Tap List 2/14/07 Happy St. Valentine's Day

Social Lubricator Dopplebock (7.2% abv)
A malty, caramel colored German lager with a medium body and a crisp lager finish. Subtle roast and caramel malt aroma that remind you of fresh baked bread or toffee. Loosen up and get out of the cold with a tall glass of this special treat.

Dopplegänger I.P.A. (7.8 % abv)
A German IPA. We think the first of its kind. What would it be like if a German brewer made an American style I.P.A.? We used 100% German Pilsner malt. German grown Perle and Magnum hops for the bittering. Amarillo and Centennial for the aggressive dry hop addition. We used our house ale yeast but fermented it cool like a lager. A light colored I.P.A. with assertive floral and citrus aroma. Clean but bitter I.P.A. finish. First experiment of 2007.

Next I.P.A. will be on Feb 27th.

Man Skirt Wee Heavy
(8.3% abv)
This year's winter warmer is a hearty scotch ale. Deep mahogany, malty, and a little peaty smoke thrown in too. Medium carameled body, with very little hop presence, and a warming alcohol finish, it's big but very enjoyable.

Replicale Saison
(6.3% abv)[Almost Gone]
This year's installment of the Illinois Craft Brewer's Guild's Replicale project is a belgian-style farmhouse saison. Ours ended up very fruity and spicy from the saison yeast that we let go wild. Look for a pale to yellow beer that has a complex, tart, and refreshing flavor to it.
