Where: Shallos Restaurant (8811 Hardegan Street, Indianapolis, IN)
Who: Shallos Beer Guy Doug (and the rest of the staff), who've been treating south side patrons to a fantastic beer selection for far longer than we at HBG have been in the business of reviewing beer.
What: Upland's Bourbon Barrel Aged Teddy Bear Kisses Imperial Stout - a stout aged on 23 year old Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrels. Shallos secured only a 6th barrel of the beer, so it'll go extremely quick. Luckily there's plenty of other fantastic selections to go around.
When: Tapped 11/03/09, until supplies last.
Why: Upland's regular Teddy Bear Kisses Imperial Stout is a fantastic beer by itself, but the addition of oak aging gives it a full oaky finish. A+ stuff from Bloomington's finest.
Also worth noting: Shallos tap list is overwhelming as usual: New Albanian Elector Imperial Red, Dogfish India Brown and 60 Minute, Bell's Two Hearted and Oberon, Three Floyds Gumballhead, Two Brothers Heavy Handed IPA, Warsteiner Dunkel, Breckenridge 471 IPA and Oatmeal Stout, Founders Breakfast Stout, Porter, and Pale, Left Hand Milk Stout and Warrior IPA, New Belgium Fat Tire, Stone Arrogant Bastard and Oaked Arrogant Bastard, Sierra Nevada Celebration, and a bottle list that no one in the city can touch.
