National Indian Pudding Day, Plus...

From Doug:

Greetings and salutations!

The big day is almost upon us! Thanksgiving? The start of hunting season? No! National Indian Pudding Day! A whole day to celebrate this wonderful, and nearly forgotten dessert. First things first.
This Thursday, November 12th at 8ish p.m., we'll tap our 114th cask-conditioned ale. "Women Drink Fruit Beer and Lose Their Panties! Film at 11!" (aka "I'll Have What She's Having!") is actually a cask-conditioned lager (Lincoln Lager) with pomegranate ice cream flavoring added to it. If you like fruit beers or the sight of crazed women in the presence of a brown-eyed handsome man, you'll love this beer! I know Sue's definitely looking forward to it! As always, we'll have some fabulous prizes, courtesy of our corporate sponsor for a few lucky folks in attendance at the tapping.
If that's not enough for ya, immediately following the tapping, we'll be hosting a promo party for Milagro Mandarin Tequila. That's right, free samples of booze!
To kick off National Indian Pudding Day, we'll release Indian Pudding Ale at midnight. Then it'll be on tap as soon as we open Friday morning, along with plenty of Indian Pudding to eat. What's that you say? Been in a Turkish prison and don't know about Indian Pudding? A quick summary to get ya excited- it's made with mollases, corn, milk/cream, and assorted spices. We made the beer with all those same ingredients. Trust me, it's delicious!
Our drinks of the week are "Gourmet Caramel Apple " (Van Gogh Caramel Vodka and Stoli Apple Vodka). You can get one for just $3.25! It's better than a real caramel apple, and it doesn't stick to your teeth! We're also featuring $2 Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum and Cokes and $3 shots of Milagro Mandarin Tequila (starting Thursday). You already know that Fan Club Members can get $5 growler refills (excluding The Queen) with purchase of something else every Saturday and Sunday. But did you know that if you go to, click on "savings and special offers", and fill out the form, you can get a free tube of Extreme Clean toothpaste! Also, Wednesday is Veteran's Day (be sure to thank a vet or anyone currently serving), and Krispy Kreme is giving out free donuts all day long to veterans!
Hunting season starts Sunday, so don't forget to fill up your growlers! If you want a keg and you have your own cornie keg, I can help you out with that too. I'm actually gonna take a couple days off for hunting myself, so next week's newsletter will be delayed, but we will be having new food items and a new beer on Thursday the 19th.
This week on, "Pudding Pow Wow", you'll hear Francisco say, "What happened to the new guy?" You'll also hear Nicole say, "Shush! We've got a lot of pudding to make!"
On your plate this week, look for Tuna Noodle Casserole, Chicken Lasagna, Coconut Chicken with Pineapple Ginger Rice, Meatball Strombolis, Pretzel Crusted Catfish, Apple Cranberry Turkey Burgers, and of course, Chicken and Waffles and Beer Can Chicken (Thursday-Sunday).
To summarize: fruit beer on Thursday!; free tequila on Thursday!; Fort Street Brewery is party central for National Indian Pudding Day!; three cheap drinks this week; thank you veterans!; free toothpaste!; lots of tasty food on your plate; and "be very quiet, I'm drinking beer but telling my wife I'm hunting!"

See ya soon,
