Beer Event Watch: BBC (Shelbyville Road) Beer Tasting at Keg Liquors, October 29.

Submitted by Todd Antz, owner of Keg Liquors (Keeping Kentuckiana "Beer'd" Since 1976) at 617 E. Lewis & Clark Parkway in Clarksville. I'm holding out for Kiwi fruit in the Randall, but we'll have to wait and see.

Join us on Thursday, October 29th from 5 - 8 PM as our friends from BBC Shelbyville Road stop in for the next in line of our "locals only" beer tastings. Jerry and Sam will be in with a great lineup of their beers, and an appearance by a Randall the Enamel Animal, that we will use as a surprise infuser of one of their beers. Will it be hops? Will it be coffee? Or maybe another surprise ingredient will be used.

Here is the lineup:

- Rye 75 - Rye 75 is a tribute to our friends along Interstate 75. The malty sweetness extracted from Canadian pale ale and French caramel malt is balanced by the spicy flavor of German rye malt which composes 30% of the grist bill. In addition to its big malt profile Rye 75 has an assertive dose of American Cascade and Columbus hops lending a citrusy and floral flavor and aroma. This beer has been dry hopped in the keg with more Cascade hops for even greater hop aroma.

- Professor Gesser's Mind Numbing Ale - dry hopped with Simcoe and Cascade, from the otherwise mild-mannered Kansan and self-described social experiment, Jerry Gnagy.

- Luna de Miel Raspberry Mead 0 Historically a meade was made to celebrate the union of a couple and given to them for celebration of their marriage. Truly defined as a braggot, BBC Luna De Miel is a fermented honey ale flavored with a blend of raspberries and blackberries. Luna De Miel is a refreshing change from standard BBC offerings. Luna De Miel is effervescent, fruity, and light, yet warming from its moderate strength.

- Heine Brothers Coffee Stout - This oatmeal stout is brewed with English roasted barley and caramunich malt which gives a roasty and slightly sweet malt flavor. The addition of flaked oats lends creaminess and body to this pitch black ale. The coffee will be added to the hot wort (unfermented beer) after boiling. This will extract good flavor without adding bitterness or burnt flavors. Freshly brewed coffee will also be added to the beer after fermentation is completed and the beer is ready to be served. This will give the freshest coffee flavor and aroma.

and a couple of surprise beers as well.

This is a free event and open to the public (21 and older!)
