We are pleased to announce a special event happening in Portland tonight:
Horse Brass Pub is hosting a special beer release party for Norman Ale! Esquire magazine called Horse Brass Pub “One of the best bars in America,” and we definitely agree! We are so excited to celebrate the beer’s release with its own special evening. Things are getting started at 6pm tonight, Wednesday, December 4th. The address is 4534 SE Belmont St, Portland, OR 97215. The bar will be spinning our new record on vinyl during the event. How cool is this?! Bring everyone you know to the Horse Brass tonight and we’ll toast the absolute Eventyr this record and beer have been. See you there!
As an added bonus, the Oregonian has listed Norman Ale as one of their 20 picks for holiday gifts under $25! http://www.oregonlive.com/living/index.ssf/2013/12/20_local_gifts_under_25.html
We are pleased to announce the release of our third full-length album, Into the Eventyr, on Hey Amigo Records! The journey of creating this record has finally brought us to the international physical release of our much-anticipated record, featuring 10 tracks of music on vinyl, CD, and digital downloads.
Here’s what people are saying about the new record:
“Into the Eventyr” is full of hearty, harmony-filled rock in the spirit of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Matthew Sweet, but the edgy “Hawk,” the band’s synth-lined new single, may be the beer’s best match.” — The Oregonian
“On some songs they have really nice vocal harmonies going on, in others its more guitar-accented. (The final song, Leaving the Valley, does have an badass Allman’s guitar thing going on.) But the music is smooth, layered, and flows like water.” — Beervana
“A lazy, golden, heartbreaking tune for you today.” — Song for The Day
“Give a listen to this relaxing twangy tune. It’ll make you forget you live in the big city.” — KZME
Click our store link at the top of the page to find all the options for purchasing the record and other new merchandise including tee shirts and brand new pint glasses to support the simultaneous release of Norman Ale!
