This epic just got vertical-er - Stone's Vertical Epic 08-08-08 should be showing up in New Albany and Bloomington Wednesday, Indy on Thursday and Friday and the rest of the state next week. Feel free to save it until 12-12-12 or not. Also if you homebrew you'll notice that link I posted has recipes for all of the Vertical Epics. Good luck trying to replicate their work! If you're curious what they've brewed up this time:
"The Stone 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale is a Strong Golden Belgian style ale highly hopped with American hops (Ahtanum, Amarillo and Simcoe). The beer pours pale golden with a thick and creamy white head of foam. The aroma is full of depth: nuances of pepper, clove, and banana from the Belgian yeast strain, and the resiny citrus notes from the American hops blend together nicely to provide a complex aromatic character. The taste is spicy, hoppy and fruity, with a very dry and a pleasant bitter end. The bitterness lingers nicely, and provides a refreshing finish!"Free beer again? - Rock Bottom is tapping their Happy Pils both Downtown and at College Park on Thursday at 6PM. What better way to pre-drink our party than with some free beer at Rock Bottom? At least that's my plan. Jerry will be brewing up an Imperial Pilsner similar to last year's and I have no idea what Liz will be doing because I live downtown. Typical tapping party details, free beer and appetizer bar from 6-6:30.
More like Mass Ave Beer Shop - Apparently Mass Ave Wine Shop is going to be growing a deli. Wait, that's not beer related? Maybe I forgot to mention that you can buy beer and wine in the store and consume it in the deli. Oh, and they have a decent beer selection. See, now it's beer related.
As if we need to say it again - Someone said something about Brugge hosting our 2nd anniversary party this Thursday from 8 until Ted kicks us all out because one of you thought it would be funny to make your own beer crepe. I hear they're putting on special guest taps just for us. Actually it's more for you guys because we can't drink all this beer ourselves.
or can we?
