October 10, 2014 - Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States
First Draft 2014
Celebrate 10 years of First Draft under the downtown Tulsa skyline Oct. 10 Annual beer-tasting benefits Tulsa Press Club, helps fund college scholarships TULSA, Okla. – Tulsa’s premier beer-tasting event returns this fall to ONEOK Field, home of the Tulsa Drillers and anchor to the revitalized Brady and Greenwood districts. The Tulsa Press Club’s annual First Draft craft beer-tasting is celebrating its tenth year, and will aptly be held October 10th. Last year’s supporting brewers were Marshall Brewing, Prairie Artisan Ales, Dead Armadillo, Black Mesa, Roughtail, Coop, Choc, Tallgrass, Huebert, Mustang, Battered Boar and FOAM with more than 50 Oklahoma craft beers being featured. Tom Gilbert, chief photographer for the Tulsa World and “What the Ale” beer blogger, is serving as chair of the event for the third straight year. “We’re happy to celebrate 10 years of this great event by bringing it back to ONEOK Field, where the Brady District and Greenwood meet,” Gilbert said. “Oklahoma’s breweries continue to make a name for themselves both regionally and nationally. This is an opportunity for our local beer lovers to be among the first to taste the next great beer on the market. With so many unique beers and the beautiful Downtown Tulsa skyline as a backdrop, you can’t ask for a better experience”. Sellout crowds on ONEOK’s Refinery Deck the last two years have opened the opportunity to take First Draft to the concourse level of the ballpark. The concourse accommodates more people, allows for more brewers and gives beer tasters extra room to move. Last year’s event sold out with about 450 attendees. This year’s event is expected to draw at least 600 people. First Draft benefits the Tulsa Press Club, whose mission is to foster and promote ethical journalism, defend freedom of the press and the public’s right to information and encourage the exchange of ideas between media and their publics. To purchase tickets or for more information about First Draft, visit www.firstdrafttulsa.com, check out the facebook page at www.facebook.com/tulsafirstdraft or follow the event on Twitter at @TulsaFirstDraft. Individual tickets are $50 each. Sponsorships and VIP packages are available.

The event features local and regional bands, a dozen craft American and German import beers, and of course, bratwurst.

Sample pouring will take place ONLY between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tables will be made available for brewers to set up, meet and greet others. If you are a competing brewer and plan to participate in the Craft Brew Beer Garden, please make sure to let us know by filling out the appropriate information on the online entry form.

Brew It Forward 2014
We started Brew It Forward 5 years ago, the same year Lonerider first opened its doors. We believe in giving back to the community and as home brewers and beer geeks we realize the opportunity we had in being able to realize our dreams. Therefore, we want to share the chance of brewing a batch in a professional environment with others who may have had similar aspirations. We will also split the profits of the brew with the winning brewer and other non-profits. We do not keep any profits from the batch we brew. We realize this is a small step in furthering the state of already burgeoning craft beer industry, but we certainly hope its a step in the right direction. Cheers!

Sly Fox's DC One Year Anniversary!
ChurchKey Thursday, October 23rd; 6 pm Sly Fox's DC One Year Anniversary Extravaganza: 22 Drafts, 5 Casks & Brewmaster Brian O'Reilly in the House! We couldn't think of better friends with which to share a birthday than the team up at Sly Fox Brewing Company in PA. As part of Birch & Barley/ ChurchKey's 5th Anniversary Week, we are celebrating the first birthday for Sly Fox's delicious ales and lagers in the DC market with over 20 singular Sly Fox drafts and a Sly Fox firkin on each of our 5 cask engines! BBCK's official bday is on the 22nd of October, and we technically launched Sly Fox in DC last year on the 24th, but we are pulling out all of the stops on the 23rd for an unforgettable bash (which will rank as one of the brewery's hugest tappings ever). Unquestionable masters of real ale, Sly Fox is sending fresh classics that we have yet to see in DC on cask including Jake's ESB, Pughtown Porter and Chester County Brown. And the draft list is equally impressive, with old favorites and seasonal specialties lined up alongside rare kegs of Incubus, Black Raspberry Reserve, Nihilist Russian Imperial Stout and Jixxer Golden Bock! And Brewmaster Brian O'Reilly will be in the house to regale us with tales of his adventures in brewing at Sly Fox.

October 24, 2014 - Buellton, California, United States
Real Ale Invitational
Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company has embraced cask ale via their cask program run by Head Brewer of Santa Barbara, Kevin C. Ashford. Each taproom boasts a cask engine for new releases every “Firkin Friday” featuring many of their standard ales. These casks contain high quality ingredients such as hops, spices, coffee, cacao, and even locally grown fruits. Real Ale, or cask beer, is “beer that is unfiltered which undergoes a secondary fermentation and conditioning process. This process naturally carbonates the beer to a softer texture. It is poured directly from the cask—essentially a 10.8 gallon stainless steel barrel—without additional Nitrogen or Carbon Dioxide assistance,"Ashford explains. Wanting to bring more exposure for cask beer to the Central Coast, Ashford and the events team at Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company will be hosting a Real Ale Invitational on Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. Over a dozen breweries will be showcasing their own styles of real ale at Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company’s flagship brewery and taproom in Buellton, California. Admission is $40 and includes a souvenir glass, unlimited tastings and live music. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Los Padres Forest Watch. For those beer lovers that want a more intimate experience paired with food, a limited number of tickets will be sold for a Real Ale Lunch prior to the Invitational at 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. Meet the cask masters who have perfected the skill of brewing real ale while enjoying a 4-course meal prepared by Beto Huizar, Executive Chef of Beto’s Place, a new restaurant slated to open in Fig Mtn Brew’s Buellton taproom later this year. Tickets to the lunch cost $75 and include admission to the Invitational.

October 25, 2014 - Kinston , North Carolina, United States
Mother Earth Brewing 5 Year Anniversary Party
SATURDAY, OCT. 25 – MOTHER EARTH BREWING 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY Celebrate with us ALL DAY LONG on Saturday, October 25th, as Mother Earth Brewing turns FIVE YEARS OLD! NEUSE RIVER PADDLE Back in April, we sponsored our first ever Neuse River paddle, a scenic canoe and kayak trip down the Neuse River through Kinston to raise money for the Kinston Riverwalk Fund. It was so much fun, we’re doing it again! On the morning of the anniversary party, brewery founders Stephen Hill and Trent Mooring will be guiding a scenic, four mile paddle through the heart of Kinston, ending just a few blocks from the brewery. We’ll provide the boats, the equipment, and beers during the paddle; all you need to bring is yourself and a great attitude! You’ll be shuttled from Mother Earth Brewing down to the launch site, and shuttled back to the brewery at the conclusion. You’ll also get to take part in a guided beer tasting at the Mother Earth Tap Room at the conclusion of the tour! The cost to participate is only $25.00, with 100% of the funds raised going to support the Kinston Riverwalk Fund, building over two miles of nature trails along the Neuse River connecting the Kinston Nature Center with the Woodmen Community Center! The paddle will begin at 10am, and conclude around 1pm, just in time for the street festival at Mother Earth Brewing. Space is very limited and will sell out quickly, so contact the brewery today to reserve your spot by calling (252) 208-2437, or emailing info@motherearthbrewing.com LIVE MUSIC When we opened five years ago, we celebrated with a fantastic set from 90s alternative rockers The Connells, in a show that people have been talking about ever since. So to celebrate this anniversary, we’re bringing The Connells back to Kinston! Formed in Raleigh, NC in 1985, The Connells have released seven full length albums, featuring hits like “74-75,” “Stone Cold Yesterday,” and “Slackjawed.” They’ve toured extensively with acts like Def Leppard and won numerous awards for their 1993 Platinum album “Ring.” We’ll be featuring an afternoon of live music on North St. in front of the brewery headlined by The Connells, with local favorites The Craig Harrison Quartet and J.P. Soars And The Red Hots also playing feature sets. Music starts at 1pm; set times to be announced! ANNIVERSARY BEERS We've released some pretty spectacular beers both as wide releases and as special “Tap Room Only” batches in the last five years, so to celebrate, we’ll be bringing back some greatest hits, as well as introducing some new special brews! THE OFFICIAL AFTER PARTY We’ll be open late into the evening, but after the Tap Room closes, come hang out with us across the street at our sister bar, The Red Room, for the official after party! Local favorites The Deluge will take the stage at 10pm and The Red Room will be serving up plenty of delicious Mother Earth brews, as well as wine by the glass and local craft spirits. STAY IN KINSTON Interested in coming down for the party, but concerned about having to drive afterwards? Stay with us in Kinston! The Hampton Inn Kinston Hotel, located just one mile away, is offering a discounted rate for folks attending the anniversary party, and Mother Earth Brewing will be offering FREE shuttle service from the hotel to the brewery and back all day long! The rate will be available for all three nights, Thursday, October 23rd through Saturday, October 25th. Just call the Hampton Inn at (252) 523-1400 and ask for a reservation using the Mother Earth rate. Rooms at this special discounted rate are limited, and are only available until September 23rd, so make your reservation today!

October 26, 2014 to October 26, 2014 - Santa Monica, California, United States
BAM FEST 2014
October 10, 2014 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 18th Street Arts Center’s 5th Annual Beer Art & Music Festival The trifecta of all things good! Santa Monica, CA – On Sunday, October 26, 2014 from 1pm- 5pm, 18th Street Arts Center is bringing its renowned BAM Fest (Beer Art & Music Festival) to the Westside of LA. This year’s 5th annual celebration is part of 18th Street’s 25th Anniversary weekend that starts on October 25th with a chic benefit event from 6-10pm and continues on Sunday with BAM Fest. The weekend celebrates 18th Street Arts Center’s rich legacy over the past 25 years and will include everything from performance art and video art installations to gourmet food from local restaurants and food trucks, live music by 3 bands as well as artisanal wine, spirits, and specialty beers from over 40 craft breweries. The event is a steal, with tickets priced at just $45 before October 24th and $50 at the door (that is if tickets aren’t sold out by then!). BAM Fest attendees love spending a Sunday afternoon sipping in the sun, engaging with artists, and exploring significant artworks while listening to booty-shakin’ music. But what really makes this event special for its guests is that they know that all proceeds benefit 18th Street Arts Center, a 25-year-old, influential non-profit arts organization in Santa Monica. It is a culturally infused event that benefits a great cause. I love that BAM Fest is more than just a beer festival! - Anders Nilbrink, Firestone Walker Brewing Company’s LA Events Coordinator. So do we, Anders! Participating breweries have been carefully selected by the team and represent the best of the craft beer industry. The 40+ breweries range from big to small, including the popular and widely known New Belgium Brewing Company and Angel City Brewing Company to newly launched breweries including Three Weavers Brewing Company, whose main goal is to cultivate community through beer. Another new brewery on the scene is Santa Monica Brew Works which has given 18th Street additional support as a lead sponsor. The diverse craft beer offerings at 18th Street’s Beer Art & Music Festival present a range of styles for tasting enjoyment. For the beer connoisseur, this year’s BAM Fest is showcasing limited release seasonal beers such as Hangar 24 Craft Brewery’s Seasonal Oktoberfest and dark strong ales like Brother Thelonious Belgium Style Abbey Ale from North Coast Brewing Company, which partners with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in support of Jazz education. Along with their Golden Road Hefeweizen, Golden Road Brewing will also be featuring their Might As Well IPL, a lager highlighting bold passion fruit and pear contributed by Galaxy and Calypso hops. A special bonus for BAM Fest attendees will be the opportunity to participate in 20-minute mini-educational sessions called ‘Crash Courses’ by craft beer, wine, and art experts. These fun and engaging classes cover a wide range of topics such as how to pick out food flavors from different beers or how art could be paired with some of the best wine and beer. And for those who prefer fermented grapes to hops there will also be an area to sample some of the nation’s finest wines hosted by Wine Enthusiast, Allie Merrick as well as non-alcoholic home-brewed sodas by the Maltose Falcons, America’s oldest Home-Brewing Club. This year BAM is also including Mama’s Boy Infusions, the one of a kind tequila fruit infusion with an original chili kick as well as the semi-sweet, orange-blossom honey mead of Golden Coast Mead’s Mirth in a Bottle. Clearly BAM also has your delicious and exciting alternatives to all of its many craft beers. The tunes lined up for BAM Fest is just as diverse as the beer samples. From the Latin infused rhythmic sounds of KoToląn whose songs, celebrating cultural diversity, are sung in Japanese, Spanish, and English to the dance-inducing soulful funk of Nick Shattuck; the featured music at 18th Street’s BAM Festival is sure to make you move. The young duo of the new hit band Trapdoor Social will take attendees on a musical tour with their passionate alt-pop music that is inspired by their desire to bring awareness to solar and other renewable energy sources. BAM attendees will also be able to do more than just see or purchase art; they will actually be able to interact with and visit the studios of 18th Street Arts Center’s artists-in-residence and arts organizations like Otis College of Art and Design’s MFA in Public Practice program. As one of 18th Street Arts Center’s patrons remarked, ‘There is something to be learned, or something to stimulate the imagination at 18th Street all the time because it is a place where art is made...not just exhibited, but actually created.’ Through BAM and other events throughout the year, 18th Street Arts Center incites its public through challenging art that sparks dialogue. Need a little something to soak up all the scrumptious brews? Naturally you can’t have a festival in Los Angeles without food trucks. A diverse selection of six food trucks such as will provide a bounty of signature dishes that should keep your grumbling stomach at bay. Food Trucks include DogTown Dogs, Baby’s Badass Burgers, Cousins Maine Lobster, India Jones Chow, Meat-the-Greek and the Border Grill Truck. The science, technology and culinary art of NITROPOD, frozen liquid nitrogen desserts, will also be a part of the gourmet food at this year’s event. With the marriage of beer, art, and music, BAM Fest has brewed a one-of-a-kind fundraising event. This is one craft beer festival not to be missed! To support 18th Street consider purchasing tickets securely online at http://www.18thstreet.org/bam BAM - Sunday October 26, 1-5pm pre-sale tickets: $45 before October 24; $50 at the door. Event produced by artisanal drink, food and cultural event planner, Nicole Gordillo Schimpf, Tap & Cheer Events.
