Join us at the Mass Ave Pub (745 Massachusetts Avenue, 317.974.0745) from 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, for two beers from New Belgium Brewing's Lips of Faith series. Our two featured beers will be Heavenly Feijoa Tripel (a collaboration brew with Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!) and Cascara Quad.
Here are the beer descriptions from New Belgium:
Heavenly Feijoa Tripel combines Dieu du Ciel!’s love of hibiscus flowers with New Belgium’s passion for strange and worldly fruit. Feijoa, also known as pineapple guava, has a sweet, aromatic flavor, which makes the aroma of Heavenly Feijoa Tripel luscious and tropical. The beer has Belgian yeast and Nelson Sauvin hops, combining to make a sweet fruit taste, mild spicy tones and a sharp bite. Hibiscus adds a cranberry tartness and an ambrosial quality to the color.
Cascara Quad is a dark, strong and surprisingly delicate ale made with dates and coffee cherries. Channeling the Trappist tradition, it’s brewed with an ethereal malt bill, and spiced with the fruit of the coffee bean (cascara). The aroma brings dates, cherries and pipe tobacco right to the nose and builds layers with hints of spice and fruity Belgian yeast. Once on the palate, Cascara Quad starts swinging clove, fig and molasses. Each sip offers sweet warmth, deep complexity and fleeting dryness.These are sipping beers, so Mass Ave Pub will be offering 9 oz. pours for $4.00 a piece.
