Tuesday Tap Takeovers – Ballast Point Brewing Full steam ahead!!!  Just two weeks after a super fun Stone Brewing Tuesday Tap Takeover, we have locked in Ballast Point Brewing in for our next event Tuesday February 12th, 2013 AD.  These guys have been throwing together some rad beer and things are just getting better and better.  Here is the lineup we have for the evening:

Wahoo Wheat (4%) - Our Belgian Wit Beer brewed with Coriander and Orange Peel. Well balanced with nice citrus notes. Longfin Lager (4.6%) - A light bodied helles style lager with subtle hop flavors a clean finish. The all day drinker. Sextant Bourbon BA (5.2%) - We aged our oatmeal stout in bourbon barrels to give it some boozy warmth and oak flavors in addition to its smooth chocolate and roasted character. Steamboat (6%) - A deceptively light bodied steam beer allows the dark malts to shine with subtle toffee and chocolate flavors. Sculpin IPA (7%) - A dry light bodied west coast IPA that has been generously dry hopped. Tropical hoppy flavors and aromas define this beer. Habanero Sculpin (7%) - Our flagship IPA infused with Habanero Peppers that really give this brew a great kick. Tongue Buckler (10%) - A bold viscous american strong ale that clocks in at over 100 IBUs. Not for the faint of heart. Victory at Sea (10%) - A velvety imperial porter made with cold brewed coffee and madagascar vanilla beans. The ultimate desert beer. Dorado (10%) - A big double IPA with citrus hop flavors and a sweet caramel malt body. Barmy (12%) - A caramelized honey ale made with organic apricot puree. Sweet fruity notes with a slightly tart finish make this strong beer too easy to drink.

Eric has come up with some delicious grub for the night:

Cali Cheese Steak - Carne Asada marinated in Long Fin Lager, sauteed peppers and onions with melted Pepper Jack.  Served with Lucky Habanero Salsa.  Pairing : Habanero Sculpin The Press Reuben - Toasted Marble Rye from OC Baking Co. with shaved pastrami, kraut, gruyere, and housemade Russian dressing.  Pairing : Sculpin IPA From Scratch Shephards Pie - Simmered in Sextant Bourbon Barrel Aged.  Pairing : Tongue Buckler

As usual, there should be some goodies for those who come early to our little shin dig!

Smoochies, Len & Jerry
