Just an update to keep our loyal surfers in the know

Third and Final Nagging…

A reminder about our new times and days for selling kegs and cornies out the door. Starting September 4th, we will be limiting the sale of these items so they don’t interfere with providing our golden (and red, and black, and amber) ambrosia to our other good-natured, beer-fearing folk. The new times:

  • Tuesday 4-6pm
  • Friday 4-6pm
  • Saturday 10-noon

We also are limiting the times that we will fill cornies. Starting on the 4th, we will no longer fill cornies between the hours of 11:30 and 2pm or between 5-7pm on any day. Please come in to have them filled before or after those times.

Pirate’s Plunder Release Party

On Thursday, September 6th, Calapooia Brewing Co. is proud to release Pirate’s Plunder Pale Ale. This brew, conconcted by Mare and Doug Goeger, won Best of Show at the 2007 Oregon Homebrew and Microbrew Festival in Corvallis. We were honored when they asked for our help and use of facilities to help bring this award-winning beer to the masses (well, ok, we only have a 6 barrel system, but you get the point). Mare, Doug, Mark, and Colin brewed Pirate’s Plunder together in July, and it is now ready to wow the world. Join us at 4:30 for the release of this well-rounded, refreshing Pale Ale… stay for the Beaver game on our big screen, and the return of the Wild Hogs, starting at 7:30. (Dang, and I alread used my menage a troi joke in the last post!)

Just an FYI that on September 8th, a new band will be gracing the corner at the ‘Pooia. The Conjugal Visitors will start at around 8. Come support our new, local music!
