Celebrate Repeal Day!

12647240_10154293106467923_4895970920695363372_nSince 2006, I have been recognizing Repeal Day.  I was inspired by my bar brother in the PNW, Jeffrey Morganthaler.   When I first started, people thought I made it up.  But it caught on over time.  Today, people will be celebrating from DC to Chicago to LA

We will be celebrating tonight at The Humidor Cigar Bar & Lounge in Palm Coast,  beginning at 7:00pm with a ceremonial reading of the 21st Amendment.

The Humidor, located in European 1235349_10152354813937923_271916993_nVillage, is a classic space boasting leather, dark woods, and a fantastic vibe.   Guests are encouraged to dress in the attire of the era (1

A Little Bit About Steelhead Double IPA

Steelhead Double IPA comes to us from Mad River Brewing  in Humboldt County, California.   Malty, hoppy and robust, Double IPA is dry hopped with Amarillo hops for a fresh piney and citrus flavor and aroma. Aggressively hopped, but perfectly balanced.  This is one of those weird IPAs that I (a stout drinker) have great appreciation for.   At 8.6% ABV and 95 IBU, this brew is not for the faint of palate.   The balance is what makes it great, in my opinion.

I featured this beer as part of Craft Beer Week  last year at The Humidor Cigar Bar & Lounge in Palm Coast.

Today (Wednesday) only, I am running this beer on special for $2.50.  That’s PBR price, people.  A perfect opportunity to try something new!

It all started with a stranger walking up to the bar and asking “Aren’t you that TikiTender guy from Myspace?”

My Cigar Lounge Adventure is Two Years Old! Celebrate With Me In Palm Coast!

Out with the old, in with the new! (July 2013)

Hard to believe, but it has been TWO YEARS since I joined Ky Ekinci in a new venture.   With literally no cigar experience, I jumped in  to The Humidor with both feet in mid-July 2013.   After a few days of “undercover boss”, I announced to the world that I was actually the new boss.  It was a scary and invigorating time.   Who I am fooling, it is still a little scary.   Not only am I banking on the success of this venture, but I also have four employees who depend (each in different degrees) on the success of this venture for income.  No pressure or anything.   But, I have a great partner and team helping me along the way.

We will be celebrating for three days in Palm Coast this week!  Won’t you join the party?

We’ve greatly expanded the beer selection since Fall of 2013

On Thursday we will be hosting a cigar & wine social featuring Cordoba & Morales handmade cigars.  Our cigar “socials” have become a vital part of the operation as a means of introducing new cigars to our guests and bringing new guests in for the first time.    Read more here and RSVP!

Friday we will be hosting our annual Black Friday In July event.  Great deals and live music from 5pm-10pm.  Don’t miss it!

We continue the celebration on Saturday with great beers from Anderson Valley Brewing.  Love music from Brad Griese 8-11!

Please make plans to come out for one or all of the events later this week.   I want to thank you personally for supporting me, my partners, and my staff for two years!!

Love,

Tiki

PS Also worth noting is the Humidor’s 10 Year Anniversary coming up October 1.   Click over to Facebook for more info about this milestone.

Boont Amber Ale – This amber ale boasts hints of sun toasted grain, toffee, and fruity esters. Beer Advocate Score: 86 ABV: 5.8% (12 oz can)

Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale – A slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish. Beer Advocate Score: 83 ABV: 5% (12 oz can)

The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose – The Gose style (pronounced “Go-zuh”) was traditionallybrewed using salted water and 50% malted wheat and was spiced with coriander and hops. Beer Advocate Score: 85 ABV: 4.2% (12 oz can)

Hop Ottin IPA – This American IPA is brewed and dry-hopped with copious amounts of Columbus and Cascade. This beer is a showcase of the bright citrusy aromas, bold grapefruit and pine-like flavors, and resiny bitterness that hop heads crave. Beer Advcate Score: 90 ABV: 7% (12 oz can)

Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout – Aged for three months in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and espresso and envelop the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavors with a fine bourbon character. Beer Advocate Score: 85 ABV: 6.9% (22oz bomber)

Pinchy Jeek Barl – Aged for 6 months in Wild Turkey® barrels, this bourbon barrel-aged pumpkin ale is pleasantly creamy with a silky body and sweet caramel flavor. Beer Advocate Score: 82 ABV: 8.5% (22 oz bomber)

Huge Arker – True to its Boontling moniker, “Huge Arker” is a massive force of nature that detonates on your tongue. After primary fermentation, the beer is aged in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels until it fully matures. The deep mahogany color is evocative of the opulence to follow. Dark luscious aromas of burnished oak mingle with candy sugar, bourbon and hearth-baked bread. Beer Advocate Score: 90 ABV: 13.5%

Celebrate Craft Beer Week: Steelhead Double IPA

We are celebrating Craft Beer Week (May 11-May 17) at The Humidor Cigar Bar & Lounge!  Join us as we showcase a different craft beer every day.  On Thursday, we are featuring Steelhead Double IPA from Mad River Brewing Company.

Since 1989, Mad River Brewing Company has been brewing award winning beers.  In the late seventies Brew Master Bob Smith, founder of the HOMEBREWERS Guild, dreamed of opening a small brewery specializing in craft beers. Excursions to buy brewing supplies led Bob to Ken Grossman’s Homebrew Shop in Chico, California.

After Ken shared his plans to build Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in Chico, Bob became determined to build a craft brewery in Humboldt County. In 1989 construction began on what is now known as Mad River Brewing Co.

I have great appreciation for Dylan’s brews and his beard.

Nestled in Humboldt County adjacent to the Mad River in Blue Lake CA, Mad River is now under the command of Brewmaster Dylan Schatz.

Malty, hoppy and robust, Double IPA (8.7% ABV) is dry hopped with Amarillo hops for a fresh piney and citrus flavor and aroma. Aggressively hopped, but perfectly balanced.

We have been serving the Steelhead Double IPA for some time at the Humidor and I am a big fan!  Come enjoy this brew today for half price!

Celebrate Craft Beer Week: Anderson Valley Summer Solstice

We are celebrating Craft Beer Week (May 11-May17) at The Humidor Cigar Bar & Lounge!  Join us as we showcase a different craft beer every day.

For Wednesday, we are celebrating Anderson Valley Brewing Company (Boonville, CA) by featuring Summer Solstice seasonal ale.  Summer Solstice is a slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish.  With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch of spice, it’s become affectionately known as “cream soda for adults”. The unique flavors and superior “drinkability” make for the ultimate refreshment on a hot summer day.

We are great fans of Anderson Valley Brewing Company, currently offering several brews from them.   Bourbon Barrel Stout and Pinchy Jeek Barl (both bombers), Hop Ottin’ IPA, Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout, and the seasonal Summer Solstice.

Anderson Valley Brewing Company is a true “small brewery” both in size and in community participation.

Like many craft breweries, Anderson Valley maintains a strong ecological commitment.    In 2006 the brewery installed a large photo-voltaic array (otherwise known as solar panels), providing 40% of the breweries electrical needs. Anderson Valley Brewing has been a five time WRAP Award Winner in 2005, 2004, 2003, 2001, and 2000. Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP) recognizes California businesses for their outstanding waste reduction efforts.

The brewery’s 100-barrel copper brew house was recycled from two closed breweries in Germany, Ambrose Brutting Braü (Stoffelstein) and Magnus Braü (Kassendorf). Recently the brewery began packaging beers in aluminum cans, a lighter and more compact packaging that requires far less energy transport and less energy to recycle other than glass.

Land management is assisted with the help of some furry friends. Of Anderson Valley’s approximately 28 acres of grass, about 10% is “mowed” using a team of goats. A non-toxic pest control system (a cat named Figaro) guards the brew house and keeps rodents out.

Perhaps the most interesting chapter of Anderson Valley lore is its native language, Boontling. Still spoken by a handful of residents, Boontling is considered by modern linguists to be one of the world’s most extraordinary examples of a homemade language. At its peak Boontling was even taught in the valley’s schools and it was not uncommon for bright lighters (outsiders) to be completely dumbfounded by local conversation.  Anderson Valley Brewing embraces this local history by using Boontling in their marketing.

  • Bahl Hornin’: good drinking
  • Barney Flats: Hendy Woods National Forest. A spectacular forest of virgin redwoods, located in Anderson Valley.
  • Boont: Boonville. The largest community and focal center of Anderson Valley. The town where the language of Boontling originated. Now famous for its local brewery
  • Heelch: A large quantity.
  • Horn: A drink; to drink.
  • Kimmie: A man or father
  • Tidrik: A party; a social gathering. (Probably from “tea drink,” a dialectal expression meaning the same thing.)
  • Yink: boy or son

We hope you will enjoy some Bahl Hornin’ with us today, as we feature Summer Soltice for half price!
