Joe Hillman and friends are playing at KBC on Thursday, August 30 from 6-9pm.
This is a very busy beer, made with mesquite honey from Brandywine Bee Co. The honey derived sweetness, balanced by two German and one New Zealand hop avoid being cloying yet allowing a slight mesquite smokiness. Well balanced and layered with flavor.
This pilsner starts spicy, floral with sweet Pilsen malt in the front, gently tannic in the middle and then dry smooth and refreshingly bitter towards the end. The hops are all New Zealand, lending a hint of lime.
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%
What makes this beer Jammy is the all English malt bill, Maris Otter for the base and a dash of Carastan for toastyness. Add an abundance of Centennial hops for a citrusy edge and we’re there. At 5.3% ABV you might just find yourself under the affluence on incahol.
Think of Vermont as a beer style. This IPA uses the Vermont (Conan) yeast, U.K. malts and two American hop varieties, massively. Tons of light fruits, apple and peach drops, a bit zesty in the finish.
Our 3nd Anniversary double IPA made with passion fruit, tons of wheat malt and a correspondingly shocking amount of hops. Namely Mosaic and Simcoe for added fruit notes. Also one in the Haze Craze series of beers. At 8% it truly might be good night my friend.
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 5.3%
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.
