Long Play: An Album-Inspired Beer & Concert Project @ The Press Room
Feb 22 @ 9:00 pm

An exclusive release of Liars Bench’s “Nielsen Schmielsen” double IPA and performance of Harry Nilsson’s “Nilsson Schmilsson” by Jazzputin.

Doors at 8pm | Show at 9pm | 21+
$12 Advanced | $15 Day of Show

About Long Play: An Album-Inspired Beer & Concert Project

Presented by The Press Room and Liars Bench Beer Co. featuring Harry Nilsson’s “Nilsson Schmilsson” (performed by Jazzputin & friends) and Liars Bench’s “Nielsen Schmielsen” (double IPA exclusive release).

Let’s take a little trip back to 1971. It’ll still be a few years until Harry Nilsson will gain notoriety as John Lennon’s go-to Hollywood drinking buddy (and Smothers Brothers heckling cohort). Few know that the man is about to release his masterpiece. We’re referring to Nilsson Schmilsson, of course—the record that would go on to make Nilsson a household name, earn him placement on Pitchfork’s “Top 100 Albums of the 1970s,” and cement his standing among music history’s most beloved singers and songwriters. This, friends, is an album worth celebrating. Which is why we couldn’t have been more excited to learn that it was a favorite of our good buds at Liars Bench—and when they approached us to help them play proper tribute to it, we jumped at the chance. So, Liars Bench is releasing a delightful limited double IPA inspired by the record (fittingly named Nielsen Schmielsen and brewed with the famed Nelson Sauvin hops)—the perfect beverage to enjoy as the incredible Jazzputin, along with friends Taylor O’Donnell, Dave Talmage and more, perform their own unique recreation of this treasured piece of music at The Press Room.

After performing Nilsson Schmillson, Jazzputin will close the night with a second set of their original tunes and signature off-kilter renditions of popular songs.

In an ideal pairing of event and venue, Harry Potter Trivia is coming to Book & Bar courtesy of the magic makers at Tilton Brothers Brewing!

Runner-up prizes and a very special award for best team name will also be doled out like Dumbledore giving out house points at the end-of-year feast.

During the event, we’re releasing Book & Bar’s first ever collaboration beer! The Tilton Brothers are creating a brand-new stout blended with our house cold brew and a touch of rich cocoa. We’re using over 40lbs of Port City Roasters’ Sumatra roast to make this sinister concoction of all things dark.

It’s our 9th year of chocolate, cheese, & beer! We couldn’t be more excited to share this year’s four-course dinner with you – a dinner where we shine a light on the best of New England cheeses and chocolate, all paired with our farm-fresh beers.

We’re working on the menu now, but just thought we’d mention that last year’s evening included a local cheese and charcuterie board (complete with house-made crackers and jams), fettuccine with feta and Enna chocolate, artisan cheese curd-stuffed arancini, and a goat milk ricotta pie with beer wort caramel, blue cheese, and chocolate!

And the beers! There will be six beer pairings- a few making their debut that week. Our brewers have given their blessing to share a few with you here, so if a new Pineapple Party Pants (Pina Colada-Inspired) Sour, Belgian Strong Ale, and Salted Caramel Milk Stout sound up your alley, consider making your reservation now!

Seats are $55/person (plus tax & gratuity) and are available upon reservation via email, phone, or here at the brewery. Upon making a reservation, we’ll grab your credit card, which won’t be charged until the end of the evening on 2/26/20. Please note that this event has a history of selling out, so grab your seat today!

RYE — Aged in rye whisky barrels from Flag Hill Distillery in Lee, NH, this cider is heaven for barrel aged cider fans. It is off-dry and has huge vanilla and whisky notes that are complemented nicely by the light oak from the barrels. 6.75%ABV

OLD FORREST — This off-dry cider is aged in 7 year-old Woodford Reserve barrels. These special barrels give the cider a wonderful vanilla nose and rich color. 6% ABV

DOUBLE HAUL — This off-dry cider is aged in Flag Hill’s heavy rum barrels for four months. These incredible barrels add complex notes that play deliciously well with our cider. 5.5% ABV

BERRY BRETT — This dry and funky cider is aged in Woodford Reserve barrels with the addition of blackberries, blueberries and pomegranate, along with Brett. 8.0% ABV

UVARUM — This dry cider is wild fermented in a Flag Hill rye whisky barrel with the addition of experimental grape grown at the UNH Farm. It is then aged for two months. 6.0% ABV
