The fourth year of Craft Beer Golf League is upon us. For the return golfers, thanks for playing again this year, and to the newcomers, we’re excited to have you. Each week we’ll use this blog to highlight some of our weekly beer selections and prizes.
There were some hiccups with the Highlands league so the featured beers that we were supposed to see there will get bumped to next week. We'll have a couple of great IPAs from Bell's and Deschutes.
For the Holmes league this week we'll be featuring our local Zipline Brewing Co. For your included draft beer this week, you'll find Alpha Modern, a hazy session IPA, on tap when you check in. Zipline will also be on-site sampling their brand new Mimosa White.
Each week Moran's Liquor Works will be sponsoring a flag prize in the form of a gift card and growler fills at their tap room. Moran's is the place to go for fantastic selection (including lots of fresh IPAs for the hopheads among us), and the best prices in town. If you've never stopped by, do yourself a favor and drop in for a quick flight, and grab some goodies to take home.
Periodically, we'll have rare beer dinners for randomly selected golfers who check in with the GolfStatus app and use it to track their round (download it free from the app store). Each week we’ll highlight some of the beers that will show up at these dinners. For our first dinner, we'll have a three-year vertical tasting of Parabola from Firestone Walker. This is their flagship Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout from their Proprietor's Reserve collection, and is considered by many to be the best Bourbon Barrel Stout on the market. This year's version was released a few weeks ago, and there should be a few bottles still floating around out there if you put some effort into tracking them down. Our Rare Beer Dinner Sweepstakes winner will be announced in the clubhouse after our rounds each week, or in the emails correspondence that follows each round.
