Thursday Tasting: Burial Beer Can Celebration Launch

Posted Jun 17, 2015 in Beer, Beer Art, Breweries, Coming Soon, Coolness, Events, Goings on, People

skilletJoin us on Thursday, June 18 from 5:00-7:00pm with the gang from Burial Beer. We’re celebrating their packaging launch. Skillet Donut Stout cans are already in-stock and both Bolo Coconut Brown and Scythe Rye IPA will be available the beginning July.

Bolo Coconut Brown: “The cleaver’s blade is strong enough and sharp enough to crack the toughest of coconuts. Easy drinking without lacking flavor, the addition of coconut is the perfect compliment to the subtle sweetness and nutty undertones present from the specialty malts.” [5.6% abv]

Scythe Rye IPA: “An aggressive harvest tool with a dynamic history, the scythe is traditionally used for harvesting crops. But it was adopted by the lower class as an implement of death during times of war and protest. Our Rye India Pale Ale also has a dual nature with the nose of your traditional IPA and the incredible malt complexity of your European pale ale. We use a healthy dose of malted Rye and Belgian Crystal malts while Summit and Chinook hops add that delicious hop flavor and the exclusive addition of Mosaic in the whirlpool and dry hop adds a profoundly unique blueberry and pineapple aroma.” [7.0% abv]

Skillet Donut Stout: “The perfect beer for your morning– a cup of coffee and a chocolate-glazed donut. Just like a well-seasoned skillet, this beer has all the right flavors-thanks to a healthy dose of Nugget hops and milk sugar, 6-row Pale malt from Riverbend Malt House and a 50/50 blend of cold pressed Hologram and Big Trouble coffees from Counter Culture Coffee.” [8.0% abv]
