Newsletter: Stuff n’ Things… not to be vague

Happy Thanksgiving

Burning Brothers, bringing turkey and beer back to the gluten-free, just like our founding fathers intended!!

No, it’s not the forgotten holiday (at least not yet anyways). Rather, it’s a time for family, a time for friends, a time for reflection, a time for celebration and a time for gratitude.

Everyone here at Burning Brothers would like to say “Thank you” for supporting us on this crazy adventure and to wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday.

That being said, our taproom hours for Thanksgiving week are as follows:

  • Wednesday, November 26th: 5-8pm
  • Thursday, November 27th: Closed
  • Friday, November 28th: 4-9pm
  • Saturday, November 29th: 2-8pm

Taproom, Tours, Events and the Usual Suspects

Starting November 20th, Thirsty Thursdays will be in effect. That means $1 off pints and $2 off growler fills every Thursday. Yup, it’s a ploy on our part to try add some jazz to Thursday nights.

Despite the cold weather bringing an end to the season for many food trucks, in the taproom Food on Fridays continues with a variety of tables and carts.

Brewhouse tours will now officially happen on the first Saturday of each month at 4pm. First come, first served. Limit of 20. If that doesn’t work with your schedule, you might want to consider the Brews ‘n Bulbs Holiday Craft Brewery Tour.

As always, if you have specific questions, drop us a note via Email, FacebookPosthypnotic SuggestionTwitter or Google+.

Cheers,
Burning Brothers

Rosetta, Moondog, Cranberry

If you have been living under a rock (which some days I really can’t fault you for), you might not have heard that the ESA has landed a robot probe on Comet 67P. What does this have to do with beer? Nothing really, but it’s still pretty cool to think about what it took to make this happen. We have a respect and appreciation for a daunting task!

Tonight in the taproom, we welcome back Moondog Fancy Meats. Come get your fill of delectable gluten-free German style bratwursts and hot dogs and pile them high with all your favorite toppings.

We’ve also decided it’s time for us to start getting into the holiday spirit with the introduction of our Fused Cranberry beer. The bitterness of hops harmonize with the bitterness of the cranberries to which we add just a touch of sweetness to create this seasonal sampling.

This weekend’s tap selection:

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

Cheers!

Summer…Autumn…or something in between?

CaptureWith the arrival of fall, our thoughts are turning to harvest time and the cold winter days that are just around the corner (insert obligatory Game of Thrones reference here). Here at the brewery, we’ve pulled out the recipe book and are cooking up pilot batches of some stouts, winter ales and other holiday goodness.

We are also out and about sampling our brews at various places. One of the showcase beer events of this time of year is the Autumn Brew Review (ABR) which is hosted by the MN Craft Brewers Guild. If you are out at ABR tomorrow, make sure to stop in and tell Dane and the team “mitte me dolor commodo”. ;-)

CaptureIn the taproom, we aren’t quite ready to let go of summer, so this Friday we are again hosting Crazy Puppy Gourmet Workshop. They will be bringing back their gluten-free fair food goodness, including cheese curds, corn dogs, mini-donuts, onion rings, etc.

Finally, this will be the last chance to get your Lime Shandy for 2014. It’s not that we don’t love you Lime Shandy, but it’s time for us to have some space from one another.

This weekend’s taproom selection:

  • Pyro American Pale Ale
  • Fused Lime Shandy
  • Fused Orange Blossom Honey
  • Fused Raspberry
  • Roasted Strong Ale with Coffee

Cheers!
