BREW CREW NEWS | 21 MAR

 

We’re tapping something big…

HOLD MY CASK AND WATCH THIS!

We’re tapping a special beer on Thursday!  No Label Brewing Company’s “Irish Car Bomb” – an Irish Stout with toasted oak cubes soaked in Jameson Whisky and Bailey’s Irish Creame.

CASK TAPPING WITH MARK AND CHAD
(Like “Beer with Mark and Chad” but this time, we have a sweet cask)
Thursday, March 22nd, 4:00 to 6:00pm

WHAT IS CASK BEER?

Traditional draft beer was stored in wooden casks (now most are stainless steel) and served directly from this vessel where they underwent a final fermentation stage to condition and carbonate.  Cask beer is unfiltered, smoother and less carbonated than keg beer, gravity poured, and served at cellar temperature (around 55 degrees F).  The result is a smooth alternative to force carbonated beers, and allows you to experience an old tradition, and unique flavors not otherwise noticed.  Because cask beer is exposed to air during the tapping, it has a very short shelf life once tapped.

Casks (two common sizes)

  • Firkin: 10.8 Gallons
  • Pin: 5.4 Gallons

FRIDAY PINT NIGHT
Bearded Fox GOAT IPA and Aunt Rose Lager

Buy the beer and grow a beard… or just take a pint glass home.

NEXT FRIDAY – MARCH 30
Don’t forget that next Friday is not only Mark’s birthday, but we’ll be tapping the first series of Houston Daisy Chain Beers.  Pouring ALL DAY LONG!  Get here before they are gone, and come wish Mark a happy “twenty-something” birthday!

Their Catering ROCKS!

We had Backyard cater our school event and they knocked it out of the park!  Not only was the food amazing, but they really made the kids feel special.  Thanks for all you do for the school district Mark!

I am a single mom and I just want to tell you how appreciative I am that you offer Kids Eat Free as well as characters on Wednesdays.  To be able to have an inexpensive meal with my daughter while Harmony the Clown entertains her is the high point of my week.  Thanks again Backyard Grill.
