Brothers Cascadia Beer Release Night

Join us for an imperfectly perfect night of jamming on the ukulele and drinking the new Imperfectly Perfect Pineapple Pale Ale brewed by Brothers Cascadia releasing this night!

Here's the RAD beer description...

Imperfectly Perfect Pineapple Pale Ale
6.2%

“Don’t judge a book by its cover”, a mantra that Imperfect Produce has applied to some of the awesome food that is grown for us (but maybe just not as pretty). They take the delicious, awesome crops that farmers are growing, but are just a little too “ugly” and sell it to people for 30%-50% less than grocery stores. To help drive the point that “ugly” produce is delicious, we brewed a pale ale and used 200 lbs of “imperfect” pineapples. The result is a mouthwatering, tropical libation. Denali hops help accentuate the pineapple and drive the fruity aroma. Imperfection is not only beautiful, but also delicious!

OTHER DETAILS!!! Brothers Cascadia will be in the house rocking on their ukuleles! Carol of our very own Ukes in the Couve will be jamming too! Bring yours to jam with them, if you want....NOT REQUIRED! ;-)  

ALSO, there will be a UKULELE GIVEAWAY RAFFLE!!!! Buy tickets to win the ukulele that is locally made by Phil Baus .... and the proceeds will go to Bridge the Gap, a local non-profit organization helping foster children experience firsts! More details below! 

Bridge the Gap (a 501c3 non profit organization) has enabled many children in foster care to experience "firsts" - to receive Christmas presents or have a birthday celebration, to receive new clothes, to play a sport, to receive tutoring, to attend summer camp or to excel at a special skill because they received needed attention, training and affirmation.

Brews 'N Write-In - August Meet-Up

Calling all Writers!

This monthly “write-in” is a great way to hone your writing skills, embrace the benefits of free-writing, write that story you’ve always wanted to write, and set aside a time to write ….your blog posts, your poems, the start of your book …..all the while sipping on a craft beer/cider/wine to spur your creativity!

For those who might be hesitant or who discover writer’s block in the moment, we will have a writing topic/exercise that you will be able to write about if nothing else is coming to you!

Our format will be 25-10-25-10. We write for twenty five minutes, talk for 10, then repeat! If people want to stay beyond this time, for writing, connecting and having pints together, everyone is welcome to do so!

This group meets monthly. While this group is casual and relaxed, we do want people to have the space and time to write so we will get quickly settled in and then get to writing right off the bat. Please arrive early to get a beer and food!

This group is to motivate, inspire like-minded people to put pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard to write those stories who’ve always wanted to get into the world!

And it’s a great way to meet others who love to write and get the inspiration you need to get to Write-In!

We hope you will join us for our 6th  Brews 'N Write-In!

Ukulele Night with Andrew Molina

Mike loves the Ukulele! We NOW have Ukes in the Couve Jam Sessions on the first Tuesday of each month for those who love jamming and meeting new friends who 'uke'!

And now....

We are hosting Andrew Molina AGAIN!

He's straight from Kihei, Maui! He's bringing his talents to the West Coast and stopping by Final Draft Taphouse for a special performanace (21+). He will be accompanied by his father Jay Molina on guitar!

Doors at 6:30 p.m.
First set: 7:00 p.m.
Second set: 8:00 p.m.

Andrew's website: www.andrewmolinaukulele.com

Andrew has been named at one of the FIVE artists to watch by Ukulele Magazine! 

http://www.ukulelemag.com/stories/the-next-jake-5-up-and-coming-hawaiian-artists-to-watch

Andrew started playing the ukulele when he was 13 years old and hasn't looked back. His love and passion of this little instrument shows in his playing and song writing ability. His first CD entitled "The Beginning" on which he composed eight of the 11 songs was a finalist in the "Ukulele Album of the Year" category at the 2014 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. 

A few of his songs have been used in a promotional video for Ocean Vodka, and his original song "E Ho'i Ke Aloha" was selected for an upcoming movie shot in Hawaii. One of his music videos has also been selected for a promotional video for Hawaiian Airlines.

His second CD "A New Journey" was just released last Fall (2017) and Andrew composed 10 of the 14 songs on it and he has a few special friends and ukulele masters performing along with him including Jake Shimabukuro, Kalei Gamiao and Craig Chee.

Andrew's music is a mix of pop, Hawaiian, rock, latin and a little bit of jazz.

Come for some pints and tunes!

Cheers! Mahalo! 
Kimberly & Mike
