Big Bad Beer and Holiday Hours
There are some heavy hitters coming up to the plate along with some new beers to announce. And you want to know what our hours are going to be over the holidays, don’t you? Haters, please be patient.
I want to ask those of you who find fault with this email newsletter, the bad jokes and the perceived voracity, to please find some patience. I plan on giving you plenty more reasons to hate as the years roll on.
On Friday, December 6, we are releasing two two double double IPAs IPAs. Both “Bad Boy” and “Keene Idea” will be offered to the thirsty. “Bad Boy” will be available on draft and Growler Fills. “Keene Idea” will only be on draft and No Growler Fills.
“Hoppy Birthday,” the most Celebrated Beer in the World, will make its most welcome return on Tuesday, December 10th. This beer is our dry-hopped Pale Ale or Session IPA and is merely 5.25% abv.
For the first time ever, we brewed a Milk Stout. “Elsie” was brewed with cocoa nibs and uses lactose to add some sweetness and body. It will run in the 5.5% abv range and will be ready in two weeks, just in time for our cold spell.
We brewed a new beer in order to showcase some new hops. And, because we are animal lovers, “Pub Cat” will be ready in three weeks. “Pub Cat” is a 5% abv, dry-hopped Extra Pale Ale. We used Azacca, Polaris and Experimental Hop 05256 in creating this brew. I’m very encouraged this will be an exceptional beer because the hops are so awesome.
As they say “Timing is everything.” We will use the opportunity of the timing of Christmas and New Years to give our awesome staff some family time off. We will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
The pub is up to more specials during the week and has added some new menu items. There is “Taco Tuesday,” “Wing Wednesday,” “Prime Rib Thursdays,” and a unique special for Friday dinner and Saturday if it lasts. Poutine is available on Sunday mornings but is not on the menu.
I don’t always dislike children. But when I do, it’s usually because their parents aren’t doing their job.
Everyone have a wonderful Christmas and New Year from us at Alpine Beer Company. Be Safe.
