Bière de Fête Chicory Mild Ale Launch Party
February 11 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Friday, February 11th we are launching our newest beer in our Small Batch Series. To celebrate Mardi Gras we are introducing our Bière de Fête Chicory Mild Ale. Come join us as we tap it at 5pm! The Tacos Trona Food Truck will be here.
Here is a great description of the beer:
Mild Ale is as much a mood, as it is a beer style. Back when most beers were some shade or another of brown, and mostly distinguished by strength and price, Mild was your everyday drinker. Low to moderate in alcohol content, body and flavor impact. Ours is made in a traditional manner by taking weaker ‘runnings’ from the same mash as a stronger beer, in this case, Porter, and boiling, chilling and fermenting separately. We also added some molasses and roasted chicory root, an ingredient made famous for its use in New Orleans style coffee. The result is a deep brown ale with a medium light body, but rich flavors of dark chocolate raisins, toasted hearty bread and a surprisingly crisp finish
