So yeah, we know, the Cubs lost last night and that's a GIANT freaking bummer.
But the good news is it means another Cubs game... tonight!
And still more good news... our Publican Quality Meats Burger Night is tonight from 6-8pm!
So, you can come to the Publican Quality Meats Burger Night tonight from 6-8pm get jacked up on IBW beer and burgers from competing chefs from Giant & Dixie and still be home in time for the 7:40pm game start.
We'll be pouring our Farmhouse Porter, Pazuzu's Pedals, made with delicious black cardamom. No kidding, this porter is perfect for a fall evening and earns every ounce of it's Babylonian's namesake.
We're also pouring our warm fermented lager, King Mob, full of delicious esthers evoking banana & apricot. This brings together two oppositional worlds, the flamboyant Belgian pale ale with the clean, dry finish of a German lager.
Enjoy both of these beers in Publican Quality Meats beer garden while we prep for the game tonight. That game which we will win. Trust me. We have arranged for your future and have secured the Cubs a victory.
In Other News...
Next Tuesday we'll have a new batch of Pareidolia released at Parachute Restaurant. It's the same basic beer as the previous batch - a Buckwheat farmhouse with Asian pears & Amchur added for acidity - but we've increased the amount of pears and Amchur to create a version of Pareidolia that is perfect for the Harvest season. We're all very excited about this batch.
In other Pareidolia news, we will be releasing a very limited amount of bottles of this years batch that have been conditioned on b. clausenii. This will be released to a few bottle shops around town towards the middle of November. Stay tuned for more info on that.
We've also got REDRUM, our barrel aged dark farmhouse aged on cranberries and cherries, that will be released on October 26th at a select number of bottle shops. We'll release more info on that as we get closer to that date.
