Hello Nickel Beer Fans!
What better way to celebrate a three day weekend than with a massive amount of hops? We will have THREE Double IPAs on tap starting Friday including the new Fix It and Fugheddabouditt, a Double IPA version of the popular Fix It IPA brewed with Amarillo, Crystal and Simcoe hops (thanks to our Jersey born bartender Alli at O’Brien’s for the proper spelling!). We’ll also have Hops to the Rescue, our charity beer for the Southern California Lupus Foundation and our last keg of Blue Truck, our 100% Columbus hopped DIPA. All three beers will be on tap all weekend and available for growler fills.
And if that wasn’t enough hops for you, we will have a fantastic selection of IPAs as well including the new Tahoma IPA, Chinook IPA, Volcan IPA, Grapefruit Bighorn IPA and Banner Grade IPA. For those into something less hoppy, we will still have a full range of beers including C.C. O’Neill’s Irish Red, Stonewall Stout and Tripp’s Tripel. Jalapeno Gold will also be back on tap for this weekend.
We will be opening at our regular time on Saturday and Sunday at 11 am and then opening early on Monday at Noon for the holiday. We’ll be open until at least 8:30 pm Friday and Saturday and we likely will be open a little later than our normal 7:30 pm on Sunday.
The deli at Jack’s Grocery is now delivering food to Nickel Beer! They have well made sandwiches – including a nice Philly Cheesesteak – along with an eclectic mix of other items including pizza by the slice and burritos. You can get your meal delivered from 11:30 am to 3 pm on Friday and from 11 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday. They will also be delivering from 12-3 pm on Monday for Memorial Day. You can pay with cash or they can take a credit card over the phone when you order. Just ask the bartender for the menu.
We will be doing one more Beer to the Rescue event for the Southern California Lupus Foundation on Thursday, June 1st at West Coast Barbecue and Brew in La Mesa. Our Hops to the Rescue Double IPA will be on tap alongside Banner Grade IPA and Tahoma IPA. This is the last of a very full schedule of Beer to the Rescue events. You can see the full event list here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/beertotherescue/events/?ref=page_internal.
Next weekend Tom and Perry returns to the tap line up. This is our collaboration with Julian Cider Works that features pear cider made from the pears grown at the brewery. This 2016 harvest version clocks in at 10% alcohol so we are only serving it in 5 or 9 oz glasses. Look for it on tap by Friday, June 2nd.
And in the very near future, Weekender Wheat will be back on tap. Our annual summer Hefeweizen is always refreshing in these long, warmer days. I expect it to be on tap no later than June 9th.
That is your Nickel Beer news for now. We’ll see you soon for a tasty Julian brewed beer. Cheers, Tom
