I was going to be really funny and create a link to Pinterest (I think that’s what it’s called) because the pun was there to allow you in the information that we’re going to have a pin (a smallish firkin or cask) from Lost Nation NEXT THURSDAY to celebrate the arrival and hang time with BEER ADVOCATE (you may have heard of those guys and gals) as well as some rarities from the basement but I had to create an account with Pinterest and that’s not something I want to do, so you’re just going to have to manually be informed without pun that we’re going to have a PIN FROM LOST NATION NEXT THURSDAY TO CELEBRATE SOME HANG TIME WITH BEER ADVOCATE.
For those of you on that site, please “pin” it. I think that’s how it works, no?
So, yeah, the preeminent beer review site (and magazine) will be in the house, ready to hang and talk to all of you who know their beers. You may have heard of them before; they’re known as Beer Advocate. Well, they’ve become pretty good friends throughout the years and they wanted to come up and be around so we felt it necessary to bring some tasty treats in to share with them and you. Most notably, a Pin of Lost Nation Pilsner, kellerbier style. Also, we may just also have another pin (dueling PINS!) from Upper Pass as well. But I’m not sure which one that’s going to be so let’s keep that between you and me. I’ll also bring some aged offerings from the basement so we’ll have those too.
For the time period leading up to then, you can count on the following:
- Hill Farmstead Florence: they make Saisons very well. This one has wheat regardless of how you say “wheat.”
- Lawson’s Finest Fayston Maple Stout: they make Imperial Stouts with Maple very well, regardless of how you say “maple.”
- Brooklyn 2010 Monster: let’s see how this massive Barley Wine has aged. I’m willing to put a dollar to the donut that there’s a really good chance it’s delicious.
- Hermit Thrush Rye Barrel Rye: which, immediately made me think of THIS for some reason. And, just as the name implies, it’s a sour rye ale that’s been aged in Rye Whiskey barrels.
And so on and so on.
Short and sweet today y’all; I’ll give you the secondary heads up next week about NEXT THURSDAY!!!
