Newsletter: Get Pyro @ CHS Field and the Lager is back on tap

IMG_0632Burning Brothers can not be held responsible for “Grumpy Thom Face”

Baseball and Beer

Tonight the St. Paul Saints play their home opener (at the sparkly new CHS Field) against their North Division rival the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks.  According to the Saint’s website, “The pageantry of opening day will be unlike any in Saints history since their very first home game in 1993.” Sounds like a good time to me. We wanted to give all you baseball fans a heads up that you can now get your Pyro on at CHS Field. Woot!

Here is wishing the Saints a successful inaugural season in their new ballpark!

If you are interested in what their new digs looks like, or how it was constructed, check out the website for all the glorious details.

Taproom Happenings

Remember, all Thursdays at the Burning Brothers taproom are “Thirsty Thursdays”, where we discount pints by $1 and growler fills by $2.  If you have a busy weekend (or maybe that holiday cookout), today is the day to swing by and make sure you have enough beer to get through it!

Food on Fridays (FoF) is happy to be welcoming Rusty Taco back with “tacos, the most important meal of the day”.  As always, any food served in the taproom will be gluten free.  To top off this delicious dinner, ask about the new cupcake flavor freshly baked by Groundswell (available all weekend long).

Tap selection for the weekend includes Pyro, Roasted, OB Honey Infusion, Lime Shandy and… drumroll…. our latest batch of Lager. Growler and grumbler fills on everything!

We’ve got one last round of maintenance on our brewhouse floor this weekend, so unfortunately we will be closed this Sunday, May 24th. After this (well, and maybe Father’s Day), it should be full speed ahead for Sundays. On a side but related note, our sources tell us that Sunday growler sales are on track to begin in St. Paul sometime this July. :-)

An important note for those visiting the brewery over the next few months. The Snelling Ave. bridge crossing Interstate 94 is closed.  This means that access to the brewery from the I94/Snelling ramps is difficult to non-existent, depending on which direction you are coming from.  We recommend using the Cretin/Vandalia exit for the interim.

Newsletter: Chickens, Brawts and Beer… oh my!

Weekend Update

Happy National Dance like a Chicken Day! Imagine, a whole day dedicated to those who like to do the “Chicken Dance”, preferably to the song written by Werner Thomas. While this song is a favorite of weddings and other celebrations, those opportunities are way too infrequent for the chicken dance aficionado. Therefore, today provides the perfect opportunity to exercise your love of the Chicken Dance… guilt free!

What does National Dance like a Chicken Day have to do with beer you ask? Nothing, really. But maybe we’ll help you win that next game of Trivial Pursuit or that argument with that one relative (yeah, we know the one). Enough ramblings though, onto beer!

Remember, all Thursdays at the Burning Brothers taproom are Thirsty Thursdays, where we discount pints by $1 and growler fills by $2.  If you have a busy weekend, today is the day to swing by and make sure you have enough beer to get through it!

Food on Fridays (FoF) is happy to be welcoming Moondog Fancy Meats back with their all natural brawts and hot dogs.  What goes better with a pint of beer than a good brawt?  Not much in this brewer’s book!

Tap selection for the weekend includes Pyro, Roasted, OB Honey Infusion and Lime Shandy. The lager has moved forward in the process from fermentation to carbonating. ETA should be next weekend.

Newsletter: Moms and Crazy Puppies?

Dane1Weekend Update

Dane demonstrates what it’s really like to get your beer goggles on…

Here we are, the Friday before Mother’s Day, and we want to take a moment to put on our serious hats. We would like to extend a big thank you to all of the mothers out there. The ones who work long hours bringing money home for their families, the ones who stay at home working just as many long hours in support of their families, and the ones who somehow manage to do both.  Thank you for all you do, we couldn’t do it without you! In honor of Mother’s Day, and so our staff can be with their families, the BBB taproom will be closed this Sunday.

Now, enough sentiment, onto beer!

Tonight we’ll be pouring samples at the Hanover Spring Wine & Craft Beer Expo from 7-9:30pm. If your in the area, make sure to stop in as they always put on a great event.

Food on Fridays (FoF) is happy to be welcoming Crazy Puppy Gourmet Workshop back to the Burning Brothers taproom with their delicious selection of “Fair Foods”.  Tonight’s special features gluten-free beer battered onion rings (I wonder where they could have gotten gluten-free beer from…), as well as the usual suspects of corndogs, cheese curds, etc.

Speaking of usual suspects, we will have Pyro on tap as well as Roasted, our coffee strong ale. We also have our Orange Blossom Honey Infusion, and of course, our summer beer, the Lime Shandy. Those of you who have been in recently know that we have another batch of Lager in the works, but unfortunately it is taking longer to mature than we had hoped. Give us another week or two and it will be back on tap.

In other news, as the weather has warmed up, and beer season has begun, we are busier brewing than ever!  We are literally sending beer out the doors as fast as we put it into cans. If you want to see a brewery in action (i.e., brewing, canning, dancing, crying, etc.), stopping by the taproom closer to 4pm on a Thursday or Friday will more likely than not give you that opportunity.

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.

SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!! {..ay..ay..ay..} AT THE TAPROOM!!! {..room..room..room..} MONSTER TRUCK ACTION!!! {..shun..shun..shun..}

Get you G(r)eek On

NERD ALERT! This Saturday is Pi Day (i.e. 3/14/15). Come help celebrate a mathematical constant!

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. Taproom is open until 10pm on Saturday.

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. Their gluten-free menu often includes housemade salsa with chips, wrap du jur with smoked sausage and/or sauteed veggie and cottage bacon a la carte.

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.

Saturday… Pi Day… see above!

Sunday we’re open from 2-8pm. We’ve got a nice collection of tabletop games to enjoy while catching up with friends over a beer.
