What’s on Tap for Friday?

Keeping a secret is tough. And while I was going to wait until later in the week, it’s time to spill the beans (get it? beans?… and barbeque? oh, anyways) We’ve got a pretty big lineup for Friday – 12 beers with an average ABV up close to 10%. Whether you’re  a newly inducted craft beer drinker or a die hard beer knurd, this list should have you covered. Like our kids, however, we try our best to love them all equally.

The lineup goes a little something like this…

2 x Local Legend IPA – an American India Pale Ale brewed with Citra and Amarillo hops. It’s a contender.

2 x Blonde Ale – a very unique blonde with a touch of banana and clove

1 x Biere from Mars followed by .5 x Old Stock Ale

1 x Wealth & Taste – Belgian golden strong ale brewed with lavender, chamomile, and white wine grape juice

1 x Pale Ryeder – Palm sugar (as in the sugar from a palm tree) Rye Tripel (brewed circa 2008)

1 x Oaked Cherry Double Brown Stout – Baltic porter meets oatmeal stout with cherries and oaked (one word – ridiculous)

1 x Darkest Hour – Rye Imperial Stout – brewed with carob molasses and Belgian dark candi syrup

2 x Wit/Saison – hybrid brewed with triticale, candied ginger, toasted coriander, and chamomile.

1 x Pollenator – Honey Dopplebock brewed with locally sourced Texas wildflower honey

1 x Bourbon Oak Pollenator – Honey Dobblebock oaked

2 x St. Andrew’s Scotch Ale

That should just about do it. It probably goes without saying that we’ll be a little light on beer for the next few months (or a few years as is the case with the Pale Ryeder and Old Stock Ale). If you want to get a taste of things to come, we better see you Friday.

So, I guess the only question is, where are you going to start? Tell us which ones you love (or hate) in the comments below… We’d love to know what you think.

    The Darkest Hour sounds somewhat Abyss-like, which excites me… might save that until closed to the end though given that it may crush my palate for the night =P

    That’s 6, right? I can’t wait. I went to my first beer tasting in May @ the Flying Saucer on the lake and it was so fun and delicious. Best to you all! See you later!

    i would start with the blonde, then on to the ipa, then the double brown stout, then finish with the darkest hour.

    Smart, staying away from the toy kits. Any of the kits that make 5 gaolln batches will work. I started with a Brewer’s Best kit and have had no problems. You will have to add a brew-pot of at least 5 gaolln capacity and you will want to add a glass carboy for use as a secondary fermenter. That’s only the start. You will probably keep adding more and better equipment as you go. If you are handy, the book Brew Ware will give you some ideas of things you can build for yourself. I started with just a few things in the kitchen. I am moving to a place that will allow me to have a brew-house. It never stops.Buy a man a beer and he drinks for a day. Teach a man to brew and you’ve created a monster.
