I think we'll be getting there a little later on, like 9ish. But maybe it's good if I'm not there early, it will keep me out of trouble. I *do* have to work the next day :p

Excited to see opening's just around the corner (and the pub's right around the corner from my apartment!).

And that, sir, is one hell of a tap list for opening night. Can't wait!

Awesome beer lineup. Wow.

Don you have no idea how stoked I am to visit Naked City on Wednesday. Shall I just direct my paycheck to you, or would you prefer cash? :)

Congrats man, you are living the dream. I wish you nothing but the best.

I brewed 11 barrels of Naked City Dubbel yesterday at Lazy Boy Brewing. Look for that to be on tap in the next month or so! :rockin:

Looking forward to Wednesday! :mug:

It goes without saying that we all wish great success for you, and appreciate you allowing us to live the dream vicariously through you.

I just read through most of the original post, Congrats, it looks like you have a recipe for success. Seeing the pics reminds me of a lot of the great brew pubs that I miss from living in Portland. I am on the east side of the state but I will have to make a trip over some time to support the cause.





Shameless plug/advertisement:

Just in case you haven't purchased a POS system yet for tendering those great brews, I would suggest Micros Systems Inc. They are not the cheapest, but they are for sure the best!

I'm just booked a business trip to Seattle for the first week in December. No grand opening but I am stoked to be able to spend some money at the Naked City Taphouse!

Good God, man. I wish I could get up there. Now that's a backup team from heaven. I would be happy sitting in the cooler with the backups and forget who I am:tank:

Good luck!

Hoprod on backup???? NOOOOOOO...
oh well, will be my incentive to come back as often as possible, so that I can be there
when it goes on tap... that is my major "go to" beer lately, but have never had the chance to have it on tap... I can't wait.

The missus and I will be there on Opening Night. Really looking forward to this - I'm more of a reader/lurker than a poster, but I've been watching the construction thread since it began. I was jazzed to see the article in NW Brewing News recently. Made me feel like a smug insider - "Oh, you're just now discovering this? How cute." :)

Will round up some friends if possible, though it doesn't look like you'll be short on customers. For any other HBT visitors, I'll be the short stumpy guy in the kilt trying his damndest to drink his way down the tap line.

Holy crap! I've never even heard of most of those selections! Makes me all the more jealous of you PNWers who can make it out there this Wednesday. If I weren't 2000 miles away, I'd be there for sure!

Congrats and good luck on Wednesday!:mug:

Tricerahops!!!!!? What the hell is that thing?! I want it now! :mug:
'tis a brewery in Eugene, OR. Hopheads does not even begin to describe these guys. Tricerahops is really, really, good. They have one called Total Domination that is waaay over the top.

Not a chance Dude, I'm taking the job as Naked City Cleaning Biatch when I retire. :D

Seriously though, keep me in the loop when you come in February, I'll schedule another visit for then.

The lineup is amazing! Don't think I'll be able to have more than a couple on a work night but rest assured -- I'll be a regular!

Can't wait till Wednesday and once again, congrats! :)

Just wanted send my congrats to you BT. I have been a long time lurker here at HBT and stumbled upon an article in the Seattle PI today about your grand-opening. I am going to try to round up some friends and be there tomorrow after work.

Prost!

Have fun tonight, folks - I'll be at the Cub Scout meeting thinking fond thoughts of you all having good times and good beers.

Don't mind me. I'll be fine. You all run along and have fun now...

Tonight's the night! :ban:

Thanks for all the well wishes and I look forward to meeting those HBT'ers that I haven't yet met and seeing those that I have. :mug:

I may be running around here like a crazy person if we're as busy as I expect to be, but be sure and track me down to say hello.


See you all tonight.
