I just wanted to list a couple of upcoming events....
May 2-5, 2007- NERAX (New EnglandReal Ale Exhibition)
The New England Real Ale Exhibition is held each spring at the George Dilboy Post Davis Square, Somerville, MA
NERAX 2007 will be our 11th Festival. As in 2006, we will offer about 80 firkins of Real Ale. Half will be U.K. beers from England, Scotland, and Wales; and half will be American beers from New England. All the beers are cask-conditioned, served by gravity or hand-pump.
For a hint of what's to come, here are the UK and American beers expected to arrive.
And during the festival you can also enjoy barbeque sandwiches from Redbones.
Amber, Ian and I are expected to attend on Thursday. Ryan, Amber and I are expected to attend on Friday.
May 4-5th - 5:00PM - CBC Anniversary Party.
18 Years/18 Beers
On May 4th and 5th the CBC will celebrate its 18th anniversary. Head brewer Will Meyers will dig deep into the CBC vaults to bring you 18 of his one of a kind brews including several delicious barrel aged varieties and vintage brews like the imperial stout, YouEnjoyMyStout that spent 13 months in the wood and the Arquebus barleywine that aged for 18 months in the barrel cellar. Chef Brian Roskow, not one to be shown up, will match with 18 beer infused specials. Specialty brews will be available until...well, they're gone. Come early. Stay Late.
Andy hopes to be making an appearance on Friday. Ryan, Jen, Amber, Ian, Kristen and I are hoping to go on Saturday.
May 8- 2007 - 100 BBL Tasting: #19 - Peche
Rich Doyle, Harpoon’s CEO and co-founder, first tasted this Belgian style beer in Brugge 3 years ago while traveling on a Harpoon beer culture trip. He immediately fell in love with the beer and wanted to brew a batch ever since. So for the 19th installment of the Harpoon 100 Barrel Series, Rich brewed a Peche.
We've signed up on the website and hopefully we will be invited.
May 21- 2007 - Hot Stove Cold Beer with Peter Gammons (Boston)
An Evening With Peter Gammons for Some Hot Stove, Cold Beer
Harpoon is honored to welcome back friend and baseball expert, Peter Gammons, for our 3rd annual "Hot Stove Cold Beer With Peter Gammons". It will be an unforgettable evening with the sports writing legend and Baseball Hall-of-Famer. A homerun-of-a-night, if you will! Now that we have seen a month of the baseball season unfold, it’s a perfect time to get Peter’s unique perspective on everything baseball. And what could be better than doing that while enjoying a fresh Commissioner Pale Ale, specially brewed for this event, with The Commissioner himself? Not much.
Not only will it be fun, but it’s for a terrific cause. All ticket sales will benefit The Foundation to Be Named Later. (Tickets are available to Friends of Harpoon until May 4th at $75 per person. After May 4th, tickets will be $100 per person. Guests do not have to be Friends of Harpoon.)Ian and I are planning on signing up for this event.
If you see something that you are interested in, please let us know. If there is an event missing, send me an email and I will add it to this blog.
May is try a new micro brew month!!!
