There’s couple of things going on around our neighborhood coming up that you should probably know about.
Firstly, the Green Mountain Film Festival kicks off this Friday (there’s another holiday that day as well but I’m forgetting it – it’s the 17th of March, which is two days after Wes’ Birthday – Happy Birthday Wes!) and it’s an awesome thing. You can learn more about it by clicking the word HERE and you’ll be magically transformed via the internet to the world of the Green Mountain Film Festival.
Secondly, we’re gearing up to do another day of DONATIONS to a local charity. This time we’re going to be donating FIVE PERCENT of ALL DAILY SALES to Voices for Vermont Children. Because we believe that the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way. That may seem inconsiderate to quote that song but, well, it’s true. And the good folks at Voices for Vermont Children are walking the walk. It seems like a good thing to help them walk. You can learn all about them by clicking the word HERE.
Thirdsens, we still have a little bit left over from the Peche Day, so if you didn’t get a chance to hop on in here and try some of the six different varieties of the eponymous Imperial Coffee Stout because it was really cold on Saturday, then you should post-haste yourself down here.
Other hits include but are not limited to:
- Alpine Windows Up: every once in a while we like IPAs from the West Coast, especially when they’re really good and made with Citra and Mosaic hops. Well, this would be the case.
- Otter Creek Free Flow: and then other times we like our IPAs to come from Vermont and taste Vermonty AF (AF = as well, with emphasis). That’s where this one comes in.
- Almanac Sunshine & Opportunity: you’ll notice the words “Oak Aged Wild Saison” on the board but it was impossible to fit “mixed fermentation Saison with house brewer’s yeast, brettanomyces and lactobacillus, aged in Oak Foedres and then dry hopped with Citra.”
- Citizen Cider Brose: it’s like cider, with blueberries. Actually, that’s exactly what it’s like.
And, soon, we will have a pretty remarkable beer on tap you may or may not have heard of yet. De Struise is a fairly well known brewery out of Belgium. They make a beer called Pannepot Reserva, which is a very Strong (10%) beer that’s very Belgian-y in flavour. Also, we’ve had this beer since 2010 so it’s prime for the drinking. Enjoy yourself.
That’s about it for this week. See you next Tuesday!
