This year we are doing something a bit different for New Years Eve. Rather than participate in all of the late night shenanigans, we have decided to start our day early at 10:00am instead. So, the Saturday of the 31st, we will have brunch catered in from Town & Gown Bistro. And, to go with this fine food offering, we are also going to tap some pretty awesome brews from Sierra Nevada. The brunch will be buffet style and the event is going to be ticketed. What that means is that we have limited space and we will be open early only for those who have tickets. From 10:00am through 2:00pm we will only be open for those who buy tickets for the event. The ticket will include the brunch as well as some beers from Sierra Nevada. Outside of the included beers, each person will also receive a Sierra Nevada Glass and the chance to win some signs and flags from Sierra. If you would like more beer than what is included with your ticket, you are more than welcome to purchase more from the servers and bartenders who will be working that day. Now lets move on to the details:
Sierra Tap List:
Nooner Pilsner - Pint: $5, 4oz: $2

With each ticket, you will get the catered buffet from Town & Gown as well as a 4oz of each of the barrel aged beers and one pint of your choice from the 3 new IPAs. So, you will get 4oz of both BA Narwhal and BA Biere De Garde plus your choice of one pint of the following: Brewers Select IPA, Harvest Single Hop IPA, or Newly Developed Hop IPA. With each ticket, you will also receive a glass from Sierra Nevada and a raffle ticket for the 3 large flags and signs we have from Sierra Nevada. You can purchase these tickets by coming into The Pint and asking for one. We will take your name down and the number of tickets you would like when you purchase them in store. Just so you know, if you end up being unable to attend, the tickets are not refundable but are transferable. If you would like to transfer the tickets to someone else, the original purchaser must come in and let us know who will be taking the tickets instead. That also means that you may purchase these for someone else outright as well. We are limiting this to 50 spots and is exclusive for those who have previously purchased those spots from 10:00am through 2:00pm on the 31st. These spots are available for sale now.
This Saturday, we are having an event featuring Dogfish Head's World Wide Stout. Boasting a healthy 15%-20% alcohol, this imperial stout does not disappoint. With notes reminiscent a fine cognac, the roasted characteristics blend with the vanilla and dark fruit flavors for a delicious experience. In addition to World Wide Stout, we will also have 120 Minute on draft. But, without further ado, here is your tap list:
Flesh and Blood IPA brewed with lemon flesh and blood orange juice
Namaste Belgian White Ale brewed with orange slices, lemongrass and coriander
Seaquench Ale Sour Ale brewed with lime peel, black lime and sea salt
120 Minuter Imperial IPA
World Wide Stout Imperial Stout
Tapping is at 3pm on Saturday.
To start this off, we want to let you all know that we now have 50 new mugs for sale for the mug deal group. With that being said, get them while they last. Same price. We don't like change.
We want to also inform you of our closings this week. From Thursday through Sunday, we will be closed. We don't want to work this weekend because the lazy, incompetent owner is leaving town. So, the rest of us decided, we want to spend time with our families. Thus, we are closed for a few days so we can eat too many carbs, have endorphins kick in, pass out, then proceed to drink because we don't want to talk about the election with our grandparents no matter who they voted for. Stock up for this weekend on your favorite beer this week because while we haven't run out of beer, you can't have any this weekend. Monday we will resume normal hours. Just to recap, Thursday the 24th through Sunday the 27th, we will be closed. No matter how hard you pull on the door, no one will let you in. If you manage to get in, ADT is gonna call the cops. Ain't nobody want that either.
Because of the closure, we will be moving our #MugClub day this week from Thursday to Wednesday. And, for shits and giggles, dollar off pint day will be Wednesday as well. Which means, 3 Floyds beers get tapped Wednesday this week. Yup, its like Thursday on Wednesday. Fuck the rules.
One final grand recap:
New Mugs on sale now!
Closed Thursday the 24th through Sunday the 27th because Thanksgiving
Thursday deals on Wednesday.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend. Eat, drink, don't talk politics, and vote craft beer for president...it's terrific. I know it's terrific. All my friends know it's terrific.
This Friday we will be having our regularly scheduled pre-Halloween event. This is the time of the year that we finally put some of those delicious Pumpkin Ales on tap for you to sample and enjoy. The best part about this time of year is all of the Pumpkin Ale Milkshakes with Salted Caramel Ice Cream from Silver Dipper. Yes, there isn't much better than a Schlafly Pumpkin Ale, Warlock Pumpkin Stout, or Ace Pumpkin Cider blended into the creamy decadence of a delicious shake. Also, we are going to be tapping some other beers besides the seasonal fall brews. But, without further ado, here is your tap list:

The Germans may not get everything right, but when they do its a big deal! Oktoberfest, the time honored tradition of drinking a bunch of flavorful lager in oversized mugs while pretending to sing German drinking songs. Okay, I might have embellished that a bit. In order to pay homage to this exciting and historic practice, we have gotten our very own mugs with Pint logos on them and we have a nice lineup of Oktoberfest beers for this coming week. But we'll get to that in a minute.
With the introduction of the new Pint logo mugs, we are going to be starting a mug club program. All you have to do is buy a mug and that makes you a member. We take down your name and email address and put you in our database so that all you need to do is remember your name or show us an id in order to redeem your mug club benefits. The mug you buy is yours to keep and never needs to come back into The Pint. We have extra mugs on hand that we will keep clean and ready for you to enjoy a beer out of. The special size and pricing will only be available on Mug Club day.
Every Thursday will be mug club day which means we will be doing mug fills every Thursday. We will pick or tap at least 5 beers you can get mug fills on for $7-$9. There will be a limited number of these memberships. We are starting with only 50. That means there will only be 50 mugs for sale. We will probably be expanding the numbers on this in the future, but we want to make sure we have enough glassware on hand for those who sign up in the beginning.
Oktoberfest Tap List
Sun King Oktoberfest
Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest
Tapping is at 3pm on Wednesday and for those of you that purchase a mug, we will be running the mug club special while we have the beers on or through Saturday, whichever comes first. We look forward to seeing you this coming week to enjoy the time honored tradition of Oktoberfest.
