BerdDog Music Club is playing at KBC on Sunday, September 30 from 6-9pm!
Don’t IPA me I’ll IPA you! This is a sour, a Belgian and a bit Yank, and a little dank. Lorries full of hops in this one, Citra and Simcoe, pucker up mate. ABV 6.2%
Haze craze, juicy, Double Dry Hopped IPA, very sexy posh hop varieties. Idaho 7 and Citra, hence the name. Very refreshing and easy to drink with a slight bitterness in the finish. Did we mention juice? ABV 7%
Orangey, a little hoppy and lots of spice, uses enough wheat and is hazy enough to safely be a “wheat beer” Clean in the phenol department with squishy citrus fruit on the finish. Has safe and squishy ever been so exciting? ABV 5.6%
Word has it, Porter is the original ale. The recipe is an agglomeration of historical London grist bills with English brown malt for a burnt cookie chocolate note, with the English ale yeast yielding a stone fruit, figgy flavor. Smooth, rich, but sessionable finish. Recommended for general family use where a Pale Ale is not required. ABV 5%
This sexy little number (not Her Majesty) stands up there with the best of the English Bitters. Crisp and creamy. Simple, elegant. Hay, a bit of honeyed biscuits, Ladyfingers clean, dry with a mouth-filling stone fruit note. Not exceedingly bitter but loads of flavor.
About six quid, I think. A blend of rye, lots of rye, US and Flemish pale malts with a hefty addition of New Zealand late hopping (herbal, fruity white grape skin notes) make this one wicked neat beer. At 7.5% this is a cracking pint for quaffing and then a walkabout.
This crimson colored scotch ale has a dark caramel note only possible with a traditional Scottish 4-hour boil. A moderate hop schedule reveals a complex flavor profile reminiscent of dark fruit and toast. Succulent finish. ABV 6.3%
Classic summer beer from Cologne, refreshing, easy drinking and not too high in alcohol. All German pilsner malt with a touch of Vienna so the dryness is not too pronounced. Gentle persons, start your lawn mowers.
