OK TO BEER FEST
It doesn’t matter what you want to call it, it will be a great time at Narrows Brewing Saturday, September 20th from 2:00 – 11:00! It will be a day of Joe’s newly tapped and released Oktoberfest Beer, German brats and kraut and soft pretzels. And this is a special fall styled beer. It is inspired by German Marzenbier, a show piece for the bready flavors of Munich and Vienna malts. This year’s batch will have an abv of 5.7% and will have been lagered for 8 weeks by the time we tap it that evening for our release party. During the Middle Ages, Germans may have stored and aged their Marzenbiers in ice caves or cellars packed with ice from the previous winter, but we think the brew house has done just fine! We’ll have the deck open from 6:00 to 11:00 to bring the party outside too. So come on down to Narrows Brewing and celebrate the arrival of fall with an Oktoberfest Beer! There will be no cover charge for the evening. See you then and Prost!
Our other BIG news is the arrival of our new fermenter! This brings us up to 4 in the brew house to help us keep our thirsty patrons happy! Thank you Premier Stainless Steel for another 30bbl shining beauty! This will also allow us to put another beer out on a store shelf near you and our first offering will be our Imperial Red Ale, Channary. This is the first release of our Siren series and is based on mythical sirens of the past. Legend has it that to escape a life of boredom and sobriety, young women jumped into a full moon’s moonbeam and were transformed into sirens. These maidens would cry tears of pearls when they were most happy. There will be 4 Sirens in this series. Look for them through out the year with their own look and story on the label!
September will find us out at Chambers Bay Golf Course for the UW Tacoma Fairway to the US Open. This event is Tuesday, September 9th from 8:00 – 4:00 and will be played on the same course as the US Open being held there next year. This event will help to raise funds for student scholarships. It will be a shotgun start- scramble tournament played under summer USGA rules. We will be pouring our Narrows Brewing beers through out the event.
