Surprisingly I was not aware of this, but it is National Beer Day! Congratulations to you all! Yesterday was also National IPA Day. Or was it International? I can’t remember. As I write this, I am attempting to wade through the mountains of paperwork to finalize my loan from the Small Business Administration. We are also working on closing the lease for the location and will hopefully begin construction soon! I imagine as I get more time, I will make some more changes to the website. If you haven’t done so, follow our Facebook Page. I update that far more frequently between scrambling around.

First Day of Fall

Sam Adams Octoberfest signifies the first day of fall. Happy National Beer Day!
The first sign of fall

Today was what I call the first official day of fall. Yes, I know it is 900 degrees out, but today was the first day that I saw Sam Adams Octoberfest in stores. That means that football is right around the corner, and maybe, just maybe, it won’t be so miserable outside. An excellent way to celebrate National Beer Day would be to pick up a new seasonal beer! Hopefully, I will have the store up and running during the football season, and you can stop in for the latest seasonal offerings. Maybe by the time, the winter beers start rolling out!

Beer Events

I have been woefully behind in updating you on beer events, partly because it has been in the 90s for so long I never want to go outside again. Despite that, one of the most significant beer events in the area is just around the corner. Snallygaster is a gigantic beer fest that I didn’t get to go to last year because it was when I first got my pup. I plan on going this year, and I look forward to seeing some of you there. The All-American Beer Fest is this weekend (August 3), but I will not be able to make it this time. We’ve also got the Fairfax County Brewfest coming up in September. I went last year at Mustang Sally’s, and it was awesome! Well, I think that is about it from me. Time to enjoy National Beer Day!
