We have things!  

Let’s start off with the fact that we were featured in a really cool way by a really cool guy doing really cool things: it might be hard for you to get your brain around trail running this time of year since, well, usually it’s assumed that trails to run on can only be had during the summer months. However, those of us (the few, the mentally tapped in some way/shape/form) who have this addiction, we tend to think and/or run on trails year around. It’s kind of like a hobby that turns into a lifestyle, forcing you to find yourself knee deep in snow and freezing, loving every second of it.

 

We were recently visited by the really cool Peter Maksimow (a Colorado folk) and he got to taste (literally) the joys that we have around here. If trail running is something that gets your plasma churning then you should read this, it’s great.

 

That’s the first thing I wanted to talk about.

 

The second thing I wanted to discuss was the fact that it’s “pieces of paper with red hearts on them” day next Tuesday. So, you know, give love and stuff.

 

Directly after that day, which would be Wednesday (February 15th, if you’re still unsure of what day St. Valentine’s Day falls on), we’re doing another one of those things where we are donating 5% of ALL OF OUR SALES (both food and drink) to the Family Center of Washington County. When the old saying of “it takes a village to raise of child” comes in to your brain, think of these folks. They are the village. Please take the time to visit with them HERE and learn a little about them before coming in next Wednesday and helping us donate to them.

 

Some beers that you may enjoy this week include but are not limited to:

 

- Upper Pass Moove On Up Stout: they put everything into this one and it shows. Want coffee in that stout? Sure, why not. Want some lactose (milk)? Got you. Want it to still be drinkable and medium bodied? You’re asking a little too much but it’s got that too.

 

- Lagunitas High Westified: yup, it’s the time of year for stouts. This one is an Imperial Coffee Stout that’s been aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels. Because, why not. It’s exactly what you’d expect from all of those words you just read about it.

 

- Idletyme Joy & Laughter: Firstly, the proceeds from this beer will be donated to help veterans and you can read all about it HERE as part of the Black Ale Project. It’s a great cause for those that have served our country in the greatest way possible. Idletyme took the opportunity to make a crisp golden ale, which will be nice and refreshing and smooth.

 

- We will have a specialty offering coming in from Lawson’s Finest Liquids, who you made of heard of, and it will be good. Oh yes, it will be good.

 

 

And, I’m not much of one to gloat, never have been, so I’ll just leave this HERE and walk away (spoiler alert – It’s not about hockey – there’s more to life than hockey, not much, but there are other things – and if you want to know WHY they are the team that I root for you can blame Ben Watts and Zak Wieluns – since it might be confusing to you why I root for all Philly teams, minus American Football).

 

 

 

See you in the future,
