Harpoon Tap Takeover at Olde Magoun’s Saloon
Harpoon's taking over the taps at Olde Magoun’s Saloon Monday, January 13th and we want you to join us! We'll be tapping kegs of some very rare Harpoon brews that you won't want to miss!
Here's what's in store:
Black ipa cask with chinook dry hops - A specialty malt called Midnight Wheat gives this beer an almost stout-like appearance without the overly roasty attributes often associated with traditional dark malts. Chinook, Simcoe, Cascade, and Citra hops provide a fruity aroma to complement the earthy, spicy bitterness of this dark ale.
Oyster Saison - A very drinkable interpretation of a Belgian Farmhouse Ale, with some unusual ingredients. Freshly shucked oysters and their liquor were added to the boil as well as a very subtle addition of New Mexico Red Chiles to add to the experience. 6% ABV
Tiger's Wood (aged 2 years) - A breakfast stout called Morning Wood was blended with a chocolate cherry porter called Diet Tiger's Blood and aged in a Bourbon barrel for months. The result is an 8% ABV dark ale with all kinds of complexity, from earthy coffee notes to sweet and fruity cherry and esters. Last logs in existence of this.
Alterholz - A balanced, sessionable German-style Alt beer was aged in a whiskey barrel over the summer, developing extra oak and fruit notes. 6% ABV
Rodney's Solera (aged 3 years) - We put Belgian ales in these oak barrels which were inoculated with a special mix of wild yeast / bacteria. When they're ready, we keg off 80%, leave behind the rest in the barrel and top them up with a fresh batch, in a process loosely based on the Solera system used by Spanish Sherry producers. This is the 5th generation. Dried cherry and apricot fruit notes and a winey fruitiness add to the balance of hops and Belgian yeast. 7.5% ABV.
Bronze King Barley Wine (aged 8 months) - Complex aromas and flavors of dark fruit, pepper, vanilla, and caramel complement the unique combination of Chinook and Tettnang hops in this hearty ale.
