Tapped: Weyerbacher Slam Dunkel, Summit 20th Anniversary ESB, Sly Fox Jasper Maibock

The drafts keep changing over. Change is a good thing.

The quite popular Clipper City Heavy Seas Red Sky at Night was replaced by
Weyerbacher Slam Dunkel. Slam Dunkel is a dunkel weisse, a dark hefe weizen, a somewhat rare style that is suprisingly under-represented here in the USA. Enjoy this summer seasonal while it lasts.

Summit 20th Anniversary ESB replaced Bells Two Hearted Ale. A nice session beer for folks who want something that is neither wheaty nor over the top hoppy.

Sly Fox Jasper Maibock replaced Sly Fox Fuggle IPA. As usual Sly Fox's Maibock is named for the current winner of their Goat Race. After winning, Jasper celebrated by eating a cigarette butt off the ground. Being in the presence of such a champion was humbling indeed.
