Barrelhouse Backyard BBQ

Barrelhouse Backyard BBQ

Good Beer, Good Food, Good Fun!

Join us for a weekend cookout with Barrelhouse brewing.  We'll be turning our patio into a backyard BBQ with a charcoal grill, backyard games, and of course delicious Barrelhouse beer to wash it all down!  We're setting it up family picnic style, so bring your friends, and meet some new ones!

 

We will be having the following beer from them:

Harvest Ale | American Porter | 7.00%
Our Harvest Ale imparts all of the chocolate and roasted nut flavors of a classic porter, with a Barrelhouse twist…we add fresh vanilla beans, local, organic spices and fresh roasted pumpkins for a roasty, spicy, vanilla porter experience. As the vines covering our hills turn yellow and our days begin to get shorter, this Harvest Ale celebrates the season with spiciness and warmth.

Heidbanger | Red Rye Scotch Ale | 6.40%
Watch oot fer ye Heidbanger - pure dead brilliant aye, right! This malt focused Red Rye Scotch Ale was aged to perfection in rye whiskey barrels to impart big caramel, oak, and whiskey flavors; while remaining dangerously smooth and complex. Damned few an’ they’re a’ died. Sláinte mhath!

Mango IPA | American IPA | 5.2%
We crafted this brew with the hop goodness of an IPA and infused it with mouth-watering mangoes. Tropical and citrus notes from our special blend of Simcoe and Citra hops shine through its unassuming malt character. Trust us, you’re gonna want to grab a pint or two of this limited small batch release. Cheers!

Night Ryder | Imperial Black Rye IPA | 8.6%
Night Ryder breaks down and rebuilds the boundaries between dark malts and brilliant, complex, hoppy IPA aromas that were pioneered here on the West Coast. This Imperial Black Rye IPA imparts huge pine and spicy rye complexity with a subtle malt sweetness. Cheers!

Rosiline | Wild Ale | 6.1%
Local vine-ripened strawberries accompany this Central Coast Wild Ale. Aromas of fresh ripe fruit and blossoming trees balance its light acidity and refreshing finish. Treat your taste buds to something unique with this limited small-batch release. 

Rye IPA | American IPA | 6.5%
What makes our unfiltered Rye IPA memorable is it’s incredibly unique flavor. It delivers citrus, apricot and grapefruit, created from our award winning blend of Sorachi Ace, Centennial and Chinook hops; balanced with a spicy finish only rye can deliver. We brewed long and hard to deliver something special among a sea of mediocre beers.

Snakebite | Fruit Beer | 6.9%
Snake Bite, a delicious mash-up of cider and craft beer. We co-fermented our citrus blonde ale with fresh crisp apple juice from the Pacific Northwest, fermented it dry with Saison yeast, and topped it off with a Cascade dry hop. We promise this beer is like nothing you’ve tried before. Cheers!

Dark Lord Vertical Beer Dinner

Dark Lord Vertical Beer Dinner

Sooooooooo, I've been hoarding some stuff for a while and it's time to bust it out.  In commemoration of the impending election, we're cracking open an 11 year vertical of Three Floyd's Dark Lord, 2004-2014.  Yes, that's right, we're opening up one of likely only a handful left of bottles from the first vintage of this intense, dark, insanely delicious beer.  In addition, we're throwing in a couple of Barrel Aged variants to round out the ridiculousness...just cause.  No, they won't be the super whaley ones but it's still BA Dark Lord so it should be awesome.  

To help out, our buddy "Dr" Bill will be coming by to co-host the event and make sure we all have a good time.

Chef Chuy has put together a pretty amazing food line up for the night worthy of the insanity that is the Dark Lord:

Course 1 - Smoked Mongolian Ahi
Course 2 - Aligator Ribs with Creole BBQ
Course 3 - Lamb Golubtsi
Course 4 - Blackened Eye of Ribeye with Coal Potatoes and Black Radish
Course 5 - Chocolate Macaroons with Espresso and Coconut Ash Ice Cream

As is typical with one of our cellar dinners, we will be sneaking out back afterwards to smoke cigars as we enjoy the last course.  Might as well smoke'em while we got'em....the Dark Lord is coming on election night....

Urge's Monday Night Beer Sale featuring Societe Brewing!

Urge has created probably the greatest beer sale ever imaginable and we hope all of you will come join in on the fun. On this date, we will be doing our sale with one of our all-time favorite's, Societe Brewing. Here is how to play:

To start, this is for bar guests only, so find some sort of space in the area (People on the patio or restaurant are exempt from the game). While the Monday Night game is going, guests will be able to get select beers for $2 off, here is the fun part, those beers are selected randomly by the score of the game. So for instance, if the score is 10-7, then lines 10 and 7 will be $2 off! This will continue throughout the game but only while the game is being played, so during the end of the quarters or halftime the game is halted, however, that night while the score is 0-0 or during these downtime's, all canned beers will be $2 off. So there is a lot of fun to be had! The full list of Societe beer's are as follows:

The Bachelor w/African Queen, The Bachelorette w/Tettnanger, The Dandy, The Pupil, The Apprentice, The Filly, The Heiress and we will have a number of Butcher bottles for sale throughout the night!
