This week marks the beginning of Intuition Ale Works’ fourth anniversary celebration. During the week there will be a number of special events and one-off releases to celebrate with everything culminating on Saturday, November 22 at the brewery for a huge bash.
As has been the custom over the past four years with the brewery, guests can purchase beer “Passports” that will be stamped each time one of the special brews is drunk. Try 20 or more of the special brews and you earn a growler of beer and can register to win a $100 tap room credit. Only 100 passports will be printed, so if you want to participate, get to the tap room Tuesday, November 18 at 3:00 p.m. to grab yours.
Some of the beers to try include:
Tuesday, November 18: State Line w/ Habanero
Wednesday, November 19: Cantaloupe Saison w/ Cracked Pepper
Thursday, November 20: Smoke IPA w/ Pineapple
Friday, November 21: Golden Graham Jon Boat
Each beer will only be available the day it is released and Saturday the 22nd when all the beers will be available in the brewery and tap room.
In addition to special beers, the brewery will be featured at a number of special events throughout the area. These events include a Belgian beer dinner at Black Sheep Restaurant, a beer and cheese pairing, tap takeovers and a special brunch as dinner event at Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails.
