Sacramento Beer Week is almost upon us. We are sure you all can’t wait and neither can we. This year we are taking a slightly different approach to our Beer Week events. Last year, we focused on events at the taproom and didn’t do too much off-site. This year, we will be releasing or re-releasing various beers for your enjoyment at the tap room, but most of our events are off-site and in support of those that have supported us throughout this past year.
Here is the planned beer releases/re-releases throughout Beer Week.
Fri Feb 22: release of the Knee Deep/T7 Collaboration. Brewmaster Jeremy Warren from Knee Deep will be out at Track 7 helping us launch this beer. We will also be re-releasing the Riot Act Rye Pale Ale as well. Those of you that found us after last April, this beer will be new to you. Here is a brief description of the beer from our archives. http://track7brewing.com/2012/04/09/riot-act-rye-ale-release/
Mon Feb 25: last keg of the Port-Barrel aged Dubbel will be released.
Tues Feb 26: last keg of the Burnt Fog Smoked Porter will be released.
Wed Feb 27: Chocolate Fish Soulman Stout will be released.
Thurs Feb 28: If all goes well with the batch (this one involves too much explanation for here), we will be re-leasing another 1-off beer to finish out beer week right. No hopes up yet and more details to come.
All of our off-site events are either festivals or meet-the-brewer events where you can interact with one of the Track 7 Brewers, including Dan, Geoff and Ryan.
Here is the list of off-site events and their dates / times where avail. If nothing specific for time, assume event starts at 5pm:
