Hello Beer Week! We are super-stoked about all that is going on around the City during this annual celebration of beer. If you haven’t already, check out the Sacramento Beer Week website at www.sacramentobeerweek.com and the Sacramento Beer Week Mobile app available for iPhones/iPads and Android phones (search beerhapps). Anyhow, here is our list of events for beer week:
Friday, February 24th: Trein Wrak (pronounced Train Wreck) Belgian IPA special release. This beer made a brief appearance at our Grand Opening. Due to the overwhelming response it received, we decided to make it our first special release. The name highlights the Dutch influence within Belgium and we thought it fiting since it is a Belgian IPA. Plus the name “Train Wreck” had already been used back east. Chando’s Tacos will also be on-site serving up tacos from its truck. So come down and get your fill of Belgian IPA while you can. Who know’s when we’ll release it again.
Saturday, February 25th: Sacramento Brewer’s Showcase and Capital Beer Fest. We will be at the Cal Expo representing Track 7 at this marquee set of events. Tickets are already on sale and can be found at www.sacramentobeerweek.com. 20 local breweries at the Showcase and 100 at the Beer Fest. This is an event not to be missed! While the Festivals are going on, the Tap Room will be open and The Pizza Company will be making some of its circular delicacies. Pizza goes great with beer so come down and enjoy both. For those of you at the Festivals, this will make an excellent night cap!
Sunday, Febrary 26th: Sunday Funday Trivia. Starting right when the Tap Room opens at 2:00pm, we will host a game of trivia geared towards beer and Sacto. Stop by and see if you have what it takes to win this battle of wits. The trivia will take about an hour and scoring an additional half-hour. Winner of the event will be rewarded.
Monday, February 27th: Dad’s Tent Fest and a Pint Night with Pangea’s. Track 7 will divide and conquer Land and Curtis Parks. Dad’s Tent Fest will be featuring 14 local breweries, Two Rivers Cider and a pig roast at Dad’s Kitchen. Advanced tickets are $30, $40 at the door. Contact Dad’s Kitchen for more info.

There will be a limited number of pint glasses on hand for the night, so get to T7 early and ensure that you are able to equip your household glassware in nothing but T7 pint glasses.
Thursday, March 1st: Track 7 and Two Rivers Cider at the Tap Room. We will be co-hosting an event with Vince from Two River’s Cider. Since one of us is on the west side and one on the east side of the tracks, come help us debate which of us is on the wrong side. We will have all of our standards on draft, as well as Trein Wrak BIPA, and we will be complementing our selection with the finest cider around.
