Alex's Lemonade, Gold Cup, VHS, Pedalin'...

Tomorrow, Friday, starting at Noon we have Left Hand Brewing Flights. PoleStar Pils, Nitro Milk Stout, Great JuJu, Fade to Black and more. 

Saturday, July 25 is our Alex's Lemonade Stand Day. It said it was Sunday in the City Beat ad because Jeff is overworked and not so great with dates but it's Saturday! That means we are giving 20% of our sales to this amazing organization that supports childhood cancer research. We will have Lemon Pudding Cake from our Baking Team as well as a Chef Joseph lemon savory special. Jeff has requested a Lemony Pizza. We will see if THAT will come to fruition ;)

Sunday, July 26 has *two* events happening, sort of. The Gold Cup Final, which is Mexico vs. Jamaica, is at 4:30. Would have preferred a US v. Mexico showing but Jamaica has never made it to the final and Mexico is doing well so should be a solidly fun game. After that's over it will be time for our newest installment of VHS SUNDAYS. Have you ever seen our VHS collection? It's stupid good. We will show one selection at 6:30 and another at 8:30, or thereabouts.

Looking ahead, one of our most favorite local farms, Suzie's Farm, is hosting their annual Pedal, Pick and Grin event, a fun family-time of music, veggie picking and bike riding! We are organizing / hosting a ride down there to their farm in the Tijuana River Basin. Interested? Check out the details on our Facebook event page. Bonus: One of our favorite Panama 66 staff guys (Gary Hankins) is performing!

Gold Cup, Tour de France and more..

We're working on on plan for the Gold Cup and Tour de France. 
Here's where it sits so far...

At least on the bar TV

and everything after the group stages on the BIG SCREEN w/ sound.

As usual...


Tuesday 07 July
4:00 PM – Panama v. Haiti (FOX Sports 2, Univision Deportes) - on bar tv
6:30 PM – United States v. Honduras (FOX Sports 1, UniMás, Univision Deportes)
Seraing to Cambrai, 223.5 km
Of this nearly 139-mile stage, what matters most is the 8 miles ofcobblestones—more than half of which come in the last 16 miles.
What does it feel like? Bone jarring. No American cobblestone street can match the centuries-old pavé of northern France. It's like trying to maintain 20 to 25 mph riding between railroad tracks.

Wednesday 08 July
5:00 PM – Costa Rica v. Jamaica (FOX Sports 2, UniMás, Univision Deportes) - on bar tv
7:30 PM – El Salvador v. Canada (FOX Sports 2, UniMás, Univision Deportes) - on bar tv
4:00 PM – Trinidad & Tobago v. Guatemala (FOX Sports 2, Univision Deportes)
6:30 PM – Mexico v. Cuba (FOX Sports 1, UniMás, Univision Deportes,)

Friday 10 July
3:00 PM – Honduras v. Panama (FOX Sports 2, UniMás, Univision Deportes)
5:30 PM – United States v. Haiti (FOX Sports 1, UniMás, Univision Deportes)

Saturday 11 July
3:30 PM – Jamaica v. Canada (FOX Sports 2, UniMás, Univision Deportes,) - on bar tv
6:00 PM – Costa Rica v. El Salvador (FOX Sports 2, UniMás, Univision Deportes) - on bar tv

Sunday 12 July
3:30 PM – Trinidad & Tobago v. Cuba (FOX Sports 2, Univision Deportes) - on bar tv
6:00 PM – Guatemala v. Mexico (FOX Sports 2, Univision, Univision Deportes)

Monday 13 July
4:00 PM – Haiti v. Honduras (Fox Sports 1, UniMás, Univision Deportes,)
6:30 PM – Panama v. United States (Fox Sports 1, UniMás, Univision Deportes)
Our plan is to open bar only at 6pm for this one and close at 9pm. BYOFood.

Tuesday 14 July
3:00 PM – Jamaica v. El Salvador (Fox Sports 1, UniMás, Univision Deportes) - on bar tv
5:30 PM – Canada v. Costa Rica (Fox Sports 1, UniMás, Univision Deportes) - on bar tv
Tarbes to La Pierre-Saint-Martin, 167 km
Following the initial rest day, and with no warmup ascents before the summit, this first mountaintop finish will likely put an end to someone's Tour dreams.
What does it feel like? The Col de Soudet is rarely used in the Tour, but at 15 km and 7.4 percent average grade, it's a legitimate Grand Tour climb. Get a taste on the 85 miles from Reno, Nevada, to the top of 8,340-foot Monitor Pass.

Wednesday 15 July
3:00 PM – Cuba v. Guatemala (Fox Sports 2, UniMás, Univision Deportes) - on bar tv
5:30 PM – Mexico v. Trinidad & Tobago (Fox Sports 2, UniMás, Univision Deportes)

Thursday 16 July
Lannemezan to Plateau de Beille, 195 km
This one's a killer: four major climbs and four more stages after this until the rest day. The summit finish on Plateau de Beille starts out steep, with 2.5 miles averaging almost 9 percent, and backs off only slightly from there.
What does it feel like? This stage has more than 11,500 feet of climbing. That's five full repeats of Boulder's Flagstaff Mountain, starting at University Bikes on 9th and Pearl.

Saturday 18 July
2:00 PM – _________ v. __________ (Fox, Univision, Univision Deportes)
5:00 PM – _________ v. __________ (Fox Sports 2, Univision, Univision Deportes)

Sunday 19 July
MetLife Stadium – East Rutherford, New Jersey
1:30 PM – _________ v. __________ (Fox Sports 1, Univision, Univision Deportes)
4:30 PM – _________ v. __________ (Fox Sports 1, Univision, Univision Deportes)

Wednesday 22 July
3:00 PM – _________ v. ___________ (Fox Sports 1, UniMás)
6:00 PM – _________ v. ___________ (Fox Sports 2, UniMás, Univision Deportes)

Friday 24 July
Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne to La Toussuire-Les Sybelles, 138 km
The race is likely to be won or lost today. At just 138 km, the course climbs literally from the start, which favors opportunistic attackers. Four climbs, including the hellish Croix de Fer, culminate in the summit finish at La Toussuire.
What does it feel like? Roughly 55 of the 138 km in this stage go up. That's the same distance as Hawaii's Haleakala volcano, but at a steeper grade. If you've ever suffered up Haleakala, think of the same distance at 7 percent average, instead of a mere 5.

Saturday 25 July
1:00 PM – _________ v. ___________ (Fox Sports 2, Univision, Univision Deportes)
TOUR DE FRANCE: STAGE 20, 5pm & 9pm
Modane Valfrejus to Alpe d'Huez, 110.5 km
If standings are close, the final ascent of Alpe d'Huez could be this year's climax. The long descent from the Col de la Croix de Fer will likely bring splits back together, so expect ceasefire from the big guns. But at the base of Alpe, last-chance stage-win hopefuls will battle the GC riders to the top for bragging rights.
What does it feel like? There's no real climb in the U.S. quite like Alpe d'Huez, but the Strava Classic segment of New York's Whiteface Mountain is remarkably close in distance (8 miles) and total ascent (3,500 feet).

Sunday 26 July
Lincoln Financial Field – Lincoln, Pennsylvania
4:30 PM – _________ v. ___________ (Fox Sports 1, Univision, Univision Deportes)

Tuesday, June 30, 2015


We will be CLOSED on the FOURTH of JULY
Go enjoy yourself.
Then, we'll be open on Sunday, July 5th for the WWC Final.

Coachella Valley Brewing Co Showcase

Chris Anderson has been brewing for over 20 years he has won world beer cup, great Alaska beer and Balreywine festival best in show and also won the alpha king as a commercial brewer edging out Lagunitas, Russian River, Sierra Nevada, and Bear Republic, As a Homebrewer he has collected over 460 medals and awards to include Best in show at Brewmasters Challenge, Americas Finest City, Fur Rendezvous, and the Alaska State Fair. He has 19 NHC medals as well as two final round gold medals for sour beers. Much of his commercial experience comes from working at Midnight Sun Brewing Company under Gabe Fletcher who is now with Anchorage Brewing Co. and Broken Tooth Brewing Company both in Anchorage, Alaska. He is a classically trained chef and graduated with a culinary arts degree. This background allows him to use my palate to create a subtle layering of flavors rather than muddling his creations as is the case with many of the beers offered today. He is now the owner and brewmaster of Coachella Valley Brewing Company. A fast growing craft brewery specializing in the use of locally sourced ingredients from Coachella Valleys agricultural Mecca the brewery is located in Thousand Palms, Ca. 20 mikes east of Palm Springs. This far he has brewed over 40 different beers and 1500 barrels in our first 10 months.  

This Saturday from 3-4pm Chis will be at BLAH serving a guided tour of 6 of his beers, including 3 which were Fermented with a wild yeast Torrulaspora Delbrukii isolated by White Labs Troels Prahl in Dennark on an a abandoned apple orchard and brought to the US for propogation. The result is dominant bubble gum, banana, mango esters. Come join us as we learn more about yeast, brewing and the amazing things the Coachella Valley has to offer--including craft beer.
