If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? We've all heard this philosophical quandry and yet the answer is still profound: the tree doesn't make a sound.
Well, after Big A IPA was named the Best American Beer at the Great British Beer Festival, we thought it would be best to make a sound in our own town.
This Friday, September 10, our friends at the Portsmouth Brewery will be hosting a special Firkin Friday. David Yarrington, Director of Brewing Operations will be tapping a firkin of Big A at the Portsmouth Brewery at 4 PM. This cask was dry-hopped with Santiam, Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade hops, the exact same ones that were in the winning cask.
We hope to see you all at the pub on Friday so we can share this special beer with you. Since Portsmouth Little League didn't have the same success as in years past, we hope that this provides a fun, if slightly more adult alternative to celebrating a hometown champion.
