As always, Thursday night means “showcase” night at the Great Lost Bear. This week is one of my absolute favorite breweries – Brooklyn Brewery! From 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., the GLB will be pouring $2.50 pints of Brooklyn Lager, Blunderbuss Old Ale and the Brooklynator Doppelbock. Additionally, the high-alcohol (and delicious, ‘natch) Black Chocolate Stout will go for 3.50 per 13 oz pour. As always, fun, prizes and giveaways are part of the evening. Also, skiers take note – Josh from Shawnee Peak will be in the house, giving out free lift tickets!
Come next week, the taps and “showcase” price will be switched out for Rogue Ales, hailing from Newport, Oregon. So far, we know that Yellow Snow IPA, Dead Guy Ale and Rogue Chocolate Stout will be on tap on the 26th for 2.50 a pint. As the event draws closer, expect the showcase list to grow.
If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to go to the Great Lost Bear or sample some new beer, find a way to get down to Forest Avenue this or next week. Rogue and Brooklyn brew some of the best craft beer on the market, and you won’t be able to try their beer for any cheaper than these showcases.
