Compendium of Curiosities at Strangeways Tonight

Strangeways Brewing gets a little bit more peculiar with their new Compendium of Curiosities series starting tonight Wednesday June 19th at 4pm

Here are the details straight from the monkey’s mouth:

Step Right Up Ladies and Gents, Strangeways Brewing’s Tasting Room Introduces:

EACH WEDNESDAY (starting tomorrow June the 19th) we plan on tapping special selections of NEW draft beers. These drafts are in small quantities, and will be available at the brewery tasting room only (while supplies last). Tappings will occur at 4:00 pm. We apologize, but no growler fills on CURIOSITIES Beers.

… This Week, CURIOSITIES Come in Threes:

I. BERRY MERITAGE WALLONIAN DAWN HONEY SAISON: Note the black and red currants for fruitiness and tang, the hibiscus for tartness, rose hip chips for smoothness and raisins for a natural sweetness

II. MALLORCA MELON ALBINO MONKEY WHITE ALE: A delicious blend of Spanish cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, hibiscus, and Seville orange for a sweet and tangy infusion

III. CARAMEL DREAM WOODBOOGER BELGIAN BROWN ALE: Caramel and Madagascar vanilla to give a sweet note to this earthy blend

The Bruery Is The Answer At Mekong Tonight

The Bruery logo2The Bruery, out of Orange County, CA, is by far one of my most favorite breweries around.  My favorite brew from them has to be Autumn Maple; I mean yams and maple syrup in a beer, come on!  Side note: check out all of these recipes using their beers!

Naturally, I’m ecstatic to try the selection Mekong has chosen for a mini tap takeover tonight Wednesday June 19th featuring six of their beers plus a special Andall.  Many of these beers are competely new to me so that is an absolute bonus. 

Here are the beers they will be tapping at 5pm starting off with The Bruery’s fifth anniversary beer, Bois:

Bois – 5th Anniversary beer – 15.5% Olde Ale
White Oak – Wheatwine aged in Bourbon Barrel
Hottenroth – 3.1% Berliner Weisse
Rugbrod – Danish Rye
Trade Winds – Tripel with Thai Basil
Humulus Lager – Hoppy Lager or IPA with Lager yeast
Hottenroth Andall with fresh peaches
