To celebrate our first ever NYE, we’re going to tap 5 rare beers and mead. Come by and help us ring in the new year in tasty fashion!
( While supplies last. )
RARE BEER #1: Firestone Walker Brewing Co. – STICKEE MONKEE
Each year, Paso Robles’ Firestone Walker releases a small-batch Barrel-Aged Central Coast Quad (Stickee Monkee) and a Barrel-Aged Barley Wine (Sucaba). This New Years’ Eve we’re tapping a rare barrel of Stickee Monkee, a lush, full-bodied dark ale with tons of barrel expression, from toasted oak to leather and rich cigar tobacco. This is the first of 5 special tappings we’ll be doing on New Years Eve, so stay tuned for more!
RARE BEER #2: OEC Brewing – ANTIOCH BLEND #2
RARE BEER# 3: Dovetail Brewery – KRIEK
Earlier this year, Chicago’s own Dovetail Brewery released a very small amount of kegs of its spontaneously-fermented Kriek, a cherry lambic style originating in Belgium. The brew was aged for a year in oak barrels before being rested with 2,300 pounds of Traverse City cherries. We procured a small barrel of what is likely the first spontaneously fermented ale brewed in Chicago since Prohibition and saved it for our New Year’s Eve celebration!
RARE BEER # 4: Cascade Brewing – PRIMORDIAL NOIR
This blend of imperial red ales from Portland Oregon’s, Cascade Brewing, is aged in Bourbon barrels with cherries and clocks in at 10.5% abv. Not often seen outside of the Pacific Northwest, this special brew is definitely a contender for rarest beer on tap on New Year’s Eve!
