Who is Tim O’Bryan and why would he lasso himself to a tree? There will be a quiz. Alcatraz still has some 1.66666 Belgian on tap and it’s better than ever. Rich malt. Balanced. Pure beer with a touch of dark fruit and a drying finish. News from New Albanian (Grant Line Road): On Friday, October 30 an Anstich keg of Schneider Wiesen Edel-Weisse will be tapped in the early afternoon. It could be gone by 6pm so stop in right after work. An Edel Weisse is "an unfiltered wheat ale from Germany’s celebrated Schneider Brewery. Traditionally brewed for the Oktoberfest Celebration in Munich before Märzen style lagers became the standard, Edel-Weisse is described as full bodied, with unfermented sugar, and with more hops for balance, as having a more noticeable hop character than typically found in German Hefeweizens. Next Friday, November 6, we’ll have another Anstich (gravity) pour: Hochzeitsbier Märzen von 1810, from Brauerei Hofstetten in Austria." Some new Jolly Pumpkin we’ll see soon include Noel and Bam Noire Dark Farmhouse Ale. Also Thirsty Dog 12 Days of Christmas and Jewbelation Bar Mitzvah, their 13th anniversary beer (13 malt, 13 hops, 13%).
