It’s our anniversary and we’re having a party! On December 4th we’ll release our latest anniversary/birthday beer as we begin our 17th year!
Here’s what you need to know about the latest Excelsior! brew: Our ANNIVERSARY 17 is a hybrid between a Wheat ale and an India Pale Ale. The vision was to create something that had a round bitterness, a dry finish, but a nice wheat sweetness. The aroma is straight up spicy and citrusy like pink peppercorn and oranges. This beer is bottle conditioned with a brettanomyces yeast strain so it will evolve over time and add more complexity to an already unique brew. Alcohol by volume is 8.8%.
Here’s what you need to know about the release and anniversary party: On Thursday December 4th the party is at our place, beginning at 5pm. Admission is $20 (you can RSVP by calling the taproom at 607-273-0766). We can only accommodate 150 guests, so even though we’ll welcome people at the door, those 150 spaces might fill up ahead if time (so we suggest you call ahead). Admission gets you:
- A 750ml bottle of Anniversary 17!
- A “17” tulip glass!
- 5 tasting tickets for specialty beers from previous years
- Light hors d’oeuvres: Wild Boar Sliders! Potato Croquette! Canapé!
We’ll also be giving away merchandise every hour, and there will be a super fun photo booth for you to have your photo taken! The event will be held primarily in a heated tent, snow or shine, just outside our building, with easy access to and from our taproom. Note: the taproom will be open as usual, we will not halt regular service for this event.
Again, we encourage you to RSVP for this once a year party by calling the taproom at 607-273-0766. See you soon!
