This week we were joined by the lovely Claus Hagelman of 16 Mile Brewery (Georgetown) and Tap House (Newark). Holly, who is the manager of 16 Mile's Tap House in Newark also joined us to promote their Monthly Beer Event. Grab tickets to this month's event, Sunday February 16th - Five infused versions of the same beer, paired with tantalizing tapas. Tickets are $40/piece and available at the taphouse in Newark.
The non-pregnant, and non-allergic "Thirsty Friends" tried 3 beers this week. The Oyster Stout, Hot Fudge Sundae Stout, and a Russian Imperial Stout, Peter's Deptford Addiction.
Rick and Gene were big fans of the Oyster Stout, and described it as smokey and malty. However, Laurie couldn't get past the brine associated with the Oyster Stout. She was not a fan.
Hot Fudge Sundae stout has chocolate, cherries and vanilla bean, with a nice bitter baker's chocolate flavor. It smelled like cake and I hear it tasted delicious.
Peter's Deptford Addiction came in at over 9%. It was a favorite amongst the Thirsty Crew and would go beautifully with a nice cheese platter.
MOST of the beers this week were really fabulous...MOST. However, there was one that was an experiment gone wrong. 16 Mile took their Tiller Brown Ale and adding a lot of crazy hot peppers. The beer is only available to try on tap at the Georgetown Brewery. Check out Gene's reaction to "Killer Tiller".
