Bangerz Only!: Q2

Q2

It's a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real! On the first Tuesday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most rare, special, or just downright delicious beers we can find. We like to call them Bangerz! Every Banger will be tapped at open, but when it's gone it's gone. We will have no regrets. Will you?

Taxman - Q2 - Wine BA Biere de Miel - 6% ABV

This series takes advantage of local grain, hops, & ingredients to put a decidedly Midwestern twist on a classic saison or farmhouse ale. Each release in an evolution of previous batches and as such is never the same. The series features wild yeast so these beers will evolve over time developing additional complexity with aging.

Black Acre - Noxious Beast - 11.2% - American Imperial Rye IPA

A bigger, bolder imperial version of Black Acre's Saucy Intruder Rye IPA. Saucy Intruder is a perfect balance of malty rye spiciness and strong citrus hop falvors. With the base beer already being that fantastic, how can a bigger version not be even better?
