Your Chance to Become a Hofbräuhaus Stein Master is Coming!

If you’ve been to the Hofbräuhaus Newport, you’ve no doubt seen the lockers where Stein Masters get to store their
stein in between their visits to the Hofbräuhaus. There is a definite limited number of these lockers so membership in Stein Masters is limited too. In fact, membership has been on hold for quite a while now. If you’ve been waiting for your opportunity to get the key to your very own stein lockers, your wait is almost over.

Your chance to become a STEIN MASTER has finally arrived!!!!

Mark your calendars…Monday, June 27th, the Hofbräuhaus will be raffling off the remaining stein lockers. Registration will begin at 5 PM and the drawings will start at 9 PM. Must be present to win. Payment is due that night. One membership per person.

For more information, please contact Matt Hull or Joe Olszewski at 859-491-7200.

Wednesday, March 30th at 2:00 pm – 2:30 am – Bell’s Oberon Release Party at Fries Cafe
From Facebook:

Join us on the eve of opening day for a celebration of Spring with the beer that brings sunshine wherever it’s poured. Drink your first and freshest Oberon of the season, then stick around for:
-a keg of Hopslam, jealously guarded since January just for this night of beautiful Bell’s beers
-a firkin of Hopslam, straight from Comstock, to be tapped at six o’ clock. This cask-conditioned, bar-top, hand-pulled stuff will go quickly. Make sure you stake out a bar stool!
-a keg of Bear Republic’s Ryevalry. This is an extremely limited release; a once-brewed batch that’s garnered high praise on Beer Advocate and RateBeer.
-music by the Rumpke Mountain Boys at 5:30
-food from the grill by Jerry and Andrew
Raise your glass with us to a pennant run for the Reds and a Summer full of warm nights and cold Oberon in the biergarten. Beer is good food.
