We're having our 1st Anniversary Party this weekend (TICKETS!) It will go down in history as the best party in the history of parties. Ever. Here's why:
1) This is the finest collection of beer we've ever assembled. The three barrel-aged sours are tasting amazing: tart, oaky, funky, delicious. Bourbon Barrel-Aged Monsters' Park is a barrel-bomb, and the version with coffee is the best stout we've ever made: super aromatic, ultra flavorful, incredibly complex.
Phalanx--our brand spankin' new 7.5% ABV, 100 IBU IPA--will be debuting, and it is tasting awesome, sporting loads of apricot/peach hop flavor & aroma. Mega Black House is a coffee-drenched beast of an imperial stout. Funky Lomaland is a beautifully funky saison, and the white wine barrel-aged version is on a whole different level of radness.
Monsters' Park with rye barrel-aged coffee is easily the finest display yet of what is possible with barrel-aged coffee beans in beer. Fortunate Islands with grapefruit zest and Black House with toasted coconut & cacoa nibs are tasting room favorites for a reason. Both of the barrel-aged cold press coffees are remarkably tasty: the red wine version is citrusy, peachy, chuggable, and the rye version is a real sipper, with loads of barrel character. The casks are going to be ridiculous. And that's not even everything on the list...
2) We'll be selling these stunning Ritzenhoff crystal glasses that we painstakingly imported from Germany. They are simply the finest beer globes money can buy. 250 available, $12 each, limited quantities at ALL SESSIONS.
3) We'll be selling bags of our coffee beans for the very first time, including freshly roasted Black House Blend & extremely limited quantities of bourbon & red wine barrel-aged beans at ALL SESSIONS!
4) You guys liked the 5oz taster glasses that come with admission so much, that we made these limited-edition, gold foil 13.5oz anniversary glasses. They'll be $8 each; just 144 in existence, so they'll go quick. Available at ALL SESSIONS.
5) The people. Every time we throw a big party, the raddest, most fun, least douchey people in San Diego show up. Come party with the beautiful people.
Alright, I hope that's enough to persuade you. This really will be an epic fiesta, and it'd mean the world to us if you came. Hope to see you July 12th & 13th!
