Celebrate two years of Wayfinder Beer this coming weekend on Sunday, June 9th. Wayfinder may have opened over two and a half years ago, but the brewery released its first beer nearly eight months later in mid 2017.
Wayfinder Beer 2nd Birthday will take place from Noon-9:00pm with a day’s worth of fun. The kitchen will be bringing out an enormous double-barreled Texas smoker for some tasty bar-b-que. Wayfinder will be offering a special menu that includes pulled pork plates and sandwiches, plus picnic sides for your porcine pleasure.
To compliment the smoked pork, Brewmaster Kevin Davey has brewed up a special Birthday Beer that’s a tasty lager, served in a limited-edition birthday goblet. There will also be three additional beers as part of the brewery’s new releases ready for the 2nd Birthday!
Swing by at 3:00pm for a toast with free cake for everyone!
Here are details on all four new releases that will be available beginning on Thursday, June 6, 2019.
Birthday Beer – Special Lager
The brewers of Wayfinder combined our favorite techniques and ingredients of the year to create a truly unique lager beer. Our Special Edition Birthday Beer is double-decocted, stronger Vienna-malt based lager hopped judicially with classic and evolving hops from Europe, dry-hopped and aged excessively. Cheers to another year of lager beer. Can and Draft
Relapse Cold IPA
Clean, clear, hopped-up AF… Relapse IPA is a dank masterstroke of Anti-Hazy™ beer engineering. Extra-bright color and body courtesy of copious quantities of Bob’s Red Mill rice flour; kettle-and dry-hopped with fruit-forward varietels, including pineappley Chinooks from Michigan’s Hop Head Farms; cold-conditioned, krausened and filtered for maximum crushabilty…now in a can! Can and Draft
7 Centuries Kölsch
Brewed with pilsner & wheat malts, Hersbrucker hops and traditional ale yeast, Seven Centuries Kölsch is Germanic through and through. Fermented cool to deliver a crisp mouthfeel and a slightly tart finish. Named in honor of the Kölner Dom, Cologne’s majestic cathedral that took over 700 years to complete. Draft Only
A hazy, extremely pale yellow IPA hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Citra, Galaxy and Polaris. Juicy, tropical, citrus-lemon, mint and a bit of dank. Chronokinetic is a sticky, time-altering journey to the hop nebula. Draft Only
All ages welcome are welcome at the Wayfinder Beer 2nd Birthday Celebration.
