FRIENDS OF BLUE DRESS PARK PORTER
Blue Dress Park is an 18th-century yeoman conveniently located in a 12 oz. Pour. Of.
Blue Dress Cup is a “brand name” ice barn located under the Park. For ice
Friends of Blue Dress Shape is so mild it's nearly not a Porter but we suggest it is.
A lot is a lot.
Blue Dress Riverwest 24 Hour Bike Ride checkpoint is so much like an empty concrete parking lot you might not recognize it as a lot and you can't park there. Awesome.
How we get the burdock in there I'm not totally sure. Tea or tincture. We'll have to experiment. Technically that makes it not a beer. Everything is a beer! Sake is beer. BEER IS BEER, FOR BEER'S SAKE.
As well the hop profile is based on those found between garages in late summer strolls down alleyways behind Booth St. can be noticed after the sun bleached asphalt freshness of this Porter are experimented
POOR FARM PILSNER
Does the Poor Farm have some connection to Hamburg?
PF- Yes. Poor Farm's city cousin, our 15 year old exhibition space in Oak Park, IL, The Suburban, was invited to particpate in a festival for "off spaces" called Subvision in a port section of Hamburg, Hafen City. It was literally on a man-made island in the middle of the Elbe River, an area experiencing dramatic new development at the time but still riddled with WWII shrapnel because the city was the Northern industrial hub in the War.
A nice coincidence: Danish artist Henrik Plenge Jakobsen exhibited with The Suburban at Subvision in Hamburg and now he is also premiering a new exhibition at Poor Farm this coming August. While in Hamburg we enjoyed a few Friesland style beers, Jeveramong them. It was that type of northern Germany pilsner that inspired Poor Farm Pils.
A clean German style Pilsner like this can be held as a modern standard in which other beers are tasted in relation to. Is there a standard like that in art spaces, both European and American?
PF - One could, if feeling boastful, suggest that The Suburban, the Poor Farm and now the Poor Farm Pils are setting the bar where it needs to be.
Where does Poor Farm get it's brats from? What about buns?
PF - We've tried a variety of brats over the years and so far the best came from Niemuth's in Waupaca. They will make them to-order for us. The buns are tricky. We get decent ones from the bakery at Pick and Save but we're still searching for the elusive perfect bratwurst bun.
THE GREEN GALLERY PALE ALE
When The Green Gallery hosted its first shows in a Riverwest apartment in spring of 2004 a pale India style ale with Kent Goldingshops and candied ginger was brewed in the kitched and offered to visitors. The exhibitions continued but the beer was quickly exhauseted. This is more of that beer, ten years later, more or less.
