Beer Event: Iron Hill & Dogfish Head Bocce and Beer
This Thursday's wacky bocce and beers event is shaping up to be an event not worth missing. Check out the announced reserve beers to be served. The festivities get underway around 6pm and will likely last for a while into the evening. Following are descriptions lifted from the Iron Hill newsletter. Iron Hill Reserve Beers: The Cannibal: A light bodied Belgian Golden Strong Ale with hints of tropical fruit. Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2005 GABF and a Silver Medal at the 2006 World Beer Cup Berlinerweisse: German style wheat beer, with a refreshing tart, acidic, and lemony citric fruit characteristic. The addition of woodruff or raspberry syrup can balance out the sourness. Dogfish Head Reserve Beers: Chateau Jiahu: re-creation of an ancient beer made with rice, Wildflower honey, Muscat grapes, barley malt, hawthorn fruit, and Chrysanthemum flowers Punkin Ale: full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar Red & White: A 12% abv Belgian-style Wit beer. It was brewed with the rinds of over 60 tangelos and freshly ground coriander. The beer is be aged in Pinot Noir barrels (not available in bottles).
