From Damien & Maria:
Happy 2009! It is very exciting to be starting out a new year at OFBC. It is also thrilling to imagine all the new beers that will be made and consumed in 2009! Cheers to that thought!
For the past few weeks we had a “name that beer” competition. The ale is an easy drinking british mild, light bodied but dark and malty, a low alcohol session ale. The name that was chosen is sensessionale! We did have some suggestions that we would like to share with you, hoping that it brings a smile to your face as they did for us: “Thomas had a big brown beaver ale”, “I’m not larry ale”, “what the ale”, and “braveheart ale – long live William Wallace” and some others that aren’t fit to print! A big ‘Thank you’ goes out to everyone who tried to “name that beer”.
At OFBC we are working hard on getting our eight taps filled, though it is easier said than done, due to the rate of consumption exceeding the rate of fermentation and conditioning. The beers that are in the process of being brewed or in fermentation are: Old Forge Alt, T-Rail Pale Ale, and Sensessionale.
We have started to have live music at the pub. If you know of any local musician (or you yourself have a hidden talent that you would want to share) please email or call and let us know! We had trivia questions on New Year’s Eve night, which was a huge hit, which leads us to investigating that as an idea as well.
Martha has started our weekly specials, which have been scrumptious! Martha continues to incorporate the beers we have on tap into her food dishes creating quite the palate pleaser.
We hope the New Year brings everyone happiness, good health, and good beers to be drank!
