Cypress Street’s Beer Geek Tuesday 3/23

It’s Tuesday again, one of 7 great nights for drinking great beer.   Tonight at Cypress Street, Terrapin Brewing (Athens, Ga) is the featured brewer.  I’ve already mentioned the cask – Terrapin Hopsecutioner w/ whiskey chips.  The Capt’n will be making an appearance too.    Here’s your rundown.

CASK – Hopsecutioner. American IPA, 7.2% ABV.  Newest full time offering by Terrapin, and only the 2nd distributed IPA in the Atlanta market.  The brewers at Terrapin soaked American oak chips in Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon, then added those chips to the cask.  Woodford Reserve is very bold, and presents very well on the palette.  Looking forward to this one.

Capt’n Krunkles – IPA, 7.5% ABV.  Newest Side Project release by Terrapin – #10.  Unofficially a black IPA, Krunkles is a hoppy IPA with dark roasty malts.  Hops include – Warrior, Columbus, Nugget, Centennial, Simcoe.  Dry Hopped w/ Ahtanum.  Malts – 2 Row Pale, Dark Munich, Crystal 24, DH Carafa III.  I think you’re in for a pleasant surprise.

Rye Squared – Imperial IPA, 8.5% ABV.  Part of Terrapin’s Monster Beer Tour, limited seasonal release.  Lots of strong aromatic & bittering hops. Hops include – Magnum, Fuggle, East Kent, Golding, Cascade, Amarillo (Dry Hop.)  Released in February.  Balanced, clean, cellars well.

All beers tap tonight at 7pm! Come hear Cypress Street brag about their People’s Choice Cask win at Sweetwater’s Brew Your Cask Off on Saturday! Congratulations again!
