Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.

As big fans of music here at Longtable, especially played on vinyl. we will be celebrating this special day, by giving away a pretty sweet Crosley turntable provided by the people at Dogfish Head. Enter by visiting Longtable on Saturday, the 21st, and filling out an entry form. We are also upping the ante by partnering with Dogfish Head to bring you some truly inventive beer to help celebrate music in analogue form. Here are the beers we will be pouring:
Dragons & Yum Yums
The official Record Store Day beer, brewed in collaboration with The Flaming Lips, is a tropical pale ale with yumberry, passion fruit, dragonfruit, pear juice, and black carrot juice. Because what the heck else would it be?
120 Minute IPA
Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45°P, boiled for a full 2 hours while being continually hopped with high alpha American hops, dry-hopped every day in the fermenter for a month, and aged for a month on whole leaf hops, 120 Minute IPA is by far the strongest IPA ever brewed at 16.5% abv
60 Minute IPA
A session India Pale Ale brewed with Warrior, Amarillo & ’Mystery Hop X.’ A powerful East Coast I.P.A. with a lot of citrusy hop character. THE session beer for beer geeks like us!
Session sour quencher made with lime peel, black lime and sea salt. It’s a citrusy-tart union of three German styles of beer blissfully brewed into one.
We will be spinning some vinyl all day also to celebrate on our bar top turntable. Feel free to bring in a record to share with the patrons if you would like! Hope to see you then!
