Growler Fill Specials
You’re going to need that growler, and here’s why. We’re offering some pretty cool growler fill specials for American Craft Beer Week. To find out about new kegs being tapped sign up for our Keg Tap Text service. You can always see What’s On Tap? at our website here.
We will be launching more growler fill specials all week this week and next, so stay tuned to our Facebook page for announcements.
First Special, starting today:
Leavenworth Bakke Hill Black Lager Schwartzbier – Growler fill only $6.99 (regularly $11)
Very refreshing and soul lifting, Bakke Hill Black Lager is ideal choice for a lighter beer, but one with depth of color and taste. Bakke Hill Black Lager has an opaque, black color and a full, chocolaty or coffee flavor with a hint of vanilla. Although it shares some similar flavors, this German style is milder tasting and less bitter than British stouts or porters. It is a light to medium-bodied, malt-accented dark brew, very opaque and deep-sepia in color, with a chewy texture and a firm, creamy, long-lasting head. In spite of its dark color, it comes across as a soft and elegant brew that is rich, mild, and surprisingly balanced. 5% , 25 IBUs

Drinkery’s Bottled Beer List
At Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge, we have great beer on tap, but we also have an INCREDIBLE bottled beer list. This includes rare beers, vintage beers, and other specialties not available at retail. The bottled beer list is designed for on-premise consumption, so it is priced accordingly, but you are free to purchase bottles and take them with you. We will be unveiling our Bottled Beer List for American Craft Beer Week. Stay tuned…
Opening the Cellar
Enoteca has an extensive beer cellar. We’ve been aging vintage beers since we started, and we will be opening up the cellar to limited purchasing opportunities during American Craft Beer Week. We are a first-come, first-served type of place, so there will be no bottle limits, just special one-of-a-kind opportunities to acquire rare and vintage aged beers. Stay tuned…
Rare Beer Sharing and Sampling Opportunities
The staff at Enoteca are nuts about Craft Beer. We seem to attract some customers who are nuts about Craft Beer. During ACBW we will be hosting informal Rare Beer Sharing Parties. We’ll announce the times and themes on Facebook an on our website event calendar. What will these entail? We’re going to start by digging into our own Rare Beer collections and bringing bottles to open and share. You’re welcome to come and just taste, but if you like to share you’re also welcome to bring something that is not available in our market or is an older vintage that is no longer available. If you have something you plan to bring and you would like us to announce it, feel free to drop us a line by email and let us know when you’ll be here! Craft Beer is about community, sharing, friendship, and this will be a fun way to participate. Stay tuned…
