Holding to the schedule of having all of the Tweetups going forward on the first Wednesday of each month, we are very close to the next one at the Celebration Town Tavern for the month of July. One week from today, on Wednesday July 7th starting at (about) 6:00 will be the next event.
The fans and misters will be going strong assuming that the weather will be much like what it has been in recent days. Then again, maybe there will be a nice afternoon shower to take care of some of that humidity for us. On top of the temperature comfort provided, it is always my intent here to give some additional incentive to be there. For those of you who have not yet joined us keep on reading, but for those of you that have been with us in the past, you can just skip down to the list you are looking for!
For the folks attending the Tweetup at 6:00 that evening there will, as always, be some good beer to sample. The entire Beer Club (with its relatively recent additions) and draft list will be available as usual, but there is yet another special opportunity to sample a few beers not typically on either list at CTT. With the awesome folks of The Brew Crew continuing to be on board for the occasions, each person coming to this Tweetup will be given a flight of four beers to sample. After tasting all four, everyone will vote on the beer that they enjoyed the most and more specifically for the beer that they would order on their own if they were to visit again. The winner of this vote will be added to the draft selection at Celebration Town Tavern for the month.
If any of you did not hear what beer won the vote last month and is currently occupying the “Micro of the Month” tap handle, you can check it out here so you know what we will be replacing.
Announcing the beers that will be offered at the Tweetups that will compete for the “Micro of the Month” is always the favorite part of this announcement for me. In June we had the first ever seasonal battle and for this month we are appropriately going with a bit of a red, white, and blue theme.
Without further delay, the four beers and styles this month will be:
- Summit Horizon Red Ale (St. Paul, MN) – American Amber Ale
- Avery White Rascal (Boulder, CO) – Witbier
- Southampton Double White Ale (Southampton, NY) – Witbier
- Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale (Longmont, CO) – American Pale Ale
Some of you might think your eyes are failing you, but the White Rascal is indeed returning for another shot at the title. Where the first three on the list might have a more obvious relationship to the theme, the Dale’s Pale Ale works in a different way. Any of you that know what the can that it comes in looks like will understand that it belongs as well.
Unfortunately, once again I will not be able to make the event this month so I will be anxious to hear from some of you about your impressions of the beers. Be sure to let me know what your thoughts were.
Mark your calendars for July 7th!
