Beer Events Week of 8/19/12

Brewed for Thought is putting on a couple of brewery showcases this week locally.

On Tuesday the 21st, Toad in the Hole will have a showcase of Highwater Brewing. Their No Boundaries IPA is a great brew, and they make some pretty solid stuff.

Heritage Public House will host Mad River the following night. I confess to not really trying any of their beers. I’m a bad beer nerd.

Lastly, New Belgium will be taking over Taps in Petaluma on Thursday. Look for some Lips of Faith beers. They are usually strong offerings.

If you are willing to travel a bit, Beer Revolution is having a Meet the Brewer event with Telegraph Brewing Wednesday night at 6.

Have an event you’d like featured? Hit me up in the comments.

Slow News Day: Chasin’ Freshies Label

Not much going on out there at the moment.

Deschutes did release the label for their upcoming, highly anticipated (at least as far as I’m concerned) Chasin’ Freshies wet hop beer.

Cool, typical Bond St label.

On the local front, there’s a couple of brewery showcases this week at various locations.

Tonight is 21st Amendment Night at Toad in the Hole, and tomorrow at Heritage, Bear Republic will be featured. Both are put on by Brewed for Thought. So go check them out.

Also, tomorrow night will be the book release for a brand new book showcasing Northern California breweries at Whole Foods Coddingtown at 6 PM. Meet the author and special kegs. I’ll be there, so you should be too.
