Fort Street Brewery News

Here’s the latest from Fort Street Brewery via Brewmaster Doug Beedy:

Greetings and salutations!

Darkness is upon us!  This Thursday, September 21st at midnight (technically Friday morning) we will release Motor City _Mocha.  This is a robust porter made with white and dark chocolate and it is one heck of a tasty treat.  Much like when record stores open at midnight for the release of a hot new album, I expect a line out the door for a chance to be the first to taste this luscious ale!  Fan Club Members, you can actually get your free sneak peak anytime after 7 p.m. on Thursday.  Prizes will be given out at the midnight tapping.

The midnight release is exciting, but what’s even more exciting is the fact that you can go to sleep dreaming about our beer, and then wake-up and drink some more!  That’s right, we will open at 7 a.m. Friday morning with not only Motor City _Mocha, but with small batches of Vandalay Porter (vanilla porter) and Black Tie Porter (rye porter).  We will serve breakfast until 11 a.m. and then our regular menu will be served.  $2.50 pints of most beers until 6 p.m.  We’ll have prizes for the first ten people in the door Friday morning.

If you’re single, or know someone who is and looking for something to do tonight, Southeast Michigan Singles is having game night at the brewery tonight beginning at 7:30 p.m.  Cost is $5.  On October 10th, they will have speed-dating for 33-45 year olds at the brewery.  Cost is $20 and that includes appetizers.  You must pre-register for that event by e-mailing the group leader at

I don’t know if it’s the economy or what, but we used to have to beat people off with the a stick whenever we announced a Beer Fantasy Camp, but now we can’t give tickets away.  Monday, September 18th is our next, and I feel could be one of the best Fantasy Camps.  The style is porters (we’ll have 6-8 different ones) and the menu consists of Smoked Swiss and Roasted Red Pepper Quesadillas, Buffalo Steak with Three Potato Casserole, and Chocolate Porter Floats.  Cost is just $30.  If we don’t get at least 6 more people signed-up by Thursday, I’ll have to cancel.

See ya soon,
