Foothills Sexual Chocolate Release Feb. 1

foothills brewing, sexual chocolateAnother round of Foothills Sexual Chocolate is almost here – mark your calendars for Saturday, February 1st at 8am.

Since many people are accustomed to standing in line all night for this one, the brewery is leveraging this opportunity to raise some money for local charities. The first 4 spots in line (along with some other swag) will be auctioned off via eBay every Monday for the next 4 weeks starting on Monday, January 6. Subscribe to the brewery’s newsletter for first crack at these.

Winners receive:

  • Guaranteed spot in line when bottle sales start
  • Set of glassware, including a Limited Edition Sexual Chocolate goblet
  • $50 Foothills gift card
  • Foothills gear prize pack, including Sexual Chocolate t-shirt
  • Special beer gift

The details:

  • Foothills will host its traditional bottle share pre-release party on Friday night January 31st beginning at 7pm, in the brewery portion of the brewpub. Price of admission is a bottle or two (or three or four) from your craft beer collection. Appetizers will be provided.
  • The line to buy 22-oz. bottles will start on the sidewalk outside the pub. You’re welcome to show up anytime after we close at 2am the previous evening. Or just bid on a spot in line (see above).
  • City police officers will be on hand overnight. Since we all know what a well-behaved crowd craft beer enthusiasts are, they’ll probably get really bored. See that they do.
  • The nice officers will reportedly allow enjoyment of your own “refreshments” until daylight. Decorum is strongly encouraged. No kegstands, in other words.
  • There will be portable restroom facilities in the back parking lot. You’re welcome.
  • Around 7:00am, a cheerful (albeit groggy) member of Foothills’ staff will distribute numbered wristbands that denote your place in line.
  • The pub will open at 8am. Sexual Chocolate will be tapped and waiting. We’ll also have breakfast available for purchase. Life is good.
  • Bottle sales will commence at 10am. You’ll be summoned by your wristband number in groups of 50. Bottle prices and limits will be set closer to release, and will be based on overall yield of this year’s brew.
  • No growler fills of Sexual Chocolate. And no growling about no growler fills.

Foothills Brewing Company is located at 638 W 4th St in Winston-Salem. Follow them on Twitter @FoothillsBeer for more details.
