New beers hitting the cooler at Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar (The Hopslam has been served for a month now, sorry so late for getting the 411 out). Founders Brewing Company and New Albanian Brewing Company are in the line-up and the offerings are above the average line and heading toward great!
Double Trouble- Founder’s Brewing Company: An imperial IPA that was brewed to turn your world upside down. Hops will get you coming and going. Pungent aromatics up front pair with a malt-balanced backbone and a smooth, bitter finish.
Hopslam Ale- Bell’s Brewing Company: Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell’s Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell’s repertoire. Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.
Imperial Stout- Founder’s Brewing Company: Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley, this stout is smooth as silk, yet complex and rich in body. Serve this guy at cellar temperature. Put another log on the fire, sit back, and enjoy the friendship of this ultimate winter warmer. A World Beer Cup Winner!
Solidarity- New Albanian Brewing Company: Baltic Porter is the best way to tip your hat to the activists in the Solidarity independent trade union, and a robust reminder of Baltic foresight in activism and strong beer.
