Toppling Goliath Returns

Last month, I posted a story about  Adam Carlson of Gardina’s and how he’s been working to bring the beers of Toppling Goliath to Oshkosh. I mentioned that when the next shipment arrived, I’d post a note about it here. Well, it’s here.

Yesterday afternoon, Gardina’s took delivery on two of the Iowa brewery’s coveted beers: Golden Nugget IPA and  Pseudo Sue Pale Ale.

Golden Nugget hasn’t been available here before. This IPA is a study in hops. It delivers a gush of tropical-fruit aromatics and a complex palate of hop flavors that range from citrus to floral to evergreen. Golden Nugget gets insanely high marks on both RateBeer and BeerAdvocate and is a must for any hop head.

Pseudo Sue I’ve mentioned here before. It’s a cult beer that’s actually worthy of the hype it has generated. This ale is a showcase for citra hop flavors that are framed by gently sweet malt. It’s a phenomenal beer. Don’t take my word for it, take a look at THIS.

Folks, these won’t last long, so get to ‘em. They’re available in 22 oz. bombers in the packaged beer section at Gardina’s.

If you go, you might also want to check in at the bar. The Gardina’s tap list is looking good. Here’s what’s currently pouring:
