At Beer NV, during the month of October, they will be running a promotion called Kegs Against Breast Cancer. Part of the proceeds from the sales of certain kegs will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The keg currently on tap for this promotion is Braupakt, a collaboration between Weihenstephaner and Sierra Nevada. Keep an eye out for future keg announcements.

We have added a couple of new happenings to our EVENTS page! Just in case you wanted to plan ahead…


Quintopia Brewing has released Pale Ale # 3 – a touch lighter color and body than previous versions, and a tweak on the hops, this is still crisp, clean and firmly bitter.

Shoe Tree Brewing has a new beer BlackBerry Saison. Packed with Blackberries giving a fruity nose mixed with notes of clove and banana. This bad boy finishes dry and tart.


We also have an EVENTS page!
