All this week is American Craft Beer Week and as promised we’re throwing new beers on tap daily in celebration! Today we’re changing out two of the taps with a refreshing session beer, and a new beer that we’ve never had before.
Returning to the Couch – Hottenroth from The Bruery
This wonderfully refreshing beer comes in at a low 3.1% ABV and a scant 2 IBU. We serve it either straight, or with just a splash of raspberry syrup if you prefer to cut the tartness.
From The Bruery’s website:
Hottenroth Berliner Weisse is brewed in memory of Fred & Sarah Hottenroth, Patrick’s grandparents. This tart, German-style Berliner Weisse is as authentic as it gets. We use lactobacillus and a hint of brettanomyces to sour this very unusual, low gravity wheat beer. To cut the tartness for those with sweeter tastes, raspberry or woodruff syrup is a traditional way to sweeten the beer. Almost an extinct style, we hope to help revive the Berliner Weisse in memory of two great people.
For New Brew Thursday – Parabola from Firestone Walker Brewing
Because it’s Thursday, and in homage to our friends at New Brew Thursday, we’ve brought in a beer for you that we haven’t poured here before, but one that you’ve asking for! Although the weather isn’t well suited to a thick dark beer, we think you won’t be able to resist this one!
One of our most aggressive and sought-after offerings. Bold bourbon, tobacco and espresso aromas and a hint of American oak greet the nose. Rich, chewy roasted malts, charred oak and bourbon-like vanilla fill the palate and create a seamless finish. A remarkably complex brew that offers a transcendental drinking experience – enjoy with good company.
This beer comes in at 14% ABV and 82 IBU; a deceiving high number but hardly detectable. Due to the high ABV and the rarity of this beer, we’re limiting it to 1-8oz pour per person. But trust us… you’ll still enjoy it!
Join us tonight to continue the celebration for ACBW along with great craft beers!
