Something New, Something Old, And Something Else New

Time for some more beer!

Boulevard Brewing Company Tank 7 Farmhouse AleA Special request from one of our customers, we have Boulevard Brewing Company’s Farmhouse Ale Tank 7, which is only rated a 99 out of 100pts on ratebeer. Here’s what they have to say:

“Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that’s just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard we have fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were experimenting with variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.”

Heavy Seas Peg Leg Imperial StoutHeavy Seas makes some delicious beer, and we’ve added their Imperial Stout, Peg Leg. “This full-bodied imperial stout pours an opaque mahogany color with a tan head. Its smell is dominated by notes of roasted coffee beans, with a slight hint of chocolate, but Simcoe and Fuggles hops add complexity to the aroma. The roasted barley is detectable in the taste, and this complements the bitterness from the Warrior hops—balancing out the sweetness from the load of malts used in brewing Peg Leg. A creamy mouthfeel makes this a smooth, utterly drinkable beer.”

Founders Brewing Company Red's Rye P.AAt another whopping 99pts comes Founders Red Rye PA: “Serious hop bitterness, along with an unyielding grapefruit bouquet from the Amarillo dry hop, balances the malty richness of four varieties of imported Belgian caramel malts. Pours a spectacular crimson with a creamy tan head. A generous addition of rye malt accentuates a spicy, crisp finish.”

There you have it! And we have it, open and cold, from 4-7!
