Tasting Room Hours For GABF. Treasure Coast Beer Fest Lineup.

Next week, Wednesday to be exact, we leave for GABF. The whole brewery is going which means we will NOT be open during our normal Wednesday thru Friday hours. What we will do is allow people to stop in Monday and Tuesday to satisfy their growler/keg needs. We'll only have Jai Alai and Maduro on, but we are planning on bringing the one-offs hard when we get back from GABF.

In the mean time I encourage everyone who will not be at GABF to attend Fort Pierce's 2nd annual Treasure Coast Beer Fest. We'll be pouring Jai Alai IPA and Maduro along with a special treatment I did of Wayne's 110K+OT Batch #2 Imperial Stout. It is a Cherry, hazelnut and cacao nib aged version of Bourbon Barrel 110K+OT Batch #2. I added cherry puree, raw hazelnuts and Peruvian cacao. In my samplings I get big cherry notes up front which quickly segues into chocolate, vanilla and lightly boozy bourbon notes. It's an after dinner/fireplace kind of beer so shove some ice in your undies before you drink it to get that cold weather effect.

p.s. Anyone who brings me a loaf of Cuban Bread while we are in Denver gets a free growler fill when we get back to Tampa! And that crappy Publix Cuban bread doesn't count!
