Stolichnaya Moscow Mule Night

Stolichnaya Moscow Mule Night

Date: November 17

Time: 5PM

Join us for a Stoli Mule!

Just because the summer weather has left us for the next few months doesn’t mean that a Moscow Mule made with Stolichnaya Vodka will be any less refreshing.

 

Don’t know what a Moscow Mule is?  Let us explain.

Items needed:

  • Copper mug/desired glassware
  • Stolichnaya Vodka
  • Ginger Beer
  • Limes/lime juice
  • Ice

First you need a copper mug, or at least that is the preferred glassware to serve it in.  Fill your mug or chosen drinking vessel with ice.  Then, pour a generous amount (1.5oz is typical if you’re following a recipe) of Stolichnaya vodka into vessel.  Add a splash of fresh squeezed lime juice, and then fill copper mug up the rest of the way with ginger beer.  Garnish rim of mug with a fresh slice of lime.  Pick up mug, place mug to lips, and enjoy.

Simple, yet refreshing.

Choice City Butcher & Deli x BBB Collab Release

Date: February 17

Time: 6PM

Choice City is turning 12!

We teamed up with Choice City Butcher & Deli a little bit ago to brew up a beer in honor of their 12th birthday, and now it’s just about time to release it.  The Belgian Quad has been resting in two different barrels, one whiskey barrel and one red wine barrel, for the last few months.  We’ve now emptied the barrels and combined the two together, creating one big bad Quad named “twelve”.

The 12th anniversary party will be taking place at Choice City Butcher and Deli on February 17th from 6pm-9pm.  They’ll be tapping “twelve” (and many other tasty beers) and having food and beer specials all night.  It’ll be a packed house for sure so we’d suggest showing up sooner than later to get in on the action.  You won’t want to miss out on this party, Choice City knows how to throw down.

See you there!

PS:  We’ll be tapping “twelve” at Black Bottle on February 19th.

Screamin Peach celebrates 10th Anniversary

Screamin Peach celebrates 10th Anniversary

Date: February 17

Time: 6PM

Pineapple.  Chocolate.  Beer.

“A Brazilian Times Better”, a collaboration brewed just for Screamin Peach’s 10th Anniversary.  Though you may have imagined this group would’ve gone with a recipe that included peaches, they in fact wanted to do the exact opposite.  Instead, this anniversary collab used a wheat beer base, then we threw in some pineapple and chocolate to finish it all off.  Some of you may be disappointed in the lack of peaches but don’t knock this one until you try it.

The Screamin Peach fam will be celebrating their 10th Anniversary at The Mayor of Old Town on February 17th starting at 6pm.  You’ll be able to get your first crack at tasting collaboration brew “A Brazilian Times Better”.  This group works hard to keep Fort Collins looking good so show up and help celebrate their b-day!

Congrats on turning the big 1-0!

PS:  We’ll be tapping “A Brazilian Times Better” at BBB on February 19th.

it’s your turn to help us pick what’s next!

We’ve set up a bracket (which will be release shortly) for some Cerealious(ly) competition and we need your help.

Skipping through the craziness of 64 teams (cereals) we’ve cut the field down to eight (8) and placed them in a tournament bracket.  Throughout March we’ll be posting polls to our Facebook page with different cereal match ups for all of our fans to vote on.  You’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite cereal to advance on to the next round and help us select the next cereal used in the Cerealiously.

Next part.

You can fill out a bracket (similar to that of the NCAA Tournament) for a chance to win either a $100 or $50 Black Bottle Brewery gift card.  All you have to do is earn the most points with your correct selections in the bracket.  Winning cereals will be chosen by the polls on Facebook and your brackets destiny, and the beer’s, is in the hands of those who vote.

Pay close attention to our Facebook during the month of March for the latest polls and results.

Here’s a break down of the rules:

  • Fill out your 2016 Cerealiously Madness Bracket, keeping in mind who you think will win, NOT who you want to win.
  • Turn in completed bracket to BBB staff member with all info filled out BEFORE MARCH 15TH.  Yes, ALL of it.  We have to be able to contact you if/when you win!
  • Cast your vote online on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/blackbottlebrew/).
    • 1st Round – 3/15 through 3/19
    • 2nd Round Pt. 1 – 3/21 through 3/26
    • 2nd Round Pt. 2 – 3/28 through 4/2
    • 3rd Round/Championship – 4/4 through 4/9
  • Points will be tallied after all polls have been completed and a cereal (champion) has been crowned.  The person with the most points wins.
    • 1st Round – 1pt per correct pick
    • 2nd Round – 2pts per correct pick
    • 3rd Round/Championship – 3pts for correct pick
  • In case of a tie, we’ll host a jousting battle (JK, we’ll have a random drawing with all qualifying participants like mentioned above).
