Sandkerwa opening weekend lineup is here.

Here are the first weekend's starters for Sandkerwa NA 3, which begins on Thursday, September 24, at NABC's Public House & Pizzeria (3312 Plaza Drive).

To learn more about what we're trying to achieve with Sandkerwa, go here.

In celebrating Sandkerwa, we're celebrating small Franconian breweries whenever possible, and this year, this task was made easier by the Shelton Brother importing company's decision to import a special container filled with rare Franconian lagers in 20-liter, "Anstich" kegs. These are gravity-feed kegs with no CO2 used to push the beer. We'll set them on the counter behind the bar, punch a hole in the top, and use the rubber mallet to insert a tap.

Once tapped, the 40 half-liter glasses of beer therein must be consumed forthwith, or the remainder will go flat. Because of this, we'll be selling these special beers at a special price: $5.00 per half liter.

Weekend Anstich schedule:

One to be tapped on Thursday, September 24:
Mahr's Brau Ungespundet Lager ... Mahrs Bräu, Bamberg

Two to be tapped on Friday, September 25:
Fischer Rauchbier ... Brauerei Fischer, Greuth
Zum Grunen Baum Landbier ... Brauerei-Gasthof Zum Grunen Baum (Bayer), Rauhenebrach-Theinheim

One to be tapped on Saturday, September 26:
Lindenbräu Vollbier ... Lindenbräu, Gräfenberg

The following weekend (October 1, 2 & 3), there'll be four more drawn from the remaining stock.

Five (or six) standard kegs poured conventionally with CO2

Göller Pils
Brauerei Goller, Zeil am Main

Kulmbacher Reichelbrau Eisbock
Kulmbacher Kapuziner Weisse
Kulmbacher Monchshof Kellerbrau
Kulmbacher Monchshof Schwarzbier
All from Kulmbacher Brauerei, Kulmbach

Schlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen (if a keg arrives in time)
Brauerei Heller-Trum, Bamberg

As the CO2 kegs go, there'll be replaced with the remaining Sandkerwa beers.
