The Beer Friends are curious…What was your craft brew of choice for the Big Game? Yes that’s right, the biggest sporting event of the year. And no we’re not talking about the Superbowl. We’re talking about Chris Paul’s 3rd Annual PBA Celebrity Invitational. That’s right, the biggest sports superstars (Chris Paul, Reggie Bush), recording artists (Nelly, Lil’ Wayne) and PBA atheletes (PBA = Professional Bowling Association = You wouldn’t recognize their names if I told you). Seriously though – What’d you drink for it? I think a good Smokey Stout really brings out the bowling ball black flavor. Although, going with a Belgian White Ale, maybe from Allagash, really brings out the 7-10 split. Either way, we enjoyed the big game and hope you did too. Let’s see what we have this week to celebrate your own bowling victory’s – finally breaking 100-points.
Tuesday, February 8th – Boulder Brewery Night @ Rattle n’ Hum, Manhattan:
Boulder Brewery was one of the Beer Friends favorite stops on our Colorado Brewery Tour and this Tuesday they’ll be stopping in our town, at Rattle n’ Hum, with their best selection of craft brews. The list of brews is still hidden to the public but we can only imagine that it will include our favorites Mojo IPA, Sweaty Betty Blonde, Planet Porter and Cold Hop and we can only HOPE that they will bring some Killer Penguin and Never Summer Ale. We also hope they pull the same move they did when we visited the brewery – 4 oz. tasting pours of all 15 of their brews that pour regularly for $13. Let’s quickly do the math in our head on this one… 4 oz. X 15 = 60 oz. That’s roughly 4.5 brews. Will this happen in NYC on Tuesday? Beer Gods, we hope so.
Rattle n’ Hum is located at 14 E 33rd Street between Madison and 5th Avenues.
