Welcome the newest beer offering from Boom Island Brewing in Minneapolis! A robust 8.5% abv Dubbel-style ale! Dark fruits & banana abound with hints of cocoa and roasted malt, balanced by a sweet figgy, spiced raisin undertone. A hint of boozy warmth finishes off this great interpretation of a classic Belgian strong dark ale. You should come and get some of this right away, seriously come here right now and get a bottle of this! Cheers! -Michael
Not a traditional "Kriek" but this "2010 Vint., Strong Golden ale is aged with a generous amount of local organic cherries... for a minimum of 3 months in French Oak wine barrels." A very limited edition batch release, we only received a small amount, so if you are interested come get it quickly.
Also fresh off the truck is the anticipated seasonal release of Founders Double Trouble Imperial IPA. A pungent juicy bitter hop bomb, backed with a generous amount of malty sweetness. Coming in at 9.4% abv, it packs a punch and is sure to please your hop loving tendencies!
See you soon! Cheers! -Michael
WOW, we sampled these out Saturday night and were very impressed. Gypsy brewer Mikkeller has made four identical beers with the only difference being they type of hop used. To me, Centennial gives the beer a bitter citrus/pith/pine aroma and flavor, Amarillo lends a pineapple/peach/candided fruit aroma and flavor, Nelson Sauvin gives mango/white grape tones, and Sorachi Ace explodes with lemongrass flavors. It's a really fun experiment and will certainly give you a much better understanding of how much influence hops have in the final product. See you soon - Bryan
Celebrate the final day of this cold stretch by coming on down to the Firkins and sampling some amazing beer. Alan from SBS Imports will be pouring samples from De Proef including Reinart Wild Ale, Zoetzuur, and Lozen Boer Abt. We will also be pouring Bellegems Bruin, a lightly sour Flanders Brown. See you soon! - Bryan
We are opening up our non beer selection tonight and you don't want to miss this one. The French apple cider has a fresh tartness with a hint of apple skin flavor. The French pear is very dry and refreshing with a subtle herbal character. The Spanish ciders are a tart wake up call; fans of beers made with wild yeast will love these. One of them reminds me of a German Gose, the other is pleasantly cheesy and funky. They are available now, and you definitely need to try them tonight! See you soon, - Bryan
