Posted by John Eckhart Posted on Oct - 09 - 2013


sculpin-ipaDear Enotecans,

Quick Reminder: Today is Whiskey Wednesday1/2 off all Scotch, Bourbon, Rye and Whiskey!

Thursday: Trivia Night starts at 7pm!  Lots of fun, win prizes, more details below.

Saturday: Hoptoberfest Party!  All things Hoppy starting 7pm Saturday!

Thursday: Free Ballast Point Beer Tasting 5-7pm

Join us for an excellent Ballast Point beer tasting event!

Ballast Point is the maker of Sculpin, a 100 point top tier IPA.  Sculpin is currently engaged in a Beer War vs. No-Li Jet Star IPA.

On Thursday, October 10th, from 5-7pm, Alison Atkins will be on hand to pour free samples of Ballast Point beers including:

Ballast Point Sculpin Imperial IPA, Ballast Point Amber, Ballast Point Dorado Double IPA, Ballast Point Sea Monster Imperial Stout, and Ballast Point Victory at Sea Imperial Porter.

Come by to try them for free while supplies last, and enjoy a pint of Sculpin on tap, or fill a growler if you’re brave.  If you’re up for a Beer War, order the Beer War from the bar tender, and he will serve you the Sculpin and Jet Star blind, so you can vote on your favorite without knowing which is which!

No tickets required, this is a drop-in event.

Hoptoberfest Beer Wars: Sculpin vs. Jet Star


Starting Today, Jet Star vs. Sculpin.  Come try them both *blind* and cast your vote for your favorite by flavor.  We will announce the winner via Facebook.  We’ll run this Beer War for 1 week.  Jet Star has been knocking them down left and right, but can the local Spokane brand defeat Sculpin, a 100 point beer?

One of the funnest things to do with specialty beverages is a blind tasting.  Let’s look at just the beer. Forget price and brand. Let your taste buds do the voting!

During Hoptoberfest, we will be presenting some Versus battles of Craft Beer.  This Beer War for Hoptoberfest is two big IPAs.  Both are On Tap and ready to try!  You will try them both and vote for your favorite.  At the end of the night we’ll tally the votes and announce the winner, and reveal which one was which.  We’ll make the announcement on our Facebook page.

Undercard Match: Gentlemen Duke It Out

These are not hoppy beers, they’re two beers made exactly the same way, but one is aged on Bourbon Barrels and the other is aged on New Oak Spirals.  Come try them both and cast your vote!


After Beer Tasting: Trivia Night!
