October 2016 Newsletter
From the Brewer...
Happy GABF Week, Errybody!
Some of us are packing up and heading west to join all of our brewing brothers and sister friends in Denver for the Big Show. Perennial won't be pouring on the floor at GABF, but check out our events page for all of the happenings surrounding GABF in Denver and nearby. We sent in Glitter & Gold, Meriwether, Funky Wit, Foeder Saison, and Von Pampelmuse for judging this year. You can livestream the award ceremony beginning at 11 am CDT this Saturday, 10/8, at http://livestream.com/thebrewingnetwork/gabf2016.
Also, Abraxas Week is close at hand, friends! We've been brewing this year's batches on our bright, shiny new brewhouse and we think they're tasting better than ever. In addition to what we'll be sending out through our normal distribution, this year we'll be once again offering the opportunity to sign up locally and online for packages that include 2 bottles of regular Abraxas and 1 bottle of Coffee Abraxas blended with coffee from the good folks at Sump Coffee. Local signups will be next Wednesday, October 12th at 4:00PM CST in the tasting room, and online sales will be Friday, October 14th at 9:00AM CST. Pick ups will start Tuesday, October 25, and run through Saturday, October 29.
Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter feeds for more details.
I love you all.
