Beer Geek Tuesdays @ Cypress!

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.

Beer and  conversation start at 7 pm  on Tuesday 2/16!
