My Beer Year Author Lucy Burningham Reads & Teaches Beer!

We are so excited to welcome beer writer and Certified-Cicerone Lucy Burningham to our taphouse! She will be reading excerpts from her latest book, My Beer Year, and teaching us about a few things beer-related (i.e. hops, how to taste/experience beer, sensory testing!) that she learned while studying to become cicerone certified!

Lucy will read from her book at 6:30 and 7 pm, have her book available for sale, and will be answering questions and signing books following her readings!

Join us for an evening of craft-beer education, sharing beer together, and meeting local beer-author Lucy Burningham!

About My Beer Year & Lucy Burningham

My Beer Year
Adventures with Hop Farmers, Craft Brewers, Chefs, Beer Sommeliers, and Fanatical Drinkers as a Beer Master in Training

As a journalist spurred by curiosity and thirst, Lucy Burningham made it her career to write about craft beer, traveling to hop farms, attending rare beer tasting parties, and visiting as many taprooms, breweries, and festivals as possible. With this as her introduction, Lucy decided to take her relationship with beer to the next level: to become a certified beer expert. As she studies and sips her way to becoming a Certified Cicerone, she meets an eclectic cast of characters, including brewers, hop farmers, beer sommeliers, pub owners, and fanatical beer drinkers. Her journey into the world of beer is by turns educational, social, and personal—just as enjoying a good beer should be.

Undies for Houston - Undie Drive

fd8c1952-c689-4629-be31-8a5da694abf8.png

One thing we take for granted is underwear, until we don't have them!

There is a major call for undies for those in need in Houston, due to the devastating storm Harvey! We want to do our part so we are holding an UNDIE Drive!

Please bring in new, packaged undies to the taphouse this day! 

NEED - NEW (still in package) underwear. They need a variety of sizes for men, women, boys, and girls, including XXL.

We will donate $1 for every new pair of undies brought into the taphouse to Undies for Everyone, a Houston non-profit working to enhance the self-esteem, dignity, hygiene, and success of Houston's disadvantaged students by providing them clean underwear.

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 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
