Cypress Street’s Beer Geek Lineup – 3/9

There are a lot of great things coming up for Cypress Street’s Beer Geek Tuesdays. I can’t wait to start talking about them.  Tomorrow – Dogfish Head Brewery is the featured brewery – with food to compliment.

Cypress Street just got a new chef in the kitchen, and beer manager Wes Anderson wants to show him off.  Tomorrow night will feature 3 offerings from Dogfish Head with food pairings.   The beers are –

Midas Touch – Spice Beer, 9% ABV.  Recipe is based off the oldest known fermented beverage in the world.  It’s a Turkish recipe found on drinking vessels  from the 2700 year old tomb of King Midas.  A mixture of what could be a wine & a mead.  Grapes, honey, juice and malt are present.  Offered year round.

Pangea – Belgian Strong Pale, 7%.  Pangea is brewed with ingredients from every continent. Crystallized ginger from Australia, Basmati rice from Asia, Muscavado sugar from Africa, Quinoa from South America, North American Maize, even water from Antarctica.  Released in the fall in 750 ml bottles.

Burton Baton – Double IPA, 10% ABV.  Burton is a blend of an English Strong Ale aged in Oak, and DFH’s 90 Minute IPA.  Oakey vanilla is prevalent, with the northwestern citrus hops found in 90 Min.  Limited release.

Each of these beers will have a food pairing – $25 dollars for all three. Not a bad deal honestly, as Pangea retails for $10+ dollars a bottle alone.

Starts at 7pm!
