Summer Days at Greeley Avenue

The warm summer days are drifting by. Most days we have a clear brilliant blue sky with an occasional puff of white floating lazily by. Great camping weather, but I heard, and it’s just rumor of course that the camping grounds are pretty much booked through labor day! So what’s someone to do? Go to Greeley Avenue Bar and Grill, grab a beer and watch some sports!

August is Here, Do You Know What That Means?

footballAugust means a lot of things, but there’s one really awesome thing that August brings and that’s football!! I realize that it’s only the NFL preseason games, but if you’re a fan, you’re a fan and any football will work. So not only does the NFL start their first preseason game August 7th, but our Ducks and Beavers play their first games at the end of the month. The excitement is about to begin!

In the spirit of football, here are some interesting NFL facts for you in case Roy Smallwood asks questions during Quizzy Trivia on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m.

  • 78% of NFL players are bankrupt just two years after finishing their careers! There’s a group of “Science Cheerleaders,” former NFL and NBA Cheerleaders who go around getting people interested in science!The longest field goal in NFL history was kicked by a man who had only half a foot!
  • NFL cheerleaders only make $50 a game!
  • During a typical NFL game, the ball is only in play for 11 minutes!
  • When former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner dines out with his family, he always anonymously picks up the bill for one other table.
  • Deion  Sanders is the only person to hit an MLB home run and NFL touchdown in the same week. He’s also the only person to play in the World Series and the Super Bowl.
  • The American Sports industry is worth $422 billion and employs 1% of the population!
  • The Baltimore Ravens are named after Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven.”
  • For over a decade, players that were featured on the cover of the Madden NFL video games were ‘cursed’ with a serious injury or a dramatic reduction in performance during the following season.
  • The ‘G’ on the Green Bay Packers helmet does not stand for ‘Green Bay’.
  • The huddle formation used in football came from deaf football players.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!

Greeley Grindhouse Presents…

Planet of DinosaursWoohooo! It’s Greeley Grindhouse time at Greeley Avenue Bar and Grill this Thursday, July 24th, at 7:20 p.m. Join us for “Planet of Dinosaurs” made in 1977.

After mechanical issues on the spaceship Odyssey, Captain Lee Norsythe (Louie Lawless) is forced to crash land on a planet with atmosphere and conditions very similar to Earth. As the ship sinks into the lake, communications officer Cindy (Mary Appleseth) realizes that she forgot the radio in the ship and attempts to retrieve it, with the assistance of fellow crew-member Chuck (Chuck Pennington). During the search, Cindy is attacked and killed by an unidentified creature. Chuck decides continuing the search for the radio isn’t the best idea and leaves it behind.

Realizing that they are stranded, the remaining eight people decide to explore the planet. After exploring for a while they run into a Brontosaurus, and it dawns on them that the planet is following a similar evolutionary track as Earth, but is millions of years behind.

Their luck doesn’t improve as Charlotte (Charlotte Speer) realizes that the plant life, especially the berries, are poisonous, and Lee witnesses a fight between a Stegosaurus and a large Tyrannosaurus.  Lee decides that the best option is to climb the mountains and reach higher ground where he thinks the creatures will be unable to reach them.

During the climb, Nyla (Pamela Bottaro) slips and loses the entire supply of food rations. In a cave higher up the mountain, Vice-President of Spaceways Incorporated Harvey Baylor (Harvey Shain) discovers a nest full of eggs. After stealing an egg, Harvey is attacked and killed by a Centrosaurus. Soon after, much to ship engineer Jim’s (James Whitworth) dismay, Lee decides to halt the expedition and settle at what he considers an area where they can defend themselves and the idea of never being rescued is now beginning to settle in. After several more encounters, including a giant spider, Struthiomimus and an Allosaurus, the large Tyrannosaurus arrives and kills Derna, demolishing the stockade in the process.

So what happens next with this crew who is dwindling away? Will they be rescued or are they forever left to fend themselves against dangerous dinosaurs? Will they stick together as a team or turn on each other as well?

Find out this Thursday night, July 24th, at 7:20 p.m.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!

Did You Know?

It’ Wednesday, which means it’s Hump day and we are that much closer to the weekend. BUT, it also means that Roy Smallwood is hosting Quizzy Trivia tonight! The fun beings at 6:30 p.m so team up and kick some butt with your awesome trivia knowledge.

For those of you that need a bit of assistance in the trivia department, here’s some great beer and alcohol trivia for you.

Bourbon-Barrels

  • The Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock because of beer. They had planned to sail further south to a warm climate, but had run out of beer on the journey
  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) was elected in 1932 because of his promise to end Prohibition.
  • In Japan, beer is sold in vending machines, by street vendors and in the train stations.
  • Bourbon is the official alcohol of the United States, by an act of Congress.  Many people have attempted to have that overturned in favor of beer instead throughout the years.
  • American beer is predominately made from rice. That is why it tastes so light compared to foreign beers. This is an American invention to increase profits as they hoped a lighter beer would also draw women to purchase.
  • If you collect beer bottles you are a labeorphilist.
  • The ‘33’ on a bottle of Rolling Rock was originally a printer’s error.  It refers to the 33 words in the original slogan.  It has generated enough mystery over the years that the company left it in the label.
  • The oldest known code of laws is the Code of Hammurabi from ancient Babylonia, about 1750 B.C. It regulated the practices of drinking houses, and called for the death penalty for proprietors found guilty of watering down their beer.
  • In Babylon over 4000 years ago, it was customary for the bride’s father to supply his new son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. As mead is a honey beer and their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the ‘honey month’ – or what we know today as the ‘honeymoon’. In fact, Babylonians believed if the groom drank mead for an entire month, it enhanced the chances of his wife bearing a male heir.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!

What’s Rotating at Greeley?

tapOne of the many great qualities Greeley has is the ever rotating beer selection. And as most of you already know (but we do have a lot of new subscribers) when the last drop is drained….it’s gone. That means if the following are your faves, you need to hurry on in! And, if you like and follow Greeley on Facebook and Twitter you’ll be the first to know what’s on tap and the shelf!

Here’s what’s on rotating tap:

  • Bridgeport Trilogy Dry Hopped Pale Ale
  • Beer Valley Owyhee Amber Ale
  • Hub-Rise Up Red
  • Breakside Brewing Pilsner

You’ll enjoy the Bridgeport Trilogy Dry Hopped Pale Ale. It uses a big charge of Crystal Hops at the end of fermentation for a pleasant dry-hop aroma and flavor. The presence of Rye malt gives this beer a slightly spicy malt character and the Munich malts add a soft yet definite mouthfeel. It offers an ABV of 5.1% and IBUs of 40.

Hub-Rise Up Red is a full-bodied Northwest Red Ale. It’s referred to as mahogany smooth and hopped to the rafters with locally grown Cascade and Centennial hops. It offers and ABV of 5.8% and IBU of 60.

Come join us every Sunday and Tuesday evening for Texas Hold ’em. It starts at 7 p.m. both nights. On Wednesday evening at 6:30 Roy Smallwood hosts Quizzy trivia so get your game on.

Here’s a few fun beer facts for you.

  • The word beer comes from the Latin word ‘bibere’ meaning ‘to drink’.
  • The invention of bread and beer has been argued to be responsible for humanity’s ability to develop technology and build civilization.
  • The earliest known chemical evidence of beer dates to circa 3500–3100 BC from the site of Godin Tepe in the Zagros Mountains of western Iran.
  • Monks brewing beer in the Middle Ages were allowed to drink five quarts of beer a day. In ancient times, monks who fasted or abstained from solid food subsisted on beer.
  • The oldest known written recipe is for beer.
