We’ll be celebrating ten years here later in 2014. We feel like now is a good time to take a step back from the mad rotating draft handles, chasing after shiny new beers like some cat chasing a laser. We do a great job of getting exciting new beers into the mix, but we also think it’s critical to provide a platform for those beers that have proven themselves with us and our customers over time — the classics.
Starting April 1 you can count on us for Three Floyds Gumballhead, Allagash White, Half Acre Heyoka 0r Akari Shogun and Firestone Walker Pivo Pils. You can enjoy them in a Pint or a 10 oz Pour. EVERY. DAMN. DAY.
Starting in April we’ll also be introducing two new concepts, both with the aim of creating an even stronger connection with the breweries we love.
First up, introducing the Brewer’s Bill of Fare. This new Prix Fixe Tasting Menu from Chef Justin White will be available from 5-11pm every night along with our regular menu. The menu will be built around a flight of four beers from the month’s featured brewery. So it’s a beer dinner at your pace. No speeches. No high dollar tickets. Just great food paired with great beer for a very reasonable price. All on your terms. It’s a beer dinner you can have any time you want.
Our second concept is even bigger. We’ll kick off each month’s brewery partnership with a Pop-up Taproom featuring great beers, guest bartenders from the brewery, glassware giveaways, special playlists, wall art and anything else the brewery wants to do to share their culture and make the bar theirs for the night. Pop-up Taproom is a way to introduce the new featured beers of the month, roll out the month’s new Brewer’s Bill of Fare menu AND bring the vibe of the brewery to SmallBar Division for the night.
The Brewer’s Bill of Fare will kick off on Monday, April 14 during our first Pop-up Taproom event with Penrose Brewing from Geneva, Illinois as they launch their first beers into the market.
After that, we’ll be featuring Pop-up Taprooms and the month-long Brewer’s Bill of Fare menus with:
- Thursday, May 1 @ 6pm we host Allagash Brewing for “The Maine Event” with 6 great beers, a raffle for a package of specialty bottles, guest bartenders and more.
- Tuesday, June 3 @ 6pm it’s Stone Brewing’s turn to bring a little taste of Escondido California to us here hosted by Head Brewer Mitch Steele and featuring some rare bits from the Stone cellar.
- Wednesday, July 2 @ 6pm we bring on Perennial Artisanal Ales from St. Louis with guest bartenders, a chance to win tickets to Belgian Fest and much more!
