Arcadia Beer Dinner at Izzy’s GIVEAWAY

Since February of 2012, various Izzy’s restaurants in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area have been hosting one of the best beer dinner values around. Now, if you are one of our registered Hoperatives, you have a chance to win the very best beer dinner value – FREE.

This coming Thursday (August 14th) at 7:00 pm, the Fort Wright Izzy’s will be hosting their next monthly beer dinner. This time, they will be serving three beers from a favorite Michigan brewery — Arcadia Brewing Company. Here are the beers and their descriptions from the Arcadia Brewing website:

• Arcadia Hopmouth Double IPA (8.1% ABV) — “The first in our Brew Crew Big Beer Series, Arcadia Hopmouth Double IPA has huge Maris Otter malt and a generous amount of fresh hops combined to make this extremely balanced ale remarkable.”

• Arcadia London Porter (7.2% ABV) — “Our Smoked Porter is a robust London style porter with a deep chocolate/ruby color and the subtle accent of hardwood smoked malt. This distinctive beer is brewed using no less than seven different varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in a complex and full bodied beer characterized by hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel and beechwood smoke. The big malty finish to this beer is balanced by a solid hop bitterness and the refined English aroma and flavor of premium Goldings finishing hops.”

• Arcadia Loch Down Scotch Ale (7.5% ABV) — “Step into the Scottish Highlands with this authentic Strong Scotch Ale. A lovely and deep garnet color is joined by the aroma of plums and toffee in this unique and special ale. Brewed with Maris Otter malted barley from Crisp Maltings, Ltd. in England, the rich and full-bodied feel of this beer brings out flavors of caramel and roasted chestnuts, which is balanced with a clean and crisp alcohol finish, and just the right amount of lingering hop bitterness. A real treat!”

These three great beers will be paired with:

• Double Coated Kellogg’s Cornflake Chicken Tenders,
• Izzy’s Combo (corned beef and pastrami on rye bread topped with melted imported Swiss cheese) and a potato cake
• Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Chocolate Scotcharoos.

Cost is $25.00 per person and you also get an Arcadian Brewing glass to take home. For reservations, call (859) 331-4999 or email jjbent@izzys.com

BUT, if you are a registered Hoperative listed on our Roll Call AND you are subscribed to our exclusive newsletter only for registered Hoperatives, you are already entered to win two passes to the Arcadia beer dinner at the Fort Wright Izzy’s.

Not sure if you are registered Hoperatives? Check out the list on our Roll Call page and if you’re not on it, fill out the form at the top. Once you’re registered, there will be a link for signing up for the Registered Hoperatives newsletter in your confirmation email. We will announce a winner this coming Wednesday (August 13th) at noon.

SweetWater / Hoperatives Event at Hebron Brew Haus – 8/11

Back on July 16th, we told you about SweetWater Brewing expanding their distribution into Ohio in the next month or so. In anticipation of that, we will be hosting a SweetWater event this coming Monday (August 11th) at 6:00 pm at Hebron Brew Haus to give all of our Ohio Hoperatives a chance to check out their beers before they’re available in the Buckeye State.

If you’ve ever driven to CVG, Hebron Brew Haus is easy to find. Just take the next exit after the airport exit (Exit 8A) and then take the first right. Hebron Brew Haus is the left part of the strip mall tucked back in there. The official address to plug into your GPS is 2030 Northside Dr in Hebron, KY.

Three SweetWater beers will be on tap including 420, IPA and their Waterkeeper Ale that we told you about in our earlier post. Local SweetWater rep Ken Osborne will be on hand as well as Zak Schroerlucke who is SweetWater’s Brewery Education Manager aka their “Resident Sipster”.

Besides the beer, there will be giveaways including some beer books and memorabilia from our private Hoperatives collection. While the event officially starts at 6:00 pm, the SweetWater beer will be flowing by 5:00 that night.

So, Ohioans, take a drive across the river and check out the hoppy goodness that is heading your way from SweetWater. And, Kentuckians? Let’s show them how it’s done!

See you Monday at Hebron Brew Haus!

A Hoperatives Toast: That’s Officer McGreevy to You, Pal

With that he’ll embark on his lifelong dream of becoming a police officer. Chris is a wonderful dad, a great friend and he’s very important to all of us here at Hoperatives.

Congratulations, Chris. We proud of you and we’ll let you know when we’re done buying your beer.
