Pat's Farewell Tap Takeover

Wednesday, July 24, 2019 5:00pm

Our dear friend Pat Jansen is seizing the opportunity to live a life beyond moving kegs after putting all of his time, love, attention and questionable sense of humor into building the Growler Gallery® culture over the past five years. The Ray's staff would like to cordially invite the entire Ray-borhood to join us in thanking Pat for his dedication and wishing him the very best. Come join us in giving him the proper sendoff on Wednesday, July 24th, when Pat will be putting together a tap list to express his love for a few of the breweries that make up the industry he loves so much.

Tap list for the eve:

Eagle Park Brewing, Seldom Seen - Our own Paddy J is seldom seen without a smile and nor will you be after sipping on Pat’s good friends’ Cashmere and Motueka hopped concoction. New England-style IPA, 8% ABV

New Glarus Brewing, Two Women - This beer symbolizes so much that inspired Pat to work in the beer industry. New Glarus is the standard in Wisconsin craft beer and their respect and mastery of Old-World styles such as German Lagers means so much to our original Growler Gallery Guru. Pale Lager, 5% ABV

Third Space Brewing, Happy Place - Pat’s appreciation for the all the Gallery’s loyal patrons is defined by his inclusion of this Pale Ale. You have made the Ray-borhood his Happy Place and he in turn has done everything to make it yours. Pale Ale, 5.3% ABV

Unibroue, La Fin du Monde - The excellence of triple fermentation through a blend of special yeasts gives this malt beverage an exquisitely robust flavor of exceptional refinement. “It’s the end of the world as we know it” – R.E.M. Belgian-style Tripel, 9% ABV

Component Brewing Company, Rose’s Sour - Craft beer’s draw is beyond experimental beverages. It is friendships that makes the most lasting memories and that is no different for our Pat. Pat could not say goodbye without inviting his friends from Component Brewing Company to the party. Rose is a Kettle sour with Mango and Raspberry added. Tart and refreshing. Fruited Sour, 4.6% ABV

Untitled Art, Chocolate Macaroon Imperial Stout - Brewed with cocoa nibs, coconut flakes and lactose, because how can we pay tribute to Pat without a little sweetness. Stout, 12% ABV
