A congrats to Black Forest's R&R Coffee Café, which will be celebrating its two-year anniversary tomorrow and Saturday.

Drop by for anniversary specials like $2 mochas, $1 lattes and $2 cinnamon rolls and call 494-8300 for more on contests, music and other offerings during the celebration.

Also — a heads up on the next couple beer releases at Trinity Brewing Company: Tomorrow will see the unveiling of the Farmhouse: Beach House. In Trinity's words:

A Saison inspired by spring break and all its liberty. Brewed with ripe bananas and cocoa nibbs, this malt driven dry and toasty Belgian Ale is reminiscent of a Dunkel Weiss, but our crazy brewers made it blond!

Then, at a St. Patrick's Day party on next Wednesday, March 17, look for the unveiling of the Wee Banshee Irish Heather Ale. Here's the data on it from the guys:

Using ingredients directly from the isle we brewed up a historically authentic ancient beer.

It's toasty from the addition of both Victory and Vienna malts, with a lightly sweet caramel note. European noble hops add a dryness and drinkability to the ale while balancing and supporting the complex malt undertones. Separating this ale from all Irish reds, Heather Tips bring us back to ancient and medieval brewing times, adding a very pleasant and soft floral echo. Bringing a little bit more of the isle to this ale we add a very small amount of sea salt t0 the boil. 7.0% ABV.
