Well rested from the holidays?

Well here we are mid-way through the post Thanksgiving week of gluttony.  By now most of you have made it past the food comas and are returning to your normal routines which means it's time to drink more beer!

Luckily Burc continues to put on some great ones.  The Southern Tier Oatmeal Stout has made its way back on and if you're looking for something a little less meaty we currently have the very good Zwick'l Kellerbrier German unfiltered lager.  For those of you who want a beer that packs the wallop of a mini mart malt liquor but actually tastes good try the excellent Red Ales Ten Squared Imperial IPA which is basically a barely wine.

Tomorrow the Seahawks will be featured on Thursday Night Football...yes, we have the NFL Network.  You're welcome.

If you haven't been in the store for a while you'll notice a really cool new table that has a chalk board top.  As we have had to tell a couple of patrons already, no penisis or vaginas please.

Until next time...

Happy Wednesday!

It's hump day, and more importantly those of us who are chained to a desk most of the time have skated out early to start the long Thanksgiving weekend.  I'm down at the Beer Authority sipping the fabulous Deschutes Abyss that just went on tap...come and have a glass soon because it aint gonna last.

Tomorrow Burc will have the store open for a while in the morning so our patrons can come in and get their pre-turkey meal buzz on while watching the first competitive Thanksgiving day Lions game in perhaps 20 years.  Good times.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Beer for the holidays!

We have some incredible beer in the store right now people.  This is my favorite time of year at the store as all of the seasonal beers are being released.  One of my favorites is the Old Stock Cellar Reserve Ale, an insane bourbon aged strong ale that packs a staggering 13.5% punch!  We have many more great new beers in stock so come on down and stock up! 

If you're looking for a place to watch the game and sip on the great beer we have on tap, we recently added some additional seating and you can now order sushi from next door at 10% off and they will be happy to deliver it right to the Beer Authority!

More later...

Fresh Blood at The Beer Authority!

Hey everyone, Brad Adams here...yes, Barry's brother.  Most of you who stumble onto the blog probably already know that Barry and I recently brought in a new partner.  Burc McFarland is now the big man in charge and is running the day to day in the store.  Barry is in a much better place spending time with his son and daughter at home most days and singing kumbaya, although he shows up from time to time in the store.  As for me, I mostly take up space drinking our very excellent beer and getting fatter and fatter...

Anyway, I'm taking a stab at updating the blog since nobody has entered anything new on it since Colin became the first of our patrons to hit the 50 mug mark. 

Under Burc's stewardship we have hosted a few Brewer's nights recently with Wychwood & Blacksheep from England pouring their tasty ales, and Pike's Brewing introducing a great extra hop ale.

Next up on November 2nd we are featuring Alaskan Perseverance Ale which is a Russian Imp Stout, also their Smoked Porter from 2008 and a tasty Winter Ale.  Steve from Alaskan is going to break out some vintage Smoked Porter as well...this is one tasting you want to be here on time for!.  Limited bottles of vintage Smoked Porter for people to sample while supplies last.  6- 8 PM

On November 3rd we are lucky enough to host the kick off party for the 21st Amendment Brewery's collaboration with Ninkasi Brewery featuring "Allies Win the War", an English style strong ale aged over dates and brewed with northwest hops.  Jason from 21st Amendment and Josh from Ninkasi will be representing from 6-8 PM and all 21st Amendment  and Ninkasi products will be 10 % off!!

So...more to come.  I'm determined to keep our blog updated, accurate and relevant.
