‘Tis the Season!

‘Tis the season, folks! The season for gathering of friends and family, gift giving, and dark beers. For all that, we’ve gotcha covered.  Right now we’ve got a sweet merchandise sale happening, as well as some tasty dark beers!
Our t-shirts and tanks have dropped in price and are now only $12! What??? Oh yea! And our trucker hats are now only $18. Gift cards are available in any amount and are a super easy gift for the craft beer lover in your life. Whether you prefer to shop online, or pop into the tasting room to sip on some brews, we’ve got you covered in the gifting and beering departments.
Speaking of beering… Have you been in to taste this year’s Winterface?  It is like Christmas in a glass. Or maybe you’d like the Otter Cob Porter. This dark and tasty brew is an American Style robust porter that’s dark brown in color. It has a roasty flavor with hints of chocolate and coffee. We imagine you’ll want to fill a growler or two and sip on those in front of the fire.
We know all about the hustle and bustle of the season and hope you’ll take some time to stop in, have a beer or two and chat it up with our awesome beertenders.  Or hey, check our Facebook for the most up to date events… like the Ugly Sweater Party with Champagne Sunday on 12/22.  We’ve got the beer, the swag, and all the funs!
See ya around the tasting room!

Hurricane Harvey Relief Benefit Update

Giving back to our community is something we really pride ourselves on. And Tacoma… you really showed your generosity at our Hurricane Harvey Relief Benefit last weekend. We challenged our beertenders to a contest of who could sell the most raffle tickets and they did an amazing job. We raffles off six gift cards and various merchandise. The Sabia’s won the grand prize of two tickets to the final Sounders match of the regular season!
With everyone’s help, and love of live music (Padre Paul and His One Man Band), otter merchandise, and beer, we were able to send off a nice check to the United Way of Greater Houston.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Summer Instagram Contest + Live Music Monday Line-Up

Well, hello there!  Where has the time gone?  It seems to have been just yesterday we were telling you all about our newly hatched idea to host music on Monday evenings and now we are into the summer months…  wow!

With the summer months comes lots of outdoor adventures, just what we all love about the great Pacific Northwest (besides the amazing craft beer, that is).  So we’ve thought of a way in which you could take us with you on your adventures, post a picture to of one of our beer vessels Instagram with the tag, #otterspotter and be entered to win a $25 gift card in June, July, and August.  One super lucky winner, with the overall most creative picture, will win a $50 gift card at the end of August.  How fun is that?  All you have to do is take along your favorite growler and show us how you like to #KeepItOdd on your outdoor adventures!  Get our there and get posting and tagging!

Now onto our Music Monday line-up for June and July…  you are all in for a treat.  Ready?  Here goes:

June

6/5 – Champagne Sunday

6/12 – Kristen Marlo

6/19 – Alex Cockle

6/26 – Tim Monaghan

July

7/3 – Paul Handleman (Odd Otter’s very own beertender extraordinaire)

7/10 – Forest Buetel

7/17 – Kurt Lindsay

How’s that for some Monday fun?!?!  Music starts at 7pm.  Remember that we are all ages until 8:30pm, so bring the kiddos, grab some food from one of our neighboring restaurants (or bring your own) and enjoy an evening of local music and local craft beer!

We hope to see you soon!

March Music Madness is coming… and St. Patrick’s Day and Pint Club Launch and an MDA Fundraiser and Paints and Pints! Whew!

March is shaping up to be a busy month here at OOBC!  We’ve got a lot on the calendar and hope you’ll join us…  so, here goes!

You’ve heard of March Madness…  you know, the NCAA basketball stuff?  Well, around here we are introducing a month of Mondays with new musical performers for your listening pleasure!  Partner that with our craft beer, guest ciders, and Otter Hour (that’s happy hour in case you didn’t know) and you’ve got yourself a reason to wake up on Mondays!

So!  Here’s the line up for the OOBC March Music Madness every Monday in March from 7pm-9pm:

On March 27th we not only have Champagne Sunday performing, but we are also hosting a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Western Washington.  We will be donating 10% of tasting room sales and 50% of raffle ticket sales to this great and worthy cause!  Please join us!

And finally…  on 3/30 from 6-8pm, we will be hosting our second Paints and Pints with Uncorked Canvas!  We can only accommodate 25 painters so reserve your seat as soon as possible at https://uncorkedcanvas.com/event-registration/?ee=2548

Releasing the Blonde Otter + Maddy Dullum + DJ Pablo EscoBEER Karaoke + Ladies Pint Night = Good times!

Maddy Dullum

It’s been a while since we’ve caught up on the old Otter Blogg!  Well, we are back at it with lots of fun stuff planned…  in the tasting room and off-site!

First up though…

2/9/2017- Mark those calendars!

So much awesomeness in one night!  Please join us for the releasing of our latest craft beer creation, the Blonde Otter!  This beer is deep golden in color, moderately hopped with Cascade and Willamette hops.  It is well balanced with a good malt backbone…  and quite frankly, easy drinking!  Who doesn’t love an easy drinking beer?!?

From 7-9pm we will enjoy the beautiful sounds of Maddy Dullum.  She’s a talented singer/songwriter from Gig Harbor and we are so excited for her to play for you!

As with every Thirsty Thursday, we have our very own DJ Pablo EscoBeer bringing down the house with some super fun karaoke shenanigans!

No cover charge!

You bring your friends and we’ll provide the craft beer!
