Here are the Drinking Horse beers to be poured on Thursday.
Silk Road Saison
This light bodied and highly carbonated saison is seasoned with peel from Meyer lemons and whole ginger root adding fresh slant on the classic farmhouse ale. Head retention ensures these flavors last until the bottom of the glass. 5% ABV IBU:34
Knight Noir CDA
A West Coast original, the Cascadian Dark Ale is both dark in color and light in body. The robust chocolate and black malts are pronounced and balanced by the abundance of NW hops. Dark as night, bitter enough to satisfy the biggest hop head, and bursting with deep, dank, and fruity hop aromas. 5.5% ABV IBU: 118
This beer was brewed in the classic Pilsner style, while trying to match the coat and strength of a Polomino Horse hence the slightly darker color and higher ABV than an American macro-brewed lager. True to style it was bittered and flavored with European hops and no rice or maize was used in this brew. 6.5% ABV IBU: 33
Ochococo Chocolate Stout
This dark stout was finished with eight pounds of raw cacao nibs (over 1 pound per barrel) post fermentation for a smooth dessert-like finish that you can drink as a meal. 5.8% ABV IBU: 40
