Fools certainly rush in, so they say, but not us! Our brewers are careful and calculated with their recipes, and our team has a taste for quality. Turns out, so do our customers! That being said, we think you’ll like this week’s beer releases.
First up is “Philosophers and Fools,” a Brut Pale Ale with blueberry and elderflower for delicate floral fruit notes with a hint of dryness on the palate. That one comes out today!
But, of course, THURSty THURSday is always our highlight of the week and we’re bringing back “Ship of Fools,” a cream ale with a light hop profile and full mouthfeel. It’s got a nice pleasant sweetness accompanied by mild floral aromatics, and is one distinct beer. If you didn’t have a chance to try it last year when we first introduced it, now’s your time to hop on board!
Saturday is our Solar Open House! Join us in the tap room from Noon-5pm and learn how easy it is to go solar! Renewable Energy Design (RED Group) will be on site to talk with you about our solar array and options for homeowners to go solar. RED Group is also leading a bicycle solar homes tour in Plaza-Midwood the same day, ending at our tap room!
Sunday is our Sip & Swap bike event with the Recyclery from 11am-4pm. Bring your bike parts (or your bike) and meet other cycling enthusiasts for a part swap and guided ride thanks to Pam Murray, who organizes the popular Plaza Midwood Tuesday Night Ride. We’ll have Brut Beat for some live music and a special infusion of Wake Up Porter with toasted coconut and all proceeds from that beer will benefit Trips for Kids!
Did You Know? The word “fool” comes from the Middle English word “follis,” meaning windbag or an empty-headed person.
