There is just something about Thursdays that make me want to get to the pub for a couple of well-earned pints. This week there are a few fantastic options for your week’s end libations! Which event are you planning on attending?
C Is for Cookie – Eagle Rock Brewery
Have a favorite holiday cookie recipe? Bake up a batch and bring them by the ERB Tap-Room this evening for an informal cookie-potluck and recipe exchange, and maybe even discover a great beer + cookie pairing!
You know what sounds awesome? A chocolate chip oatmeal cookie with a tall pint of Vanilla Solidarity.

The Lion and Bear on the Red Carpet – Blue Palms Brewhouse
Firestone Walker and Hollywood’s Blue Palms Brewhouse go way back, and they’ve got a special treat for the craft beer hot-spot: a release party for the new XVI Anniversary Ale! David Walker himself will be on-hand to get the big beers flowing, and there will be (extremely) limited flights of Anniversary 10 -16 (1oz pours for $40) as well as the less insane flights of Anniversary 13 – 16 (3oz pours for $25) available. Some other special Firestone Walker beers will be on tap too, including Velvet Merkin and Rufus (which spent 5-years in bourbon barrels!)
Door open at 5pm, and you’ll want to get there early for a shot at the 7-year flight:
The Very limited Anniversary Flights 10-16 will go on sale IN PERSON ONLY when we open at 5pm tonight – and they will be poured at the same time to all that have purchased them, once we reach our capacity.
Beer of Tomorrow will be at the Blue Palms event, so say “hi” if you see us there!
