Our once-a-year release of Sexual Chocolate Russian Imperial Stout happens January 25 & 26. Some big changes to the release this year so read on . . .
FRIDAY JANUARY 25
First and most importantly, we’ve always released the draft version of this beer on Friday, then released the bottle version on Saturday. While we’ll still release the draft at the traditional time of 4pm Friday, we’ve decided to not make you wait for bottles anymore. Starting this year, BOTTLES WILL BE FOR SALE FRIDAY NIGHT. But only at one location . . . Footnote, our café/event space next door to our pub. Sales will begin at 7pm; there will be no bottle limit.
We will have our Annual Bottle Share Party on Friday night 7pm as well, also at Footnote. For those of you who’ve never been, the cost of admission is a bottle (or two or three) of your favorite craft beer. We’ll leave the interpretation of ‘craft beer’ up to you; just know that our staff is still snickering about the guy who showed up with Corona a couple of years ago. We’ll have complimentary snacks there, as well as a band! And not just any band – local favorites Bad Hombres will be playing.
SATURDAY JANUARY 26
The festivities continue Saturday. The pub usually opens at 8am to accommodate bottle sales . . . but now that we own a coffee place next door, they don’t have to! Bottles will be for sale at 8am at Footnote Coffee & Cocktails, 634 W. 4th Street — Sexual Chocolate will also be on draft. And rumor has it Joe The Head Coffee Guy will be re-creating his ultra-popular Sexual Chocolate Affogato. And Chef Shane will be on hand with his Worst Sausage Biscuits That Some Guy On BeerAdvocate Ever Had.
The pub will open usual time Saturday (11am) with plenty of bottles and draft of their own. There will also be several menu specials, to include the return of Chef Shane’s famous Hot Brown Shanewich, as well as (yum) Sexual Chocolate braised pork ribs.
AND . . . the pub will be bringing back an ‘olde’ favorite on draft – Olde Rabbit’s Foot, the collab we with Olde Hickory and Duck Rabbit that we resurrected in 2017, will be on tap.
(we’ll also have the first of our Craft Happiness Project beers on tap – Possible IPA)
The tasting room will open regular hours as well (12pm), and also have draft and bottles available. The weekend culminates Saturday at the tasting room with our Sexual Chocolate Bonfire Celebration, which will include food trucks, a make-your-own-s’mores bar, a special Sexual Chocolate randall, and live music with Boxcar Echoes.
A great weekend planned, to celebrate a great beer. Join us!
