Al is turning 40 in a couple of weeks, so to celebrate his official “over the hill” status, he’s throwing a party at The Blue Nile on Saturday, June 28th. Beer will flow. I promise. In fact, Al has provided a preliminary lineup:
4:00 pm Tyranena Dirty Old Man. (Whiskey Barrel Aged Imperial Rye Porter)
4:30 Cask of Rush River Bubblejack IPA.
5:00 Tyranena Devil Over A Barrel Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Oatmeal Porter
5:30 Cask of Bell’s Two Hearted Ale
6:00 Tyranena’s new Brewer’s Gone Wild entry, Scurvy, IPA brewed with orange peel.
6:30 Surly Oak-Aged CynicAle
7:00 One small keg of Surly Two
the 4-6 2-4-1’s will be in effect, but not for the cask pints, which will be reasonably priced (probably $3), and not for the 6:00 tapping, either, which will be 12 oz pours, because it is a small keg.
The old man will be pouring, until 7 after which time AARP will call and tell him that he must take a break and sit on the other side of the bar. None of this is set in stone right now, but it’ll give you a good idea of what might be available that night. Al says that presents aren’t necessary, though I suggest he won’t protest if you give him a nice bottle of hard-to-find craft beer. 🙂
Har, har, har!
Whoop…oooh, my back!
Help…I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!
Ooh. If I were going to be in town that day, I’d send the LifeAlert folks out!
My brother dated a girl who’s grandmother was the original “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” lady.
Al, you get your invitation to AARP yet?
Is the Tyranena tapping party still going on the 27th then?
Good question Trav. Tyranena website says 27th.
Al says Tyranena is wrong. It’s the 28th.
Yup, thats the confirmation I just got from the Tyranena crew.
I said the 27th first, but Rob wants to come out for it, and a Saturday would be easier for that. Come to think of it, I thought, it would be easier for everyone.
Why would you wanna make things easy on Rob?
just the kind of guy I am, Benny Boy…
didn’t get the Rush River firkin,
so it’s just 2 casks , the Two Hearted at 4:30 and the CynicAle at 6:30.
I still may be tapping 7 beers or more, depends on what runs out, and what I pull out of the cooler!
see ya tomorrow!
