Mimsy Storytelling Tuesday, October 4 at 8 pm.

Mimsy knows that HEROES come in all shapes and sizes: from Wayne Gretzky, donating his blood for his team, to your pet gerbil Pebbles who was always there for you when your parents grounded you. Join us as we explore stories about HEROES, featuring two special guests, Lisa Kleinman and TJ Del Reno.

Mimsy is a monthly storytelling show in Brooklyn that works to find new ways to present stories, including our improv-based “backline” form. It's at 8 PM every first Tuesday of the month. And the only house storytelling team in the city.

Brewed Awakening book release party and Wandering Star brewery event November 10.

Save the date: on Thursday, November 10, we'll be hosting a double event. Josh Bernstein will be talking and reading from his new book about the craft beer revolution, Brewed Awakening. Since nothing goes better with a beer book release than beer, we're partnering with a brewery near and dear to Josh's (and our) heart, Wandering Star. We'll be pouring every beer they currently make, including some new ones. Here's the tentative lineup:

Zingari (a witbier with lemongrass, cardamon, fenugreek, and a touch of coriander)
Mild at Heart
Raindrop Pale Ale
Bash Bish Bocktoberfest (Bash Bish Bock but slightly altered)
Berkshire Hills 01201 (saison)
Butcher's Apron (English IPA)

We'll be offering everything at $1 off all night, and the brewers will be here. All in all, a brain-smashingly good time. More details as they come available.

Top Dogs return for all remaining Cal games!

After our wildly successful beta test of serving freshly grilled Top Dog hot dogs here at the bar, we've decided to bring them back for every remaining Cal game--and yes, in much greater quantities so we won't sell out so fast.

The deal is a dog and a beer for $12 (excepting beers priced $7 or more). You can also buy dogs separately for $7, and beer separately for whatever price it's listed at (Lagunitas is still available for the low low price of $5 a pint during Cal games).

The dogs are a lovely, juicy, spicy Calabrese and a mouth-wateringly rich lemon chicken. See you soon--the next game is against Oregon on Thursday, October 6 at 9 pm.

Shmaltz Brewing event September 20.

During Craft Beer Week, on Tuesday, September 20, at 7pm, Pacific Standard and Schmaltz will present "Not Too Drunk to Read," a Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah book release party, reading, and beer pairing. (Bonus: no actual reading is involved--Jeremy Cowan will be reading TO you from his recently released memoir, Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah.) More info about the book here:

Six Shmaltz beers will be on tap and on special (you can buy single pints or get the "Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah" sampler to try all six in 7.5 oz glasses), and we'll also have a free sampling of other beers that pair with the reading. There may also be a special appearance of the "Sammy Davis Jr.,"AKA a black-and-tan made with Genesis Ale! Copies of Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah will be available for purchase, and if you ask nicely, Jeremy will sign one for you. The tentative beer lineup:

--Coney Island Sword Swallower
--Coney Island Albino Python
--Coney Island Human Blockhead
--HE'BREW Genesis Ale
--HE'BREW Bittersweet Lenny's RIPA
--Shmaltz/Ithaca/Capt Lawrence Geektoberfest
Come on by to hear an interesting story and drink some interesting beer!
