Will the folks who received a Three Penny Gift Card for the holiday please step forward:
I have an idea for you. You see, that gift card really can’t be used anywhere else besides Three Penny, it’s just a fact. SO, what you can do is make the most of it. You see, now look over here, for the next few days (today (Wednesday) through the end of the year (technically Saturday since we’re going to be closed on Sunday)) we’re going to be doing what’s called a “fire sale” on some of our bottled beers. Meaning, the prices of these bottles (usually more than double what we’re planning on selling them to you for) are perfect to purchase and enjoy with loved ones or by yourself if you’re not into the whole learning how to share in kindergarten thing. They are as follows:
Allagash Tiarna: an Oak Aged and Blended Sour; this is the smallest of the bottles I’m going to talk about. It’s a gorgeous and funky sour ale that’s deep garnet in color with that beautiful Allagash quality to it.
Anchorage Love Buzz: a Saison with Brettanomyces. That Saison “bite” will be there but the barnyard aspect from the Brett with bring you home and rub your feet.
Blaugies Saison d’Epautre is also one that we’re hoping to find a good mouth home for since it’s a really nice Saison with Spelt, which means that it’s a really high quality Saison but it’ll have this lovely “spicy” aspect (that’s the wrong word but in my years of describing to people what spelt does to a beer the word “spicy” is the only word that I can fully think about) to it.
Le Trou Du Diable Saison du Tracteur is your straight up Saison. Yes, there’s a lot of Saisons here. The reason that we’re hoping to move these bottles is so that we can bring more on board for you to try. That’s what we’re trying to do anyway.
Hopfenstark Saison Station 55 is, yes, a Saison but it is one of my all time favorites because of the earthy aspect that it brings that is more than most of the other ones. I love this beer.
Brasserie Dupont Dry Hopped Saison: we have a couple of these bottles and we’d love to see them in you. Most of what we’re doing isn’t to just get the bottles that we have out of here, it’s to introduce you, at a discounted price, to some of the bottles that you may not know that we have for you. This, for the price, is the belle of the ball.
Lastly, if you didn’t get to try this beer we bought it a long time ago and let it sit around because that’s what the label told us to do and we follow orders to the lower case “j.”
Stone Enjoy After 7.04.16 was purchased last year and kept out of direct sunlight so don’t worry, we took care of it for you. What Stone did a year (plus) ago was fermented their eponymous West Coast IPA with Brettanomyces (our old friend of all of these long long years) and asked people to wait a year before “enjoying” it. That’s what we did. Now you can enjoy it. ENJOY!!!
For those of you that didn’t get a gift card for the holiday:
All of the aforementioned things are also available to you as well. I just thought it pertinent to mention to the folks who have some sense of forced collateral to have a suggestion with which to spend said collateral.
Also available for purchase (in draft form) this week or sooner rather than later:
Four Quarters Funky Monkey: a wheat American Pale Ale with Citra Hops. Probably more wheat that you’d think, which results in a slightly “banana” aspect with the citrus quality from the Citra hops.
Zero Gravity Black Cat Porter: I love it when they let us purchase one of these. ZG’s American Porter is one of the best and will be perfectly paired with the weather.
Founders 2011 Imperial Stout: you’re going to notice the fact that I’m going to flood the lines with the darker stuff because when you’ve asked me when are we ever going to have darker beers on tap and my response was “well, when the time of year is right to have darker beers.” Well, the time is right to have the darker beers on tap. I’ve got a whole host of Stouts and Porters coming up in the next month or so for your pleasure. Let’s just go ahead and consider January (and probably part of February as well) a month that I’m going to have a lot of Stouts in the lineup.
Hill Farmstead Society & Solitude #2: I was just talking about “darker” beers the other day. Well, this is dark in colour but it is also an Imperial Black IPA so it’ll have WAY more perceivable hops to it than the stouts and the porters. This is a master craft in not only black IPAs but also Imperial Black IPAs.
And there’s more and there’s more and there’s more than more.
So, get to drinking the bottles.
Also, World Juniors in on right now. Go US. If anyone wants to lend me their password for the NHL network that’d be much obliged.
