Don’t know what to bring to Thanksgiving dinner? Send an SOS to the Tours & Rec Center! Our latest Brewhouse One Series release, Messenger in a Bottle, is washing ashore Wednesday, November 21st. This double mash imperial stout rested on Guatemalan coffee beans roasted by our friends at Messenger Coffee and whole Madagascar vanilla beans, after being aged not once — but twice! — in fresh J. Rieger’s Kansas City Whiskey barrels. This isn’t your grandma’s after-dinner coffee.
12oz bottles of Messenger in a Bottle will be available exclusively in the Boulevard Tours & Rec Center Gift Shop beginning at 11am on Wednesday, November 21st. Individual bottles will be $12 with four-packs of 12oz bottles available for $40. Draft pours will also be available in our Beer Hall for $5 for 5oz.
Operation Breakthrough, our charitable partner for this Brewhouse One Series release, will receive $1 from every 12oz bottle sold ($4 from every four-pack!) to benefit the work they do toward providing a safe, loving and educational environment for children in poverty and empowering families through advocacy, emergency aid, and education.
We’ll celebrate this latest beer for our friends and neighbors with a happy hour at the Tours & Rec Center on Wednesday from 4-6pm! Join us in our first-floor Experience Area for complimentary samples of the beer, and sweet treats provided by Ibis Bakery. Our friends at Messenger Coffee will be hanging out to discuss the collaboration and perk you up with coffee samples, and we’ll also offer 12oz bags of their Guatemalan roast in our Gift Shop (for those of you who want to be the most popular guest at Thanksgiving). Our partners Operation Breakthrough will also be on hand to discuss the important work they do. Come start your holiday with us!
We’ll also kick off a donation drive for Operation Breakthrough on Wednesday, and will gather pantry and new and used items for children and their families through November 30th. Donations will be rewarded! Please see below for a list of acceptable donation items.
