Beer Dinner Alert!

Hey everyone, you may want to run over to http://www.tacomac.com/ to check out the menu for the September 13th Terrapin beer dinner in Duluth. I sent it out to our Chancellor level Brewniversity members yesterday, and it is already almost half full. What I can I say, it's an awesome menu. People love Terrapin. This event's a winner.

But wait, there's more....One lucky winner drawn at random will win an extra special prize package that evening. Each attendee will have their name entered into the drawing as many times as the number of tickets purchased. You pay for four people, your name gets entered four times. Buy a single ticket, your name goes in once. Get it? Gotta be fair. The winner gets two tickets to the Terrapin Hop Harvest party at the brewery on Saturday, Sept. 24th. What? You don't want to drive back from Athens after you've been drinking? No problem. You also get a hotel room for the night as well (The Foundry, it's nice). Afraid of getting a DUI in Athens? You won't, because your prize also features transportation from the hotel to the brewery and back. All you have to do is drive to Athens and have a good time. Can you handle that? I knew you could.

If you were wondering what the Hop Harvest party is all about, I will tell you. They will be harvesting their own hops grown at the brewery (duh). There will be live music, beer everywhere, brewery tours, a cask tent, games and a ton of cool, fun-loving people. There is not only the big tasting area inside the brewery, but a huge outdoor area that is fenced in. You can bring your dog if you want! It's also an afternoon event, so you can be safely tucked into bed at a decant hour and back home early on Sunday.

Did I mention that this party will be the first tasting of the 2011 Terrapin So Fresh And So Green, Green? Yep, you'll want to be there for that I imagine.

That's all I have for you folks. Oh wait: Southern Tier 2XIPA cask @ Perimeter on Wednesday of next week. Heavy Seas Red Sky At Night cask @ Decatur next Friday. Bye!
