The holiday isn’t over in countries like Canada and England, so get up early and stop by the Memphis Taproom!

of the best Holiday & Seasonal Ales from around the world.
As in years past, in addition to celebrating great beer, we’ll be celebrating the true spirit of Boxing Day by collecting canned food and gently used winter coats and warm blankets for donation to local organizations that distribute to families in need.
Earn $1 OFF EACH BEER you have by bringing
in a coat, a blanket, or 3 cans* of food!
(*The goal is to collect cans of food that is nourishing. Please, not just any old can of water chestnuts from the back of your cupboard!)
Christmas and Winter beers will rotate steadily
throughout the day and will include:
Burton Bridge Bitter (on the engine)
DuPont Avec Les Bons Voeux
Allagash Fluxus 2010
De Ranke Pere Noel
Hitachino Red Rice Ale
De Dolle Oerbier

Not to mention the following casks, poured off the edge of the bar:
Hannsen’s Oude Gueuze
Rare Franconian Lager

We are neighboring states, we enjoy beer together and make good beer together, but tonight at Elysian Brewing Co.’s Capital Hill location, Washington beers will be up against Oregon beers at Seattle Beer Week event, Firkin Firkin. All beers will be in cask conditioned firkins.
Drum Roll Please: the Firkin Firkin match ups are…..
Look out for the top competitors from both states (Pelican Brewing Co.- go there someday; Black Raven Brewin Co- WA Rookie of the Year; Double Mountain- quality brews and Fremont Brewing Co.- the Center of the Universe)and no matter where you are from, remain unbias- good beer is good beer!
May the best city win!!!
Tonight Beer Blotter hangs with some of the best brewers in the USA at East meets West- more on our encounter with beer royalty later!!
