Hello Friends of Fort George.
We are getting very close to Stout Month. We have a bunch of activities planned for February. Eight fabulous Stouts will be on tap, including Our Cavatica Stout and a Bourbon Barrel aged version of the Cavatica. We'll have a Russian Imperial Stout from Stone Brewing, The Abyss from Deschutes Brewing, Port Barrel aged Stout from The Lucky Lab, Old Growth Imperial Stout from Caldera Brewing, Chocolate Stout from Rogue Brewing and a Super Special Treat, Coffee Girl Imperial Stout from Fort George. A special taster tray will be available giving you the opportunity to taste them all blindly and surprise yourself with the actual identities of the stouts. More Stouts will be added if necessary to get to the end of the month.
The Fort will Celebrate Fat Tuesday on February 5th. with Boiled Crawfish, Dungeness Crab Hushpuppies, Crawfish Etouffee and Bourbon Barrel Cavatica Stout Pecan Pie.
Also, A Beer Appreciation for Women seminar will be held Saturday, February 9th. $25.00 gets you instruction, written materials, samples of at least 8 beers from a variety of top craft breweries, decadent snacks, server gratuity and a brewery tour all from one of the most renowned beer writers in America, the "Beer Goddess" aka Lisa Morrison. There is a 30 person limit on this so call or email to sign up quick.
Also, our February Brewers Dinner is on Wednesday the 13th and will feature Stouts and Oysters. Chris is getting some special stouts in addition to our draft selection and Dana is serving up oysters on the half shell, oyster flan, Champagne Oyster brie bisque, oyster and mushroom stuffed pork roast and Coffee Girl stout sorbet. Tickets are $50.00 and include everything you need for a great Valentines eve night out.
Thanks for reading all this. Remember, I see a Red Beer and I want to paint it Black. Stout Month starts Friday.
