In light of the social distancing measures necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are once again going digital for this month’s First Thursday meetup. Join us online at 7pm on Thursday September 3rd to see a few friendly faces & chat about beers we’re enjoying during these crazy times… This month will feature a very special guest; Averie Swanson.
Averie is a beer lover and mixed fermentation enthusiast. She is the Founder and Beermaker of Keeping Together in Chicago, IL, and co-owner and former head brewer of Jester King Brewery in Austin, TX. Averie is one of nineteen people to have earned the certification of Master Cicerone®, and is recognized world-wide for her contribution to farmhouse brewing.
Averie will join us for a tasting & discussion of her two most recent releases:
At the Still Point of the Turning World
Saison made with Buckwheat and Rye | 5.6% abv
I Am Because We Are
Lavender-smoked Saison with Honey | 5.7% abv
Both of these are available for online ordering and curbside pickup at Half Acre’s Lincoln Avenue taproom. Get those orders in ASAP if you’d like to taste along with us as we discuss these truly remarkable beers from an incredibly talented recent addition to the Chicago brewing scene.
We’ll get things going around 7pm so place your orders, pick up the beers, and join us for what is sure to be a great discussion.
