Bangerz Only: Fudge & Sickle

Bangerz Only

It's a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real! On the first Thursday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most exclusive, 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?

This month’s Banger is:

Lagunitas Brewing Co. {Petaluma, CA}: Fudge and Sickle - Oak Aged Imperial Stout w/ Belgian Chocolate and Vanilla / 10.1% ABV

We took our Dark, Rich and Scary Imperial Stout and added some smoked malts, toasted oak, and straight up chocolate fudge to the brew. The Result? A decadent, desertified, devil of a stout, with a roasty toasty depth... It's like sippin' down a pulverized fudge brownie. Cheers!

July 6, 2018 to July 27, 2018 - 6PM
