Geez, I am no where near as good at keeping you up to date with our on-goings as I should be. I gotta start utilizing this News Feed more. Fact is, there's just always so much happening around here- and you should know about it! I'll start off by noting that we're usually a lot better about mentioning what's happening at the Taproom on our Facebook page, so if you're on facebook you should 'friend' us (or 'like' us or 'fan' us or whatever it's being called these days). Facebook.com/threepenny I think, or you can maybe just find us here, or just do a search for "Three Penny Taproom" in Montpelier, VT. Along these lines, we're on Twitter, too. That one is Twitter.com/threepennytap.
As far as happenings here, this coming Sunday (July 11) we're having a 'happening', but not here. It's the second installment of Punk Rock Brunch, in which Scott, Joey, and a rag-tag assortment of other associated hooligans takes over Montpelier's best breakfast/lunch spot (Kisment, of course)- and punk rock the place out to hell. No, it's not a band, it's brunch with grounds in your coffee, the stereo turned up way too loud, and the kitchen staff throwing salt at each other.
Next Sunday (July 18) we're hosting another of our (increasingly imfamous) beer & cheese pairings. This one is called Celebrate the Northern Forest: Craft Beer and Artisan Cheese and will feature specially selected craft beers courtesy of our own Scott Kerner, paired perfectly with six artisan cheeses hand-picked by Central Vermont's own Jeff Roberts (author of The Atlus of American Artisan Cheese). In addition, chef Joey Nagy will be providing some incredible accouterments for your enjoyment. The event runs from 1:00 to 3:00 and costs $45/person. Sign-up and pre-pay in person here at Three Penny- but do so soon, these events always fill-up quick!
In between these two events, this coming Wednesday, July 14 (Bastille Day!) we're pulling out any stops that may have been left in order to bring you an Allagash Bash! We've got 10 different kegs from Allagash Brewing sitting in the basement, ready to go on tap that day. Not only will we be pouring, on draught, Allagash beers that you probably didn't even know they put in kegs, but we're also honored to be hosting Allagash Brewing founder and president (and all-around great guy) Rob Tod! This will be a not-to-be-missed party.
OK, I think that's it- for now. Cheers!
