Happy Thanksgiving! Family, Friends, Football, Food, and don’t forget the Beer. There’s a large number of great events this week. From special tappings including BCBS and Russian River, to new bottle releases from Crooked Stave, Casey and TRVE and so much more.
Don’t forget to check this week’s Beer Hunter’s Report before heading out to get your shopping done. We realize there’s some major releases this week, but please be cool to each other. Some of the things we hear out in the field and the way people treat each other over a bottle of beer is sad. That said, there’s plenty of great people in our community paying it forward every day and we salute you guys (and gals too). The good far outnumber the bad and that’s why we enjoy putting our articles and coverage together for you every week. Thank you for that.
Lastly, there’s a lot of BCBS to go around this year. If you’re in the market, you shouldn’t have too much trouble tracking it down this weekend. We love it too, but don’t forget about the great things coming out from our local brewers. Station 26, Odd13, Comrade and Copper Kettle all have their own big barrel-aged stouts scheduled to release this weekend. Show them your support.
