Beer news

Couple of beer-related items kicking off today.

First, McMenamins is having their last-Wednesday-of-the-month Limited Release beer tasting tonight, starting at 5pm:

Bring all your beer-minded friends out to try a specially released beer, with pints selling at Happy Hour prices all night long (or ’til the keg is kicked!).

"Admission" is free though you’ll still pay for the beer, of course.

Also today is the grand opening of 10 Barrel Brewing‘s new westside brewpub, over on Galveston. The Bulletin has a short writeup today, with a few details:

The pub will open at 11 a.m. daily and will serve 10 different 10 Barrel beers, plus a full menu of pizzas, burgers, salads and more. The 3,000-square-foot building has an 80-person capacity, as well as four large garage doors that will be opened when the weather permits, said co-partner Garrett Wales.

The new pub’s address is 1135 NW Galveston, in the former DiLusso Bakery building.

One thought on “Beer news

  1. Went in to 10 Barrel’s new place twice today (once on my own at lunch and once after work with the wife) and I have to say I think they have a good thing going over there.

    It was nice to get to taste something from 10 Barrel besides Code 24 and Sinist0r. They have a barrel aged blend of two beers (their IPA and Red if I remember correctly) which was great and the Sinist0r on nitro! Also, the pizza was very good, though you had better be in the mood for thin crust.

    All-in-all, I think it will be a regular stop for me. As with most pubs, it can get very loud when busy (and it was packed tonight obviously) but aside from that I have nothing but positive things to say. Go check it out.
