Welcome to national Rip Current awareness week. Rip Currents are a serious issue and takes the lives of far too many swimmers each year. For more information on Rip Current Awareness week see http://www.ripcurrents.noaa.gov. In recognition of Rip Current awareness week, we felt it fitting to do our part … which as a brewery means making and drinking beer . This week the tasting room will offer special discounts on pints (look for the orange tap handle!) on Wed/Thurs and are hosting our first big event on Fri/Sat. The tasting room will be closed for the event on Friday and Saturday but will be open again on Sunday.
The Rip Current Brewing Awareness Celebration is coming up on Fri (5-9PM) and two sessions on Sat (12-4PM, 5-9PM). The early Sat session is now sold out, but we are likely to have a limited number of tickets available for sale at the door for $30. The Fri and Sat eve sessions are also expected to sell out before the event, so please don’t wait. Details and ticket purchases can be made at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/382488. On tap, we will be bringing back a couple old favorites: Chocolate Milkstache (Sweet Stout) and Coffee Milkstache at the party plus a rotation of popular brews from the pilot system and a very small amount of the special beer that you’ll be receiving for take home (our first 22oz bottle!) For example, we will be tapping the final pilot batch (5 gallon) kegs of Salute to the End of the World Oatmeal Stout, Coffee Rescue Buoy RIS, Vanilla Storm Imperial Stout plus some newer beers.
We have arranged to have 2 of our favorite food trucks at each event, so you can snack while you enjoy your 5 included beers. Look for Crabcakes 911 and Oscar’s Meat Pie Shack to be serving up their fantastic food items at each session.
Hope to see you this week,
