Ramen Returns

Ramen Shop pop ups have been absent from Hashigo Zake for a couple of months now, as the guys were set up a physical Ramen Shop in Newtown. I'm sure you've all been in to the new shop to get your ramen fix, but this Friday the noodles are coming to you!
That's right, the Ramen Shop guys now have enough staff to keep the shop running while also popping up around town!
So from 5pm tomorrow night you can order yourself a delicious bowl with your pint - what better way to round off the working week?


Our free live gig this Saturday comes from the Louis Thompson-Munn Trio.
LTM will be playing a mix of originals and groove staples drawing from funk, soul, jazz, hip-hop and R&B from 10pm Saturday.
As usual we're covering the band's fee so you can enjoy them for free.

F#@k Yeah!

As announced last week,
next Friday is our over the tap takeover of American beers celebrating American Independence day. 

We won't be doing anything by halves this year, expect an overload of red, white & blue with delicious American fare provided by The Fire Truck.
Thanks to our buddies over at Beer Without Borders we've managed to create a nicely varied tap lineup, which will initially look something like this:

- Ballast Point Grunion Pale Ale
- Ballast Point Big Eye IPA
- Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA
- Almanac Bourbon Sour Porter
- Almanac Golden Gate Gose
- Coronado Orange Ave Wit
- Rogue Chocolate Stout
- Ballast Point Pescadero Pils
- Ballast Point Sextant Stout (Handpump)

If you're thirsty enough, we'll be able to rotate some of these on tap:
- Left Coast Tommy
- Rogue 7 Hop IPA
- Ballast Point Sculpin IPA
- Ballast Point Indra Kunindra

- Rogue Farms Pumpkin Patch Ale
- Ballast Point Wahoo Wheat
- Ballast Point Longfin Lager.

Don't miss this once a year showcase of some of 'Muricas best beers, on Friday July 4th.

Sock Hop

A new shipment from California has just arrived at Beer Without Borders - conveniently timed for the above US tap takeover. Another bonus being new seasonal beers from your favourite West Coast Breweries.

Keep an eye out for some new bottles over the next week, but on tap this Tuesday will be Coronado's (very) recently released Imperial IPA - Sock Knocker.

Sock Knocker Imperial IPA is part of the company’s Brewer’s Series - a seasonal series featuring small-batch brews. According the the brewery: "Amarillo, Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe hops unite to create an immensely floral, botanical nose and a veritable explosion of citrus and pine on the palate." 
Sounds pretty good eh? It weighs in at 8.5% ABV, the same strength as Coronado's year-round hop bomb Idiot IPA, but apparently this one contains significantly more hops than even Idiot IPA.... Scary.

Sock knocker will be on tap from 5pm next Tuesday!
