Thursday Night Bites: Perk n' Pickle

It's late summer and weekends are seeming shorter and shorter. So, let's get a head start on the fun with a new season of Thursday Night Bites!

First up, this week we have Perk N Pickle heading over to cook up some of their killer grub. We'll post the menu as soon as we know what they're planning for us.

We'll likely tap a little something fun, as well, so keep an eye out for more announcements.

NOTE: We're a 21-and-over venue, so you'll need to leave the kiddos behind. No outside beverages or coolers allowed. Parking may be limited and is for tap room guests only. All dates and times subject to change.

An Ugly Way to Die (Deth by Cherries / Ugly Truckin' Sandwiches)

Thursday Night Bites Season 2 rolls through the end of January like a truck on the freeway. More specifically, an Ugly Truckin' Sandwiches food truck.

We're going to tap a keg of Revolution Brewing's Deth by Cherries, a barrel-aged Russian Imperial Oatmeal Stout blended with cherry puree that uses Deth's Tar as its base.

Outside, we're welcoming Ugly Truckin' Sandwiches to the cabin for the first time. Don't let their name fool you; these sandwiches look pretty damn tasty. We're looking forward to giving them a try.

Fun starts at 5 p.m., so come in after work and make yourself at home.

The Exorcism of Avery

The Exorcism of Avery

For years, Avery Brewing Company has released the Demons of Ale Series, bottles possessed by big, high ABV beers that are thick, rich, supernatural wonders of the beer world. Sadly, however, Avery has announced the discontinuation of the series, causing us to ponder the meaning of life.

We've decided in order to bid these beers farewell properly, we're going to exorcise our demons by tapping several beers from the series, including:

  • 2015 Samael's
  • 2015 The Beast
  • 2016 The Beast
  • 2015 Mephistopheles
  • 2016 Mephistopheles

These are some huge beers, so you're going to want some food to help maintain your composure.  Thankfully, Best Truckin' BBQ will be out to satisfy your hunger.

The fun starts at 5 p.m., so get out of work and come let us take your mind off the week.

Thursday Night Bites (S1E4): Oskar Blues & Roaming Hog

We skipped a week of Thursday Night Bites, because we were all stuffing ourselves with turkey and mashed potatoes.  But this week, we're back in action....in a BIG WAY.

We're tapping some fanastic Oskar Blues beers to pair with the delicious pork dishes of the Roaming Hog food truck.

The main event is Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy, Oskar's stellar imperial stout that spent eight months chilling out in bourbon barrels.  Our main bud Kevin from Oskar will be out to share in the festivities as well.

Rumor has it something special from the cellar might get tapped as well.  Better swing by and find out for yourself, just in case.

**NOTE: We are a 21-and-over establishment.**

Thursday Night Bites (S1E2): Roaming Hog and Helldorado

Season one, episode two of Thursday Night Flights is already upon us, and it's a doozy. 

We'll be tapping Firestone Walker's Helldorado, a blonde barleywine with a ton of complex character.  Not for the light-hearted!

With it, we'll be featuring our friends at the Roaming Hog food truck!  Eddie and Jon never disappoint with their pork dishes, and this night will be no different. 

Our suggested pairings for Helldorado include the Pork on Naan, as well as the Mac and Cheese Fritters. Both are rich and flavorful enough to hold up to the powerful juju of a barleywine, and Helldorado's high ABV and balance of sweetness and hopiness should help cut through those rich and creamy textures.

Show up after work and get ready to ride the flavor wave. 

**NOTE: We are a 21-and-over establishment.**

Thursday Night Bites, Not Flights (S1E1)

This Thursday, we're kicking off a brand new event series at the tap room.  Each week, we'll feature a special tapping and food truck, often including a suggested pairing.

Season one, episode one (S1E1) features one of our favorite beers, Firestone Walker's Bretta Weisse, a Berliner Weisse aged in 1,700-gallon French Oak horizontal foeders for 8 months.  Expect plenty of tartness with fruity esters and a dry, funky finish.

Mario's Cart will be filling our bellies out back, and we've chosen their ceviche tostada as our suggested pairing.  The tartness of Bretta Weisse should play very nicely with the citrus and seafood flavors from the ceviche.

These evenings will be flightless to keep things moving and conserve table space.

We'll kick off right when you're heading out of work at 5pm, so come in, grab a seat, and settle in for a flavorful ride. 

**NOTE: we're a 21-and-over establishment.**
