Greetings Greenbush lovers! Jen here, your trusty new taproom manager/assistant to the Ambassador. Nearly seven months into existence as a brewery, we’re ringing in the new year by pulling out all the stops including more and more bottling, super website updates, January events and this here blog. Right now, keep an eye out for regular posts on the 1’s and 6’s of every month (1st, 6th, 11th… you get the rest).
This month in the taproom we’re still highlighting our cozy winter beers. We’re rocking two mega beers with Ursus, the Winter Old Ale and Mammoth, a Weizenbock; Apathy, an oatmeal stout here to break you free from your indifference; and Jadis, the Winter White Ale. They’ve all been flying off the tap tower in pints, 6 ouncers and growlers. Oh and did I mention BOTTLES? They’re part of our ever-expanding selection of bottled beers and the taproom is the only place you can get ‘em.
Now… on with show. January 14th through 21st marks 2012 Kalamazoo Beer Week and we’re psyched to be included in so many of the events. Here’s the rundown, which you can also find on our trusty calendar.
