|Greetings! |We've got spring fever! Beer tasting fever, that is.
If you've also got the bug, join us & taste some beer!
A lot of folk tell us, "I've not yet come in for tasting because I don't know how it works." So here's a quick overview...
Come in anytime during the event time; check in before last call. Proceed straight to the front checkout with ID & tasting fee to check-in. Once you've got that official paperwork out of the way, you'll get sent to the back "pouring area" of the counter to join in the fun!Wednesday's Weekly Pick
are pretty casual. Most folks ease on up to the counter after checking in, get their first pour and browse & shop while sipping, then return for their second pour. Generally this is a sip-2-fer-$1 night, but we sometimes mix it up!1st Monday's Beer Adventure
is new territory! Beer Adventure of 2011 replaces Style Nights of 2008-2010, and the adventure will take us all kinds of places. Be sure to check out the special glass the first 50 tasters will receive at February's featured beer adventure as we explore the Samuel Adams engineered glass.Special Guests Events
give you an incredible opportunity to meet the movers-n-shakers in the beer industry. Sometimes it'll be a local brewery representative, other times the BREWER will be in the house! These events are a great opportunity for those interested in beer to come in and chat about what's happening while enjoying good company & good beer.
Sincerely,The 99 Bottles Crew -
Tiffany, Craig & Dennis

Rastal's been making glasses for 88 years, so they were the ideal company for Boston Beer to partner with when designing the ultimate beer glass. The shape of the glass maximizes enjoyment of the malt sweetness, captures the aromas of the hops, maintains the proper temperature, fits comfortably in the hand, and features a "nucleation etch" that keeps the carbonation moving to continually release the beer's aromas. Try 4 beers at February's Beer Adventure...

|Meet & Sip with brewing legends|
1st Shot - Jim Woods,
Jim started as a homebrewer before going pro in 2006. His love of Yerba Mate, a naturally caffeinated South American herbal tea, led him to brew a series of beers that include Yerba Mate as a key ingredient. The result is a glass of beer that's got similar caffeine to a cup of coffee. Enjoy the MateVeza Black & IPA while visiting with Jim about his brewing experience.
2nd Shot - Kurt Widmer,
Widmer Bros. Brewing
If you've been in the Northwest for a while, you're likely familiar with a city known as "Beervana." Portland was the first and biggest hotbed of microbrewing, and leading the craft brew revolution back in 1984 were Rob & Kurt Widmer. You know them as the WIDMER BROTHERS. You've likely seen a tall sexy glass of their hefeweizen crowned with a lemon wedge at a bar, but we won't be offering that beer this eve. Instead, we'll focus on the big, bold beers: Deadlift IPA, W'11 KGB Russian Imperial Stout and Brrrrbon, a strong ale aged in bourbon barrels.
