Intuition’s bar will be open from Noon to 9pm. Please note they will be closing down King Street in front of the brewery, so please pre-plan your parking! Multiple vintages of Underdark will be on tap along with several small-batch brews. Limited edition Tees and Snifters will be available for purchase and Funkadelic Food Truck and M Shack will be on site selling their delicious food creations!

Bottle sales will begin promptly at NOON on Saturday, Feb 6th, at the brewery. Bottles are $15 each, CASH ONLY, limit two bottles per person! These bottles WILL sell out quickly, so be sure and get to Intuition early!

Hopollo & Beer Class: Beer 101

How does one decide to try craft beer for the first time?Hopollo

Does Hopollo, the Greek God of Microbreweries reach down with a malty worted finger and touch someone not currently enjoying what craft beer has to offer?

No, though that mental image intrigues me. For instance, what would Hopollo be wearing? … never mind.

Anyway, the typical migrations from non-beer-drinkers and mass-produced-beer-drinkers into the microbrew community begin by:

a) those who have tired of the wine and hard liquor scene;
b) those who have been trying to find palate-excitement with the mass-produced brands for years with no luck;
c) spouses of craft beer drinkers who decide having a shared exciting experience is important;
d) friends of craft beer drinkers who want to be part of the fun;
e) non-drinkers.

It follows then that it falls upon us, the veteran craft beer enthusiasts, to assist these folks in their initial steps.

Folks are hesitant to “jump right in” because:

1) they don’t want to be embarrassed by being identified as a novice;
2) they don’t want to “waste money” on beer with tastes that don’t resonate with their individual palate;
3) they feel they have to be able to describe the beer like the pros do.

Thus, Silver Cow has decided to begin a series of classes to help those wanting to try craft beer develop confidence in selecting the right beer (for them) from a myriad of tap handles.
Beer 101 Jan 23 2016

Beer Class: Beer 101 at Silver Cow. Saturday, January 23. 4:30 – 5:30 pm.

Class is $20 per person but mention discount code Beer101 for $5 off.

What you get:
*Enjoy four (4) different craft beer styles during the class
*Four (4) charcuterie, fromage and fruit pairings – each matched with the beer
*Class sheets and information to keep
*10% off food purchase at Silver Cow
*10% off of your container and growler fill of one of the beers used in the class
*An extra $1 off Happy Hour price for one of the beers tasted during your class
*10% off Silver Cow packaged beer (or wine) to go
*A Silver Cow sticker
*A pint glass to keep

Just tapped at The Annex & The Silver Cow : Stone Enjoy By 7-4-15 Imperial IPA – Stone Brewing Co. $3 All Day!

Just tapped at The Annex & The Silver Cow : Stone Enjoy By 7-4-15 Imperial IPA – Stone Brewing Co. Come in and EnjoyBy_7-04Enjoy All Day, drafts for $3!!

Brewer’s Notes:
9.% ABV. BA Score 98.
You have in your hands a devastatingly independent double IPA. Freshness is a key component of many beers – especially big, hoppy IPAs – but we’ve taken it further, a lot further, with this one. We brewed this IPA specifically NOT to last. We’ve gone to extensive lengths to ensure you get your hands on this beer within an extraordinarily short window, and we’ve sent a very clear message in the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right NOW to enjoy this IPA!

Cigar City Brewing Craft Beer Dinner at Kitchen on San Marco – June 23

Three words …. House Bacon Trio – sweet jeezus there’s whipped bacon involved, nothing but heavenly layers … OK, getting sidetracked here … I recently had the privilege of dining with Ed Stanel (Amber Waves Jax) and his stunning wife Beth at Kitchen on San Marco​ and was blown away with the service, craft beer selections, presentation and taste. If you have not been to KSM this would be a wonderful opportunity to try their crafty cuisine.
