On top of that we are having a brewery night tonight (Tuesday) with C.B. & Potts where we are tapping 3 of their GABF Gold Medal Winning beers:

That's a lot of new beer!

Come down at 6pm and meet the folks from Potts and play some Bar BINGO!  Buy a Potts beer and get a second BINGO card to double your chances to win beer bucks, fun swag and cool prizes.

It is going to be another great week at High Plains Tap House and Whisk(e)y Bar, so be sure to get in and check us out!

May all your beers be tasty!

High Plains Tap House and Whiskey Bar carries whiskey from all around the world. High Plains currently has over 80 whiskeys on the shelves with over 40 of those being the Single Malt variety. That collection is growing as well, and High Plains will be introducing over 10 more whiskeys in the next couple weeks.

Today we will be highlighting another fantastic whiskey from High West Distillery - Bourye!
More info on High West Distillery. High West has been around since 2006 and does distill its own liquor. What made High West 2011s "Whiskey Pioneer of the Year" winner is the fact that they blend different types of whiskey together, sometimes their own, oftentimes other people’s liquors into fantastic new creations!
High West Bourye is one of the whiskeys that they blend from other people’s liquors, and it comes out beautifully!

High West Bourye is a unique and premium blend of rich bourbon and rye whiskeys, making for a premier sipping whiskey. NO ice needed with this whiskey but a couple of drops of water helps it open its beautiful bounty to your senses.

The Name:
Bourye is a combination of "Bou" for bourbon and "rye" for..well, rye whiskey. Because combining bourbon and rye is a bit unusual, High West chose the Jackalope as the mascot for this amazing drink.

More Info:
All whiskeys in this carefully crafted blend are a minimum of 10 years old and sourced from multiple distilleries. See HighWest.com for technical details and sourcing, that’s not a secret. However, the proportions are!
Clarification from the High West - They buy Aged Whiskeys then blend them for additional aging and then they bottle the final product.

Filtration - not chill-filtered, or carbon treated
ABV 46%, 92 Proof

Age, Distilled by & Mashbill:
A blend of straight Bourbon and Rye whiskeys aged from 10 to 14 years.
Straight Rye Whiskey: 95% rye, 5% barley malt from MGP & 53% rye, 37% corn, 10% barley malt from MGP
Straight Bourbon Whiskey: 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% barley malt from MGP

Barrel Type:
Whiskeys aged in new, charred white American oak barrels

Sensory Notes:
Nose - Vanilla Butter toffee, Spiced Marzipan, Roasted Nuts, Dried Pineapple
Taste - Sweet Honey Nougat, Rich Caramel, Dark Ginger Cake, Mulling Spices, Dried Stone Fruit.
Finish - Long & Rich, Roasted Pecan, Molasses, and Crème Brûlée

Get in from May 11th through May 17th to enjoy this Amazing Whiskey at $5 off a shot!

May all your whiskey be tasty!

Free Wi-Fi is Back!

ShareThis
Nate here, Co-Owner of High Plains Tap House.
There has been some consternation lately with our lack of Wi-Fi. Unfortunately a very, very small group of people or even one individual abused our internet for illegal purposes and our ISP shut off our internet due to this fact. As a business we obviously rely on our internet for business purposes, and we cannot go without it. For this reason we shut off the Wi-Fi access while we assessed the business needs vs. the needs of our clientele and the security involved to protect Laura and I's business.
 
The security assessment has led me to make some security changes to the network. I have made some changes to our firewall ports to block some of the obvious places for abuse including Torrent ports and protocols among others. I will also be changing our password weekly. With that said, we have decided to turn back on our Wi-Fi.
 
If the few decide to ruin it for the many we will have no choice but to permanently shut off our Wi-Fi.
 
Thanks for your patience, and please feel free to ask your server or bartender for the weekly password.
 
Enjoy the free Wi-Fi.

High West Campfire is one of the whiskeys that they blend from other people’s liquors, and it comes out beautifully!

High West Campfire is the world’s only blend of Scotch, bourbon and rye whiskeys.
The main flavor is sweet honey from a ripe bourbon. The enhancing flavor is floral fruity spice from a mature rye whiskey. The accent is smoke from a peated scotch whisky.
This whiskey is so full of flavor that it explodes in your mouth every sip!  Like bourbon? You'll like this.  Like rye whiskeys?  You'll like this.  Like peated whisky?  You'll like this.  There is something in this whiskey for everyone!
