Strangeways will be harvesting two brand new beers just in time for Labor Day. Still Life With Peaches Saison and Eternal Youth Biére d'Abricot will be ripe for the plucking, along with the re-release of two of their most popular beers, Wampus Cat Triple IPA and Überlin Berliner Weiss. There will also be bountiful fruit-inspired Curiosities emerging each day.
BIG EVENT THURSDAY: Co-release of multiple beers at Mekong and Strangeways Tasting Room along with a large variety of extremely special variations specifically made for the occasion. Come out and taste what An Mekong, Brandon Tolbert and Mike Hiller have concocted.
Also Thursday through Monday:
*New fruit-inpsired Curiosities released daily
*Steal the Grunt, Growler and Blue Ball Mason Jars the entire month of August and Labor Day Monday
*Specials of Strangways Vessel refills
Still Life With Peaches Saison:
4.3% ABV~15 IBU
-Traditional Belgian-style farmhouse Saison sporting the classic Saison DuPont yeast culture. Distinctive yeast characters blend brilliantly with the peaches added during fermentation. Aged in oak barrels for 3 weeks and then keg-conditioned for a pleasant, natural carbonation. Inspired by Paul Cezanne's painting "Still Life with Apples and Peaches."
Eternal Youth Bière d'Abricot:
5.2% ABV~15 IBU
-French farmhouse style bière de garde with apricots (abricots). Garded for 6 weeks in oak barrels. Lovely, dry bière de garde with notes of wheat and subtle fruit esters from fermentation coupled with distinct apricot fruit flavor. The moderate ABV makes for a sessionable, late-summer delight.

Who couldn't use a night of good beer, insane laughter, and extreme inappropriateness on a Monday?
Here the skinny:
1. Bring a team of 4-7 people and make sure one of you owns the game (all versions are welcome).
2. The first game will begin at 6:45 but come early to make sure you get a table (we open at 4p), we've only got space for about 15 teams.
3. Each team will play until 7:30 and then the first game is finished. The person on your team with the most black cards at that time wins a prize. Weeee!
4. The second game begins at 7:45 and will end at 8:30. Everyone has a clean slate for the second game and prizes will again be awarded to the winner on each team.
•You must be 21
•Someone on your team must bring the game. We have no spares.
•This game can be EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE. No joke. You'll laugh at things that will make you question the entire make up of your being. You have been warned.
•No pre sign-ups. Just come.
Everyone loves testing their brilliance with a great beer in their hand. You get the chance to show the world how freakin' smart you are every Tuesday with quick-witted trivia by Thomas McDonald. Bring your brains, your buddies, and a buck each to play for prizes and the pot. Craft beer drinkers are the most intelligent people in the world so come prove it.
Ladies & Gentlemen! Every Wednesday, all of our 5.5 oz. pours are one low price including our newest Überlin Berliner Weiss. We've got 25 beers on tap to experiment with and each week there will be new ones to try. Bring your friends and indulge in your plethora of options.
Wash down your weekday worries at Steal the Vessel Thursdays. Purchase a to-go beer for a Growler, Grunt, or Blue Ball, and receive the glass for free every Thursday. Want to bring the whole work crew? Any business scheduling a private event for 30 or more folks can rent our back tasting room for free on Thursdays. We'll reserve on a first come, first serve basis but you must make a reservation. Popping Mealies will also be on site so supper is covered. Friday is, sometimes, just too far away.
