Craft Beer News Roundup: The Bruery, New Belgium Brewing, Blind Lady Ale House and Hair of The Dog
The Bruery – Good customer service to the Reserve Society – ” After calculating our batch cost for Burly Gourd (we had incomplete information prior to putting Burly Gourd for sale to you), we determined Burly Gourd is more appropriately a $10 Provisions Series beer rather than $15. We will be refunding $4.57 per bottle to the credit card you used to purchase Burly Gourd, which is the difference between a $15 and a $10 sales price with your discount and appropriate sales tax applied. No action is required on your part, and refunds should be completed within two weeks. We apologize if you would have purchased more Burly Gourd with this reduced sales price. The good news is there will be plenty available at Provisions!”
New Belgium Brewing – On why 2 Below was replaced this winter season: ” We have decided to give our seasonal release beers a two-year run and then rotate on to something new. This gives us more room to play around with the portfolio. We may bring some old favorites back from time to time as well.”
Blind Lady Ale House – “Many of you may have heard… but maybe you have not… um… we have opened a new place! It’s called Tiger!Tiger! Draught Beer & Sandwiches and it’s on El Cajon Boulevard, just a couple doors east of 30th Street. It’s exactly 1.09 miles from door-to-door. We’ve been quietly open for two weeks…” And here is our Facebook page for T!T! and here is the blog for T!T!. Oh, we are affectionately referring to Tiger!Tiger! as T!T! Oh, and we are open today, at 5pm.
Hair of The Dog – From Alan – “After conditioning and sampling I have prices for the release Beers at the Anniversary sale November 12th, from 9 to 12. Doggie Claws is lush and tasty, nice carbonation and a firm bitterness. It will be $5 a bottle, $95 a case. Bourbon Fred from the Wood is a bit of a disappointment because of the carbonation level, which is low, even by my standards. The Beer is still delicious, smooth and rich with a great bourbon flavor. It may self carbonate in the future, or maybe not. It will be $7 a bottle, $140 a case. Adam from the Wood is like no other, and should make you smile, he will be $15 a bottle, limit 24. Hope to see you here – Alan”
