The Old Mine 4yr Anniversary Celebration!

Thank you for the love, support, and loyalty you’ve shown The Old Mine over the last four years! It was so fun to celebrate with you. What’s left of the anniversary lineup of amazing beers, ciders, and whiskey are staying on tap and available. Cheers to you Old Miners and we can’t thank you enough!

And just like every year, we’ll take the best of the cool glassware available and make a limited run of Anniversary glasses. This year, we thought outside the brew — it’s slow-sipping time with The Old Mine whiskey glasses! Only 144 will be available for purchase

Cherry Bourbon Hard Cider

Apples and Bourbon and Cherries, oh my! Cherry Bourbon Hard Cider is now on draft and available at The Old Mine for big pours and growler fills! Yes, the Handlebar you know and love took a swan dive into Kentucky Straight Bourbon Oak and Sweet Red Cherries. Come get some!

We’ve put a delicious daily salad on our menu! We’ve also resolved to make this winter even tastier, so we’ve added some insane nightly dinner features–available from 4pm until they sell out!
The Daily Salad: Spinach, blue cheese, strawberries, granny smith apples, candied walnuts, red onions, lemon-dijon vinaigrette
Tasty Tuesday: Pork spareribs with burnt-ends baked beans
Chili Bowl Wednesday: Texas red chili and sweet cornbread muffin

There’s a Little Man next door to The Old Mine!

Everyone loves ice cream from that big milk can in Denver, and now, you can get Little Man at Sweets–right next door to The Old Mine! So head on over to The Old Mine for some world class Hard Cider and BBQ, then follow it up with a scoop of Little Man–right through our door that leads to Sweets. Sweet, indeed!

Mining for Good 2018

We didn’t create The Old Mine to only provide delicious cider, beers, and food to the people of Erie. We created The Old Mine to—you might say—ferment community.

Our space is designed to connect people, host groups, and do good.

Beginning again this Monday Jan 8th and going all the way to May 7th (!), every Monday, we’re opening our Community Room to host MINING FOR GOOD. Mining for Good is when local groups use our space to host fundraising events for causes that matter to the community.

On each of those nights, we will donate all profits (every dime!) to the group that has partnered with us for that evening. So, if you stop by The Old Mine on a Monday night this winter, and buy a beer and BBQ, the profit for that deliciousness will go to that Monday evening’s charity. If a charity isn’t signed up for that night, the profit will go into our Old Mine Mining for Good fund for needs in the community!

Grab a drink and do some good.

So, if your group would like to use The Old Mine to raise money for a good cause, let us know! Slots fill up fast! And if you want to use one of our Monday nights to host a private fundraiser for your group, let us know that, too!

Mining for Good—because it’s always a great idea to do some good.

-Kevin, John, Mike and The Old Mine Crew

Vanilla Bourbon Hard Cider

***EDIT – It’s all gone but not to worry, another delicious seasonal is on tap now!*** Congrats, Old Miner, you’ve made Santa’s nice list! To reward you for such exemplary behavior, he’s bringing out a big batch of Vanilla Bourbon Hard Cider for big pours and growler fills! Yes, the Handelbar you know and love settled in for a long winter’s nap snuggled up in Kentucky Straight Bourbon Oak and Fresh Roasted Vanilla Beans. A cider any Scrooge could love! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good draft.

The Old Mine Beer and Whiskey Cellar is Unleashed!

(Mustached Elf singing his own version of 12 days of Christmas…) “… Insane beers-a-plenty, crazy bourbon-really, the world’s best cider–all in Erie!”

Steer your one-hundred horse-powered front wheel drive sleigh down to The Old Mine for the top shelf whiskey and brews our distributors have kindly bestowed on us the last four years! Our beer cellar is stocked and every (!) cellared beer is either $5, $15, $25, or $35. Don’t be a Scrooge! Treat your table to some of the best brews you’ve ever seen!

And a heads up — back by popular demand starting in January, we’re bringing back lunches on Tuesday and Wednesday so you can get your midday fill of our slow-smoked BBQ and fresh-from-scratch pizza.

Cheers to you! And here’s hoping you have the merriest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap danced with Danny Kaye!

CrandleBerry Crisp Hard Cider

     ***EDIT – It’s all gone but new seasonals are pouring!*** Our cider is alive and sometimes has a mind of it’s own! Because we used 150lbs of fresh Wisconsin cranberries, this year’s Crandlebar took a refreshing and effervescent twist, earning it a new name: CrandleBerry Crisp. And it’s delicious! CrandleBerry is lighter, brighter, dryer, and with a subtle cranberry tart finish it leaves a bubbly tingle on the tongue. And … CrandleBerry is available for big pours and GROWLER FILLS to take to your Aunt Bessie’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. It is our gift to you!
     We are so grateful for all of you and would not be here today if it wasn’t for your support and wonderful community. Happy Thanksgiving Old Miners!

Handlebar and Hopped Up CANS!

Yes, we CAN!
    Brand-spanking new Handlebar and Hopped Up Hard Cider 4-packed cans are available for purchase at The Old Mine and will hit the shelves at select liquor stores over the next few days (County Line in Erie, Atlas Valley in Lafayette, Wyatt’s in Longmont, and more. Call ’em to see if they’re on the shelf and spread the Handlebar love!)
    THANK YOU for your support as we’ve Canpaigned hard once again to put our cider into cans!
