Bitter Like Us: 2008 Lupulin Land Harvest Hopcoming begins this Friday, October 17.

With Fringe Fest put to rest until 2009, I've finally had the time to organize our seventh annual Lupulin Land Harvest Hopcoming, which rolls out of the gate on Friday, Oct. 17.

As always, the idea is to tap roughly 11 of the kegs at once, then bring on another wave of hop-laden wonders when the first is drained. Prices and pour sizes vary. The opening lineup will be revealed as soon as I decide what it's going to be (i.e., we await a delivery or two).

The basics follow.

The Beers
Here's the place to see what's in store: Updated Lupulin Land Harvest Hopcoming beer list.

Hand Pull
The Clipper City Hop 3 firkin will lead off on Friday, to be followed when depleted by BBC's Dank IPA at some point next week.

Randall the Enamel Animal will be crawling out from his lair to modify a beer, but to be truthful, we haven't decided when this appearance can be expected.

Schlafly Promo
On Monday night, October 20, Scott Shreffler, Nick Vickery, and Kent Householder from Schlafly in St. Louis, MO, will be hosting a Schlafly Promo Night in Prost from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. There will be a drawing every 30 minutes for a bucket of Schlafly merchandise (t-shirt, hat, glassware, keychain, etc.) Schlafly Hop Harvest and India Brown will be on tap. The drawings begin just after 6:00 p.m.
