Great Notion Brewing has quickly became known for its East Coast-style hoppy beers, as well as its dessert-and breakfast-worthy beers like Double Stack and Blueberry Muffin. For the first time, Great Notion will open for a special breakfast-themed beer and food pairing fest featuring its own and guest beers and small breakfast plates on Sunday, September 25th, from 9am until 1030am and 11am to 1230pm. Tickets are $50, all-inclusive, and limited to 75 per seating. Tickets are online now at Merctickets.com/go/BeerForBreakfast
Featuring Double Stack (an imperial stout with coffee and maple syrup) and Blueberry Muffin (a Berliner Weisse dry-hopped with actual blueberry muffins), the brewers will devise four more beers that pair with the ante meridiem. Think flavors like mimosas, belinis, and, no doubt, bacon. The guest beer lineup will include “Porridge,” an oatmeal pale ale with cinnamon and raisins made by brand new Scout Brewing; a chili beer from a beloved-though-unnamed Oregon brewery in the vein of a Bloody Mary; and a Tepache mimosa from Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider. Two California breweries heralded for their coffee infused beers—San Diego’s Modern Times and San Francisco’s Cellarmaker—are also sending exceptionally rare kegs.
