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!

All of us at Silver Cow wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!  On that day, Silver Cow will be diy-thanksgiving-beer-bottle-centerpiece-watermarkclosed so that we can spend some time giving thanks for your support and patronage this year.  We might also have a bite or two of turkey ourselves.

It is because of you that Silver Cow exists and we appreciate each and every one of you who have dropped by to say hello, have some food, beer or a glass of wine.

We hope you and your families have a safe, enjoyable – and blessed – holiday weekend!

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.

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.”

Operation Turkey Sandwich – Nov 23

Posted on

With Thanksgiving approaching, the awesome folks of Beer & Hymns have decided to do somethingoperation-turkey-2 a little special for those that get stuck working on the holiday – away from their family. Join us for a special Beer & Hymns event – Operation Turkey Sandwich – at Silver Cow on Wednesday (Nov 23), 7:30 pm – “Thanksgiving Eve” – to assemble bag lunches complete with turkey sandwiches, pumpkin bars and a few other portable versions of Thanksgiving classics!

Silver Cow is honored to be part of this! We will be tapping a couple of barrel-aged beers for the event and we’ll be offering drink specials throughout the evening.

Then, make the holiday even more rewarding for you by joining us all on Thanksgiving morning as we go all over town handing these bag lunches out to anyone who we find working. (7-11 clerks, bartenders, cops, bus drivers, strippers, Walmart employees, etc.)

There are many ways to help and we need lots of it! You can help by baking items to put into the bags, assembling the lunches, driving around to help hand them out or by donating money. You can also help by sharing this event with anyone else you think would be interested in helping make this happen!

Just tapped: Avatar Jasmine IPA – Elysian Brewing Company 6.3% ABVavatar_jasmine_ipa

Brewer’s Notes:

An IPA with a very floral aroma and flavor that is elegantly balanced, allowing subtle flavor of Jasmine to prevail while still delivering the IPA’s essential hoppiness. Pour golden copper with a lively head.

Anybody want a peanut? This hunk a’ burnin’ chocolate love sure does. Butta’ Cup takes two star-crossed flavors – sweet chocolate and salty peanuts – and joins them with a delectable double brown ale for a moment of pure destiny. Just one sip is sure to get your heart — and mouth — racing.
