First off, let’s all hear it for ‘Merica and the Olympics kicking off. It’s the only time of the year where people find themselves thoroughly entranced with whether or not the 118 lb girl from Kazakhstan can clean and press 280 lbs (she can, FYI) or who will come home with the Air Rifle gold?
We are celebrating by brewing up a double batch of our XLCR Pale Ale today, which will COMPLETELY fill our tanks for the first time in our brief history. That’s 240 1/2 bbl kegs just waiting to get out to people of the greater Excelsior area. It’s a beautiful thing.
For those participating in the Tour de Tonka, make sure to look out for our guys volunteering at the event. We’re jacked to see some local bike action, hopefully we’ll spot an Excelsior Brewing Co. bike jersey or two in the crowd (now available for purchase in the brewery, FYI).
Anyone in Minneapolis will have a shot to sample some of our brews next Sunday at the Inaugural Minnesota Food Truck Fair. Those unfamiliar with our downtown food truck scene are missing out, there are PHENOMENAL items to sample. Of course, nothing goes better with food trucks than craft beer. Check out the info here: http://www.mnfoodtruckfair.com
Taproom hours this week are Thursday and Friday from 4-10 and Saturday 2-10, with tours from 12-2. Hopefully we won’t be too tired from staying up all night watching Olympic Badminton. Cheers!
