Best of Show Party - Lickable Staves

This past weekend we were honored to win BEST OF SHOW for Lickable Staves at the 11th Annual 2017 San Diego International Beer Competition! This Sour Red Ale, aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels with Balaton Cherries, competed with 1,564 entries from 20 countries and 23 states across 57 categories. Lickable Staves won GOLD in the Brett and Other Sour Beer category, along with our other recent foeder aged release Broken Wand Raspberries which took BRONZE in the same category.

We are hosting a Best of Show Celebration Party this Friday, June 23rd starting at 3:30PM to share our excitement with you! We’ll be tapping one of the few remaining kegs of Lickable Staves and we’re pulling out a few cases that we held in reserve. Limit 1 Bottle per Person. The trophy will be on display if you want to snap photos with it; also Liz, Curtis, and the Council Team will be on-hand.

Some fun facts…

The trophy is a fully functioning stainless steel fermenter (about 2 gallons). We plan on brewing a special beer in this fermenter. What beer do you think we should brew? Reply back and let us know!

The trophy is similar to the NHL’s Stanley Cup Trophy in tradition. Each year’s victor gets to keep the trophy until the following year when it gets bequeathed to the next winning brewer. Each winning brewery has their name engraved on the trophy. On Friday, you can check out in person the previous 10 winners engraved on the trophy.

Here are some great deals that will be available this Friday during the celebration party and will continue through the weekend: 
- Buy Any 6 Bottles and Receive a FREE Council Tote Bag
- Buy 12 Bottles and Received 10% off your case purchase + 2 Free Council Tote Bags
- Buy a 3rd Anniversary Biere de Miel Bottle and receive a free Anniversary Glass (can be part of the 6 or 12 bottle deal above)

We hope to see you Friday!
