Free State’s dock sale & other weekend possibilities

It’s beer in Lawrence and brunch in Westport this weekend.

Forget hats and gloves. If you want to get warm this winter, go with the Free State Brewing Company’s Owd Mac. The Lawrence brewery is having a dock sale at the production facility (1923 Moodie Road) of the barrel-aged Imperial Stout (which spent a year aging in Templeton Rye barrels). The sale starts at 11 a.m. and goes until 2 p.m. Brewers will be on hand, so you can buy a pint and chat about the beers they make. The 750 ml bottles are $15 per person and they only made 60 cases, so you likely want to get their sooner rather than later.

Julep Cocktail Club (4141 Pennsylvania Avenue, #104) will offer brunch for the first time this Sunday with a menu designed by chef Debbie Gold. Julep’s nod to the South continues with its brunch menu:  biscuits and gravy and grits join the standard cast of French toast and egg sandwiches. Brunch is from 12 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Take a moment to hug some ice cream this weekend. Murray’s Ice Cream & Cookies (4120 Pennsylvania) is slated to close for the season on Sunday. They’ll have regular hours from 12 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday and then the sale Sunday starts at 12 p.m. The Pitch’s Charles Ferruzza noted earlier this week that the clearance sale (it’s all to-go and it’s all half-price) has wrapped up in 45 minutes in years past. It’s cash only, so hit the ATM first.

There’s a new Friday tradition starting in the East Bottoms tonight. Urban Provisions (2616 Guinotte Avenue) is hosting a third Friday pop up shop tonight from 5 to 9 p.m. You can get beer bread mix from I Loaf You and sample brews from the Crane Brewing Company. The Local Pig’s Adam Northcraft (husband of UP co-owner Savannah Northcraft) will be making Vietnamese street food.

Can’t wait until our book, Cookies & Beer, is out on store shelves next fall? Neither can we. In To help tide you over, Bier Station (120 East Gregory) is hosting Kami’s cookies and beer party from 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday. See what you think of chocolate-caramel cream cookies and Founders Porter and snickerdoodles with Deschutes Jubleale. There will also be root beer and cookies and dog cookies for your two and four-legged children.
