It sounds like a tiki party of an anniversary to me!  Our Woodburn brewery is growing up too fast, and is turning 1 this month with a party that is looking like it’s going to be a blast (and get fans of the NE IPA style all pumped up).  They’re not only going to be having live music, and some awesome food – but they’re going to be tapping a bunch of variants of their smash hit ‘Hammer’ Session IPA, which I suppose is right where we should start.

The Hammer Variants

As if just having Hammer on tap wasn’t enough to get you guys to show up in a frenzy, the brewery is kicking things up a notch or six with tappings every two hours.  They’ll be deploying 6 new variants of the session IPA all day long for you to swoon over.

  • 12pm – Pineapple Hammer
  • 2pm – Pina Colada Tea Hammer
  • 4pm – Bubble Gum 7Pot Hot Pepper Hammer
  • 6pm – Passion Fruit Hammer
  • 8pm – Lemongrass & Pink Peppercorn Hammer
  • 10pm – Grapefruit Hammer

The Festivities

If you find yourself in their taproom to help them celebrate the occasion, you’ll find a hell of a great time I think. There will be live music all day to go along with the great beer, and if you are hungry – you’re in luck for sure.  There is going to be a pig roast, which means that the food is going to to be “off the chain” as the kids say.
