It's no secret that a few craft beers will inflict... a... shall we say, an enthusiastic gastrointestinal response when one has a spirited session of drinking. You can always rely on New Beer Friday to keep those home fire burning.
Proper Brewing Tripel Stamp - One beer? I'll take it! Not only is it a local beer, but it's a local beer - based on an old style - with a new twist. The addition of oats to this beer will give it more body than typical your typical Belgian style triple and this is style that generally doesn't suffer from lack of body. This beer will make it's debut this evening at a special release party at Proper beginning at 8pm. Look for a beer that is big on sweetness [due to the addition of candied sugars] low on hops with flavors that range from peachy to mango. Yeast spiciness will be prevalent also. These usually dial in between 9-11% ABV.
Speaking of Belgian Style Tripels, Shades of Pale has re-released their Saint Blackout Tripel. This new batch was bottled on Wednesday and is described as having flavors akin to peach and pear. The ABV comes in at a comfortable 9.3%. As an added bonus - you can now enjoy this and all of SOP's beer at the brewery as they have acquired a club license! Woot!
