Turkey Day Hours, Casks & Cyber Monday Deal

Thanksgiving is less than 48 hours away so we hope you’ve got your stretchy pants locked and loaded. Remember to give thanks for craft beer, and stock up the traveling cooler (or stuff the Turkey with Prozac) to ease the insanity of those family get-togethers.


Family coming in to town and need an excuse to sneak away? We’ll be open as usual for tours, serving up samples Weds. before the holiday (and we’re even throwin’ in a special Ghoulash cask you won’t want to miss).

We’ll be closing up shop on Thanksgiving to give our folks the chance to get some grub themselves, but we’ll be back in business for tours on Friday and Saturday after Turkey Day. In honor of Black Friday, we’ll be servin’ up samples of Happy Ending – an imperial stout, black in color – to help ya finish off your holiday with a smile on your face. Samples are first come, first serve so get ’em before ya black out.

El Danko is Ready to Bring Out The Gimp!

We know y’all have been salivating for your turn to dance with our newest Dank Tank, and we’re hoping unleash The Gimp before the year’s end. Our brewers have been marinating on the latest and greatest freak show for a while, and we are getting ready to party!

This Old Ale is meant to be stashed for a few months to mature in your cellar, but once broken out its submissive deliciousness will be giving off sweet scents of caramel and toffee, and warming sensations of alcohol and malt balanced with hops. We’ve got to warn ya, this brew gags up 10.3% ABV so we suggest easing in to The Gimp with caution.

We’re hoping to debut the spankster before the year is out, but until we’re ready to crack the seal on the cage, we’ll tease ya with the unveil of  The Gimp’s label for a little back-story on the brew.   

Festive Debuts Just in Time for Tacky Sweater Season

This weather is a wee bit nipply, but our brewers have just the solution to help ya thaw out your buns.  We’ve turned up the heat with the launch of our Festive Ale 22-oz bombers which’ll be makin’ their way to shelves early this week. Six-packs began decorating  shelves in mid-October. We’ll also be pourin’ this heady goodness at tours in the Tasting Room throughout the next few weeks.

For those unfamiliar with the Catch and Release brew, get excited cause this one’ll get you in the mood to party holiday style, while  keeping ya warm and toasted all season long.  Brewed with generous amounts of malt, coupled with a taint of cinnamon and mace (that’s the shell of nutmeg), this 8.6-percenter will surely have you ready to deck the halls and jingle your….bells (pervs).

Kick off the festivities with a peek through our latest photos of Festive on the line or video evidence of the bombers getting a hand (wax) job.
