Fort Street Brewery News

This week (week of September 25, 2006) looks like fun, courtesy of Brewmaster Doug and the folks at Fort Street Brewery:

Greetings and salutations!
This Thursday, September 28th is the kick-off of our Volksfest and Welcome to October party.  The fun begins at 7:30 p.m. with the tapping of not one, not two, but three new beers!  First, we have a big batch seasonal called Eleven!, which is a classic Oktoberfest-style lager.  In addition, we have two small-batch pumpkin beers.  “The Great Pumpkin Ale” is a pretty standard pumpkin beer made with real pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.  “Potiron Mort” is what I call a Belgian pumpkin beer, because it is fermented with a yeast from a Belgian brewery, so it has some of that typical Beglian ale character, in addition to the pumpkin and spice.  As usual, we will have some nice prizes for a few lucky guests in attendance.  Fan Club members can get their sneak peak of “Eleven!” on Wednesday.

Aside from the new beers, we will run a small German food menu all weekend long, consisting of German meat loaf, sauerkraut balls, and potato pancakes.  On Friday and Saturday, we will have a DJ playing from 9 p.m. to close.  I know that’s not very German-like, but you should see how much those German bands charge!  But don’t let those two letters scare you away.  These guys are not obnoxious, the music is not too loud, and they don’t play any of that music the gang bangers like to kill each other over.

Fort Street is going Wi-Fi!  Finally, this week we are having wireless internet installed.  If you simply cannot be away from your computer, you don’t have to hang out at Starbuck’s anymore!  Now you can spill beer on your computer instead of coffee.

Kevin and Susan Adkins are the new leaders of the Fort Street Fantasy Football league.  Complete results are posted on the website and at the brewery.

See ya soon,
