Bluesapalooza Time ~
It's our favorite time of year.... Bluesapalooza Time! That's right our good friends at Mammoth Brewing are gearing up to host the 19th annual Blues and Brews fest known as Bluesapalooza. If you don't know about this mindbottling experience, drop everything you're doing, locomotor as able, and get to Mammoth Lakes.... NOW! Basically three days (this weekend) of amazing music accompanied by one million craft breweries (*not really one million, but it's a good round number), and some phenomenal food. Check the intraweb for more info - http://mammothbluesbrewsfest.com/
Tragically the June Lake Brewing tasting room will be closed this Saturday August 2nd to facilitate the sharing of JLB Super Awesome Beer with the world (or maybe just the couple thousand people in attendance) at the infamous Bluesapalooza Grand Tasting.
Stop the press... JLB has started distribution and will be available starting 5pm tonight, July 31st, 2014 at Clocktower Cellar - www.clocktowercellar.com - across from the Mammoth Village Gondola below the Alpenhof Lodge. Our first four beers will be available, so get them while you can cuz supplies have been dwindling due to the overwhelming traffic we've been getting at our tasting room.
In other JLB news we had a killer turnout for the June Lake Music Festival last weekend, and look forward to working with the organizers to have an even better event next year. Thanks to everyone that came out!
As indicated we got a little crazy over the last couple weeks and busted out another eight 15bbl batches, filling our four 30bbl conicals with the following JLB goodness:
- 30bbl Archimedes Imperial Red (RIP Tyson)
- 30bbl Hutte Double IPA (can you say 11% ABV?)
- 30bbl Silver Lake Saison (at 3.5% ABV it makes up for the Hutte)
- 30bbl Deer Beer Brown (it always goes down smooth)
- 1bbl Kilmister Ginger Beer (*stay tuned for special release)
You've been asking and we're restocking. That's right we're expecting new shirts and hats in multiple colors, along with replenishments of our ever popular double wall/insulated stainless steel growlers and stainless steel pint glasses. Also we've ordered some super jazzy growler koozies, so stay tuned for arrival/availability announcements.
