Now sitting a couple weeks out from Oktoberfest, we are back to business as usual. Some fun facts about our October 13th celebration that you may or may not know:
– The ICA raised over $1,000 at the Hammerschlagen booth
– Bring It! Studios raised $1,200 for breast cancer patients at Ridgeview Medical Center
– Maynards and Patisserie Margo raised $2,000 combined for the Excelsior Fireworks Fund
– Over 35 kegs of beer were consumed throughout the day by over 2,500 people
It was a helluva day, so humbled by the turnout and the atmosphere. We’re psyched to do it again in 355 days or so, but until then, it’s onwards and upwards!
Coming up next month we will be participating, as a brewery, in Movember. For those unfamiliar with the project, head on over to http://www.movember.com/ and check it out. The idea is to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues like prostate cancer by sporting mustaches throughout the month of November. We are selling mustache pint glasses in the taproom all month long, all proceeds will be donated to our Movember page (to donate directly, go to http://us.movember.com/team/554689). If you would like to join the team, we would love to have you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get an invite, and more importantly, a great reason to sport a mustache all month long!
For the foodies out there, we are excited to announce our first ever beer dinner at Eat Shop! There will be four courses available, featuring our beers as the centerpiece. We will be drinking Big Island Blond, XLCR Pale Ale, Bitteschläppe Brown Ale and our NEW Mr. Jimmy Cherry Baltic Porter. It’s going to be a great time with some AMAZING food and beer. Details on tickets to follow, but it will be taking place November 13th. So be ready!\
Our taplines are growing like crazy right now, to see everywhere you can drink and Excelsior Brew head to excelsiorbrew.com/locations. We are especially excited to head on down to Edina for our launch at The Pig and Fiddle on November 15th! We will be selling flights and hanging out in a great beer environment. If you haven’t made your way to P&F yet, you are missing out on a knowledgeable and friendly staff, stellar food and most importantly great beer!
Until next time, cheers!
