Draft Beer Update 

Continuing our mini flowery beer theme on line 8, Coronado Hibiscus IPA replaced Rock Art Jasmine Pale Ale. I recall really enjoying this one when we had it in last  year.

On line 9, the IPA line, Sierra Nevada Flipside Red IPA replaced Captain Lawrence Imperial IPA. This "red" IPA, a summer seasonal, was a favorite of Victora Corona. And he wasn't alone. I put "red" in scare quotes because aren't IPAs supposed to be red? But it's great so who cares. They had some left over and buying more was an easy favor to do.

Rock Art Jasmine Pale Ale - this sounded very pleasant, so we bought a keg. A hoppy pale ale with jasmine flowers. Should be as pleasant as it sounds.

Woodchuck Private Reserve Pumpkin Cider - if you haven't gotten enough pumpkin beer, or if you've gotten enough pumpkin beer but not enough pumpkin, we've got a pumpkin cider for you.

Spaten Oktoberfest - a traditional Oktoberfest direct from Munich Germany, the home of Oktoberfest.

This Week at the Grey Lodge 

Taco Tuesday: Tuesday is Taco Tuesday from 5pm to midnight. Our kitchen krew comes up with three different tacos every week. Tacos are 3 for $8, mix and match as you like. The current week's selections are updated here every Tuesday afternoon.

Quizzo: Wednesday we have Quizzo at 8pm. This week's Quizmaster is Chris3. As usual Quizzo will be on our 2nd floor.

Weekend Brunch: Saturday and Sunday, we serve Brunch from 10am to 3pm. In addition to our regular brunch menu, Big Dan has a brunch special every weekend. Our regular menu is available too.


Draft Beer Update 

Dock Street Man Full of Pumpkin Porter replaced Evil Genius Trick or Treat. Here we have one pumpkin porter replacing another. Pumpkin porters are big this year. Well in large supply (we have even more yet to tap), whether there's large demand is another story. There should be large demand though, because pumpkin and porter is a great combination.

Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout replaced Sam Adams Hallertau Imperial Pilsner (sixtel). Stone holds an annual homebrewing competition, the champion of which gets their recipe brewed and distributed nationwide. This year’s winner Chris Banker won with a chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, chile pepper, and coffee-infused milk stout was built to mimic the flavors of Mexican hot chocolate. I for one can't wait to try it.

On our IPA line, Founders Centennial IPA replaced Breckenridge Lucky U IPA. This beer is a benchmark IPA and for good reason. Beers don't get any better than this.

Draft Beer Update:

Dock Street A Whiter Shade of Pale Berliner replaced Dock Street Amber Ale. A Berliner Weisse flavored with peaches.
