No Cotton For Us

   It's hard to believe that it is time for our second anniversary this Wednesday night the 29th. Where oh where does the time go? Now for all you hopeless romantics, the 2nd year means a gift of cotton. Well, we ain't got much cotton here, but we do have big and small metal containers full of beer that you might like. So at 5 pm, we're going to start tapping some of them.

Russian River Blind Pig
Russian River Pliny the Elder
Russian River Consecration
Bruery 3 French Hens
Parkerford Brewing Lost Cause* (complimentary tasting on the house)

Now I know, that you know, that we are going to tap something else. But we can't make up our minds. It's tough when you have all this good beer in the back cooler. But don't worry, be hoppy, I mean happy. And thank you for another great year!

You better watch out, you better not cry. You better not pout, I'm telling you why, Santa Nick is coming to CAH. He is making a list, checking it twice. He's going to find out who is naughty not nice. Santa Nick is coming to CAH. He sees you when your drinking, he knows when you are late, he knows if you've been bad or good, so you better be bad for goodness sake.

 That's right boys and girls, it's time for the 2 annual Troegs "Yuletide One On"  on Wednesday the 22 of December.
I am quite sure we will be coming down with an itch and I know only one way to scratch it.
