It’s that time again. Our next ‘pop up’ truck sale will be Saturday, July 12th at Pilgrim Park and Railroad Street in Waterbury (the old Station Lumber site; next to the train station).
This sale has been planned to coincide with The Waterbury Arts Festival.
A block party kicks off the fun-filled event on Friday evening and village festivities run through Saturday afternoon. For more information visit: http://waterburyartsfest.com/
We are going to start this next sale at 3pm. We will not be sending kegs of these beers around to local accounts as we will be pouring these beers the following weekend at the Vermont Brewers Festival. I am quite sure that you can rely on the usually spectacular beer offerings in town. With a 3 pm start time, it will be a lot easier for visitors to hit the festival or visit local establishments to grab a bite and try a lot of really great beer.
Our plan is to begin the sale at 3pm; we should be done by 4:30pm.
We have been successful with having most people park right across the tracks from the train station. This leaves us with a clear parking lot in which to get started on setting up the sale. When we are ready to begin the sale, we will once again lead you over to the start of the line. We will bring everyone over to the sale lot a little sooner in an attempt to limit our encroachment on Coffee Roasters space. Thank you for being respectful to your fellow beer enthusiasts; we have received wonderful feedback from everyone at the previous sales. Let’s keep up the good vibes.
So, here is the lowdown on our upcoming sale:
The Crusher- we have brewed a couple more batches of this double IPA. We have made a few minor tweaks to the recipe. The onslaught of hoppy goodness is there in full force. Once again, The Crusher has been dry-hopped with two strains of hops and comes in at 9.6% ABV.
The latest batch of Focal Banger is getting ever closer to its final recipe. This time, we used Pearl and Pilsner malt as the base. The hop character is just where I want it, and I have brought down the final gravity just a touch to add a bit more crispness. Very nice, I think you’ll like it.
We will be selling The Crusher and Focal Banger mixed cases. Limit is 1 case per person. This case will include 3 four packs of each beer. The cost will be $75/case, tax and deposit included. Four-packs will also be available for $13. Limit 3 four-packs per person of each style. Please keep in mind, as with previous sales, this will be a CASH ONLY sales event.
We anticipate having about 500 mixed cases. Everyone will be allowed to purchase a full case until we run out. Once you pass through the line with your initial purchase, you are welcome to get back in at the end of the line. We have tried to be very good about going down the line, counting customers, in order to keep the guessing to a minimum.
Once again, DJ Rekkon will be providing music to make your wait in line more enjoyable.
We WILL NOT have Heady Topper for sale at the pop-up. We may be able to supply Craft Beer Cellars with extra Heady Topper- it really depends on our yields this week. We will make an update later in the week after our canning runs. Keep your fingers crossed for a good yield so we can send extra Heady to Craft Beer…
So, there it is. Hopefully, we have addressed all of the pertinent information to make this sale even smoother than the previous four.
