This is the second update in a week, because they’re going through beer like crazy at the Alibi and kegs are changing quickly (a group of Foodists were there last night… coincidence?) Here’s the news:
3 New Casks:
Driftwood Saison – conditioned with a mitt full of black pepper.
Dave Varga’s I.P.A. – not dry hopped this time. it’s been conditioning since feb 7th.
Swans Vanilla Porter. A mild porter with a month on a handful of vanilla beans. Slightly sweet. Subtle, delish.
– Nigel managed to get his hands on a keg of Lost Coast Indica I.P.A. (juicy, hazy, hoppy, wicked), pouring only at the Alibi.
– Longwood’s 1000 seven-month aged doppelbock. (Just amazing. Harley really nailed a difficult german style – Nigel)
(also picked up a cask of harley’s text book perfect e.s.b.)
– Last drips of Iain Hill’s Ould Bruin.
