Cypress Pint & Plate is located in Midtown Atlanta on West Peachtree Street. Cypress is a great, inviting neighborhood bar nestled downtown with a penchant for great beer. That’s exactly where my story starts.
Tuesdays are Beer Geek Tuesdays at Cypress Pint & Plate. Beer Geek/Manager Wes Andersen designs these beer geeky evenings with a special line up of beers by the glass. Here is tomorrow’s lineup (2/16) –
Stone Russian Imperial Stout 2009 — Imperial Stout, 10.5% ABV. First released July 2000. This Imperial uses Warrior hops to boost the strong flavors of chocolate & coffee. Released early summer annually.
Red Brick 15th Anniversary — Barrel Aged Brown, 9% ABV. Brown ale aged 13 months in Pappy Van Winkle Barrels. Fantastic notes of vanilla and oak, with some caramel malt complexities. One time release.
Schneider Aventinus — Weizenbock. (aka wheat dopplebock.) Various vintages will be available. Each release is about 8% ABV. Bottle fermented. Top fermenting yeast used. First created 1907.
Unibroue — Based out of Chambly, Quebec. Beers are bottle refermented with a process similar to champagne. Popular beers include – Blanche De Chambly, La Fin Du Monde, Maudite. Various offerings by Unibroue featured.
De Proef/Bell’s Van Twee — Belgian Dark, 7.5% ABV. Collaboration between De Proef & Bell’s Brewery. Dubbel blended with Stout, featuring sour cherries from MI. Bottle fermented w/ beet sugar.
Schneider/Brooklyn Hopfen-Weiss — Weizenbock, 8.2% ABV. Collaboration between Schneider and Brooklyn Brewing. Wheat, light hop, and light alcohol noticeable.
Terrapin —Side Project # 4 — Dos Cocas — American Porter, 5.8%. ABV. This beer was 4th in the side project series and is now retired. Chocolate (cocoa) overlays into this porter for a nice finish. I’m interested in how it aged. Well over a year old by now.
