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. 🙂
