Clementine Lemon Thyme has been on tap for a couple weeks now, and is receiving it’s fair share of acclaim. As the temperature goes up over the next several weeks (hopefully), this beer will taste more and more refreshing. We will try to keep this beer on tap for the entire summer, so you should be able to get some. It is also the beer of the month at all of the Aubrie’s locations for the month of May.
Another great event coming up that features Liberty Street beer is our beer dinner being hosted at Grand Trunk Pub on April 20th. There are only 40 tickets available for this event, and I will try to get some to sell here if people let me know they are interested – otherwise, they are available at Grand Trunk Pub. Here is the menu;

We have been seeing a good increase in the number of trivia players the last couple of weeks, and hope to be filling the place completely very soon. It is a lot of fun to play, and it is free – you can even win prizes. We have been allowing players an additional 10% off their entire bill, so come down and play – if you think you’re smart enough.
This Friday the 8th, we welcome Social Bones back to the Upper Hall at 9pm. Come see the best live show in town! Saturday night, at the same time, Dragon Wagon comes to Liberty Street and brings a great show as well. Either night, or both nights of entertainment are sure to be well worth your attendance. Please come down and support your local entertainers and your local brewery.
Oh, and a few more beer items… On April 13th we will release Wheat & Rye ESB. This was a traditional English Special Bitter – until we got to it. With additions of wheat and rye malts, we increase the complexity of what would normally be a very unassuming beer. If that wasn’t enough, we are also bottling a small portion of the 42nd Parallel Imperial IPA with a special commemorative label for our beer dinner with the Grand Trunk Pub on the 20th. At the same time at Liberty Street (for those who couldn’t join us for dinner), we will release 42nd Parallel on tap. There may be a few bottles available for purchase in the pub if we don’t sell out at Grand Trunk, so look for yours because this will be a very rare find.
And speaking of rare, we also bottled a special reserved batch of Tart Cherry Porter from our award winning batch and aged it on toasted French oak chips for two years. The resulting beer will be available in Cobalt blue 1 liter flip top bottles when the labels are completed. Again, this is incredibly rare (only 65 bottles), and will only be available at the pub while supplies last.
We are currently planning our inaugural Liberty Trash Grab to clean up our neighborhood and the Rouge River basin. Friends of the Rouge and Liberty Street are teaming up and you can help while having fun. Join us with your bicycle at 8am on April 16th to register, we will deploy from the brewery at 9am and ride the area to pick up trash that has been exposed as the winter snow banks melt. Collected trash will be weighed in between 11 and noon to determine the top three ‘collectors’ who will be awarded with annual Mug Club memberships, and the person with the most trash gets a growler filled with delicious Liberty Street craft beer. Volunteers will be given a breakfast bar (made with beer ingredients) before the ride and a hot dog after the ride, as well as $1 off the first pint purchased.
