New Year Eve: 3rd annual Beer Geek Starter Party
We tap some rare and lovely beers early so you can start the evening with us and then head down to the Quarter…or spend the whole night drinking Cantillon!
** Due to a Crane Accident in Nova Scotia our Fou Foune shipment has been delayed and won’t make it to the Pub in time for New Years Eve. Shelton Brothers is generously sending us bottles of Mamouche from their cellar to substitute and make all you Beer Geeks happy for the New Years Eve Starter party. This is very generous on their part, because it takes 8 cases of beer to make up for one keg – and Mamouche is every bit as rare as Fou Foune! The shipment of Fou foune will land sometime after the first of the year and we will let you know a tapping date when we schedule it…
Partial beer list for that night will be:
- Cantillon Mamouche (bottle pour)
- Amager Bryghus Hr. Fredrickson
- West The Dog Ate My Homework Blackberry Saison
- De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis (Hell & Damnation), aged in Wild Turkey Barrels
- Dieu De Ciel! Grande Noirceur
- Struise Ypres Flemish Red Ale
- Struise Black Damnation III- Black Mes aged in Caol Ila Scotch Barrels
- Struise Blackberry Albert Aged in Blackberry Whiskey Barrels
