Enjoy the Holidays at Saint Arnold

In between your holiday feasts at home this year, let us do some of the cooking for you. Come on out and enjoy lunch at the brewery!

On Wednesday and Friday of Thanksgiving week, we'll be serving our Daily Lunch Special only, which includes two courses and beer until 2:00 PM. Included are all of our regular beers on tap as well as Christmas Ale on cask - our original seasonal beer, dry hopped with Cascade.

We've also brought up some of our rare special beers from the cellar. These beers will be available separately for purchase. Here's what we'll have Thanksgiving week (while supplies last!). Special beers will vary throughout the holiday season.
Pumpkinator 2013
20th Anniversary Ale
Bishop's Barrel No. 4 - Bourbon Barrel Weizenbock with Cocoa Nibs

You can prepay now for these days to ensure your spot in the event of a sell out. This will let you show up anytime between 11:00 AM and 1:15 PM and enjoy lunch and beers (and it also helps our kitchen out).

Now for the caveats. There aren't any refunds on this. If you need to add a person and we have sold out, we won't be able to accommodate. Please arrive before 1:15 PM. If we sell out, we will post it here.

We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day. We will be open regular lunch and tour hours all other days during the holiday season. Here are the menus and reservation links:

It's Sailing Santa Season!

It's that time of year again when our Christmas Ale blends with Elissa IPA and spices to create Sailing Santa, a beer originally developed by you, our customers. Years ago, people on tours began asking us to blend the two beers. We're not certain who first called this concoction Sailing Santa, but we suspect several of you claim to be the originator.

We have now added spices to the beer to add to the holiday experience of enjoying a pint. We dry hop Sailing Santa with Cascade and dry spice with cinnamon, resulting in a pleasantly hoppy strong dark ale.

Sailing Santa is packaged in our 22 oz. bomber bottles, so look for it at your favorite store with the other large format bottles.

The 2014 Foamraiser at the Orange Show Monument
Saturday, November 29 - 7:00 - 10:00 PM

Every year, we team up with the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art for their Foamraiser, an evening of music, art and beer. This event is a great opportunity to hang out at the one-of-a-kind Orange Show Monument, while supporting its preservation.

We'll be there with the beer (we've got something special up our sleeve), and live music will be provided by The Wandering Bufaleros and Fire Moth. Hilarious comedy sketches will grace the side stage.

Get your tickets in advance now for $20 or purchase them for $25 at the door. Get all the information and tickets on their website.

Santo De Mayo 5K - Sunday, May 3

Next May, we're bringing our love of beer and love of running together for our first Santo De Mayo 5K, and we want you in on the fun. The run will start at the brewery at 8:30 AM, snake through Downtown and wind up back here - where we'll be conveniently waiting for you with beers.

Your entry will include a commemorative Santo De Mayo 5K pint glass, a commemorative dry fit style shirt, three tasty beers, chip timing, and a commemorative race bib.

Entry is $35. If you're not into running, you can still join us - $20 will get you a Beer & Party Pass.

Register for the Santo De Mayo 5K!

Pub Nights at Saint Arnold

On Pub Nights, we open our tour hall from 5:00 - 10:00 PM strictly as a bar and let you choose what you want to purchase.

Pub Nights are strictly 21 and up.

Tailgating at the Stadium

Like we always do, we will be tailgating prior to each home game of our local professional football team. You know the one. Their colors are War Red, Freedom White and Rich Stainless Blue. Our tailgate is located in the Platinum lot - you can look for our red van and trailer and our new Saint Arnold flag flying high.

To come by and enjoy this private party, you must be on our exclusive guest list. To get past the velvet rope, make sure to email kathy@saintarnold.com between Monday and Wednesday each game week. We do have a limit to how many beautiful people we can accommodate, so the earlier each week you email the better.
