Tired Hands Brewing Co

This Saturday, April 18th, Jean Broillet and the rest of the brew team at Tired Hands Brewing Company are hitting up five different bars, showing off beer brewed from their operational (but not yet open to the public) Fermentaria.

The brewers will be at Local 44 from 12-1 pm, Strangelove’s from 2-3 pm, Standard Tap from 4-5 pm, Memphis Taproom from 6-7 pm and Alla Spina from 8-9 pm. They’ll be pouring their popular HopHands as well as debuting Rutilant, their new IPA brewed with Nelson Sauvin and Cascade Hops.

Plan on meeting up with them at one spot or another. Just don’t follow them around all day. That’s stalking.

It’s Finally (Actually) Time for Pumpkin


So even if you’re like us at Foobooz, hating all things too-soon pumpkin, I think we can all agree that since the end of October is near it’s finally time to break out the pumpkin and like it. And for all of you who love pumpkin no matter how early in the season it is, this will send you over the moon.

Tonight, Standard Tap is hosting Pumpkin Head 2014. Starting at 4 p.m., the Tap will have a huge variety of pumpkin beers on tap, and for $10 you can get your very own hallowed out pumpkin from which you will drink the pumpkin beer. It really can’t get much more pumpkin-y that that. As a plus, after you’re finished your first pumpkin head, every refill from then on is only $2.

Standard Tap recommends getting there as close to 4 p.m. as possible because of limited supply of pumpkins.

Greensgrow Farms Is Throwing A Shrimp Boil

GGShrimpBoilIn case you don’t already know what you’re doing next Saturday, here’s something to add to your calendar: Greensgrow Farms is throwing a shrimp boil. It’s a benefit event for the Greensgrow Community Kitchen (which is a social entrepreneurship project which does everything from acting as a classroom and a licensed kitchen for food truck owners and small food entrepreneurs, to serving as the place where Greensgrow assembles all its prepared food and an educational venture helping people “navigate the labyrinth of city certifications and licenses”), so right from the start you can feel good about attending. But more important, it’s also gonna be a sweet party–a straight up low country shrimp boil with lots of food, popsicles from Little Pop Shop, beer from Philadelphia Brewing Company, and a Zydeco dance party on the side.
