Spend Black Friday with Pint Defiance!

on Fri, 11/22/2013 - 02:57

Shopping is dangerous on Black Friday. You run the risk of being trampled, gouged, poked, maimed, and shoved. Personally, we at Pint Defiance don’t get it, which is why we are hosting our own Black Friday celebration to serve as a refuge from the crowds. We’ll have the seasonally appropriate Elysian Men’s Room Black and Deschutes Abyss on draft for pints and growler fills. And we’ll have bottles of the highly sought-after Goose Island Bourbon County.

You can even get a head start on your Christmas shopping. We have awesome shirts and beer glasses, growlers and gift certificates.

Last week I had the honor of attending Sierra Nevada Beer Camp. Beer Camp is basically the “Golden Ticket” brewery tour to trump all other brewery tours! The brewery designed this program as a way to build & strengthen relationships with others in the beer community.  We were given access to all facets of their operation; Production, packaging, warehousing, research & development, pilot programs, cellars, sustainability programs, hop farm, hop and grain storage, yeast lab, quality assurance, sensory lab, brewpub, and more.
