Speakeasy Ales & Lagers Butchertown Hoedown Anniversary Bash Tomorrow
It's the tail end of the dog days which means there's still time to squeeze in one more rocking summer party. The folks at Speakeasy Ales & Lagers just happen to be throwing a sudsy soiree this Saturday to mark 14 years of craft brewing and to launch a new addition to their lineup: Butchertown Black Ale.
This black IPA-ish brew is the first release from Speakeasy’s newly christened Bootlegger Limited Series. It will be a two month release as will all subsequent offerings. Butchertown Black Ale is a light bodied but dark brew, paired with an aggressive hop bill of Amarillo, Chinook and Cascade. While the beer has a touch of roast character, black malt gives the beer color without adding the body or flavors familiar to a porter or stout. Scoreboard: 8.2% ABV and 60 IBUs.
