July Brewery Spotlight – Alltech Lexington

Barrel Storage

One of the things we are passionate about here at Ravenwood Castle and the Malted Meeple is craft beer. We pride ourselves on having an excellent assortment of craft beers for the enjoyment of our guests. In our new monthly blog feature, the Brewer’s Spotlight, we raise our pints to the men and women who dedicate themselves to the brewing craft. This month, we raise our pints to the folks from Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co., a company with a unique history and brewing process!  Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. is based in Lexington, Kentucky. The company was founded in 1999 when Alltech, a company who made its name in animal nutrition, purchased Lexington Brewing Company. In 2012, Town Branch Distillery was opened and…

R&R Logo

One of the things we like to do here at The Malted Meeple is give some extra attention to our favorite board game publishers and designers.

July Game of the Month – BIOTIX

BIOTIX

The Game of the Month series highlights one of the many games in our libraries at Ravenwood Castle and The Malted Meeple. We will briefly describe the game, how to play it, and why we like it. Eureka! Our July Game of the Month is BIOTIX, from our friends at Smirk & Dagger Games! World-renowned Dr. Johannae has made a breakthrough in the field of micro-biology! She has discovered a new breed of microorganisms, codenamed: BIOTIX. These BIOTIX are extremely volatile, however; they can exist uneasily within a small system. As one of Dr. Johannae’s lab assistants, you have been tasked with growing a culture of the notoriously unstable BIOTIX. However, microbiology can be a cutthroat field, especially when a new discovery is on the line. You…

July Milkshake Madness

Milkshake Flight

The conclusion of another Milkshake Madness battle is upon, and brings with it a new victor! It was a close race this month but Elmer Fudge has managed to hunt and defeat the Razzmanian Devil and Marvin the Marshmallow. It appears the delicious fudge has won the hearts (or stomachs) of many in this competition and has risen to be July’s Milkshake of the Month. We love summer blockbuster hits at the Meeple so it should come as no surprise that July’s competing milkshakes are Spiderman themed. The three shakes are Spiderman (Strawberry Banana), Green Goblin (Lime, Kiwi, and coconut), and Sandman (lemon cookie). So stop by the friendly neighborhood Malted Meeple throughout July and indulge in a delightful milkshake that celebrates exciting new films…
