Strangeways will be harvesting two 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 and Überlin Berliner Weiss will make its return. There will also be bountiful fruit-inspired Curiosities emerging each day.

*Specials of Strangways Vessel refills
Still Life With Peaches Saison (Draft only)
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 bottle- and 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.
