Hi all; I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed some great craft beers with dinner!
We at the Bucket Brewery had a lot for which to be thankful. On Thursday morning we got confirmation from our distributor that our first two customers are lined up! Billy’s Restaurant in Barrington, RI and Track 84 in Warwick, RI will both be serving our beer in the very near future.
I’ve been to Track 84 frequently and have always thought it was among the best beer bars in the state. Just a couple of weeks ago the Park Loop Porter was on tap for a party there. Dave, the owner, liked it and upon a tasting of the Rhode Scholar Kolsch, was convinced that Bucket beers would fit in well with his eclectic lineup. If you’re looking for Bucket, or even just a great place to have some interesting beers that you won’t find elsewhere, make sure you get down there for a drink.
I don’t get down to the East Bay as often as I’d like, but after looking at some reviews online and talking to some friends, I’m convinced that Billy’s is a great restaurant to try the Rhode Scholar Kolsch. Our distributor, Sage Cellars, specializes in finding restaurants that have cuisine that pairs well with the beer and wine they sell, so I’m very confident that this will be a great match for us. I’m planning a trip to Barrington for dinner and some Bucket soon, and I hope you do as well! Expect to see Bucket Rhode Scholar on tap by the end of the week.
Billy’s and Track 84 are just the beginning. We are busy getting samples of our beer out to some other great locations throughout Rhode Island. Keep and eye on this website and our Facebook page for the latest updates. I expect to get more confirmations over the coming days and weeks.
Needless to say, everyone here at the Bucket is very excited to see our beers about to become available. We’ve been working hard to make as much as we can, and have the brewery running at full capacity. There are full batches of Pawtucket Pail Ale and Rhode Scholar Kolsch kegged up, some Park Loop Porter just about ready to go into kegs and fermenters filled with Thirteenth Original Maple Stout and more Rhode Scholar that should be ready in a couple of weeks.
