For those of you that stopped by the brewery this past weekend, you already know that it was a “stout weekend” for us. That is because it was the only beer we had on draft for both Friday and Saturday. The good thing is that we still had a solid crowd of thirsty neighbors downing pints of stout. We also received a ton of positive praise from those that told us they don’t typically drink stout. We agree. Our stout is fantastic, but we also like a little variety too.
Our main stay beers will start returning to the brewery this weekend. Blonde, Daylight Amber and Big 4 will all make reappearances. Next week, our Alkali Wit will return as well. The Belgian IPA, which is really a seasonal release, will make its return for Sacramento Beer Week (Feb 24 – Mar 3). We are working overtime to restock ourselves and maintain our inventory so we don’t have another “stout weekend” anytime soon.
We are in this situation because we slightly under-planned the turnout for our grand opening. We received more support than we could have ever imagined and we are very grateful. We also didn’t plan for that awesome newspaper article from the Sac Bee (http://www.sacbee.com/2011/12/31/4154111/sacramento-brewers-tap-growing.html). Rumor has it that there was a line out our door and down the parking lot for the better part of three hours. We can’t verify that rumor because we were busy behind the bar, but that feels about right. We posted the few pictures we have of the opening on our website, but we didn’t have an opportunity to take too many. If you have some additional pictures that you don’t mind sharing, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for your patience with us as we get our inventory restocked. We look forward to seeing you at the Tap Room soon.
