Steam Donkey will be closed today as we remember the fallen. We encourage you to spend your day doing what you want to do, the best way to honor those who are not here and have laid down their lives is to live yours. If you know a Gold Star family raise a glass to their loved one today.

We will reopen at our normal hours on Wednesday.

Thank you

**Saturday Beer Release**
We are diving into lagerland!

Inspired by a mexican lager we are pouring our Burro de Vapor.

An international pilsner style golden lager with a light body, low bitterness, very little malt flavor and a clean profile.

Perfect for the summer days ahead, with or without a lime!

Thursday Release:
Second in our Currant Situation series.
Currant Situation v 2.0
Black Currant and Pink Guava
tart fruit wheat.
An American style wheat with a beautiful purple hue. This version retains the tart upfront while the guava mellows on the back end.
#currantsituation #harborbeer #WAbeer #independentbeer #steamdonkeybrewing

*Beer Release Friday*
Pick-up Limes Pale Ale
An effervescent pale with citrus flavors of lime and orange pith. This beer has a clean bitterness, with a light mouthfeel.
The use of Motueka hops brings out the lime character both in aroma and flavor, while El Dorado hops gives this one a fruity nose.
#harborbeer #motuekahops

Did you know...
It is National Library Week!!
We have picked a few of our favorite beers and paired them with some awesome reads from Aberdeen Timberland Library.

Check out our Currant Situation #currantsituation while checking out the libraries currant situation, the Lucky Day collection.

Have a pint of the aBEERdeen Scotch and enjoy a take from across the pond!

A mystery/horror selection deserves the dark and stormy Gypsy Head brown porter #gypsyheadbrownporter, and it is perfect for a Steven King novel.

Or sip on a pint of E.A.S. IPA, (which stands for End of Active Service) while reading a collection of military stories straight from those that lived them.

Any way that you pair beer and books is a win!

National Beer Day is celebrated in the US every year on April 7, marking the day that the Cullen-Harrison Act was enacted after having been signed into law by President FDR.
People across the country responded by gathering outside breweries, and on that first day, 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed, inspiring the future holiday.

April 6, the day prior to National Beer Day, is known as New Beer's Eve.
The best way to celebrate this Sunday?? Check out your local breweries!!! #drinklocal
Steam Donkey will be pouring fresh pints from 11-5pm, along with our awesome Beermosas and Red Beers!

What's that.. up in the sky?
Is it a bird? A plane? No...
It's Super Donkey Double IPA!
Our last post for #flagshipfebruary, Super Donk is a relatively new flagship beer for Steam Donkey, but one of our favorites. The perfectly balanced hop-malt ratio makes this double uniquely smooth at 8.7% and super satisfying.
This one is on tap at the brewery in Aberdeen and @frontagerspizza in Seabrook.

It is appropriate that our next #flagshipfebruary post features our Kalaloch Kolsch, as it is back on tap this week at the brewery.
The style, originally brewed in Cologne, Germany, is fermented with ale yeast, but then finished in cold temperatures like a lager. The #kalalochkolsch is a light golden beer, with a crisp clean finish. Perfect for any time you want something simple that still has a lot of integrity.

I think this is a sign we need to make this again!

Celebrating another Wednesday in #flagshipfebruary with our Düzer Belgian Pale.
This one is named after the amazing Doug, who is always working on something either in the brewery, or at a brewfest (his favorite part of the job).
Next time you see him raise a glass of Düzer in his honor!
This belgian beer is a brilliant golden color, with toasty and sweet malty overtones and a clean finish that leaves you wanting more!

6.8% 62 IBU

A northwest style IPA with a trio of citrusy hops. This one has an amazing aroma with a traditional IPA finish, and we are loving it!

With snowpocalypse right around the corner, you deserve the best beer to hunker down and enjoy the weekend with!
Our whiskey barrel aged After Midnight is a smooth and fantastic dark belgian, and just look at that color!

#barrelagedbeer #aftermidnight

It's that time of year when we take time to appreciate the classics. The beers that got us here, and the beers that continue to delight the taste buds. While we love a new release, and can't wait for summer IPAs and fresh hops, we know you can't move forward without understanding where you come from.
The first beer during #flagshipfebruary that we are applauding is our Gypsy Head Brown Porter. The queen of the malt beers. Its been with us since the beginning, and we love it still.
Join us this month, and raise a pint of Gypsy Head and celebrate one of the hits of #SteamDonkeybeers

We love being able to keep it local!
Grab a glass or growler of the good stuff.
On tap now!
