Stop by and taste BrewDog's rare and extremely potent beers at Birch and Barley

Its Thanksgiving week which means a short work week and snow for people in Seattle- a rare occurrence, I might add. This weekend I warmed up with some Firestone Walker Double Jack, Stone‘s 2008 Russian Imperial Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout (unreal), The Bruery‘s Autumn Maple Strong Ale and Upright‘s 5 Rye Saison. But now for your week in beer!

Black Friday: Chicago, Illinois

10:00AM-12:00PM @ Goose Island Cylbourn

Join Goose Island on Black Friday for a special preview of the much anticipated Rare Bourbon County Brand Stout. The Goose Island Clybourn Brewpub will be tapping a few barrels of the Rare that morning at 10am. Once it’s gone, it’s gone and we expect it will sell out fast. Aside from this special tapping the only time you’ll see Rare Bourbon County Brand Stout on draft will be at select beer festivals and promotional Goose Island events in the future.

Portland & New York: On Deck

The artistry continues inside at Old Lompoc's Sidebar, attached to the brewing space. Try some damn good barrel-aged brew here.

Unfortunately, the BB crew has to maintain employment at real jobs. So we apologize for the lack of material this Monday. We promise to make up for it with some great content on Tuesday.

On Deck – BeerBlotter.com release installment #2 of its New York Beer Chronicles, which includes visits to Blind Tiger, Gingerman, Rattle N Hum (Again), d.b.a., Spuyten Duvil, and Mugs Alehouse.

Also, BeerBlotter.com’s run through Portland. This trip we tried to hit some of the outlying grog houses, including Concordia Alehouse, Lompoc’s Sidebar, Hopworks Urban Brewery, Beermongers, Eastburn, Upright Brewing, and of course – a stop at Belmont Station, Horse Brass, and Bailey’s Taproom (sneak preview: Horse Brass still the best).

So check back tomorrow to read up and meet some of the great people we met along the way (thanks Cody @ HorseBrass and Patrick @ Lompoc).
