Brews News—Belgian Tea Party at Common Table, Explosions in Your Mouth at Meddlesome Moth


This just in from Jeff Fryman at The Common Table:

I just wanted to let you know of a beer event we will holding next Saturday, May 14, from noon to 5:00. We are calling it: The Belgian Tea Party. We’ll be
pouring 12 Belgian/Belgian-style beers, serving three types of mussels with frites, and giving away Belgian Beer Glasses All Day during the event. There will be live Jazz on the patio. And at some point, we will be dumping out a keg of Stella. Because to us, Belgium has so much more beer love to offer but Stella is always getting in
the way
It will be fun.

Meanwhile, Matt Quenette over at Meddlesome Moth chimes in with their happenings:

On May 4 (tonight), we’ll be tapping Great Divide Grand Cru—a strong dark Belgian style—kinda of a catch all style that allow brewers to make something strong. Dark fruit flavors, Belgian candi sugar, abv 11+. Great Divide has been making great casks so far.C asks are always so tricky with the carbonation and taste. Most brewers aren’t good at it and just put the most full flavor beer they produce in it to mask the inperfections. Soooo, I am really looking forward this.

Then, on May 11, Donn from Dogfish Head is sending us a case each of Raison d’Extra (which is not made anymore), Fort, Immort Ale, Red and White, and Burton Baton. All have been aged since 2007. We will do a flight or individual bottle sales. Uber rare. Donn will be on hand to answer all things DFH.

We are have recently released some bottles of rare beer from our cellar. Immort Ale 2010, Choc Barrel Aged Quad, Deschutes Abyss 2010, Brooklyn Black Ops 2010, Avery Mephistophleles’ 2007, Avery Samaels 08,09,10, Allagash Curieux 2010. Just some fun stuff.

Finally……….Adam Avery is coming to The Moth June 13th. It is a Monday and we gonna sell the MF’er out. It will be the Avery Experience with over ten beers. I spoke to the rep the other day and he says the cellar is open to us. It will be a truly phenomenal sensory explosion in our mouths.
