable of achieving. Huzzah!!
Simon has making some incredible brews, so this can only be good news. Best wishes to Simon, Leslie and The Livery Crew!
Wednesday, Tapistry is releasing their Batch 100 Russian Imperial Stout, which will be on tap and available in bottles after 4:00 PM. I’ve have tasted this wonderful brew so I would suggest that you get there early and often if you want some.
This is going to be a long week :).
Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday !Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday!
Btw, if you are out and about you might want to consider stopping at Greenbush for a bowl of some really wonderful clam Chowder, and a pint, of course.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I know I’m not.
It was a tough job, but I got it done (even though I will not be doing it again for quite a while); four brew-pubs in one day. I started at Arclight where I had Firelake their American Pale Ale, followed by Arcturus, which is a Red IPA. Both very good, especially the Arcturus. Also, I had a taste of their Belgian Dubbel–Sweet Apple Pie they call Santa’s Sleigh’r; not something that I would normally drink, but it did really taste like apple pie.
Much happier, I am, on this beautiful day!
