Coming Soon: Atwater Voodoo Vator Dopple Bock

Posted in Coming Soon or Just Tapped with tags , , on October 28, 2008 by burpcastle

Just in time for Halloween we will be tapping a keg of Atwater Block Brewing of Detroit’s Voodoo Vator Doppel Bock. Even for a doppel bock this one is strong at 9% abv. Here is a little bit about the beer from the people at Atwater Brewing:

This one is black and sweet! Its malty character is derived from two carmel malts along with Munich malt to create the smoothest high gravity beer this side of the “pond”.

This beer is not exclusively a Halloween Beer, and is guarunteed to keep you warm thru the cold days ahead.

This keg should be tapped tonight or tomorrow so stop in soon and grab a glass!

Gridskipper.com: The Best Beer Bars In NYC

Posted in News and Events with tags , , on October 28, 2008 by flyingbroccoli

Gridskipper.com, The Worldwide Travel Blog, did a profile on the Best Beer Bars in NYC yesterday, and Burp Castle was, of course, one of them! They had some nice things to say about us, although some of the details are not 100% accurate:

Burp Castle has a hilarious name, but it also has a mind-boggling selection of Belgian beers. The idea of the place is that you’re entering a holy environment, a “temple … of beer worship,” and you should drink and act accordingly. You’ll find dark wooden “pew” booths, large oil paintings, Gregorian chants, and robed servers speaking in passionate yet hushed tones about the more than 500 beers on offer. It’s a small space that gets crowded quickly, so arrive early and maintain patience at all times. Your beer prayers will be answered.

Check out the full post here.

Cheers, and thanks!
