Mystery Beer Nights

As many of you know, we do a lot of beer dinners.  And that can result in some odds and ends of tasty beers.  Some are age worthy enough that I can just archive them and re-release them down the road once they’ve had a chance to fully develop.  Some may not be intended to age, but are unique enough that they warrant inclusion on our Extended Beer List.  Some, of course, are already on our beer list anyway, so they just fall right into inventory.  But it’s not like I have room for every beer made on the list, so I always end up with a small collection of beers that just simply need a home.

That’s where this little idea comes in.  Every time I get a decent collection of these little orphans, I’ll announce a mystery beer night.  You come in, pay $2.50, and get one of these delicious craft beers.  It’s just that nobody knows what it’s going to be until the bartender pulls it out of the cooler.  I promise, they’re all fresh, quality craft beers.  There’s not a loser in the bunch.  And, hey, maybe you find a new favorite.

The first one is this Thursday Night, September 9th.  Come on down.
