“Game of Thrones” Special Release from Ommegang! – 3/27/13

posted by admin on March 27, 2013

Today’s big news is that we will be receiving the special Game of Thrones release from Brewery Ommegang in time for the March 31st Season Premier of the cult HBO series!  Set to arrive on our shelves Thursday afternoon, the Ommegang Iron Throne Blonde Ale is the first beer in a series of four brews planned as a collaboration between the brewery and HBO.

 

For anyone unfamiliar with Brewery Ommegang, the brewery is located in Cooperstown, NY, and has a fantastic selection of Belgian-style beers in its arsenal already.  They planned the Iron Throne Blonde Ale along with HBO as a tribute to the Lannister family from Game of Thrones, all of whom are blonde – get it? – and who currently occupy the Iron Throne, making them the most wealthy and powerful family in the series.

 

If you plan to watch the Season Premiere Sunday night, be sure to pick up one of these limited edition releases, and might I suggest you drink it from a really elaborate chalice.  Cheers!

posted by admin on February 25, 2013

Thanks for your patience, friends!  Corner Stone Craft Beer & Wine officially opened its doors on Friday, February 15th, and we had a lot of fun in our opening weekend!  Some highlights:

 

  • Our first growler purchaser also became our first growler refill!
  • We were honored to be a stop on the world-famous Michelle & Ken’s OTE Walk

 

A big thanks to our neighbors from Upper Cup for not only being among our first customers, but also sending all of their customers down to check us out!  Thanks also to our friends from OTENA, CS Gallery and the Roscoe Room for joining us on our opening weekend!

 

Now for the blog….I am excited to be writing this, as it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.  I will update it frequently with info on our featured beers & wines, stories from our travels, and anything I learn along the way as we get up and running!

 

For now, I will leave you with this…the Breckenridge Willett Barrel-Aged Vanilla Porter currently on draft has the perfect balance of wood, whiskey, vanilla and chocolate and is not to be missed!  Get it while you can.

 

Stay tuned for more!
