There are a lot of boxes you need to check if you’re going to be in a rock and roll band. You know, obvious things like having a great rhythm section, or owning a lot of denim. Maybe less obvious, but equally important, is to have some good friends who own a brewery. In 2017, after years of dehydration and who knows how many cases of Budweiser and Coors Light, we finally got to check off that box as Humble Sea Brewing Company opened their doors to their tap room on the West Side of Santa Cruz. We’ve been pretty vocal about our support for Humble Sea for a while now so we’re very excited to be playing their 1 Year Anniversary Party on Saturday March 17th.
We’re very excited for the Humble Sea team and their success this past year and we’ve had a lot of fun being a part, although small, of their journey. We played their first mini festival last June; in 2016 Humble Sea sold their beer to the public for the first time during our two night run at Don Quixote’s, and a year later they did a full on tap takeover at DQ’s where they served the Mountain Man Pale Ale, and the IPAin’t Leavin, which in my opinion are still some of the most most melodic beers they’ve ever made. But even beyond that, we’ve been lucky enough to be involved in Humble Sea for years. In 2014 we got to try some of the first incarnations of Humble Sea at owner and head brewer, Nick Pavlina’s Wedding; and a decade before that at San Lorenzo Valley High School and Junior High I don’t remember a day going by where owners Taylor and Frank weren’t talking about their dream of one day of serving hazy New England style IPA’s at their very own brewery. Alright, that last part isn’t totally true, we were mostly talking about basketball, but the point is these guys have been working their asses off and we’re really excited for all our friends at Humble Sea and are really looking forward to celebrating their first year open. Jamie took it upon himself to write a song for Humble Sea and we recently performed it in their barrel room, which is where we’ll be performing Saturday March 17th at 5:30pm. Have a listen and see ya Saturday.
When your friends are so good they write a song about your brewery on a whim. The Coffis Brothers and their band of mountainous men will be playing at our 1 Year Anniversary Parking Lot Party! this Saturday, March 17, from 5:30-7:30 on the barrel room.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Tickets are free and all are welcome.Party starts at 11am and goes until 10pm!
