Wanna Hang Out With The Guys Who Make Nugget Nectar?

troegs-nugget-nectarOf course you do, right? I mean, who wouldn’t want to? Nugget Nectar is one of those cultish beers that super-nerds get all jazzed over, and on Wednesday, February 1, the guys who make it–Chris and John Trogner of Troegs–and author Josh Bernstein will be at Standard Tap for a small, intimate gathering that is all about the Nugget Nectar.

Here’s the catch, though. This event is going to be small. It’s limited to 40 seats. So if you’re thinking that this is exactly the kind of thing you want to do on a Wednesday night, then you should probably make your reservations now.

But before you do that…

Over at the news desk, they’re telling the tale today of Eric Wagner, veteran sous chef at Standard Tap in NoLibs, who took to the streets to defend the peace and quiet of his customers’ Sunday brunch this past weekend–doing battle against an evil car alarm with the best weapon at his disposal.

Post-It Notes. Lots and lots of Post-It Notes.

Write a Letter at Standard Tap Every Tuesday in March

standard tap pub letters 400When was the last time you sat down and wrote a real letter to someone, on paper, and mailed it to them? I can guess that it’s been a while—at least it has been for me.

Maybe now is the time to sit down with a pen and paper to catch up with an old friend, see how Grandma is doing, or just write to yourself about something that’s been on your mind. Even better, have a little beer by your side.

Every Tuesday in March at Standard Tap, you can do just that: drink beer and write a letter. From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Yards Brewing Company is presenting Pub Letters, a special event that will provide free stamps and stationary to anyone who has something they want—or need—to say. And hey, maybe a little beer will get your creative juices going or give you that liquid courage you need before confessing your love to someone (don’t forget to proofread!).

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.

It’s Finally (Actually) Time for Pumpkin

ST-2014Pumpkinhead-Igram

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.
