The end continues, and the return of more fan favorites

Want some beer? Oh, have we got beer.

The beer we have

  • Frank
  • The Whale
  • The IPA
  • Stout Affective Disorder
  • Cole’s 80th Anniversary IPA
  • The End Is Rye
  • The Double IPA

The end! It always seems to be rye.

The beer we will have

Next week, we’ll also have:

  • Nouveau Riche, our cream ale!
  • Heatrays (2014), our American barleywine released just in time for Thanksgiving
  • And, if the kegs allow it, Singularity (Palisade)!

Events in the next week

  • Tonight is Fat Bob’s Buffalove Party from 8-11: watch the Bills and Sabres play, and hang out with representatives of us, Ellicottville, Resurgence, McKenzie’s, Hamburg, Big Ditch and Flying Bison! They’ll have a half price bar menu and 60 cent wings, plus me, so, you know, you basically have to come.

  • Next Wednesday is our fourth book club, wherein we read Nickel City Drafts and then meet on Mister Goodbar’s second floor at 7 to talk about it. You really need to read it, if for no other reason than to know how crazy Canal St used to be.

  • What are you doing on Black Friday? How about supporting local businesses and listening to some great music? Record Theatre, anchoring the other side of Lafayette, not only has a lot of vinyl specials but will also be having New Politics play with food from R&R BBQ and a cask beer tasting with us.

He always stands like this

What else we’ve been up to

  • We’ve always had an unfortunate stipulation that we don’t sell retail kegs of The IPA: we just couldn’t make enough of it! However, as of now that restriction has been lifted and you can buy 1/6 bbl (5.16 gallon) kegs of Frank, The Whale, The IPA and Stout Affective Disorder for your parties or events! Keg FAQS: $90 plus a $30 deposit if you don’t have your own keg; taps available for a $10 deposit; subject to availability but you can email us ahead of time to reserve something; we’ll fill cornies as long as they’re clean and you give us a few days after you drop it off.

  • Hydraulic Hearth is now open! We aren’t brewing there yet — there are, as there always are, more licensing hoops to jump through — but our beer is certainly on tap, fresh as can be from 15 Lafayette

  • On cellaring, a polite way of saying “forgetting”: I talk about the beer in my basement, how it got there and for how long I’ve forgotten it

Other nifty beer things

And finally

  • O-U-I-J-A, an episode of the always incredible 99% Invisible, about the history of the Ouija board
  • Me at Fat Bob’s tonight:

Did you see that ludicrous display last night?
