I was just talking to Paul the other day when I recalled it had been some time since I had caught up the website. At last check, we were still hoping the Beavs were Rose Bowl bound… Sadly they were not, but we congratulate them on another great season and look forward to 2010!

Here’s a quick picture from the live radio broadcast of the Joe Beavers Show at our brewpub:

Brewpub News

Since then there have been a couple changes around the pub.

First we’re changing our hours: We are now open every day of the week at 11:30!

And we’ve changed our keg sales hours as follows:

  • Tuesday 4:30-5:30pm
  • Thursday 4:30-5:30pm
  • Friday 4:30-5:30pm

In beer news, Mark has just finished a brand new amber rye recipe that Matt has named Rock Hard Rye. It features a hop that is new to us, the Zeus Bittering hops. It’s an American aromatic high-alpha hop — 15%, aka powerful! Mark reports this will only be available at the pub and should be pouring in about 3 weeks. He also noted that Simco Springs is now available again, and they have enough for some limited distribution as well.

A quick reminder that we have lots of great live music every week at our Downtown Albany brewpub. Become a fan of our Facebook group and get all the updates every week from Paul!
