New Beer Friday 1/3/14

In today's New Beer Friday, Firestone Walkers continues with "strong" offerings and the first batch of beer from the Annex is on tap now and looking to fill your glass. 

Annex Single Hop Golden Ale (Lemon Drop): The plan for this regular offing is to use different hops in every batch. Considering the size of the seven barrel brew system, this is likely to change quite often so stay on your toes. 4.0% ABV. @Annex

Firestone Walker Pivo Pils: A great, clean, simple lager with huge hop bitterness. Starts with peppery hops and biscuit. Toasted grain and crackers come next with subtle floral and lemonrass rounding it out. This is a really nice dryhopped pils. If you've stayed clear of Pilsners for a while it's time to come back. 5.3% ABV @Beerhive

Firestone Walker XVII Anniversary Ale: Big Bourbon up front. Toffee, chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, , toffee, fig and molasses follow. It's got quite a full body and has a abv of 13.3%. It's a little young, could probably use a couple months in the bottle. @Beerhive and eventually Liquor stores

Roosters Up a Kriek: An interpretation on a light, tart cherry lambic. @Roosters

Today's Firkin at the Bayou is courtesy Unsacred Brewing. Today the are pouring their Unfaithful IPA dosed with Chipotles. Tapping is at 3pm.


Cheers!
