I’m really irritated by FAQ sections but the boss tells me we have to have one and that they’re actually quite the popular trend these days.
Q: Do you guys sell bottles of your beer anywhere?
A: Sure do. We bottle a few styles that are distributed throughout NorID & Eastern WA all the way over to the Tri-Cities, Yakima and Ellensburg. Plans to expand our bottling line-up are in motion, so seasonals will soon be popping up on store shelves. If you’d like to request our beer either in bottles or on tap, Click Distributing handles our beer.
Q: You do sell kegs, right?
A: C’mon…what kind of a brewery doesn’t sell kegs? We have 1/2 bbl kegs (15.5 gal), 1/4 bbl kegs (7.75 gal) and 1/6 bbl kegs (5.2 gal). You’ll want to call us at least 24 hours before hand to make sure we’ve got what you want in the size you want. Most half-barrel kegs are $140 and quarters are $80, but seasonals can run a bit higher. The refundable deposit on keg shells is $80 and on the pump taps is $50.
Q: Can under 21-ers eat there or do we have to leave the kids in the car?
A: You can definitely bring the kids in to the brewpub. We’re somewhat of a family-style restaurant and even have a menu for the kiddos. I think society generally frowns upon leaving children locked in the car. But then again, I believe it was Irv Kupcinet who said, “What can you say about a society that says God is dead and Elvis is alive?” That has nothing to do with this question but I was bet $10 I couldn’t fit a sentence in here that mentioned both God and Elvis. I think finding an actual quote is worth $20.
Q: Is there any outdoor seating?
A: We’ve actually got a super nice patio seating area which is typically open from May through September.
Q: Can we bring our dog-friends onto the patio?
A: We love dogs. Seriously. But there’s this “big brother” organization called the Health Department that says we can’t allow animals within the same area where we serve food. So sorry. (Obviously, service animals are more than welcome.)
Q: How come avocados and guacamole turn brown so quickly? Why can’t they fix that?
A: Not sure, but we’ll put our people on that right away.
Q: I’m __________ and can’t eat __________ , what do have for me?
A: We’ve got a few things on the menu that are either prepared gluten/dairy/animal product-free, or can be. Just talk up your really smiley server and they’ll take care of you.
Q: Whoever writes your Brewsletter and internet stuff sounds really cute, can you give out his phone number?
A: He’s not nearly as cute as he reads and he doesn’t usually pay his phone bill so there’s really no use trying to call him.
Q: Can I make a suggestion for a type of beer or a beer name?
A: You could…but you have to know the right people and the secret handshake.
