Universale is the Beer of the Month at Fremont’s Red Door, starting tonight! Not only is this great promo for Fremont Brewing, patrons get to drink our beer for cheap: $3.75 a pint or $13.50 for a pitcher.
Our Universale Pale and the Organic Berry Pale Ale (“Mystere de la Passion”) received top rankings at the Fremont Oktoberfest a couple weeks ago. Both were rated 4 out of 5 on the special iPhone app created for the event. No beer got 5 out of 5, making me question the ratings criteria. But whatever. Let’s just say the discriminating sophisticates who went to Oktoberfest thought we were pretty good.
Meanwhile, back at the brewery, the Urban Beer Garden is going strong. The Red Door’s old swanky furniture provides intimate little niches in an otherwise pretty industrial space. I brought in more toys to entertain the little ones accompanying the pick-up-from-daycare crowd so that’s good. On tap today: Nitro Portage Bay Porter (new), All Salmon IPA (new), Little Woody Oak-Aged Pale, and Universale. Reminder: the Urban Beer Garden will be closed next Thursday, Oct. 8 for a previously scheduled event (see below) but will re-open on Friday, Oct. 9.
