Pisgah Brewing – Double Bottle Release for Stout Hog Day 2016
(Black Mountain,NC) – Pisgah Brewing Company started their own holiday in 2009 when they decided to add a beer connoisseur’s twist to the nationally recognized holiday surrounding Punxsutawney Phil and his shadow, Groundhog Day. As is the tradition in the winter, beer lovers unite over the darkest and heaviest of craft brews as the temperatures drop, so the Pisgah brewers developed their own reason to celebrate with a glass full of stout, Stout Hog Day. The tradition has evolved over the years, now targeting a proper warm-up to the Big Game by targeting Super Bowl Sunday, which is February 7th of this year. An added twist for the 2016 celebration will be a double bottle release of two sought after Pisgah brews, Chocolatized and Cosmos.
The 8th Annual Stout Hog Day will kick off at 12pm, and will feature a taproom full of stouts and darks with some of Pisgah’s finest darker brews as well as a special collection of local and sought after stouts. 17+ of the Pisgah taps will turn into stouts or darker brews, 7 of which will be Pisgah’s own recipes. Included in the mix of Pisgah darks will be the GABF gold medal winning Chocolatized, as well as the all-grain Belgian-style beast known as Cosmos. In addition to the draft spectacular, Pisgah plans to release the last of the 10-Year Anniversary edition brews with Cosmos and Chocolatized available in 22oz bottles at the taproom only.
A new tradition was born in 2014 as the staff of Pisgah Brewing decided to add a fulfilling twist to the day by starting off with the Brewer’s Breakfast, a full early afternoon of free pancakes for all (while supplies last) prepared by the brewers and staff themselves for their loyal fans. As has been the tradition at year’s past, D.O.G.S. food truck will be on-site preparing breakfast additions for purchase to go along with the free pancakes. Music is always in the recipe at Pisgah Brewing, so the Stout Hog Day house-band Chalwa will bring the roots reggae vibes throughout the afternoon.
