Fall Updates from Your Civil Friends
We are starting our seventh year of civility and great beers, both on tap and in cans. You can still fill your growlers with any of the twelve draft beers we feature each day, but don’t forget about cans to go. We only sell them at the pub for now, but the more you drink, the sooner we can launch our plan for global domination … or at least an expansion including our own canning line.
A canning line will bring our cost down so that you can find Civil Life beer at your favorite stores. But for now, don’t miss out on our continued great deal on cans to go. Six packs are just nine dollars. And you can walk away with a mixed case for just $32!
We currently have three great choices in cans: American Brown Ale, German Pilsner, and Vienna Lager. And come mid-September, our delicious Northern English Brown Ale will be available in cans.
And next time you are planning where to go with family and friends, remember that we always have some great wines by the glass. Not everyone drinks beer. We like to think we have a beer for every taste, but for dedicated wine lovers, we have excellent choices.
Drawing on years of experience with wine, Joe curates a changing list of great offerings from around the world. Take two unique wines currently available: Furmint and Refošk.
Furmint is a grape hailing from Hungary, where it often finds its way into the sweet wines of Tokay, the best of which rival French Sauternes. But Furmint also makes an excellent dry white wine. It’s the color of moonlight with racy acidity and some balancing minerality. Until recently, one rarely saw dry Furmints outside of Central Europe.
We also have a delicious red wine from Slovenia. Slovenia, you say? It turns out wine has been produced in that region since before the Romans introduced wine making to France. Refošk is a grape native to the Istrian peninsula, with dark skins and great intensity. This unique offering has lots of dark fruit and a hint of violets on the nose.
Bring your committed wine drinker friends along next time you come to the pub. Whether you love beer or wine, the Civil Life is a great place for friends and family to spend time together. And don’t forget to grab some cans to go! We raise our dimpled mugs, nonic pints, cider tumblers, and wine glasses to you, friends and valued customers. Cheers!
The Civil Blog has returned. It is predominantly authored by Civil Life Barman, Dr. Patrick Hurley, who can be found tending to our bar patrons on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. He is also responsible for tending to our draft lines, which is recognized as one of our most important tasks. Special guest writers will appear from time to time. We hope reading this blog will give you much insight about the Civil Life and most importantly help you understand a bit more about all of us that work here and the beers we put our hearts into.
