Introducing Damon Miears

damon

As written by Jimmy Han:

This is Damon Miears, one of our regulars at Beer Belly. You might have seen him at the bar drinking a tasty craft brew or snacking on our juicy Fried Chicken. We got to talking and it turns out he has a passion for wood work. Which means it was only natural that we decided to collaborate and make some hand-crafted bottle openers for Beer Belly.

Hand-numbered and limited to 69, we decided to use a “Wenge” dark wood from Africa for its density and grain pattern. Dark, dense and grainy…. like Damon’s favorite beer, The Bruery Grey Monday. We hope you enjoy this quality hand-crafted opener that Damon has put so much blood, sweat, and tears into making. I know … Read More

One Night Stand: Wait So What Do We Get?

ONS_Logo_2014_BlogReady

With the 2013 program wrapped up I thought it would be a good time to answer the question of just what exactly ONS members received this past week.

First off is the ‘membership’ card:

This card entitles a member to a few benefits…some completely thought out, and some that could still use some work.

Membership includes:

  • 10% off for the rest of the year
  • Reservations for two on ONS event days (we typically don’t take any reservations when we have an event)
  • Access to exclusive events (this is the part that we’re still working on)
  • And whatever else we come up with that we think sounds fun

We also gave out a merch package that included a growler, a variety of glasses (the drinking kind), a cooler … Read More

It’s Back: Beer Belly One Night Stand 2014 Program!

ONS_Promo_2_2014

Click here to see the taplist and skip the mumbo jumbo

We’re back!

Our One Night Stand program is a way of getting to know some of the most exciting craft breweries around us. Now in its third year we’ve tweaked the format ever so slightly, but the objective is still the same: drink great beer, and meet new drinking buddies.

In addition, if you make it to 10 out of 12 One Night Stand events then you’ll get a special gift at the end of the year and be inducted into a fairly exclusive group. This is quite a commitment though, and is not for the feeble. It’s okay though, worst case scenario…you drink beer!

All the details of participation are below, and we will … Read More
