We’re celebrating Short’s 8th Anniversary on Saturday, April 28th! The party kicks off at 3 p.m., but we’ll start selling Aww Jeah! (Double Huma) at 1 p.m. At this time, we have not set a case limit for Aww Jeah, although we may implement a limit (2 or 3 cases), in order to make sure that most people who want it are able to get some.
Unbelievable Beer List
We’re featuring 20 draft beers, 2 firkin beers (Anniversary Ale and Aww Jeah), and several other products in bottles. The complete list is on the promotional poster here, but draft highlights include: Mmmkay (an insanely delicious hoppy lager made with the final runnings of AwwJeah), Whiskey Happy Jack, ’09 Liberator, Batch 666 Wizard, Bourbon Aphasia, Bourbon Stellar Ale, and 2009 Mystery Stout. Other draft beers include Adia’s Ale, Freedom of ’78, Sustenance, Cinnamon Dopplebock, Goodnight Bodacious, Nitro ESB, Autumn Ale, Magician, and Locals Light. We’re also releasing a unique batch of Huma Lupa Licious in bottles that we’re calling Huma X. It is a bottle conditioned Huma Lupa Licious that we made while conducting testing for Aww Jeah!
As always, we’ve booked a solid lineup of artists. This year, we’re introducing first time Anniversary Party musicians the Adam LeBeaux Band and the Moxie Strings (f/k/a String Cheese). As is our tradition, we’ve asked Reggie and the After Party to get their band back together to close down our Anniversary Party with an extended set of funk, rock, rhythm, and blues.
State of the Brewery
As so much good stuff has happened over the past year, we’re very curious to hear what Joe is going to say during his Annual State of the Brewery Address. We’re also wondering which son or sons will be joining him onstage? The State of the Brewery Address will be at 7:30 p.m.
