Boycott Bullies

Dear Anheuser-Busch: Bullying can be defined in a myriad of ways. One method of bullying would be to ridicule a group of people due only to their particular preferences, only because those preferences just don’t happen to be yours. I wonder if having become the giant in this industry has blinded your organization to the revolutionary process of beer development that your company was actually once founded upon. Has the once great inventor of a whole new class of beer now become so stale and afraid of innovation that they are now forced to mock those that do innovate? Is your advertisement merely a veiled attempt at reviving your own sense of self worth? We invite the world to join us in raising a glass of true craft ale, and refusing service of any product put forth by a company that looks to belittle those that innovate. Please feel free to list the brewery labels that AB owns so nobody else can accidentally purchase a beer that isn’t meant to be tasted. That is what they were saying right?

Phantom Brew Class

Have you ever wanted to learn to brew your own beer? We have a class for that! Come down this Sunday and check out the first beer of our graduating class! Ask them how easy and fun it was. Classes go for 4 weeks, and teach you the basics of brewing beer. You get to make a beer with the class, take a growler home when it’s done, and enjoy it on tap here with your friends on your final class date. Cost is just $50.

Phantom Brewer This Weekend

This Friday and Saturday we have Hop Wars Round 3 Quarter Finals.

Mark Crisostomo takes his Honey Porter against Ken Heffner’s Mia Maxima Culpa Dubbel on Friday.

Armando takes his Swamp Zombie 2.0 IPA against Jeff Leonard’s Peanut Butter Cup Milk Stout on Saturday.

We’ll be serving great beer and food all weekend long though, so just make it out when you can!
