The rules of Can Jam Southeast at Triple Crossing’s Fulton location are pretty simple today Sunday February 11th. Pick a can and drink it. Follow that first can with as many as you can handle.

But which can should you start with? Here’s a handy list of the visiting breweries attending and the cans they will be bringing.

The All Star line up for tomorrow! Tickets will be sold for $6 and can be redeemed for any can. There will be some rules to how Can Jam will be operated, so please read these in advance of coming to the brewery Sunday:

1) Triple Crossing packaged products will only be available at our Downtown location on 2/11. There will be no packaged products (or to-go products) of any kind available at our Fulton location for the duration of the event on 2/11.
2) Tickets, which will be exchanged for cans, can be purchased upon arrival. Only 3 tickets can be purchased at a time. You can get in line again to purchase 3 more, if so desired.
3) Each ticket may be exchanged for one brand from one brewery at a time. For example, you may exchange all 3 tickets at once, but it must be for 3 different beers from 3 different breweries. We’ve done this to ensure that as many guests as possible have the opportunity to try out a wide variety of breweries and their beer.
4) Any cans you receive will be opened by our server upon ticket exchange. There are no exceptions to this rule.
5) Absolutely no outside beer will be allowed on Triple Crossing premises.

If you need a memento of your time today, consider the $3 Can Jam SE koozie.

The Phantom Of The Opera Is Beer Inside Your Mouth At Hardywood Saturday

Hardywood Phantoms of Opera

*Organ music plays*

A chorus sings “the Phantom of the Opera is beer inside….your mouth.”

Oh wait, that’s not right, is it? No matter, I’ve been waiting for the day when Hardywood would release the beers they brewed with the cast of Phantom of the Opera since December.

Join Hardywood on Saturday February 10th to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Broadway musical and try Drink of Me Fondly and Pint of No Return starting at 1pm.

ABOUT THE BEERS

DRINK OF ME FONDLY:
Brewed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway, Drink of Me Fondly is a festive and effervescent sparkling ale, with bright notes of tangerine zest bursting through subtle apricot and white grape undertones. Rose hips deliver a light floral aroma. 4.1% ABV.

PINT OF NO RETURN:
Pursue your deepest urge in this black Lager by Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, The Happy Hour Guys and The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. A paradox for the senses, Pint of No Return is a clean and crisp lager that pours as black as night with notes of toasted pecan, a mild hint of black currant and smooth roasted undertones. 5.5% ABV.

Pint of No Return is our official Broadway Brews beer, and will be available at The Majestic Theatre in NYC in mid-2018 (stay tuned for NYC launch updates!). A portion of the sales of Pint of No Return will benefit Musicians On Call.

Check out the Facebook event for more details and updates.

In the meantime, here are a few clips to put the phantom inside your mind….

Beers to Throw Back As You Groove At Stone’s Throw Down in RVA

Stone Brewing will celebrate the one year anniversary of the opening of their east coast facility here in Richmond this Saturday September 9th starting at noon with a party on Brown’s Island full of live music and independent craft beer as unique and dynamic as Richmond itself.

Stone’s Throw Down in RVA was born out of Stone’s desire to enrich their fan’s experiences with their beers and sought to curate bands for the festival that complimented the beers.

So which beers go best with the bands performing on the island? That’s the exact question I posed to a few people at Stone. Here are their responses:

Daylen Dalrymple, Marketing Communications Manager

Sometimes contrast is just as important in creating a complementary beer pairing. such is the case with Northern Virginia’s Pontiak, whose​ hypnotic sludgy jams are an ideal counterpart to the crisp, refreshing, yet still bitter Stone Delicious IPA. Seeing this band Live is pretty unbelievable, sort of like the reaction we get when we tell people that Stone Delicious IPA is actually gluten reduced!

Ethan Anderson, VP of Marketing

I’d pair Stone Ripper with JEFF The Brotherhood. It’s a San Diego style pale ale inspired by the coastal surf scenes of Australia and So Cal. Psychedelic garage rock pairs perfectly with that rippin’ swell of hops. Of course, they have a song called ‘Ripper’ too, so I guess we shouldn’t overlook that.

Jeff Martin, Director of Brewing Operations, East Coast

I’ll be pairing Stone Go To IPA with No BS! Brass Band on Saturday. Thumping beats with horns are delivered with R&B stylings by No BS! Brass Band. It’s a sound that most of us are familiar with and recognize from our schooldays yet it’s been expanded into something new and different. Stone Go To IPA is the perfect pair. It’s a lower ABV session IPA that stuns you with its surprisingly bold flavor. Just like the band’s infectious tunes, you can definitely kick back more than one of these!

Dominic Engels, Stone Brewing CEO

Pair the definitive West Coast IPA that birthed a generation of hop fanatics with the furious East Coast funk of Boston-born Lettuce and you get the ultimate combination of ICONIC and BIONIC.  Blistering bass, punctuating horns, righteously dank and lingeringly bitter.  Music and beer swirl in some new zombie-apocalyptic strain of DNA that will spawn a new funkin’ IPA army for the now.

Here is the full lineup of artists performing Saturday:

Tickets for the all ages festival are $10/person; free admission for children ages 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased in advance online here.

Head over to the Facebook event for updates and more details including pre- and after-parties.
