Hey all. Jen here with all the Greenbush news that’s fit to print–we don’t want you to miss out on ANY of the incredible and/or wacky stuff happening at the brewery and beyond this month.
First things first, we’re hosting a mucho fantastico Viva el Superbowl party this Sunday, February 5 in the taproom. We plan on rocking your world with specials on pints and pitchers of Traktor and Red Bud all day long, plus an all-you-can-eat taco bar starting at 4 p.m. I’m also making key lime bars for my fellow sweet tooths out there. Stop on in the taproom through the rest of today (only) to pre-purchase a plate for $8 or pony up $10 between Friday and Sunday. Trust me, with Joel at the helm in the kitchen, it’ll be more than worth it. Anything else you need to know, check out our Facebook event page.
It seems like every week we’re hearing our beer is popping up in new spots–and we’re pretty darn stoked. In all of our running around between Chicago, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and Grand Rapids last month, we managed to add tap handles at a good number of places, including a second one at the gorgeous Cricket Club in Battle Creek–home of possibly the longest bar in Michigan and an impressive 72 beers on tap.
Later this month, we’re participating in the second annual Harbor Country Chocolate Classic. On Saturday, February 18 we’re going all Willy Wonka with two chocolate beers and a plethora of chocolate fare available in the taproom, including chocolate-drizzled bacon (no chocolate-beer-flavored everlasting gobstoppers, unfortunately). Check out the website to see all the Harbor Country businesses that are participating throughout the month.
The big ‘un, however, the one we’re ALL looking forward to is the Winter Beer Festival in Grand Rapids. 50+ breweries representing with and certainly more than 300 beers, all in one place? I can’t tell you everything, but all you really need to know is that we’re bringing our high-gravity A-game to the big event on February 25 and you will not be able to miss us. Head over to The Mash to take a gander at everyone’s beer lists. Whether or not you’ll be at the big show, keep an eye on our Facebook the Friday before and Saturday night–we’ll be hopping around all over town and would just love to see all your shining faces. There’s a chance that we just might, possibly, maybe have a pre-Winter Beer Fest event in GR. Stay tuned.
We also have some sweet collaborations on the books in February. Cleetus Friedman from City Provisions is coming back to brew a new batch of Terminator X and the crew from Bangers & Lace will be in later this month to collaborate on a beer.
So that’s our mad February. Thank goodness it’s a leap year. We’re going to need that extra day.
