Grinders Chocolate Ale Auction


Though the Boulevard Chocolate Ale supply in town continues to dwindle, there's one more interesting opportunity to get your hands on a mass quantity of it, if you have wads of cash burning a hole in your pocket. Grinders Pizza is auctioning off a 1/6th barrel keg (approximately 47 pints) of Chocolate Ale to the highest bidder.

And if the "price is right" on the final bid, they will include a private party for you and a minimum of 10 friends that will include pizzas and other Grinders swag.

To submit your bid for the chance to win the Chocolate Ale keg, e-mail grinderspizza@gmail.com with the subject "My Chocolate Ale party bid" and the following information:

- Bid amount
- Name
- Contact phone number

Bids are due by sundown on Friday, February 24th. As of this posting, a starting bid of $350 had been submitted, so if you are interested in this opportunity for a private Chocolate Ale party, e-mail Grinders at the address above with your bid.

  2. Who cares? Grinder's can decide to do whatever they want with their own property. They could dump it out in the middle of the street for all I care.

  4. I hope this spirals out of control for Grinder's. I don't want this kind of thing to become the norm. Bad karma if you ask me.

  7. ABC is in Kansas Grinders is in Missouri and deals with Liquor Control. They are not "Giving away", they are selling. In Missouri as long as they do not sell under cost they are good to go. Just unique way to sell imop!

  9. I don't know, maybe they're doing it because they don't want to put it on tap. Personally, I thought chocolate ale was foul. Maybe they're just trying to get rid of it all at once instead of having it on tap for three weeks because people don't want to drink it they want to own it.
