Dark Horse Smells Like A Safety Meeting Double Dry-Hopped IPA Growler Fills (5/3)

May 2nd, 2016

This week we have an incredible hop-overload experience for you!!!  Hops, which are used for aroma & bitterness in beer, are closely related to species of plants in the hemp family, and certain varietals share similar aromas between each other.  Our friends at Dark Horse Brewing Company, located in tiny Marshall, MI, decided to dry-hop an 8.5% abv IPA recipe twice over, so you can experience an over-the-top hop aroma reminiscent of a “safety meeting” from across the room!

We will tap our only keg of this exceptionally fresh, and very limited, beer tomorrow (5/3) at 5pm!  *Due to the limited nature of this beer we will only be filling 32oz growlers.  Be sure you don’t miss out on this one, you’ll want to drink this one fresh!!!*

FREE New Belgium/Hof ten Dormaal Tasting Event (4/19)

April 18th, 2016

Most of you are quite familiar with New Belgium Brewing Company‘s Lips of Faith Series, which aims to brew uniquely interesting beers on a regular basis.  For their latest release, they have teamed up with a Belgian farm brewery from the tiny town of Tildonk called Hof ten Dormaal.  Blending together traditional Old World ingredients and New World innovation, they have crafted an uncommon springtime golden ale using spelt, malted sunflower seeds, wild carrot herbs, and Saaz & Mosaic hops!!!  That combination should give spicy & tropical notes on the bouquet and a nutty/bready/grassy flavor on the palate.  We will tap our only keg of this very special beer at 4:30pm on Tuesday 4/19 for growler fills of all sizes!  As a bonus, all 64oz growler fills will receive a 25th Anniversary New Belgium globe glass (while supplies last)!!!

As if that wasn’t enough, we just happen to have some other Hof ten Dormaal beers we thought would be super cool to taste through!  Available to sample from 4:30pm-6:30pm on Tuesday 4/19 will be:

  • New Belgium/Hof ten Dormaal Lips of Faith Golden Ale
  • Hof ten Dormaal Saison
  • Hof ten Dormaal Frambuesa i Chocolate (Dark Sour Beer brewed with Chocolate & Raspberries)
  • Hof ten Dormaal Zure (Spontaneously Fermented Sour Golden Ale)

Drop in at any time for this awesome and amazing event!  See you Tuesday!
