A few things for yer heads,
I have 2 beers coming on tap Friday (9/17), Flying Frog ESB (Extra Special Bitter- check yer shiny pamphlets for what an ESB is)and Crystal-ized American Wheat. Based on the success of the Citra-delic Summer Wheat I've decided to do a whole series of American Wheat beers featuring a single hop variety using the same base beer, this way you and our customers will really get a chance to taste the differences hop to hop. This one, you guessed it, is Crystal. Coming up on Sept.24th (Friday) I'll be releasing Hop-gasm Fresh Hop DIPA (double india pale ale), for this one I used the beer Deuane as a base then "wet Hopped" it with 60 pounds of fresh Citra hops (in technical terms that's a shitload). It's 9% abv and will be on CO2 instead of nitro (like deuane was).
And since people have been asking about an "Oktoberfest" beer I'm brewing Festivus, an amber ale that will be available around the first week of October(hopefully).
A couple other things I have planned for the very near future... KFc Pumpkin Stout (Kristen Fields Chocolate Pumpkin Stout, she gave me the idea and it will be served on nitro)... our "brewer for the day winner Doug Strouse's Raspberry Cream Stout... Pig Pig (a double bacon brown ale, yep bacon)... and don't forget about my collaboration with the Bavarian Barbarian, Gothika, a lightly smoked-black-double bock- lagered in freshly emptied Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels, 9.2%abv and it f**in' rocks!
