Hello Firkins faithful. We are writing this post to inform you that we will no longer be updating this site with new information. While Cloudprofile has served us very well over the years, we have outgrown its capabilites and thus have transitioned efforts to our new website. Please check the following resources/links below for all of our beer, industry and event updates.
Cheers! -The Four Firkins Crew
Just in time for the heat wave (oh, wait...) we have in Bell's very popular summer release, Oberon. Oberon is a beer with a "refreshing mix of malted wheat flavor and fruity notes, wrapped up in a distinctively citrusy hop aroma." It doesn't really have to be warm and sunny to enjoy this, it's perfect for picking you up after cold yardwook, too.
If you've never had it before, come on over and see why people have been asking for this for the past few weeks! See you soon. -Bryan
We have two hoppy beers from Mikkeller that just arrived. Ultramate 1000 is a theoretical 1000IBU's. We don't know if they are being cheeky and taunting another "Ultra" beer, but this one is very sessionable, at only 4.9%ABV. Hop Burn Hi is a Double Imperial Pale Ale and is blisteringly hoppy as well, and weighs in at 10%ABV. Not so sessionable, but full of the flavors of "delicious" and "good."
In case you missed it last week, we were able to get our hands of more this wonderful stout out of Stillwater. It's an imperial stout aged in whiskey barrels, then blended with a big milk stout and infused with local coffee. 8% ABV. See you soon - Bryan
Of course we have the usual Irish beer such as Guinness, Murphy's, Harp, and Smithwick's, but you also need to try out Poterhouse's Oyster Stout, a genuine Irish stout made with actually adding oysters to the boil. Rather than adding a fishy flavor, it imparts a firm mineral note, which compliments the chocolate tones of the beer very well. We also have O'Hara's Stout and Red, and the Porterhouse Red, for those of you who want to be Irish but tread off the beaten path. Slainte! - Bryan
