For starters Airon is recommending the special of five 5-ounce tasters of anything on their tap wall for a mere $17, a true beer bargain considering the heavy hitters you will score. The Moth’s blue ribbon beer is currently the Jester King’s Drink’in the Sun Belt available as a special for $3. Drink’in is very hoppy, flavorful session ale brewed with equal portions of malted barley and malted wheat, and heavily dry-hopped with citrusy, American Amarillo hops and is a collaboration of Jester and the very well known Danish gypsy brewer, Mikkeller.
Airon says that we should enjoy the Jester beer on this beautiful day,. So you might want to grab a patio seat and relax.
Other beer news, The Common Table is tap happy today cracking the seals on eleven Stone Brewing Company taps today starting at 11AM, a few making their Texas debut according to Corey Pond. The beer to look out for would be the Double Bastard which Stone calls a “lacerative muther of an ale.” I will personally be stopping in for a few tastes later today before the Mavericks game.
