Prepare to get your stange on! Nick Olson from Artisanal Imports is making the trip up north to celebrate a fantastic German beer, Sünner Kölsch with cool glassware, and a couple of special twists, including the tapping of a super limited ceremonial keg.
Sünner Kölsch is from Cologne (Köln), Germany and is a style born from the city's history. It is a delicate golden ale that is fermented at cooler temperatures like a lager giving it a clean finish with just a subtle fruit aroma from the yeast and a lightly grassy/herbal hop profile. We will be tapping a ceremonial keg of the Kölsch along with a limited release, unfiltered version called Kellerbier.
We will be serving the beer in its traditional glassware called a stange (say schtan-guh) which is a small, narrow, straight sided glass that looks like a test tube. We will be doing traditional table service with some cool serving trays. It is sure to be a great time, so bring a group of friends, enjoy some great beer, a soft pretzel, and enjoy a Hot Sünner Night!
Building off the success of our first couple of rides, we will now be expanding to two rides. One longer road bike ride with a moderate pace around 25-30 miles, and one shorter ride going around Stone Lake with a very casual pace designed for any rider on any type of bike. Of course there will be beer, coffee, root beer, and pretzels afterwards, because, c'mon that's what we are all excited about.
Join our August Good Pours partner, the Sawyer County K-9 Unit for an informational, fun, and entertaining day. Sgt. Nick Al-Moghrabi with K-9 Trace and Deputy Dennis Nelson and K-9 Oscar will be on hand to help raise money and awareness for the K-9 Unit and the positive work they do in our communities. At Noon there will be demonstrations in our parking lot so you can see the dogs in action. Help support them with a tasty beer or of course ask to make any purchase a Good Pour.
Eric will be in the house to unveil a very special beer from 3 Sheeps. Previously only a taproom exclusive, this exotic beer is a Belgian-style saison with mango added, and aged in white wine barrels; we can't wait to try it with you! We will also be pouring a super fresh keg of Waterslides IPA.
There will be all sorts of fun shenanigans going on, and we will even have 3 real live sheep at the party for petting and pictures.
It's time to party! We will be kicking off the start of summer with our grand opening on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Take in some sunshine on our new patio (not open just yet), play some bags or hammerschlagen, try some samples, enter to win prizes, and check out our new summer merch.
As a Washburn County business, we are so excited to be hosting the Washburn County Young Professionals Meet & Greet on Thursday, May 18th from 5:00-7:00 PM.
This is a meet and greet to find out what young (and young-at-heart) professionals want out of a group like this and how it can impact our community.
We are thrilled to see this group pop up in are area and can't wait to be involved! Hope to see you there!
