As always the artwork is half the fun when it comes to Adroit Theory, but this also represents their first foray into the popular 'New England style' IPA/DIPA. The juicy and hazy character makes for delicious short term drinking, and this batch was bottled last Thursday so it's about as fresh as they come. This will also be the start of seven distinctive releases over the coming months with variants off the original, and like any successful mini-series it is important to make a big splash with the first installment. In addition to the EBK we are also tasting the newly arrived Avery Brewing Co. 'El Gose', a super-fresh batch of, well, Peak Organic 'Super Fresh' Pilsner (canned two weeks ago; lager by name but hopped like an American Pale Ale), and Harviestoun 'Old Engine Oil' Black Ale (an English classic). Hope to see you here!
We had a lovely little surprise arrive on our doorstep when two new canned offerings from BadWolf materialized. What better reason to have a tasting? The 'Kaiju' IPA and 'Mother Pucker' Raspberry Sour are both slated to be regular offerings in their new packaged lineup, so it will be interesting to see how they measure up. Along with these two we are also featuring their 'Jesse's Girl' American Amber (hoppy and nicely balanced), along with a new arrival from VA Beach area brewery O'Connor ('Shipwreck Bay' Nelson Sauvin Saison) and the Knee Deep 'Stout-ella' Chocolate Hazelnut Stout (because you are just as curious as I am, aren't you...). All these will be available for tasting through closing time tonight. Hope to see you here!
