Full Sail Brewing To Keg Session Lagers

There had been talk of this happening for a while now. It's nice to see it's actually happening!

From newsletter ~

Make room in your kegerator and brush off your favorite bar's stool because Session and Session Black kegs will be available in the PNW as of May 1 and in Colorado as of June 1.

Over 8 years Session has garnered a lot of love. With so many fans we will be releasing the kegs with limited availablity at first. But don't fret, we will start shipping kegs to more and more locations as soon as we can. Delayed gratification is a good thing! Session Fest will be released on draft for the Holiday season.

Why have a beer when you could have a Session?

To celebrate this glorious release we are hosting a series of events:

Monday April 29th, 5PM Full Sail Tasting Room and Pub, Hood River, Oregon - Toast, followed by a Rock Paper Scissors Tournament.

Tuesday April 30th, 5-7PM The Horse Brass Pub in Portland, Oregon, Session Kick Off Toast & Tapping. Executive Brewmaster Jamie Emmerson will be in the house.

Wednesday, May 8th, 5PM The Attic Alehouse in Madison Park, Seattle, Wa

Thursday, May 9th 4-7PM Mukilteo Lodge, Mukilteo, Wa - Session Kick Off Release Party

Friday, May 10th, 5-8PM, Alehouse Pub, Tacoma, Wa - Session Kick Off Release Party / Brewers Night

Friday, June 7th at 5PM to 9PM, Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver Colorado, Session Kick Off Toast and Tapping

Guest Post: Jake Metzler Looks at the Health Benefits of Home Brewing

Author Bio: Jake Metzler is a home brewer and a writer. Since both of those are difficult to make a living off of, he combines the two to write for Midwest Supplies, a provider of beer brewing supplies and kits.

Long have the benefits of drinking beer in moderation been touted by scientists seeking a lightly controversial topic. Beer has more nutrients than wine. Beer can help reduce risk of heart problems kidney stones, arthritis, and even certain types of cancer (but what doesn’t either prevent cancer, cause it, or both these days?).

Brewvana Brewery Tours Celebrates Second Anniversary

From Brewvana's Facebook page ~ This April marks the 2nd Anniversary of Brewvana Brewery Tours and we’re throwing a party to celebrate. The free event is being hosted by Base Camp Brewing, located at 930 SE Oak Street, Friday, April 5th from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. 

Come help celebrate the first two years of Brewvana, and many more to follow, with “Pin the Pow” on buses Angel and Rosie, bobbing for apples and beer, DJ, raffle and fun! The trifecta of great beer, people and music will be enhanced by a raffle for a variety of swag and a grand prize of an all-inclusive, six-person, private Brewvana tour. The event is free and open to the public; minors are welcome.

What an incredible two years it been. We've had the privilege to ride with Brewvana on several of their tours. Each and everyone a memorable experience. If you haven't been on a tour, what's stopping you? So make it on down to Base Camp, we hope to see you there!
