Draft Beer Update

Kicked: Sam Adams Hallertau Imperial Pilsner sixtel, Samuel Adams Fat Jack Double Pumpkin sixtel, Victory Hop Ticket #4 Noble IPA, Sierra Nevada / Cigar City Beer Camp Yonder Bock.

Tapped:

Flying Fish Oktoberfish - one of my favorite fest style beers. It must be for others too, cuz it always goes fast.

Yards Cape of Good Hope IPA - Yards super popular high octane, super hopped imperial pale ale. This seasonal won't last long.

Stoudts Pumpkinfest - This an Oktoberfest style lager pumpkin spice beer. Those two things go togther well.

Heavy Seas The Great'ER Pumpkin (sixtel) - this is a higher octane pumpkin beer, so small pours only.

The first of five George Hummel Birthday Tour beers to be tapped for tonight's Dogfish Giotta's Blues - Liquid Poetry for a Poet, Paul Coff, Iron Hill Coco Loco (sixtel), replaced Dock Street Summer in Berlin. Wow that was some sentence. But this is some event. George Hummel, a legend in the Philly beer scene, long time co-owner of Home Sweet Home, and long time beer writer and author, collaborated with various breweries to celebrate his 60th birthday. One of these beers was in honor of his late friend and ours Paul Coff, who passed away this year after battling Parkinsons. All 5 beers were donated and all proceeds are going to Parkinsons research. Coco Loco is a Belgian golden strong ale is brewed with Mandarina and Nelson hops and aged on 50 pounds of freshly toasted coconut for an exotic twist.

Also tapped for tonight are:
Nodding Head Georges Fault (sixtel) - this 9% ABV Belgian strong ale with honey won the gold at GABF a few years ago. This beer does not drink like a 9%er so be careful.

Dogfish Head Giotta's Blues (sixtel) - With 5 types of malt, maple syrup, anise, licorice root, sweet orange, grains of paradise, 2 types of hops, and a Belgian style yeast, Giotta's Blues seems like it will be a pretty crazy beer. But that's probably why George chose Dogfish Head to make it with him.

cask-conditioned Yards Southern Brown Ale - a clone of an ale brewed in 1933 by Whitbread Brewery. As an English ale tribute, the complex beer boasted an attractive mix of sweet malts and hints of caramel, aside rich, earthy characteristics and subtle whiffs of lemon

Stewart's Wheat IPA (sixtel) - brewed with 50% wheat, and Mt Hood and Cascade hops

These had to be untapped and will be back: Heavy Seas Red Sky at Night, Sierra Nevada / Cigar City Beer Camp Yonder Bock, Sierra Nevada / Bells Beer Camp Maillard's Odyssey, Beer Engine: cask-conditioned Yards ESA

Not only is there a great event going on today with some unique Dogfish Head beers, but it is also Taco Tuesday here at the Grey Lodge.  You don't want to miss it!

Draft Beer Update 

On Saturday, I told you Free Will Techno IPA was a winner. The keg only lasted one day. And it was a normal sized half keg; we don't do sixtels if we can help it. Replacing it is Sierra Nevada Flipside Red IPA. We had this one in a few weeks ago. Victor Corona liked it so much, he asked us to get another one. When a regular asks, we do. It's even easier when the request is a beer that will fly out of here.
