Are you Ready to Rumble!!! New this year it starts when the doors open, at 11am, we are asking the brewers to be here by 5pm at the latest. The formula is simple, each brewery designs a burger centered around beef patty, and brings 3 to 5 special beers, after that the sky is the limit. We have had breweries bring in Voodoo Donuts to be used as the bun. We have some really delicious options that will be available this year.The returning champ is 21st Amendment and the contenders this year are Big Time, Double Mountain, Maui, Green Flash and Snipes. The winner is determined by highest sales.An Evening with 12% featuring Stillwater, Wednesday, May 15th (? – Assumption here..not listed on SBW website or in Brouwer’s post). 12% imports, importers of Evil Twin, Hof ten Dormal to name a few will join us. We will have 8 draft total, 4 from Stillwater, and other offerings from Evil Twin, Hof Ten Dormal and De Dochtor.Everybody’s favorite Sour Fest, Thursday, May 16th, starts when we open the doors at 11am. We replace as many taps as we can with a sour beer for your imbibing pleasure. Here is some of what we will be pouring, there will be more, but we never like to release what we are pouring until it is in our cooler. Again this is not a finalized list, there will be things available that are not here and a few of these might not make it on, but most of them will.
