Half Full Kicks off 2014 with Barreled Barleywine, Rare Beer Night, and Community Pub Run – Stamford, CT

6 Jan

 

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.

Two Roads Route of All Evil

Beer: Route of all Evil

Brewery:  Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford, CT

Style:  Black Ale

Color and appearance:  After the pour, there was about an inch of brown foamy head that took a couple of minutes to fizzle down.  As for the color, it’s black.  Not brown, or even brown-black.  Black.
