In what we hope to be the start of a great tradition over here at The Iron Press, we have locked down another great California craft Brewery to bring some really fun beer in for a super limited run in our humble little shop. This coming Tuesday – October 9th, 2012 AD from 6 PM – 10 PM PST, North Coast Brewing will be hosting our latest Tuesday Tap Takeovers! The lineup we have going this time will be:
*Pranqster – A 7.6% Belgian Style Golden Ale. A semi-permanent resident at The Iron Press, this brew uses a mixed culture of antique yeast strains that produce a floral nose, a full fruity flavor, and a clean finish.
*Le Merle – A 7.9% Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale. Abundant hops and a Belgian yeast strain contribute exotic aromas of tropical fruit.
*Old Rasputin – A 9% Russian Imperial Stout. It’s a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish. This bad boy will be served up on NITRO. That’s right. You heard me.
*Brother Thelonius – A 9.4% Belgian Style Strong Dark. Another semi-permanent resident beer is rich, dark, robust, and simply delicious.
*Old Stock Ale – An 11.9% Old Ale. Meant to be aged with a dark chestnut-amber hue, exotic winey aromas, and shockingly vinous fruit.
*Grand Cru – A 12.5% Oak Aged Ale. It’s subtle, complex and lightly hopped with a deceptive strenght, and aging it in oak gives this unique beer an extra dimension. The result is really “champagne-like.”
*Red Seal – A 5.4% American Amber Ale. Full bodied, generously hopped for a long, spicy finish. This is where things get really interesting, folks. We will be offering a back to back pairing of the Red Seal with…wait for it…wait for it…
*Red Seal Cask Conditioned – This is an unfiltered and unpasteurized version of the beer served using a traditional English beer engine or through NITRO in our case. No additional carbonation is added to the beer in this process. This sucker is meant to be served a bit warmer, so enjoy the normal Red Seal first, then sip a bit after.
As we have done in the past for you early comers, we may have some special little giveaways for ya *wink wink nudge nudge*. We are super excited about what we are bringing in this time, especially to see everyone’s reactions and hope to see all you beer heads here!
Smoochies, Len & Jerry
