Beers in bottles, Festivals in SD and OC and Grad Specials in the Tasting Room — oh my!
Bottles, bottles, we’ve got bottles!
Yep, it’s true — After several weeks of delays, the labels, crowns, bottles and cases all finally arrived in house this week. If you didn’t hear the shouting an celebration in your neck of the woods, the HoBO & Co. fired up Mr Wizard for the first time and packed off five pallets of Vanilla’s Porter! It won’t hit distribution and retail shelves for another couple of weeks, but that’s not stopping us from selling it in the tasting room.
Starting tonight you’ll be able to purchase 22 ounce bottles of fresh, delicious Vanilla’s Porter for just $5/bottle in the tasting room. Drop by and have a taster or two, then pick up a case or three to take home and share with your friends.
Next week the HoBO tells us that we’re packaging Camel Corps, so bottle’s of old One Hump will be joining Vanilla on the shelves for the Memorial Day Holiday weekend. (Pasha’s is getting bottled the week after.)
Tasting Room Specials for Grads
Speaking of reasons to celebrate, for a lot of you, this is the end of the college semester and graduation time. If you’re one of them ed-you-cated grad-yee-ates that’s joining us working folk in the real world, we’ll help you celebrate the beginning of the Rest of Your Life will a graduation special in the tasting room.
This evening, Friday May 17, only bring in your graduation cap and we’ll give you a pint of our celebratory Biere de Mars for just $3! And if that’s not enough, Dang Brother Pizza will be here with their yellow Fire Truck serving up hot, wood fired-pizza for half off!
Weekend of Festivals
Let’s say you’re one of those poor souls who can’t make it to the tasting room this weekend. No worries, the Latitude 33 tap teams are spreading out across Southern California to spread the word on how much better life (and the beer) is on the 33rd Parallel. Here’s where we’ll be:
- North Park Festival of Arts – May 18, 11am to 6pm: Justin’s Lat 33 Tap Team One will be manning the Latitude 33 Booth on the Beer Block down in San Diego’s North Park. They’ll be pouring a Pasha’s Rye Brown and our 1st Anniversary Biere de Mars (if you haven’t had the BdM, get it now — it’ll be gone soon and not back for another year.)
- OC Beer Festival — May 18, 2pm to 6pm: Meanwhile, the HoBO and Lat 33 Tap Team Two will be heading north to Orange County’s Irvine Lake for the OC Beer Festival. We, and several thousand of our closest friends will be up there to promote our impending arrival in LA & OC (look for a formal announcement soon), and pouring Camel Corps Double Hump and Carolina Honey Hips.
North, south or in between, Latitude 33 will have you covered this weekend, so see you there!
