Welcome dear readers to 2012. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season. It took me a bit longer to recover from all the
drinking celebrating than I thought it would. I thought I’d have another week before any cool beer events would show up in the calendar. Capital Ale House has proven me wrong with events exclusively at their Downtown and Innsbrook locations.
Downtown Dogfish Head Tapping
The Dogfish Head Tapping event started New Years Day and continues until Saturday, Jan 7th. Namaste, Theobroma, Midas Touch, and My Antonia were tapped in the last two days. There’s a good chance you may still be able to get some of these today. Here’s what you can expect for the rest of the week. Tappings will start at 4pm Tues – Fri and 7pm Sat
Tuesday January 3rd
Palo Santo Marron
Wednesday January 4th
Thursday January 5th
Black & Blue
Friday January 6th
Saturday January 7th
Miles Davis Bitch’s Brew
Innsbrook Single Randall Nights
Starting 5pm this and every other Friday in January, the Innsbrook location will be running a much beloved IPA through a randall of hops as an experimentation in taste. Hopheads this is an event for you. Go out and experience it for yourself and make sure to give your feedback. Capital Ale has carefully selected the hops paired with each beer and wants you to judge on how well they work. Servers or bartenders will have comment sheets so you can tell them what you think.
January 6th: Bear Republic Racer 5 run through Chinook hops
January 13th: Founders Centennial run through Columbus hops
January 20th: Stone IPA run through Fuggle hops
January 27th: Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA run through Nugget hops
If anyone had a resolution of cutting down on beer, I predict you will be breaking it this week. I’m sure there is a lot of other stuff you can resolve to change.
