“Purple Haze Espresso Stout” release at Sockeye Grill and Brewery, 3019 Cole Rd in Boise at 5pm. We will be rolling out this perennial favorite on nitro only. Try a pint, or our promotional half pint for $2.75 and keep the glass! This smooth, bold brew is made with specialty beans from our friends at Flying M Coffee House and Garage.
Sockeye Brewing will be hosting “Wax-N-Beer” on select Thursdays with our guests from Boise’s local Bogus Basin Ski Patrol. Members from the mostly volunteer organization will be on hand to wax skis and snowboards on our heated patio. We will be screening ski movies and giving you a pint for your wax. $10 for skis, $15 for snowboards. Donations will go towards the Ski Patrol.
Sockeye will be hosting an appreciation ceremony for our “Cans For Care” project. We rolled out pink 6-packs of Dagger Falls IPA in October to raise funding for our local cancer care centers, St. Luke’s Mountain State Tumor Institute and Saint Alphonsus Cancer Care Center. Our distributor and our retailers matched a per case donation to raise the funds. The first year of our launching this program was a big success in the Treasure Valley and we hope to continue this program every year, launching statewide distribution in Idaho of the special charity cans in 2014.
Sockeye Brewing was given the opportunity to experiment and characterize three brand new hop varieties from Jackson Hop Farms in Wilder, Idaho. Idaho’s hop farms west of Boise make up 75% of the state’s hop acre production and we are the third largest producer in the USA behind Washington and Oregon. Our brewers feel honored to put their collective years of training and professional brewing and competing to good use for the farm. Sockeye will be hosting a “Hop Flight Night” to share our Smash brew Trio with fans. Patrons who would like to test their knowledge on hop characteristics and sensory analysis will be given three beer samples, one of each hop in a single malt, single hop brew, along with a character sheet. They will also get to pitch their favorite hop and a name for the new varieties.
Wax-N-Beer night on our heated patio with Bogus basin Ski Patrol. Bring your skis or board for a fresh wax by the Ski Patrol volunteers and we’ll give you a pint for your donation to the organization!! $10 for skis, $15 for snowboards.
