Now Is Your Chance to Design Monday Night’s Next Clip On Series Release

Monday Night Brewing (Atlanta, GA) has just released their Serrano Eye Patch Ale in six packs for the first time. This is the first release in a new Clip-On Series. The best part? You don’t just get to drink these new beers, you get to be involved in the process.

Monday Night Serrano Eye Patch is riff on their year round English-style IPA, Eye Patch Ale. Using fresh cut serrano peppers, the result is a spicer take on a usual suspect. This is where you come in.

Monday Night has enlisted Beer Street Journal’s audience’s help to create the next beers in the series. So it’s time to get creative. Monday Night’s year round lineup includes Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale, Nerd Alert Pseudo-pilsner, Blind Pirate Imperial IPA, Fu ManBrew Ginger Wit, and of course- Eye Patch IPA. Using these base recipes as inspiration, time to make it your own. Monday Night already got you started with Serrano Eye Patch. Now you grab a beer and get creative.

Leave your ideas in the comments below and Monday Night will choose the best. Once we have style picked out, then come back and we name it.

What’s your idea? Give it a shot. Tell us below. A test batch of the winning brew will be available on draft at the brewery. You and 10 of your closest friends can attend the launch at Monday Night so start brainstorming.

Extended! Though 11:59 pm on June 1st!

The Washington Capitals won the game in overtime, 2-1.

Left Hand De’Nile Coffee Ale, For Old Chicago

Left Hand Brewing (Longmont, CO) currently has a coffee ale in select Old Chicago Restaurants across the United States. The beer debuted in early February.

Left Hand De’Nile Coffee Ale is a collaboration with Allegro Coffee, and the brewery’s Ro Guenzel. The team selected Allegro’s Blue Nile Blend coffee to nuance Left Hand’s base beer, brewed with lactose.

 First, Allegro’s Blue Nile BLEND coffee was hand-selected due to its intense berry and spice notes. Then, a unique recipe was created in order to best compliment the characteristics of the coffee. The result is a burnished, copper-colored brew with a white head that is the perfect equilibrium of maple, chocolate and coffee with a medium mouthfeel and a citrus aroma from Caliente and Amarillo hops.

Left Hand De’Nile Coffee Ale is available now at Old Chicago Restaurants (locator in new window) and the the brewery’s tap room.

Style: Amber Ale (w/ Coffee, Lactose.)
Hops: Amarillo, Caliente
Malts: 2 Row, Munich, Caramunich, Wheat, Caraaroma

Availability: Draft only
Release: Early February, 2015

5.5% ABV, 57 IBUs

Yep. That’s a Rabbit Pushing A Beer Cart [VIDEO]

That is a rabbit pushing a beer cart.

YouTuber Wallace the Mad King worked for more than a year to get this rabbit to push the cart the 2 feet.

This event marks the release of an epic accomplishment. I have been collaborating for the past year with my girlfriend’s pet rabbit to create performance art and “happenings” that capture this rabbit’s capabilities and worldly passions. In a million years, neither Wallace nor I would have guessed that our creative endeavors would take this route but after such a long journey we arrive at this significant moment.
