We have so many damn amazing beer-oriented events booked here in the next few days so we are calling it the Bridgeport Craft Beer Week! Enjoy some exclusive beers, a launch party for Oskar Blues Brewery, a Craft Beer Boat ticket giveaway, tons of fresh harvest ales and pumkin beers will be tapped. And the Iron Brew Competition rounds up the weekend. As a finale we are tapping that 120 minute barrel that has been sitting in our basement. Enjoy!

Stone Best By Tapping
7pm – til its gone.
We are very pleased to serve a half barrel of Stone’s ” Enjoy by 09.21.12 IPA” . It’s a Double IPA with an ABV: 9.4% and it was barreled on: 08.17.12. This is the freshest beer from Stone we have ever served.
Here is Stone’s description:
“You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers – especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs – we’ve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. We’ve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that you’re getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isn’t randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. Instead, we’ve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.”
