Hey Gang! Thursday from 5:00pm until 7:00pm (ish). I’ll be hanging out at the bar for a little mug club happy hour action. We’ll put out a few apps and tap our new Funky Beer: Dr. Drie. In addition we will be doing a beer and cheese tasting so you should come by and check it out. In addition I plan to dig into my secret stash of R.O.S. and pour super secret beer too (I’ve got a couple of 3 liter bottles of beer-you-can’t-get-beer).
This pairing is one of my favorites: Cypress Grove Humbolt Fog and our award winning Saison du Hill
It is April fools day, I know…but this is a real deal event! In honor of the day of pranks come beer it up.
Here is the official Dr. Drie description:
The second in a series of 100% Brettanomyces fermented amber ale. A tribute to Armand Debelder master blender and former master brewer of beautiful Lambic style beers at Drie Fonteinen. Armand’s family has been offering stunning products since 1953. In 2009 he announced that they would no longer be brewing but only blending. A sad day indeed since Armand’s artful touch in the brew house allowed him to make beers worthy of Heaven. We’ve managed to lay our hands on a very special strain of Brettanomyces that seems to be found only in the family brewery at Fonteinen. We used it to barrel ferment this beer.
Dr. Drie is un-endingly complex, explosively fruity with aromas of caramel, sour cherry, and oak. The finish is dry with a touch of vanilla. Much like a certain master rapper, Dr.Drie is East Cost G-Funk for sure. Sur lees
