If you are not at the Blues Festival, come join us at SARA!

SARA is open 1 to 7 on Saturdays. I should be there around 2:00pm.


This Saturday, May 25th, is SARA’s first anniversary. Our first year has been a tremendous success and we thank you for that. To show our gratitude, we have a couple of things planned.

The tasting room will be open for regular hours, 1-7pm, but we have arranged to take over the entire front parking lot area. We’d like to invite you to come on out and picnic out front. Besides some light snacks, food will not be provided. But, feel free to bring grub for yourself and/or to share, bring friends, bring beach chairs, bring a smile and enjoy some great beer.

Saturday also brings the release of Appreciation, a beer we brewed specifically for this occasion. A Saison aged in red wine barrels with boysenberries, Appreciation is a beer we are excited and proud to share with you. Because we will only have 150 750mL bottles for sale ($18 each), there will be a two bottle per person limit. This limit applies to bottles consumed on site. Appreciation is a special beer, and our goal is to share it with as many of you as possible. There will be no draft version available, just bottles. With each Appreciation transaction you will also receive a raffle ticket giving you a chance to win two tickets to Firestone Walker’s sold-out Invitational beer festival the following weekend (June 1).

You can also expect to find a fresh batch of 831 IPA on draft for onsite enjoyment and growler fills. Other favorites will make an appearance alongside a couple of surprises from our small batch series (word is Jason Hansen has something quite special available on his “J” tap). So come on out and celebrate with us. The community we have all built here at SARA together is something so amazing. We can’t thank you all enough for including us in it. Sante!
