Come by the shop, Thursday February 12, 4-6 pm for Thirsty Thursday featuring Finchs Beer out of Chicago. We will be tasting Secret Stache Stout won a gold medal in the stout category at the 2013 United States Open Beer Championship, and then won a silver medal in 2014 in the same category. Heaps of chocolate malt give this beer color as well as chocolate and coffee notes. Vanilla beans and lactose lend to its complexity and full flavor. Torrified wheat is also used for additional body and head retention. Sobek & Set is named after the Egyptian gods representing a boar and a crocodile. The beer is dark with mahogany and burgundy highlights. This is achieved by using generous amounts of Briess Midnight Wheat for a dark color and smooth finish without the astringent, roasted qualities. Caramel malt is also present. This beer is balanced with earthy and citrus hops. Fascist Pig is a deep red, malt-forward ale brewed with plenty of caramel malts and a touch of rye for a hint of spice. The beer won a bronze medal in the strong beer category at the 2014 International Beer Festival. This big American red ale is brewed and dry-hopped with palisade, an earthy and somewhat floral, mentholated American variety, and Zythos, an American blend.
