It seems crazy to think that it’s only been a year since Conquest became Columbia’s first production brewery, but what a year it’s been. To celebrate, Conquest is throwing itself one heck of a party this Saturday. The brewery and tap room will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and there will be tons of food trucks including the BBQ Bus, Wurst Wagen, Pawley’s Front Porch, Bone-In Artisan Barbecue, and more. To really make things special, Conquest will also be releasing The Finisher! The Finisher is a massive-to-the-point-of-ridiculousness 17.5 percent ABV Imperial stout brewed with brown sugar and honey. It can only be sold in 22-ounce bottles due to state law, and yes, the bottles will feature that “Angry Jesus” painting that hangs behind the Conquest tap room bar and is sure to catch your eye (and hold it in a fierce and unyielding gaze). Conquest will also be debuting a somewhat milder at 10.5 percent ABV Imperial stout called Brutus, and maybe one more other new concoction. It’s going to be quite the party, and these guys definitely deserve it. Cheers, Conquest!
Honor A Fallen Bartender
Buddy Parker, former Ruth’s Chris bartender and founding member of the Columbia chapter of the U.S. Bartenders’ Guild, tragically died in a car accident in November. The USBG will honor their friend with a Buddy Parker Memorial event this Monday, Jan. 27 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at @116 Espresso and Wine Bar. Parker’s bartending friends, including fellow USBG founders Andy Haddock (of Terra) and Josh Streetman (of Motor Supply Co.), will take turns manning the bar and shaking up different Buddy-themed cocktails; at the end of the night, they’ll all get back there to collaborate on some drinks as well. There will be food and door prizes donated by local restaurants, and all the alcohol has been donated by Ben Arnold Co. The event is a fantastic deal, too, with all food and drink (open bar!) covered by only a $25 donation. The donations plus all bartenders’ tips for the night will go to a fund for Parker’s six-year-old son, so it’s a great deal for a great cause as well. It should be a special night of cocktails and collaborations coming together in a very fitting tribute to one of Columbia’s own.
