Time to Party

Time to Party

Everyone has different things they look forward to every year; Christmas, birthdays, reunions wedding anniversaries, the standards. However, we know what's really important...Our Anniversary Party! Important may not quite be the right word for our Anniversary Party but some words that do come to mind are awesome, memorable (what you do remember), glorious, and quite possibly, epic. What can I say, it's a good time.

We will be celebrating our 18th year of brewing with some of our closest brewery friends, 18 years! If we were a person, we'd be old enough to buy nudie magazines, fireworks, vote, and face adult penalties for under age drinking (which we of course, do not condone). OK, as we are 18 now I'll try to be more mature. We really look forward to celebrating these milestones with you, our customers, because we wouldn't be here without you. The beer will be awesome, the specially priced and prepared tapas will be awesome, and you, you will be awesome because you'll be having an awesome time.

Here's what you need to know, tickets are $35 pre-sale (cash preferred & in your best interest) and if there's room left, they'll be $40 day of (cash only). This includes unlimited tastings of 40+ craft beers from over 18 breweries and a kick ass commemorative glass. We will have shirts for sale, some free swag, raffles, and those aforementioned tasty and affordable treats. Oh and lots of revelry. That's included in the price...

World Cup Revelry Rolls On...

So obviously, we are extremely excited about our awesome (and dare I say lovely) boys of the US of A for advancing, and we will be looking forward to another full house for next Tuesday's 1:00 PM game against Belgium! That being said, we will only be taking reservations for parties of 6 or more and tables will be forfeited if your party does not arrive before game time.

Also, now that we are into knockout rounds for World Cup, we will be open and serving breakfast burritos for all the 9am games remaining. It only happens every four years, so don your favorite jersey, cheer for your favorite teams (we know they may change as it progresses...), and use your sick days to enjoy The Beautiful Game. I know we are...

Anywho, I added a handy link to the FIFA schedule. Because we care.

World Cup at the Castle

World Cup Is Coming! World Cup Is Coming!

Soccer fans, the most glorious of world competitions is nigh. If you are like me, it's as if Christmas lasts a whole month. There will be moments of unbridled excitement, stunning athleticism and heart wrenching defeats. Happy or sad, I'm guaranteed to cry at least three times. My favorite thing about World Cup is, although you may not get as emotional as I do, it brings the world together not only for "The Love of the Game," but for players, countries and the world. Even if soccer isn't something everyone follows, this event seems to infect those around it. The elite, the underdogs, and the stories that tug at your heart. All is left on the field by, arguably, the best (and soon to be best) athletes in the world. It can be polarizing, but more importantly it can be incredibly intense as well as inspiring. Ok, enough blathering, here are the deets...

We will be airing as many World Cup games as we can. The games will vary on air times, but basically they are at 9am, 12pm, 1pm, & 3pm. So far we've worked out the following schedule...

Open for all US games throughout the tourney (fingers crossed, some of these will be TBA) regardless of time. Currently the only one scheduled is at 9am 6/16 (*breakfast burritos available). *FYI US games are as follows Mon 6/16 3pm, Sun 6/22 3pm and aforementioned third game. We will be open at 9am Fri 6/13 for the Mexico vs. Cameroon game. *Breakfast Burritos available - but they will be Mexican breakfast burritos - not Cameroonian breakfast burritos.

Additionally, we will be open for every weekend game starting at 9am. Unless otherwise noted (*Mexico v Cameroon, and US v Germany) prior to the knockout rounds, Sat 6/28 - 7/1 no food will be available until 11am. Once knockout rounds start, we will have burritos available for 9am games. Feel free to visit the Lost Bean for morning snacks in the meantime.

Whew, that was taxing. I need an Old Town...
