FoF: Lager & IPA to go with Rusty Taco

It’s already after 3pm on Friday, so I’ll spare you my usual rhetoric and get straight to the point.

Keystone Community Services logoThanks to everyone who came to the events last weekend. It was tiring and exhilarating all at once and we couldn’t have done any of it without you. Big hugs to those of you who brought a non-perishable food donation as we were able to raise over 160 pounds of food for Keystone Community Services. You are all awesome!

Food on Friday (FoF) features our friends from Rusty Taco who will be slinging their taco goodness from 6-8pm.

Brewer’s choice starts off with our Premium Lager (until you kill the keg) and then finishes with our Blackstrap IPA. Also note that our Lime Shandy is back for the summer and pairs nicely with the warmer weather.

Cheers!

Let’s have a party

Has it been a year already?! WOW! Well then. I guess we’d better celebrate.

Come join us on Friday, April 10th, from 4-9pm as we celebrate a year of beer in the Burning Brothers taproom (BTW, this is our Grand Opening party…. oops!). We’ll have beer specials, prizes, beer specials, food, beer specials, fun, beer specials…. well, you get the idea. We’re still putting together the specifics, but we wanted to make sure to get the date on your calendar. Stay tuned for updates!

Other taproom happenings

Food on Friday features our friends from Rusty Taco who are here to satisfy and fulfill all your taco desires. Pairing off against the taco in the brewer’s choice offering is our American IPA. Decidedly hoppy and bitter with a citrus sweetness, this is a crisp and straight-forward session IPA that focuses on the flavors of Centennial and Chinook hops. ABV 4.5% ~ IBU 60 (Sorry, small batch on this one, so no growler fills).

UPDATE: We have tapped out of the American IPA.

Burning Brothers is celebrating Pi Day by offering discounts on our flagship American pale ale. Pyro pints will be $3.14 all day long and we’ll be offering $3.14 off Pyro growler fills. But wait, there’s more! For every pint of Pyro purchased, you’ll be entered in our Pi(e) raffle featuring a variety of handmade sweets featuring Burning Brothers beer (all gluten-free of course; see pic above). Drawings at 3:00pm, 4:30pm, 6:00pm, 7:30pm & 9:00pm.

Other taproom happenings

Thirsty Thursdays are on. Swing on down to the taproom tonight for $1 off pints and $2 off growlers fills. But remember, St Paul liquor laws say no growler fills after 8pm on school nights (i.e. Thursdays) so get here early. Taproom is open until 9pm.

Food on Friday once again showcases Chef T-Bone from Tollefson Family Pork Farm who offers all-natural meat products exclusively through Twin Cities farmers markets.

As always, Friday brings us the latest offering in our brewer’s choice series with debut of our Belgian Strong Ale. Malty and rich with a noticeable heat, this beer asserts itself with a strong yet subtle sour from the Belgian yeast. ABV 7.7% ~ IBU 23 (Sorry, small batch on this one, so no growler fills). Taproom is open until 10pm on Friday.

UPDATE: We sold out of the Belgian Strong Ale on Saturday.

 Weekend Update

Shockingly… it’s about beer

Let’s do this chronologically, for the sake of my OCD.

It’s Thursday, so that means tonight (and every Thursday night) we are doing our Thirsty Thursdays Happy Hour. Come on down to the taproom for $1 off pints and $2 off growler fills all night long. But remember intrepid traveler, St Paul doesn’t allow growler fills after 8pm on Thursdays, so get here early.

On Friday, Rusty Taco is in the house to satisfy all of your taco cravings. Better yet, we are pairing them against our latest creation… the American Lager. (OMG4REALZ!!1!) That’s right folks, we have taken the pillar of American beer and recreated it in gluten-free form. Prepare to be amazed.

Saturday, our beer maestro Dane and his able bodied brewer Andrew will be headed up to Grand Casino Hinckley for the Grand Minnesota Taste-Together featuring musical guests Trampled By Turtles and Communist Daughter. Need I say more?

Not quite ready for the weekend to stop? On Sunday (wait, you guys are open on Sunday??!?) the taproom is open from 2-8pm. Stop in for a pint, relax and gird yourself from the fact that Monday is hiding just around the corner.

FoF: Tollefson & Dry Stout

It’s already after 5pm on Friday, so I’ll spare you the usual rhetoric and get straight to the point. (OMG4REALZ!!1!)

2015-02-13 17.10.03Food on Friday (FoF) is Chef T-Bone from Tollefson Family Pork Farm whose all gluten-free menu includes:

  • Housemade salsa with chips
  • “Adult” Creamy/Spicy Mac n’ Cheese
  • Wrap Du Jur with smoked sausage or sauteed veggie
  • Cottage bacon a la carte

Brewer’s choice is Dane’s Dry Stout. As far as dry stouts are concern, this is one that is not going to make you pucker. With a bit of sweetness to balance the toast characteristics, the hints of coffee and chocolate really shine through. On the backside, the dryness of the malt makes itself known but does not linger. It is an easy drinking, enjoyable way to end…or start your day!  (IBU: 40 ~ ABV: 4.1%)

This weekend’s tap selection:

  • Pyro American Pale Ale
  • Roasted Coffee Ale
  • Fused Cranberry
  • Fused Orange Blossom Honey
  • Dane’s Dry Stout (Brewer’s Choice)

Cheers!

FoF: Moondog & Black Pepper Porter

IMG_1137Meanwhile on the beer side, we continue our Friday tradition of Brewer’s Choice. This week we are featuring Dennis’s Black Pepper Porter. This beer starts with the aromas of chocolate and black currant and follows up with toast and cherry flavors along with a distinct black peppercorn finish. IBU: 27 ~ ABV: 3.5%

This weekend’s tap selection:

  • Pyro American Pale Ale
  • Roasted Coffee Ale
  • Fused Cranberry
  • Fused Orange Blossom Honey
