Join us next Thursday from 5-9 p.m. as we welcome Firestone Walker Brewing Co to Prairie Moon!
We’ll have four of their brews on tap. Try all four of them in a flight, or enjoy a pint of your favorite! Here’s the line-up:
- Bringing down the Farmhouse! This dry-hopped saision is Firestone Walker’s interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style, and boasts a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting notes of lemongrass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast creates a complex yet dry beer with hints of citrus and stone fruit, then ending in a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness comes from Styrian Golding, Amarillo, and Hallertau Blanc (Dry Hop) and is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing.
- A decadent oatmeal stout. Velvet Merlin offers robust cocoa and espresso aromas with subtle hop nuances from US grown Fuggle hops. Maris Otter, 2-Row Pale, Roast Barley, English Dark Caramel, Medium Caramel, Carafa Malt, and Oats (15%) make up the extensive grain bill. Rich dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish create the perfect balance in this full-bodied stout. Ideal for sipping in the winter months or at the end of a meal.
- A Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout–one of the most aggressively and sought-after offerings from the brewery. Bold bourbon, tobacco and espresso aromas and a hint of American oak greet the nose. The grains that make up this monster beer are Crisp Maris Otter Pale, Munich, Cara-hell, Carafa, Dark & Light Crystal, Chocolate, Oats, and Roasted Barley. Rich, charred oak and bourbon-like vanilla fill the palate and create a seamless finish. A remarkably complex brew that offers a transcendental drinking experience – enjoy with good company.
- An unfiltered Black Rye IPA–a unique twist on the Cascadian Dark Ale style. Wookey Jack offers true hop aroma to rival most IPAs, with pungent citrus and herbal hop nuances, a hint of peppery rye and earthiness on the nose. Big roasty malt flavors come from Pale Malt, Malted Rye, Dash of Cara-Rye, Midnight Wheat from Briess, De-Bittered Black Malt (Weyermann – Germany/Patagonia malting – Chile), and just a Dash of Wookey dust. German Magnum (bittering), Citra & Amarillo (flavor/aroma and double dry-hopped) make for a balanced hop bitterness while spicy rye offers a full and complex texture with a refined bittered finish. A truly different IPA for dark beer fans. Wookey Jack won the Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2012 and 2013.
See you Thursday!
