Beers of the Month
New Year’s means New Beers at The Bar On Buena….
Our Featured Beer Style for January: Belgian and Belgian Style Ales. We’ll be bringing you a rotating line-up of Belgian type beers all January long. Sure, it’s a rather broad category, but that allows us to dabble in a lot of delicious beer. Expect to see some American Craft versions in the Belgian category as well as some traditional Belgian ales, a few of which have been idly passing time in our ‘cellar.’
Our Featured Brewery of the Month: Penrose Brewing Co. Since launching in 2013, Penrose Brewing Company (Geneva, IL) has been specializing in crafting traditional Belgian-style Ales. You name it, they do it well: Belgian Single Ales, Belgian Dubbel Ales, Saison-style Ales, Belgian IPA’s, Belgian Dark Ales, Belgian Pale Ales… all fit in perfectly with our Style of the Month.
NORTH COAST BREWING AND THE B.O.B. CELEBRATE RASPUTIN’S BIRTHDAY: THURSDAY, JANUARY 22nd, 7PM: Poor misunderstood Rasputin, Russian peasant, mystical faith healer, private adviser to the Russian Romanov Dynasty and all around mysterious dude. He certainly made some enemies due to his influence over Tsar Nicholas II, and as a result, he was stabbed, poisoned and shot. Celebrate Rasputin’s birthday, January 22, as we don beards and tap a barrel of North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout Nitro. Flaunt your whiskers (real or fake) and raise a glass to that bearded badass Grigori Rasputin. He died hard, but lived harder.
PENROSE BREWING APPRECIATION NIGHT, TUESDAY, JANUARY 29th, 7PM Join us as we tap a selection of Penrose Brewing brews and show our appreciation for all the hard work they put in to making such great Belgian inspired beers. The line-up is still TBD. Friend us on FB or follow us on Twitter for updates.
CRAFT SPIRIT OF THE MONTH: A NIGHT OF ANGEL’S ENVY BOURBON & RYE THURSDAY, JANUARY 29th, 7PM January brings you our first in a monthly feature focusing on a particular craft spirits brand. We’re kicking things off with Angle’s Envy, blenders who have returned to the art of craft-first hand blended batches of 8 to 12 barrels that are painstakingly nurtured through the aging process and finished in port or rum casks. This results in some truly delicious whiskey, worthy of a special night of flights, nips and pints and cocktails in their honor.
