The “World’s Oldest Human” recently passed away. I am beginning to think that this title is a curse. In related news, actor Verne Troyer died. A short memorial service is planned.

I am proud to report that both beer aficionados and category trialists have confirmed that our recently released Mexican Lager is an outstanding beer. Taproom sales of this deliciously refreshing beer are regularly surpassing those of our signature Coconut Porter. We’re serving the Mexican Lager in a specially designed beer glass with a lime wedge. And wait till you see what we have planned for Cinco de Mayo. How about opening the day with a Mariachi band?
Steve Jobs used to wear the same outfit every day. Still does.
Despite the hoopla surrounding the Mexican Lager and Coconut Porter, my all-time favorite is Jimmy the Brewmaster’s Mosaic Pale Ale. Here’s how our Chief Innovation Officer, Dr. David Ryder, describes the brew: “This powerful version of a mid-western pale ale sweeps the palate with mango, lemon, citrus, tropical fruit and stone fruit, additionally accented with earthy pine and green pepper flavor notes. This multitude of flavor sinks deep into the taste buds, briefly clinging to the roof of the mouth to enliven the palate adding zest. Flowery citrus notes dominate by mid-serving masterfully integrating with the patina of bitterness that finishes with a 5.5 ABV snap. The palate cleansing hop character comes courtesy of Mosaic and Equanot hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest. As the pale, tawny and orangey-gold body warms an intriguing volume of effervescence drives the mouthfeel and momentum to its lively citrus refreshing conclusion A knockout, clean and forcefully unique pale ale!”
Whether you choose a Mexican Lager, a Coconut Porter, a Mosaic Pale Ale or one of the other delicious brews from Jimmy and his team, I do not believe there is a more idyllic setting anywhere to enjoy a refreshing beer than our water-side beer garden. And we’re making a great location even greater with our on-going improvements.
