Beer & Yoga - Tuesday Evenings

 

Beer & Yoga - why not combine two great things?

Join us every Tuesday evening from 6-6:45pm in our outdoor beer garden. 
Classes are rain or shine- they will be moved indoors if the weather does not cooperate. 

$8 cash only.

Hosted by Ashley-Brooke McGinty.

Classes will ignite the light from deep within you by vibrantly complimenting you in each and every moment. Through guided pranayama(breath control), meditation and Asana(postures) you will use self exploration and action to set clear intentions on and off the mat. Ashley-Brooke uses a balanced combination of sustained poses with attention to alignment and therapeutic principles to help support beginners learn the basics while more experienced students take postures to a deeper level.

Stick around after for a beer or snack!

Bangers Only

Bangerz Only!

Tuesday, Oct 2nd, All Day

RUM BA PUMPKING

 

It’s a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real! On the first Monday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most rare, special, or just downright delicious beers we can find. We like to call them Bangerz! Every Banger will be tapped at open, but when it’s gone it’s gone. We will have no regrets. Will you?

 

This month’s Banger is:

Rum Ba Pumpking 9.5%

 

Back in 2014 we had the good fortune of finding a cache of rum barrels which we quickly filled with Pumking making what was affectionately called “Rumking.” We were lucky to have found more barrels in 2016 and again in 2017. This batch is at least as delicious as versions past.

Imagine our inimitable Imperial Pumking Ale as the captain on the high seas, flying the Jolly Roger. The ‘King sails for ports unknown in this limited release. Rum Barrel Aged Pumking has been kept like secret treasure in the hollows of the brewery, patiently awaiting discovery. Yo ho ho!

Enjoy Rum Barrel Aged Pumking now, or keep it hidden standing upright in a dark and cool place until you can say ‘anchors aweigh!’

Hoptoberfest

You don’t have to go to Germany to partake in the celebration of the world’s most well-known beer festival. HopCat will bring it to you! We’ll be pouring our favorite local and authentic imported Oktoberfestbiers, and serving our favorite German-inspired food specials. Guests are encouraged to wear their best lederhosen or dirndls. We’ll also be giving away a limited amount of Oktoberfest steins (while supplies last) so get there early!

 Pouring:

Great Lakes Brewing Co. – Oktoberfest – 6.5% - Märzen

Brauerei Aying – Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen – 5.8% - Märzen

Hofbräu München – Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier – 6.3% - Märzen

Weihenstephaner {Germany} – Festbier – 5.8%

 A little history from the official Oktoberfest website - "Why is Oktoberfest called "Oktoberfest" when it actually begins in September?

 The historical background: the first Oktoberfest was held in the year 1810 in honor of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig's marriage to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The festivities began on October 12, 1810 and ended on October 17th with a horse race. In the following years, the celebrations were repeated and, later, the festival was prolonged and moved forward into September.

 By moving the festivities up, it allowed for better weather conditions. Because the September nights were warmer, the visitors were able to enjoy the gardens outside the tents and the stroll over "die Wiesen" or the fields much longer without feeling chilly. Historically, the last Oktoberfest weekend was in October and this tradition continues into present times."
