In-store tasting of One Screw Loose Jams, Jellie & Rubs. We met Chopper and the gang from One Screw Loose several months ago and immediately recognized genius, in spreadable form. They have perfected the art of rubs, jams and all things gelatinous, featuring Jailhouse brewery beer jellies, and all of the delicious flavors that you expect w/ a unique twist. We’ll be pairing some of our local cheeses and charcuterie here in the shop from 5:30-7:30. Spread some delicious love.
We’ll have Randy Dempsey from O’Dempsey’s and Kevin Fox from Heavy Seas in the shop as we celebrate a collaborative cask that these mad scientists brewed a couple of months back. This particular concoction is a Lemongrass IPA, aged on Sycamore that is sure to be delicious. Casks are smaller vessels for beer (~10 gallons) that impart a ‘softer’ carbonation as the beer is naturally fermented in the cask, so growler fills will need to be consumed the day they are poured, but that shouldn’t be a problem as we know that a 1/2 gallon of this sucker will go down like water. We’ll have other kegs from both breweries available for growler fills as well. Join us from 6-8pm as we tap what is sure to be another epic experiment from these boys.
Locals only tap takeover. We’re gonna celebrate this week with some of our favorite offerings from our local breweries. We’ve held a couple of special kegs for a spell (Wild Heaven Ode to Mercy Special Winter, Jailhouse Experimental Saison, etc…) and all 12 taps will be local.
