Happy Birthday to us!! We're saying cheers to 7 wonderful years of beer with a whole weekend of fun. We'll be bringing back some old favorites and showcasing new experiments all weekend long. There will be food on site all weekend and as always, there is NO ADMISSION, TICKETS, or TOMFOOLERY to celebrate with us. Come as you are and all are welcome! Details on beer releases, times, and fun below!
🍻🎤🎉 Day 1: Friday, November 15th 🍻🎤🎉
🔹The Return of The Richard🔹
Our imperial IPA hopped up to the max! This "mistake brew" was the first brew we ever had on our system. We ended up boiling off 1/3 of the water, but hopped it like a full batch! The result is an ultra smooth, intensely aromatic West Coast meets East Coast IPA that makes its return each year. The beer finished at 9.3% ABV with 85 IBU's. It will be available on draft and to-go in growlers.
🔸 Live Music by The Tinder🔸
Friday night, we will have live music from local favorites, The Tinder, who opened Center of the Universe back in 2012 and have been coming back ever since. They pair perfectly with an ice cold beverage!
The Tinder will play from 5:30-8:30pm
🍻🎤🎉 Day 2: Saturday, November 16th 🍻🎤🎉
🔹The Return of Cellared 2016 Shut Up Imperial Stout🔹
2016 Shut Up is an Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon and Red Wine Barrels that has been aging in our cellar for 3 years! This “Black Friday” brew has an intensely complex and extraordinarily smooth flavor. The beer clocks in at 11.9% and contains a chewy mouthfeel to enhance the wide array of flavors from fig to dark chocolate. Be sure to stop by THIS Black Friday to try the 2019 version of this ever-changing beer.
🔸 Live Music by Moossa🔸
In its early days Moossa was an eclectic rock quartet that tended to jam out. Four records and hundreds of shows later the group has evolved into is a tight, groove oriented five piece with singer Nancy Waldman taking the helm on most of the tunes. The band utilizes multiple vocals for 3 part harmonies and each of the 4 vocalists is represented on this work. If you've heard them before, you know the band has a lot to offer, and you will be hooked, snapping your fingers, tapping your feet and bobbing your head from start to finish.
Moossa will play from 1:30 - 4:30pm
🔹The Return of Cellared 2018 Bier de Garde🔹
Bier de Garde (spelled Bière de Garde traditionally) is a European style of beer that is similar to that of a Saison, but a little higher in alcohol. It is malt forward with just a hint of hops. The flavor is pretty mellow and a little fruity, with some nice grassy and spice notes. The beer was primary fermented in stainless with a Belgian ale yeast strain, and then after primary fermentation was complete, was transferred to the oak barrels. IMPORTANT – Our Bier de Garde was aged in oak barrels for 11 months with Brettanomyces (brett-tan-no-mice-ease). Brett, for short, is a type of yeast that is similar to Saccharomycetaceae, or brewers yeast. Through aging on this type of yeast, funky flavors are achieved. These flavors include barnyard and horse blanket as well as some fruity estery qualities. Brett also is able to eat really small and complex sugar strands which helps to dry the beer our. It is also why it takes so long for the complexity to come in.
🔸 Live Music by Something Shiny Band 🔸
Something Shiny is interested in giving our fans a much different kind of "acoustic duo" experience. Many times, "absurd" requests are scoffed by performing artists thinking that the song is "outside" the acoustic element. We intend to prove that any song can be done in an "unplugged" fashion. But most of all, we are interested in everyone having fun and enjoying something a little different- Something Shiny.
Something Shiny will play from 5pm - 8pm
🍻🎤🎉 Day 3: Sunday, November 17th 🍻🎤🎉
Satellites Rewards Members will be able to pick up their prize packs on Sunday, November 17th. Thanks for 7 wonderful years, Satellites! ❤️
We will also have some of your favorite Satellite Brews on tap for your enjoyment.
🔸 Live Music by Stagg Creek 🔸
Stagg Creek is a rock cover band from Ashland, Virginia that at times leans country, searches for soul, ventures into R&B, and is even down with getting funky. Carefully crafted set lists unveil a diverse repertoire of popular hits that heat up the dance floor, harmony filled ballads that melt hearts, and hard hitting rockers that melt faces. The band is a product of coincidence and circumstance rooted in hidden talents uncovered during backyard campfires, pool side chats, and impromptu jam sessions. Members include Vonda Fox (vocals), Abe Longmire (drums/vocals), Richie Crabbe (bass/vocals), Zeb Roberts (keys/vocals), and Tim Robinson (guitar/harmonica/keys.)
Stagg Creek will play from 4pm - 7pm
As always, Freekin' Rican - Puerto Rican Food Carts & Catering, our permanent food truck, will be on site with delicious faire every day of our celebration weekend 🍽🍻
