Thur update: Southern Prohibition launch party at Blind Bear tonight, Groupon for Ole Miss football tickets including Memphis game, Redbirds’ 2015 exhibition announced

Tonight is the Southern Prohibition beer launch party at the Blind Bear Speakeasy at 8 PM. You’re invited to dress as a gangster, flapper, or your favorite Southern Prohibition beer. I decided to do a little research on the three featured beers at tonight’s party:

– Devil’s Harvest is a 5.8% alcohol by volume (ABV) American Pale Ale. This beer is brewed with a Munich Malt and four hop additions. Untappd describes it as “a real hop bomb.”

– Suzy B is a 5.3% ABV American Blonde Ale. She’s a dirty blonde, unfiltered, but said to be an easy drinker.

– Jack the Sipper is the brewery’s tribute to England. This 5% ABV Extra Special/Strong Bitter uses 100% English hops and English malts. Flavor is said to be toasty and fruity and describes the beer as “a true UK experience down South.”

You can learn more about the beers (and see the labels if you want to dress like one of the beers) at SoPro’s website.

There will be a prize for best costume, blackjack tables, live music by Jen and Levin Band, and beer, drink, and food specials. If you’ve seen the photos on the dining room wall (look for me in gangster attire holding cards) and want to get on there, Joey Miller will be there taking photos.

There’s a currently-running Groupon to attend one of three Ole Miss home games at a discount price.

At this point you’re probably thinking, Wait a minute, am I reading the right blog? You HATE Ole Piss, Paul! You think it’s the douchiest football school, with the douchiest football fans, in the entire SEC! In the entire nation, even! Why are you encouraging people to support them?

I’m not.

You see, one of the three options is the game against Memphis, on Saturday, September 27. Memphians who want to travel down to that shithole and support the Tigers amidst all the argyle-wearing d-bags and sundress-wearing d-baguettes can do so at a discount price ($42 for a $55 value ticket).

The Redbirds have announced an exhibition game for April 3, 2015. They will play the St. Louis Cardinals at AutoZone Park. It will be the final warm-up game before the Cards begin their 2015 regular season.

I’ve got a few more hours of work, then it will be time for another four-day weekend. I will be at the Southern Prohibition party tonight and I do not have to leave early to rest up for Friday at work, so I’m going to try to push it late night a bit. Back tomorrow with another post, although perhaps not a sober post or one at the regularly scheduled time.
