#BZNBEERWEEK Day 4 - Test Your Strength

BCBW 2019 Facebook Header-01.png

TODAY IS ABOUT STRENGTH:
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL

Today you'll need all your strength - it's going to take some brain power as well as some physical strength - for today's events!  Today we ramp back up with FOUR events happening this evening, so I thought another if-I-were-you schedule might be helpful. Check it out!

Loy’s IF-I-WERE-YOU Tuesday, May 7th plan:

1) I tried Kelsey’s letter to my boss but unfortunately, even I couldn’t get the week off. So alas, I’m headed to work this morning. So, I’ll work all day today, but spend a significant amount of time daydreaming about the Beer Week events I’ll be headed to tonight.

2) After work, I’d head straight to the Bozeman Taproom to try their BEER COCKTAILS - yep, you heard that right! Plus a beer cocktail sounds like a great way to wind down for a bit after a day of work.

3) Then I’d get up to Bridger Brewing for their 3rd annual Stein Holding Competition. I’ve been practicing for a year now, so I’m ready to compete! This is always a fun event - to participate in or just to spectate! It starts promptly at 6, and let’s be honest, even the strongest of strong can’t make it more than 10 minutes with those double steins they have… so it’s always an exciting and short event! Kind of like the Kentucky Derby of Beer Week.

4) After the Stein holding, I’d swing by White Dog Brewing for Trivia, and while I think I’ll end up being a little late so I might not get to join a team, I want to make sure to get a delicious beer from them before they shut their doors at the end of the week!

5) Then, right before 7:30, I’d head over to Ale Works - and cross my fingers that there’s a few tickets left for the Beer Pairing menu with Museum of the Rockies. They’ve got trivia going too, so I’d be warmed up from trivia at White Dog… plus I’m super hungry at this point and Ale Works’ chefs always put together some AMAZING pairings!

6) And since it’s only Tuesday, it’d be straight home to bed after dinner. We’re only halfway through the week!

#BZNBEERWEEK Day 2: Level up your Sunday Funday

BCBW 2019 Facebook Header-01.png

LEVEL UP YOUR SUNDAY FUNDAY 

It's Day 2, and we've got a full line up of events to keep the Sunday Fun going all day long!  Today's events vary from goats to fly tying... there's truly something for everyone!

And… once again, I had some people (read: one person) who mentioned they liked my post yesterday, so I thought, why not, it might be helpful if I outlined a plan you again for the today! So… here it is:

Loy’s IF-I-WERE-YOU Sunday, May 5th plan:

1) I would make some coffee, eat a little breakfast, and then promptly get over to Nordic for the Goat Races. I’ll be honest, I have NO IDEA what’s going to go on, but I am VERY intrigued, and can’t wait to see what goes down. Plus a Maibock release?!?! A perfect way to start the day!

2) Then right at 2pm, I’d swing over to Outlaw Brewing for my shot at Hop Hole (as a relatively competitive person, I’m looking forward to this competition!) and will hopefully be leaving with some sweet Outlaw schwag. Plus, I can get another pint of that County 6 IPA - have you guys tried it yet?!? It’s AM-AZ-ING.

3) At 3pm, I’d dart on over to Bunkhouse for Pints from the Past. Bunkhouse always has some super unique brews on tap, and I love hearing from the crew at Extreme History Project. That will be a nice way to wind down the afternoon.

4) Then I’d wrap up my evening as a spectator at Creek to Peak’s Brewed on the Fly fly tying competition at 406 Brewing. I’m no fly-fisherwoman, but watching these folks tie flies with BEER INGREDIENTS is INCREDIBLE. I’d probably grab some dinner there as well, and then call it an early evening, since it is only Sunday… ;)

#BZNBEERWEEK Day 1: Start your week off right - WITH BEER!

BCBW 2019 Facebook Header-01.png

Bozeman Beer Fam, wait no more... 

BOZEMAN CRAFT BEER WEEK 2019 IS
FINALLY HERE!

WE’RE SO EXCITED TO BE CELEBRATING BOZEMAN CRAFT BEER WEEK WITH YOU ALL!

For this blog post, I thought it would be great if I outlined a plan for the week. When there’s so many choices of what you can do each day, I thought I’d help you out with a step-by-step plan to help you plan out your day. So… here it is:

Loy’s IF-I-WERE-YOU Saturday, May 4th plan:

If you’re new to Craft Beer Week, (or even if you’re a veteran) - sometimes it can be helpful to have someone breakdown a plan for the day for you. SO… here it is: if I were you, I’d structure my day like this:

1) I’d start my day by swinging by Big Brew Day first thing in the morning. I’d want to see exactly how homebrewing happens, so I’d want to be there from about 10 or so until noon, just getting the feel for my future homebrew set up.

2) Then I’d head over to MAP Brewing for the May the 4th Party (I obviously put my Star Wars costume in my car this morning so I was ready to change. I mean, a free beer for coming in costume? I’m TOTALLY IN.) I’d get a half pint of Dank Vader and a half pint of Fempire after the Star Wars themed release at 12:30 before slamming some food before my next stop.

3) Then I’d swing by Dean’s Zesty Booch and do a little custom-beer-and-booch blend, but I’d definitely can it and take it to-go so that I can save it for later.

4) Then I’d go home, get out of my Star Wars costume, and prepare for the Kickoff Party! I’d head over to The Market (across from Sidewinders) probably around 5:30 or so, to listen to Lazy Owl String Band, try the collab beer, and stock up on all my BCBW SCHWAG!!!

5) Then, I’d Uber home (let’s be real, the most IMPORTANT part of the week is being safe and taking care of ourselves and our community!), drink a pint of water, and getting well rested so I’m all ready for Sunday!

Check out more details about each of the events below!!
