SixRow_logoDoes it feel like you have bugs crawling on your skin?  Do you have chills and yet you can’t stop sweating? Gotta get that hop fix?   Then you may want to head on over to  Six Row Brewing Company tonight, Thursday, March 7th starting at 5PM, to get up on a very special cask event.

Tonight, they’ll be serving up a special cask of their of an ESB dry-hopped with UK Fuggle. This is Six Row’s most recent seasonal selection and the blend of a spicy ESB with the earthy Fuggle hops sounds like a perfect combination.

Dr. Simcoe says that the only cure for hop withdrawal is a shot of humulus lupulus. So, head on over to Six Row tonight and get your medicine.

SixRow_logoWoooooooo, beer!  Seriously, how can you not be excited about beer?  I mean, you’re visiting a website devoted to beer.  C’mon!

Sorry, got a little too revved up.  Anyway, back to beer.  Six Row Brewing Company will be holding a special cask event next Thursday, February 3th starting at 6PM.

They’ll be serving up a cask of their of their ESB which they’ve dry-hopped with Fuggle. Here’s a description of the beer:

“Six Row’s ESB is a smooth and creamy traditional English ale with great malty characteristics and hop aroma; bitterness isn’t the defining characteristic of this ale! Belonging to the Pale Ale group of beers, the Extra Special Bitter, or ESB, has a much more complex malt and hop character and a higher ABV than others in the group.

We used traditional English pale ale malt combined with a substantial amount of both Fuggle and Goldings hops to make this beer well balanced and easy to drink. One of the favorites of the brewers.” (ABV: 4.47%, Bitterness Units: 33.7 IBUs, Color: 8.1, Original Gravity: 11.63 degrees Plato)

The excitement is palpable.  The only visual demonstration that would accurately express how excited I am is if we had a cask of beer crashing through the wall, Kool-Aid Man style.

OK, I’ll calm down now.
