Tapping Belgian Dubbel on Mon. 4/29

Bill is tapping his first production beer! Who's Bill you ask? Bill is Flossmoor's Assistant Brewer and he's brewing up some excellent specialty beers. Bill started as an avid homebrewer in 2006 which became a regular habit of his. Bill started hanging around Flossmoor on a regular basis which lead him into a job as Sales Rep with them. While doing Sales for the brewery Bill attended Siebel and got his Degree in brewing in early 2012 with the hope of moving into a brewing position. That dream became a reality when then Head Brewer, Nick Barron, moved on.  This allowed for a shift in positions and Bill became Flossmoor's newest Assistant Brewer. This brings us to now and the official release of Bill's first production beer, a Belgian Dubbel. This Belgian Dubbel is your typical Belgian style with rich complex flavors.  You might also taste the caramel notes and a hint of  raisin with the dry finish.  Bill wanted to makes this Belgian a bit more sessionable with an ABV of 7.5%.  This might be a bit high for some for a session beer but with the more dry finish it leaves you wanting another because of the lack cloying sweetness to it.  The release is set for Monday April 29 at 5pm for Mug Club Members and 6pm for the general public.  This will be a brewpub only release.  Look for more of Bill's brews in the future; possibly a 2nd barrel aged version of this..
