WARNING! LONG-WINDED BUT VALUE-LADEN POST AHEAD!

At the height of activity of JaxBrewBitch, I distributed a weekly newsletter to my awesome followers called the Hypnotic Hop. Contained within each issue, I would sponsor weekly raffles of beer swag, tickets to craft beer events, beer dinners or even a free pint with me at a mutually agreed upon craft beer-centric establishment.

Once I opened Silver Cow, time demands dictated a focus on the business and the number and duration of my JaxBrewBitch Prowls were diminished. However, I wanted to share what we were doing at Silver Cow with all who were interested.

Although, Silver Cow has a significant number of events, new taps and packaged beers each week, I hear (sadly) from so many of you that you do not see this good news on facebook as often as you did previously. As you know, the facebook promotion process has been altered to stress “pay to play”, so to speak.

So, how to remedy this dilemma? EASY! Sign up for our Newsletter which will be going out later today!

We won’t give out your email addy and that’s all you have to enter at: http://silvercowjax.com/?cat=34

In our Newsletter, you will find ways to win complimentary pints of awesome craft beer, glasses of fine wine, deep-discounts on certain packaged beer, appetizers and more!

Help us get the word out about the Newsletter today!

As always, we sincerely appreciate your continuing patronage and support of what we are doing at Silver Cow!

Just tapped: Paratrooper Porter – Veterans United Craft Brewery 5.6% ABVparatrooper-porter-illustration-rgb-trans-gif_1

Brewer’s Notes:

A wonderful malty concoction which pours dark brown/black and is topped with a creamy tan head. Chocolate flavors are prominent with background notes of coffee and a hint of caramel and raisin. Malty sweetness is balanced by a moderate bitterness from the dark roasted grains. English hops contribute a unique flavor to an otherwise “All American” brew. Airborne – All The Way!

New arrivals: Ten FIDY Russian Imperial Stout – Oskar Blues Grill & Brew 10.50% ABV 12 oz Canimages-2

Brewer’s Notes:

This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. It is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops.

Art Opening featuring Gourub Saha – Dec 1

Posted on

art-open-gourub

We at Silver Cow are excited to announce the next Art Exposition Opening of an amazingly talented artist this Thurs (Dec 1) at 7 pm.

Gourub Saha is the next artist whose incredible talent will be on display at Silver Cow!

Artist’s Statement:

“I am a self-taught artist, primarily interested in figure drawing and portraiture.  I work in a range of media, and continually push myself to try new techniques. I am a member of Art League of Jacksonville, and I draw daily.

I believe we all can turn a piece of paper or wood or metal into a beautiful art.   Creativity draws our attention to all that is beautiful, even though we are surrounded by so much troubles. Art brings forth a sense of peace in me, and my liberal use of color can transform any subject matter.”
