Continuing with Nashville Craft Beer Week... We're ramping up to Saturday's East Nashville Beer Festival. Once again, we'll have a tent with eight different Belgian beers. Here's what we're pouring:
- Brouwerij Bosteels Tripel Karmeliet
- Omer. Traditional Blond
- Brasserie St. Feuillien Saison
- Brasserie St. Feuillien Grand Cru
- Brasserie St. Feuillien Brune Réserve
- Gulden Draak (Dark Triple)
- Poperings Hommel
- De Leyerth Brouwerijen Urthel Samaranth Quadrupel
Also, we currently have a few really special bottle releases that will likely be gone by the week's end.
Brooklyn Brewery just put out their Silver Anniversary Lager, bottled in 750ml bottles with caged corks, and weighing in at a hefty 9%. It's been 25 years since they brewed their first batch... And they're (rightly) making a pretty big show of all the success. Check out the brewery blog for the full story... Or stop by the shop to snag a bottle of brewing history.
Speaking of really successful breweries, New Belgium is stirring things up, too. The current selection of their Lips of Faith series features four high-gravity beers (compared to the usual two).
That includes the La Folie 2013, which is up over the TN h/g mark for the first time ever (at 7% abv). Watch out, it's even more sour than usual.
