Our ol’ go-to pizza/beer spot is becoming bigger and better. Soon (hopefully by the end of September) it’ll be a whole lot easier to get a table, grab a beer, and nom away on a slice of their coal-fired pizza. This has all been made possible by getting the shop next store, gutting it out, then sprinkling on the Coalhouse mojo. When you go into the new room, you’ll notice how big the room is, filled with tables, a bar, and more. Onto the more part: you’ll notice that you can do more than just eat at Coalhouse Pizza. Gerard and co. have a shuffleboard table, darts, karaoke, and Golden Tee 2013 so you can drink some cold ones or eat while you destroy your friend (or significant other) at any of those games. Plus, there will be four large flat screen tvs for your viewing pleasure. And, you asked for it, now you’ll have it: 60 additional seats. That’s enough to spread out and also enough for a nice party. Just sayin’.
One of the first things that Coalhouse Pizza has planned for the next space is a monthly series of beer classes that you can attend to learn more about beer or even how to homebrew. PhD. in Beerology? Yes. Masters in Brews? You know it. Beer Philosopher? Most definitely. The first date is October 8 and will be hosted by Brendan Kingston of B. United International. On topic? “Hopstacle,” a talk about the five major hop growing areas and their different flavors and aromas. To really get what he’s talking about, Coalhouse will have five beers for tasting that use those exact hops.
Maybe you can use that knowledge to help you brew some killer beer in the Coalhouse Pizza and Maltose Express homebrew competition, too? Entries are due by November 19, 2012. Winners get gift certificates to Maltose Express and Coalhouse and will be announced at the Homebrew Club meeting on December 4 at 7 pm. Coalhouse Pizza holds this contest quite often, so definitely keep up with them if homebrewing is a passion of yours and you want to meet other beer-minded folk.
