Summer In The City

from theweeklybrew

JR gave me an updated taplist, I’ve posted it at the bottom

logositcJR has made sure it’s no secret that Venti’s has some Burghead Heather Ale from Roots waiting to be tapped, and I’ve made it no secret that I will visit said keg when it is tapped. However JR has informed me that Thane is holding back on tapping it. for more specifics on Venti’s involvement check out their blog.

Here’s the email I received from JR

Bad news, good news.
Venti’s Cafe, in conjunction with Maletis Beverage, Portland, is operating the Craft Beer Pavilion

during the 2009 Salem ‘Summer in the City Music & Wine Festival’.

Bad News first:

Burghead Heather Ale is not on offer at Venti’s Cafe.
Thane continues to hold the 1/6 barrel of RootsO ‘Burghead Heather Ale’ in reserve
hedging against a short fall by a beer distributor; Columbia, General, Maletis, Mountain People

Good News, at last:

Allegedly, there will be an inexhaustible supply.
