Just Tapped: Sixpoint Belgian Double IPA

Posted in Coming Soon or Just Tapped with tags on November 26, 2008 by flyingbroccoli

Last night we tapped a Keg of Sixpoint‘s Belgian Double IPA at 10.2% abv.  This is apparently a really rare brew (only three reviews on beeradvocate.com).  This is a hyrbid style of a strong Belgian Style Ale and Double IPA.  This beer is hop forward as you would expect from a strong IPA, yet is extremely drinkable.  This beer was flowing last night, and we don’t expect it to stick around for long.  Get down to Burp Castle and have a taste…while you can.

Cheers,

Tom

Bigfoot is on Tap!

Posted in Coming Soon or Just Tapped, Get to know a Beer with tags on November 26, 2008 by flyingbroccoli

Bigfoot has once again been spotted, and this time it’s at Burp Castle. This once elusive beer has been around a little more readily in the past couple years, but this is our first Keg of the season. Bigfoot is a Barley-wine Style Ale.

For those who are not familiar with the barley-wine style…it is not a wine, but a very complex and strong ale. The style originated in England, and was a big robust and often fairly sweet beer. While the American Barley-Wine is a relative of its English counter part…the American version is made with substantially more hops, and resembles a Double IPA except with a stonger malt backbone.

Bigfoot is one of the strongest beers that Sierra Nevada brews at 9.6% abv. To quote the late famous beer writer Michael Jackson:

“…Bigfoot® captures the imagination, and its character is as big as the name implies, with a huge hoppiness in its earthy aroma, a chewy palate, and a great depth of flavor.”

This year is the 25th anniversary of Sierra Nevada’s Bigfoot, and should be on tap for a while longer. Get on down to the Castle and try it while it’s available.

Cheers,

Tom
