Freedom to Worship

Please permit me a moment of blasphemy, but I wear my Eli Cannon's "beer gods" gear with pride.  We have many good restaurants in the Mid, and I enjoy eating at some with great pleasure, but my favorite spot on Main is Eli's.  The grub is decent.  The atmosphere is appealing (except when they blast the early century rock as the clock ticks toward eleven).  The staff is terrific.  It's walking distance from my house.  The beer selection is amazing.  And there's no place I'd rather be sitting on a summer's eve then in an Adirondack chair on Eli's back deck.

Next week the beer selection will be even more amazing than usual.

To my surprise it's the second annual Beer Gods week at Eli's.  How did I miss the first?

Here, pun intended, from Eli's Facebook page, is what's on tap.

Tuesday Night - "Out with the Old and In with the NEW" promo featuring New England Brewery. We will be featuring Atlantic Amber (OLD) and Alpha-Weizen (NEW) along with Elm City Lager, Sea Hag IPA, 668 Neighbor of the Beast (NEW) and a very special limited Ghandi-Bot CASK conditioned firkin! Get here early - Matt and Rob will be here to mingle!

Wednesday Night - "Are You Firkin Kiddin Me?! Night" featuring four different cask conditioned ales. Blue Point Oatmeal Stout, Blue Point Hoptical Illusion, Shipyard xxxx IPA, and whatever is left from New England's Ghandi-Bot.

Thursday - First up from 1-4pm Saranac will be holding open interviews for those interested in part time work as a new promo rep. Details will be posted on our wall.
Starting at 5pm - we are hosting Live Mural Art with Matt and Adam - come check them out while they create a new masterpiece on our fence out back.
Starting at 7pm - 3 Olives brand vodka will be holding a promo to announce our very own winner for this year's bartender challenge. Since the entire bar staff will be here promoting their own creations - we are welcoming back 3 "retro" guest bartenders - Brandon, JD, and Leslie!

Hope to see everyone at some point this week to celebrate the beer gods everywhere!
