Inside Every Cynical Person is a Disappointed Idealist
Don’t be confused. This is another newsletter from your favorite brewery in Alpine. And in this newsletter you’ll be informed of things you never really gave any thought to unless you have insomnia issues. Or, you may find out something so earth shatteringly fulfilling you’ll cut off the soles of your shoes, sit in a tree and play a flute, who knows. I, for one, am grateful I’m not getting all the government I’m paying for.
Hey, check out our new and improved web site, http://alpinebrewing.com We have made the transition to a more mobile friendly format and added a page so you can see what is on tap in the pub and up for growler fills in the brewery. All the other information is there; the pub menu and hours, the merchandise available, the beers, webcam and more…
On this glorious day, in the New Year 2013, we are releasing for your pleasure, a new beer never before concocted in our laboratory of fermentation. We were asked to brew an anniversary beer for O’Brien’s Pub called 19/10 IPA. It represents the 19 years O’Brien’s has been around and the 10 years Tom and Lindsay Nickel have owned it. It is a 7.4% abv all Columbus hopped “Alpine-style” IPA of marvelous flavor and aroma. Available only in the pub for pints and pitchers and not for growler fills. Look for it on tap at the finer beer establishments around town in the coming week.
It is with a heavy heart I am here to tell you of a delay in the release date of “Exponential Hoppiness.” The release must be pushed back because the cold weather slowed down the activity of the yeast. So, keeping with our mantra of “no beer will be released before it’s time,” we foresee a release sometime in the week of February 12th through the 15th. An exact date and time will not be announced due to the issues of parking, traffic congestion, angry next-door business owners and overcrowding. Please remember there will not be any growlers sold and there will be a 4 bottle limit per person per day, no exceptions. Sorry, it will not be around during Super Bowl Festivities.
Alpine Beer Company has a major theft to report. Due to the cramped conditions around the brewery, we moved a large 1,000 gallon brite beer tank to the property we intend to develop on Tavern Road and Taberna Vista way. Someone stole the tank! I am surprised in that it weighs over 1,500 pounds, crap. If you have any information please contact either the brewery at 619-445-2337 or contact the San Diego County Sheriffs at 858-565-5200.
Here’s to making it easy to be cynical, cheers.
