…and we’ll even be opening early on Thanksgiving day so that you Green Bay Packer faithful may enjoy the 12:30 game against the Lions.
There will be no trivia this Wednesday (11/27), but shall return as normal the following Wednesday (12/4). Here’s a picture of a chimpanzee smoking a cigar to tide you over until then. Happy Thanksgiving!
They say that number two is the liquor anniversary, or at least we say that, as Uncle Barry’s celebrates its second birthday next Thursday by offering up every bottle of booze in the house at $1 per shot from 9:00pm until midnight. Thanks to everyone who has come through over the past two years, without your boozy ways we never would have made it this long. Come by and get sloshed for almost no money — it’s our gift to you in celebration of us.
Residents of our fair planet Earth have no doubt noticed the season changing from summer to fall and anyone who claims otherwise is a filthy liar. In that spirit, a bunch of seasonally minded menu items are afoot here at ol’ Uncle Barry’s, including Lakefront Brewery’s excellent Pumpkin Lager and yearly staple Founders Breakfast Stout new on tap. Additionally, two new cocktails have been developed for the season: The White Flame, an autumn-themed margarita featuring mezcal and apple brandy along with fresh lime juice and simple syrup and The Dominic DeCoco, made of Wild Turkey bourbon, creme de cassis, lemon juice and St. Germain. Come enjoy your lovely seasonal beverage with one of Miss Kati’s spicy habanero pickles. As always, we look forward to filling you with our fluids.
NFL football is upon us once again, and as always, the Direct TV football package is up and running. We’ll have every Redskins and Packers game up on the big screen plus access to every other game of the season on the TV’s. Feel free to ask the bartender to put on any game you feel like watching. Call ahead if you want to watch a particular game with a group. Packers kick off tomorrow (9/8) against San Francisco at 4:25 while the Redskins open Monday Night Football the following evening. Hooray!
As promised, those who completed our first annual 31 Beers of August challenge have now been immortalized on the hallowed walls of Uncle Barry’s. Congratulations to everyone who played and those who won, with a special nod to Nick Hudak and Saim Ghouse, who finished the affair with astounding quickness. You may now commence regular drinking.
Tampa, Florida’s Cigar City Brewing Co. has teamed up with Belgian brewery De Proef to produce the Tropical Tripel, an exotic take on a classic Belgian tripel ale. ‘Trop Trip’ is a notably funky beer, as drinkers will notice hints of pineapple and peach in compliment to the ale’s yeasty Belgian flavor. We only have one keg of this magical elixir and it won’t last long, so come check it out while the getting’s good. For more, including a video of Matt discussing the finer points of the beer, head over to the bar’s Facebook page, where it has proved easier to share videos.
