UPDATED: Opening night lineup for Lupulin Land 2005 on Friday, October 7.

Here's the list of probable starters for Lupulin Land, 2005, which begins Friday, Oct. 7 at Rich O's Public House/Sportstime Pizza/New Albanian Brewing Company.

CASK-CONDITIONED ALES -- MOST, BUT NOT ALL, FROM LOUISVILLE AREA BREWERIES.

With the aid of a cask breather, we'll try to keep the hand pump working throughout the first two weeks of Lupulin Land 2005.

1. (CHANGE) Friday, Oct. 7: NABC Elector Ale.

NABC Hoptimus Double IPA was not cask-conditioned -- sorry for the confusion! Instead, it will be pouring in regular keg form.

When Elector is gone: Bell’s Two Hearted Ale (firkin).

Friday, Oct. 14: Bluegrass Brewing Company (St. Matthews) Professor Gesser’s Mind Numbing Ale

Before the 14th or after, depending on readiness and sales: BBC Beer Company American Pale Ale (APA)
Browning’s Brewery (single varietal) ESB

INTRODUCING A VERY SPECIAL GUEST:
RANDALL THE ENAMEL ANIMAL.

“Randall, a Dogfish head invention, is an organoleptic hop transducer module –- a three-foot-long, cylinder-filter packed with a half a pound of whole leaf hops that we affix to the beer line leaving a keg.”

We have purchased a Randall from Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, and will equip him for action beginning on October 7.

The Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA is the first Randall pour (Friday night, October 7).
