Free Flip Friday!

This Friday July 3rd we are ringing in our country’s independence by putting all of our pinball machines on free play!

Come in and get some watermelon wheat, ginger saison, or any of our 13 beers on tap and flip til your fingers hurt!

Great way to get some practice in…and as an added bonus…if you get a Grand Champion #1 score on any of our machines we will buy you a beer!

Two Year Anniversary this weekend!

Well, technically we have been in business for longer than that, but we are celebrating two years in our Beaver Falls location this weekend!

Never did I think our first two years would be this successful.  We brewed significantly more beer in our second year than our first and each week we get new fans of the brewery which is great to see.

There won’t be any fancy events for this…we anticipated making it two years (Although many people told me I’d be lucky to make it six months) and we anticipate making it many more.

We will however take the opportunity to thank all of our patrons with a few special deals this weekend.

First – We are tapping a new beer to kick off the thanks (we do this every week but this one is SPECIAL).  One of our regulars (Ian) had the idea for a really punch you in the mouth Ginger Saison…so that’s what we did…we added 7 pounds of Ginger to our latest saison and to say thanks, we are taking a $1 off a pint all weekend.  I get ideas from patrons all of the time and while most small business owners hate to hear “Ya know what you need to do,” I actually enjoy it.

Second – We couldn’t have made the move to a new building without the support of our early fans.  Without your feedback over the years we never would have been able to make this happen.  So to say THANKS to the early fans of Beaver Brewing, I mean the Patterson fans of Beaver Brewing, we are offering $5 off a fill (1 per customer) if you bring in your old school growler (the old glass ones) with a Beaver Brewing logo on it.

Again, thank you for all the past support and your continued support.  I greatly appreciate it!

Obnoxiously Hopped IPA on Tap this Friday!

I am pretty sure we haven’t done the same IPA twice at the brewpub since we opened in Beaver Falls 2+ years ago.  To keep up with that trend we are tapping the Obnoxiously Hopped IPA this Friday.

Guess what, it’s hoppy.  I think the name says it all.  We added nearly 3 pounds of hops to this batch…A mixture of Galaxy and Citra hops went into the boil and we dry hopped it with Galaxy for a potent aroma and flavor.

If you are a citrusy hoppy beer fan, Friday should be your drinking day this weekend.

Balls, Brews, and Cruise!

This Saturday is Balls, Brews, and Cruise at the brewery!  The Beaver Falls Car Cruise is Saturday June 13th.  We open our doors at 11:30 and stay open a bit later than our normal 10pm to accommodate the car cruise crowd.

We also are serving The Ball Joint at the brewery!  Our favorite BF eatery is moving the operation into the brewery for the day so you’ll be able to eat up all the balls you can handle!

Stop in for the fun, food, beer, and of course the cars!

French Biere De Garde coming back soon

One of the more popular beers at the brewery is coming back this week or next (as soon as the Golden Shower kicks).  The French Biere De Garde is a very clean beer made with a seasonal yeast and 100% French Strisselspalt Hops.  It provides a smooth, almost creamy, floral beer.  Not hoppy at all, and perfect for hot weather.

Check us out on facebook.com/Beaverbrewingcompany or on twitter @beaverbrewing to find out EXACTLY when we tap it.

Thank You…

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone that has bought one of my books over the years.

Three years ago I wrote “A Brewers Guide to Opening a Nanobrewery” to share my experiences in opening the Beaver Brewing Company in a 500 square foot hole in the wall tucked away in the residential section of Patterson Township. My goal was to offer tips and help people meet their goals and open their own brewery.

Today I was truly humbled to receive a message that said the book has sold over 20,000 copies since it was written! 20,000…that number still amazes me. There are less than 3,000 breweries in the US and over 20,000 people are interested in opening a Nanobrewery…amazing!

I was hoping one person would learn something from the book. Now that number is in the thousands.

There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t get an email from someone saying thanks for writing the book…In a million years I never anticipated that. Now it is a part of my daily routine to answer each and every one of those emails. Most people think those messages annoy me. They open with something like “sorry to bother you,”….They don’t bother me, in fact I enjoy getting them. I just want to help future brewery owners out.

I know if I had that kind of help in the beginning my life would have been MUCH easier. I did however have some great friends and family that encouraged me throughout the process and that was easily the most important key to me being where I am today.

Just remember…if an idiot like me with no brewery experience, no restaurant experience, and no experience ever owning his own business can do it…you can too.

Again, if you you have bought the book, THANK YOU. As always, if you learned something, opened your brewery, or are close to opening after reading it please shoot me a message. Always enjoy hearing about your journey and how you got there!

Beer Cheese Dip tonight and tomorrow only!

We made some Beer Cheese Dip with a beer I got from my friend in Baltimore, Kasey Turner.  He owns Jailbreak Brewing Company and we used their Welcome to Scoville Jalapeno IPA in our beer cheese recipe…in a word…amazing.  Perfect Combo.

It will be around today and maybe into Saturday…we ran out Thursday night but made more today!
