Alvarado Street Spotlight
Join us from 17:00 on Friday, April 19 for a spotlight on one of California’s most exciting breweries: Alvarado Street Brewery & Grill! There will be a selection of six delicious beers on tap, from berliner weisse to hoppy treats and an imperial stout, all flown over fresh from Monterey, California.
The family-owned and operated Alvarado Street Brewery first opened in May 2014, and have since expanded to a second, larger brew house in Salinas and a mixed-fermentation taproom Yeast of Eden in Carmel-by-the-Sea. They are adept at making a wide range of styles, including the hoppy, hazy, yeast-driven beers that rely on flavours and aromas produced in fermentation to complement the hop character.
You may have tried some Alvarado at our anniversary party last fall, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring you a wider selection now.
There is no admission fee for this event. To ensure that everyone gets served quickly and efficiently, we will not be offering tasting trays on this evening. Instead, every Alvarado Street beer will be served in festival-style 0,2L pours. We hope this format will minimize waiting for drinks, while still allowing you to fully enjoy these fantastic beers.
See you soon!
The Rare Barrel Preview / Meet the Brewer
Due to shipping delays beyond our control, we unfortunately had to reschedule The Rare Barrel Tap Takeover / Bottle Release + Piri's to Saturday, May 25.
We are very sorry about this delay, and know it may inconvenience many of you. In our effort to make up for it, we’re bringing even more Rare Barrel to Germany and adding a second event on the original date of Saturday, May 4!
The original Rare Barrel Tap Takeover / Bottle Release & Piri’s event will still be taking place a few weeks later, on Saturday, May 25.
Thanks to The Rare Barrel co-founder Alex Wallash saving the day, we have been able to organize this preview open bottle tasting with 0,1L pours of six additional bottled beers not available at the tap takeover! Alex will also still be here on May 4 to talk yeast, bacteria, and fruit with you.
- Bottle pours of six different beers not available at the tap takeover
- 0,1L pours for 2,80€ each
- We'll start pouring at 17:00 & continue until the beer runs out
The quantity of bottles will be limited, so come early to make sure you get a chance to try some of these beers.
We hope to see you there!
Event #1: The Rare Barrel Preview & Meet the Brewer on Saturday, May 4
Event #2: The Rare Barrel Tap Takeover / Bottle Release + Piri's on Saturday, May 25
The Rare Barrel Tap Takeover / Bottle Release + Piri's
Beginning at 15:00 on Saturday, May 25, we are thrilled to invite you to a Tap Takeover / Bottle Release with The Rare Barrel, an incredible all-sour beer company from Berkeley, California!
We will offer 8 beers on tap and 11 in bottles, with a massive lineup of 16 unique Rare Barrel beers in total. To continue our precedent of sour beer + fried chicken = joy, Julian and the wonderful Piri's Burgers crew will also be here with a pop-up.
Since we opened the bar, we have worked hard on showcasing a wide range of sour beers on our taps and the bottle list, aiming to bring these unique and complex creations to as many people as possible. Coming from the West Coast ourselves, The Rare Barrel has long been on our wishlist, and we’re very excited to finally bring it to Germany for the first time ever this spring. All of these beers will be available exclusively at Muted Horn, direct from California!
Founders Jay Goodwin and Alex Wallash met while attending university, started home-brewing in their apartment and soon decided that they would one day start a brewery together. Goodwin started working at The Bruery, where he worked his way from a production assistant to brewer, eventually becoming the head of their barrel aging program.
The Rare Barrel team produced its first batch of beer in February 2013, and in the past six years, they have taken home numerous awards from the Great American Beer Festival, the World Beer Cup, and the Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer.
The Rare Barrel was named for "pH1", a barrel used to make the original batch of La Folie in 2000 by New Belgium Brewing based out of Fort Collins, Colorado. In homage of the original "Rare Barrel", every year the brewery along with its customers and peers select the best barrel of beer and name it "The Rare Barrel" for that year. The "pH1" barrel was gifted to The Rare Barrel by New Belgium in 2015 and as of 2016 is currently active, used to age dark sour beer.
It’s a beautiful story, and you can geek out over it with us here: https://www.beeradvocate.com/articles/13571/the-rarest-barrel-ph1s-influence-and-inspiration/.
