Class of 2017 Imperial Stout
When the Anderson School Brewers were brainstorming about the special beer release for the Anderson School's 2nd Birthday, they decided on a traditional Strong Russian Stout, full of bold, roasted flavors. Then they took this Stout and aged it for six months in Hogshead Whiskey barrels until it imparted perfect hints of vanilla, oak and brown sugar.
Special Techniques: Hogshead Whiskey Barrel-Aged
Malts: Maris Otter, Special Roast, Black, Roasted Barley, Crystal 80
Limited quantities of bottles available for purchase at the Anderson School Market, while supplies last. $12.50 for a 500mL bottle
Pat McHenry and the Chinook Hooks from 7 p.m. 'til 10 p.m.
Pat McHenry started playing music in the smallish town of Spokane, WA — halfway between Seattle and Missoula — where his eagerness for greater things quickly found him playing in up and coming NW bands. After playing in SXSW 2006, he decided to start blazing his own path. He formed now defunct band Mon Chéri with friends in 2008, taking duties on singing, guitar playing, and songwriting. After many shows with the band, local, regional, and national coverage, touring adventures, and being ‘found’ by MTV he decided to go further with identifying his own sound and strike out with a solo project.
His latest album, Chinook Hooks, self-produced and recorded in Seattle at Brother Man Studio, represents his southern roots and songwriting prowess, displaying an incredible ability to genre-jump into a traditional '60s country groove from previous latin jazz-pop. It is a healthy dose of Honky Tonk with All American Rock aftertastes, relatable story telling, catchy melodies, and winsome composition. Pat's music has been featured on TV, Radio, Independent movies, and a few commercials (Comcast, Foxnews, MTV). His latest sync with ABC's Cougar Town featured a song he wrote, for a previous album, called 'Go On Go On'. His original song 'Precious Thing' was featured in Global Credit Union's 2014 credit card campaign.
