The Thirsty Beagle: Cheers to Star Wars weekend!

Cheers to Star Wars weekend!

It's Star Wars weekend, so I thought it would be appropriate to re-share the Star Wars-themed beer bottle labels that Mrs. Beagle and I created for the recent Star Wars/Beer art show at The Patriarch.

First, you have Hoth Winter Warmer -- perfect for those -76F nights!

On the other end of the heat spectrum, we have Tatoonie Summer Saison -- made from water sourced from local moisture farms!

And of course we had to represent the dark side, so we created -- what else -- an imperial  stout.

Of course, if you know anything about the Death Star, you'll know why it's pretty funny to say that Alderaan Ale is "no longer in production."

Pints and Pins

-Oak & Ore is continuing its series of Coffee Beer Brunches in December. This Sunday, brunch starts at 11 they'll be giving away dual logo Founders Breakfast Stout/Oak & Ore coffee mugs with the purchase of a FBS pour. They'll follow that up on the Dec. 27 with a dual logo Black Mesa/Oak & Ore mug when you buy a pour of the new Los Naranjos coffee stout.

And one other little nugget of intel on Oak & Ore: Mark your calendar for Jan. 14 for what promises to be an epic one-year anniversary party at the Plaza District venue.

-Marshall Brewing is open from noon to 5 p.m. today for pints and growler fills, before their Ugly Sweater party kicks off and runs 'til 8 p.m. Sounds like quite the festive day!

-Prairie Artisan Ales has announced they will be closed on Christmas Day, but open 1 to 5 p.m. on Dec. 26 (or Boxing Day, as us Canadians know it).

-In case you missed it earlier, Slaughter's Hall is hosting its one-year anniversary party on Saturday, starting at 7 p.m.


  1. This is one of the most astonishing venues that I've attended for my numerous experiences. This place is spot on with the decorations. The overall experience was amazing! Had a fun and comfortable time here.

  2. This place has the most perfect environment, great food, tasty wings, lots of good beer, but best of all - probably the best wait staff in all of country. newcastle stag
