If two of your resolutions for 2014 are to run more and drink more beer, then we’ve got two great events for you that are centered around Stamford’s own Half Full Brewery.
Up first is the Community Pub Run. Normally the run is just something small that Fleet Feet Sports in Stamford and Half Full put on, but this one’s definitely bigger with a bunch of sponsors like Nike, Fleet Foot Sports, Dinosaur Bar-b-que, Half Full, Pacific, Exhale, Harbor Point, Lululemon Athletic, Flywheel, and Elevate Fitness. The Community Pub Run (free) begins at 6:30 pm on 1/8 at Dinosaur Bar-b-que. You’ll go for a nice jaunt through Harbor Point and end back up at the famed finger-licking BBQ joint where there will be raffles, giveaways, and chances to try on some Nike kicks. And, yes, don’t worry, there will be plenty of food and drinks for everybody.
And something else that we’re very excited about is the first Rare Beer Night of 2014 at Half Full on 1/15, starting at 7 pm. We loved the first time we went on 7/17 with our friend Christine, but we must admit this one seems even more amazing. The highlight of the night will undoubtedly be the New Years Resolution Ale. This barleywine will be lovingly placed into a Jack Daniel’s barrel to be aged for a year. Attendees will submit New Years resolutions and the brew crew at Half Full will burn/etch your hopes and dreams onto the barrels.
Then, when 2015 rolls around, Half Full will be bottling the New Years Resolution Ale into bombers…that’s 22 ounces of beautiful brew. Conor, Chief Beer Philosopher, says this will most likely be the first time that they sell their beer in bottles. As an added incentive for coming to the 1/15 Rare Beer Night, you’ll get first dibs on these bottles when they go on sale!
Entry is limited to 40 beer guzzlers, so get your tix for $30 ($32.64 with fees) by registering here. You can expect 3-5 full pours of rare beers that were nano-brewed just for this event paired with some great food.
See you there…you best believe we already have our tix!
