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.
