You math people know exactly what Saturday is.
For the rest of us numerically challenged folks, a friendly reminder that it’s Pi Day – a celebration of the mathematical phenomenon that is Pi, or 3.14159 (followed by many more – in fact, infinite – digits).
Anchoring the event will be a number of special release drafts available for purchase, including the brewery’s Blueberry Cobbler, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Carrot Cake, and Coconut Cream Pie offerings.
The brewery is also doing some timed tappings on Saturday – cleverly at 3:14 p.m. – of its Bourbon Barrel-Aged Muy Bonita and Bourbon Barrel-Aged Save Some Room For Later.
“This is always one of our more highly-anticipated events,” said Mitch Wilkison, the brewery's Digital Content Coordinator, in a chat with New Times. “We’ve been doing this for about five years and folks have come to count on really bold, natural ingredient-driven, dessert-inspired beers. Even if you don’t love sweet beers, it’s still a cool experience and you’ll find a flavor you like.”
If you’re looking to pair your sweet brew with actual pie, you’re in luck. There will be a pie flight pairing, featuring four four-ounce beers paired with mini pies, including a Pineapple Ginger Snap Crisp with Toasted Macadamia Nuts, Blueberry Mascarpone filled Lemon Glazed Croissant, and more.
For those wanting to take their love of pie to the next level, there will be a pie-eating contest (with prizes) at 7 p.m. You’ll want to sign up early as it’s only open to the first eight registrants.
