Coming up this week! We are rolling out our newest rotator beer: Beetle Kill American Brown Ale. 

This balanced American Brown ale is chalked full of tasty chocolate and dark malts, while citrusy american hops brings it back to center in the flavor profile. At 5.9% abv, this beer is very approachable by the novice beer drinker, yet it has complexity in the malts and hop profile that will keep the beer geeks coming back for more. If you liked the porter, and the stout, our next dark incantation is just as tasty, dark and malty, but a little more balanced with the hops.

Hey! We have our new Goldensteins in too! These beautifully made custom glass-blown steins were made by area artist Ona Maguro. We decided rather than buy some mass produced German stein, we would have a local artist make them with their own twist. The result is an exquisite vessel in which to imbibe or quaff your favorite refreshments.

Happenings this week:

Tuesday: "Beer for a Cause"- Livingston Tennis Association
$1 from every pint from 4pm to 8pm goes to the Livingston Tennis Association. Come show your support.

Wednesday: Live Music - Scott Evje. Foot stompin' good music

Thursday: Introducing the "Graffle!" Turn in one or two of your drink tickets with your name and phone number on the back, and you will be entered to win a full glass growler at the end of the night. Get it? Growler + Raffle = Graffle!

Saturday: Live Music - Smoke Stack and the Foothill Fury. You've got to check out this blues musician. He's got so many things going on, he's an octopus. You won't be disappointed.

Btw, did we tell you we're awesome? If not, how about we let Draft magazine and "the Best of Craft Beer" awards in Bend, OR tell you how awesome we are. We went up against Regional and National craft breweries and got a Bronze medal for our Bier' de Gardiner, a Biere de Garde (French Farmhouse) style. Sorry, none left, but we have a great American Brown coming out soon.

Country Roads:
I drove past a one-room schoolhouse this weekend. Can you imagine riding your horse to school a couple miles every morning to a one-room schoolhouse in the winter with Katabatic winds? Talk about rugged, yet refined. Got to love this place!
