So long $1 beers hello $5 pitchers at Serious Pizza

Image

So today was the official switch of Serious Pizza’s Monday Special. Up until today you could rock out on Monday’s while enjoying a huge Pizza and $1 drafts.(rotating selection) However at 4:45 today the $1 drafts faded away bringing $5 pitchers! So I was thinking about this and while it was nice just to have a quick $1 brew, I could always count on getting right back in line grabbing a quick second, or third. The 60 oz pitchers are the answer to waiting in line. Thought I would let you know about the new Monday Special. Cheers!

Lakewood Inaugural Tapping with Goodfriends

Image

 

 

Join Lakewood Brewing Company at Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House for their first ever keg tapping Saturday August 4th starting at 4pm.They will have American Rye Wheat “Rock Ryder” and their Belgian IPA “Hop Trapp”.

 Here is some more information about the beers being tapped:

 

Beer Name: Rock Ryder

 

Beer Style: American Rye Wheat

 

ABV: 5.2 %

 

IBU: 23

 

SRM: 5

 

This is LBC’s take on an American Rye/Wheat. It pours with a fluffy white head and has a cloudy straw color. The citrus aroma and the addition of rye malt gives it a complexity and subtle pepperiness. It’s soft on the palate and finishes slightly dry with just a hint of lemon zest in the background.

 

Beer Name: Hop Trapp

 

Beer Style: Belgian-style IPA

 

ABV: 6.4%

 

IBU: 68

 

SRM: 14

 

This IPA has more in common with its Trappist cousins than with the face shredding IPA’s of the west coast. While it still has a healthy bitter backbone and floral hop notes, this IPA is decidedly malty and complex with the addition of Lakewood’s Belgian yeast.

Deep Ellum Brewing Wealth & Taste Launch Party

Aside

Brewsday Tuesday on 7/31 is gonna be a special one. For the first time since the brewery launch party back in November, the boys from Deep Ellum Brewing are coming over to The Common Table to debut an awesome new flavor – Wealth & Taste. Come early to beat the crowds… Tapped at 5:00 sharp. Here is a little more info about Wealth & Taste.

Wealth & Taste
9.5% ABV | 25 IBUs
Barrel Aged Belgian Golden Strong Ale w/ Muscat Grape Juice.

It is a strong, golden Belgian-style Ale brewed with Muscat grape juice, Grapefruit peel, rose hips and chamomile flowers and partially aged in Missouri White Oak barrels that spent the last seven to eight years housing Chardonnay in Napa.  A siren and a seducer of significant potency, an opportunistic beverage overflowing with opulence now, but content to lay in waiting for just the devilishly decadent moment.

Style: Barrel Aged Belgian-style Golden Strong Ale

Hops: Summit and/or Bravo, Palisade, Liberty

Malts: Pilsner, White Wheat, Dark Munich

Yeast: Belgian blend

Other: Muscat Grape Juice
