Satan’s Airport Imperial Milk Stout with coffee
Brewed in lieu of the specialty coffee and beer event at Elizabeth Station last weekend, Aslan teamed up with Doma Coffee from Idaho to make a delicious and strong imperial milk stout to round out their hilarious mini-series of videos on their Instagram. Using specially roasted Guatemalan coffee beans, this stout has both coffee and milk chocolate notes, and goes down dangerously smooth for 9.5% ABV.
If there’s something Chuckanut knows how to do write, it’s a dunkel. This Munchener lager is roasty, malty, and mahogany in color, with just enough toasted bread and coffee notes to differentiate it from the Great American Beer Festival gold medal winning Dunkel. Chuckanut partnered with Primer Coffee on this one, making a perfect beer for those who may want something roasty and sweet but on the lighter side.
The Whole Cone Incident IPA
Golden Amber in color and 7% ABV, this beer is Amarillo-hopped through and through, making this incident one to remember.
Stones Throw Brewery
If you’re unfamiliar with the S.M.A.S.H acronym, it stands for single malt and single hop. In this case, the malt used was the Violetta pilsner malt paired with Simcoe hops. It has strong flavors of grapefruit and gooseberry and sits at 4.8% ABV and 33 IBU.
FUZZ IPA Cans
This Saturday, Structures will release their newest batch of FUZZ IPA. This one was made with Motueka and El Dorado hops. There is a 1-case limit per person.
