Coming Up at Fort Street

Sez Doug:
Greetings and salutations!

We were begining to think we were gonna have to change the name of "Summer Sunsation" to "Fall By the Wayside". But believe it or not, we finally emptied a tank of something! It wasn't the tank we had wanted to empty, but hey, we'll take it.
So this Thursday, July 16th, you'll finally get to drink the 5th edition of "Summer Sunsation". Subtitled, "My summer as a juggling, unicycle riding, sleep deprived brewer at a brewery that can't seem to find any employees". Made with oats, wheat, barley, juniper berries, orange peel, corriander, blood, sweat, and tears. It's one seriously refreshing beer! As an added bonus, we'll also be tapping "Wild Horses". This is an absolute treat that I should save all for myself, but I'll be generous and share this rare delight with you. Fermented with brettanomyces yeast, this light ale is a complex cornicopia of flavors. If you like lambics, cheese that sells for $25/lb and tastes like it should cost more, a glass of ice cold water when you're about to die of heat exhaustion, or koala bears, you will definately like this beer. The festivities kick off precisely at 8ish p.m. As usual, we'll have some fabulous prizes for a few lucky folks in attendance.
Our liquor of the week is Pama liqueur. You can get a Pama Breeze (Pama, vodka, grapefruit, and cranberry juices) for just $3, or a Pama Kiss (Pama, apple vodka, and cranberry juice) for just $3.50. In addition to that, the tasty liquors we introduced last week (Sailor Jerry Rum and Milagro tequila) are still still on sale! You already know that we have great pitcher specials for every Detroit Tiger game, until 6 p.m. on Saturday, and all day on Sunday. You also know that we sell turkey legs as big as giant babies for just $2 every Tuesday. But did you know that even though koala bears have pouches, they rarely carry a wallet. So if you ever meet one in a bar, you'll be the one buying.
There's only like 18 days left until Brew-Ha-Ha! It's the beer event of the season, and all the cool people will definately be there.
This week on, "Why Don't People Eat Lunch Anymore?!", you'll hear Pete ask, "Why don't people eat lunch here anymore?" You'll also hear Frank say, "Parsley makes the food look better." And finally, you'll hear Nicole say, "What happened to all the parsley?"
You know this is National Bean month, and Michigan is the nation's leading producer of beans. So on your plate this week, look for Chili Con Carne (made with beans and other tasty stuff), Chicken & Black Bean Salad (made with beans and other tasty stuff), Chicken Pot Pies, Baked Potato Pizzas, Shepherd's Pie, and Chesapeake Crab Reubens (made with crab and other tasty stuff).
In summary: summer beers before summer is over; mmmm, cheese; cheap booze; koala bears with turkey legs in their pouches; Brew-Ha-Ha tickets that are so hot they're en feugo; space available during lunch; and beans to make you toot!

Brett beer? We're there!
