February 12th, 2015


My partner Denise and I mark our anniversary this Saturday. For some reason, other couples worldwide choose to celebrate their own relationships on the date of our anniversary as well.
We're pretty touched that so many people care.
It's become a bit of a tradition to eat chocolate on the 14th, so we thought it would be good business practice to cater to this increased demand with a couple of Rogue's chocolatiest (yes, that's a word...) beers.

Being that it's Bottle Pour Saturday, we'll be serving Rogue Double Chocolate Stout from the distinctive red painted bottle.

This 9%ABV stout is flavoured with "imported Dutch bittersweet chocolate", giving the big roasty stout a super chocolaty finish. You can grab a 250ml glass for $9.50 this Saturday only.

We'll also have Rogue's regular chocolate stout on tap by the pint for you to compare it with. The word decadent comes to mind.


You can have some jelly with you chocolate on Saturday, with Dayle Jellyman’s Three Rays playing in the lounge from 9.30pm.They'll be playing some early Ray Charles and Nat King Cole style rocknroll blues, boogaloo and boogie-woogie.

We'll even cover the cost of the band, so you can enjoy their talents for free. That's 9.30pm this Saturday.

Something Pale from the Crown City

When I visited the Coronado brewery late last year, it was great to see all the small batch one-off and experimental brews available from on their little brewpub kit.
We were lucky enough to obtain a few kegs of these limited release batches, another of which will go on tap this coming Tuesday.
There is not a lot of information on Coronado 435 Pale Ale online, but the brewery provided this info:

"4-3-5 refers to Coronado’s landline and the 3 hop additions in our American pale ale, 4 pounds northern brewer, 3 pounds chinook, and 5 pounds cascade per 10 barrels. A well balanced beer with a clean malt character that supports the hop presence."
It's also 45IBU, which is up there for a 5% beer. 435 Pale Ale will be on tap from 5pm this Tuesday.
