Just tapped: Duchesse De Bourgogne – Brouwerij Verhaeghe 6% ABVduchess

Brewer’s Notes:
“Duchesse de Bourgogne” is an ale of mixed fermentation. It is a sweet-fruity ale with a pleasant fresh aftertaste. This ale is brewed with roasted malts and with hops with a low bitterness. After the main fermentation and the lagering , the “Duchesse de Bourgogne” matures further for many months in oak casks. The tannins in the oak give the “Duchesse de Bourgogne” its fruity character. “Duchesse de Bourgogne” has a full, sweet and fresh taste : it is a ruby red jewel of 6.2 % alc. vol., that best is served in a chalice-shaped glass between 8 and 12°C. A perfect beer.

Just tapped: Harpoon IPA – Harpoon Brewery 5.9% ABVharpoon

Brewer’s Notes:
Our IPA finds harmony in the combination of hops, malt, and yeast so that no single ingredient dominates the drinking experience. The sturdy malt backbone provides depth of body and color and is balanced by a pleasantly hoppy finish…best enjoyed with friends.

Back on tap: Super Secret Stout – Bold City Brewery 9.2% ABVsss

Brewer’s Notes:
American sweet / dry / milk stout hybrid. A large amount of roasted and chocolate flavors should be expected with a nice sweetness to balance out the finish.

Back on tap: Dale’s Pale Ale – Oskar Blues Brewery 6.5%dales_pale_ale_can

Brewer’s Notes:
delivers a hoppy nose and assertive-but-balanced flavors of pale malts and citrusy floral hops from start to finish.

Oskar Blues launched its canning ops in 2002, brewing and hand-canning Dale’s Pale Ale in the Lyons, ColoRADo, brewpub. America’s first-craft-canned mountain Pale is a hearty, critically acclaimed trailblazer that changed the way craft beer fiends perceive portable beer (6.5 percent ABV and 65 IBUs)
