Hello Friends-Happy Spring in February. It’s opening day at the Pump, and the first Ferry ride, so we know 2017 is ON!!
Hope this finds all of our island friends and readers happy and healthy. Jay is doing great during his 90th year, and amazes us each day with his dedication to the human story, to deeply realizing our reality and to finding the humor in absolutely everything including the politic of our current nation. He has a pure perception (he does not watch any television to this day) and his intelligence and strength and balance has taught those around him so much in the past 6 months. We hope you make plans to come visit him in the Spring. He looks forward to getting back to the island.
Doug has been busy on the new Dockhand Porter formulation and labeling process with Tim Adkins. It is sure to be a great addition to the brown beer spectrum that is evolving at the KiBrewery. He has a few surprises up his sleeve, so be sure to put the Blessing of the Brewery on your calendar. April 29; 1-4 PM
Details are on the new website. www.kelleysislandbrewery.com
This season, we are adding a daily tour/tasting at 2 PM at the outside bar. We will give a short history of the property, a tour of the brewing process and a look inside (not through) the brewery. It will be offered with the information about how we make and manage a batch of beer in our unique location. It will be followed by a tasting of beer and discounts on certain merchandise and snacks.
If you are having company this summer and want to reserve a day with a short tour and tasting and some lawn relaxation, please give us an e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can make your party really personal and special.
We will still be offering our Island Wide Scavenger Hunt. From the downtown walking tour to the island wide highlighted map, this is a way that renters and locals can offer their guests an independent activity that is historical and ecologically significant.
Opening weekend this year will be April 21-22-23. The weekend before we may have breakfast on April 15-16 from 9-12, with coffees, drinks and carry out open at 8:30 AM. Please stay tuned as this will depend on our opening. We arrive on the island on the 10th.
Opening weekend (Earth Day) will be our 2nd Annual Bio Blitz. Check out our Facebook page for details and registration. Looking forward to our science teacher friend Ellen, and Dr Kreiger, a local water expert, walk us through the testing and descriptions of the basic findings in the local lake water for our 2017 season beginning. With Earth Day activities and science for everyone, we hope to see you for some great blitzing. And some great brews and breakfasts.
Following that we will be participating in Derby Day and Ohio Craft Beer Week. Stay tuned.
We look forward to seeing you soon. The spring is always fun to see old and new businesses and families open up their hearts to the island love. Looks like we have a wonderful new addition to both in the Finger household and Flea. The world needs a lot more art, and we are so excited it will be right down the street. Well I’m getting homesick just writing this. Cheers. Hay Danny..we are having LINKS this year!!!!! Regular and Turkey…..
Have some openings at the cottage this summer. If you have ever dreamed of staying there for a weekend and having an old fashioned experience, the best time to book is NOW. Cheers. Doug and Patti.k
