Clipper City Brewing's distributor in South Carolina is really putting me to work in January. He's arranged a Cask Ale Blitz: 4 firkins - for 3 restaurants - in 3 days!
- Tuesday, January 29th, it's a cask of Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale (a triple-hopped I.P.A.) at Grapevine in Fort Mill (in the Baxter Center.)
- Wednesday, January 30th, it's 2 casks (!) at the Flying Saucer in Columbia: Loose Cannon and Holy Sheet Uber Abbey Ale. (This will be the 2008 release of Clipper City's spring seasonal, Holy Sheet Uber Abbey Ale — a dubbel-style ale, but at 9% alcohol by volume.) Click here for a notice on BeerAdvocate.com.
- And, Thursday, January 31st, it's a cask of Small Craft Warning Uber Pils (a very hoppy maibock — cask lager is properly referred to as kellerbier) at Barleys in Greenville. This will be a return to where Clipper City Brewing had its very first South Carolina cask event last year. BeerAdvocate.com post here.
