Gardina’s. Cask beer. Tonight. 6 p.m.
I should just leave it there. Of course, you know I won’t. Here’s the full run down...
Danny McMahon, brewmaster at DCBC, will be on hand to talk about the beer and whatever else you care to quiz him about (you might want to ask him about brewing farmhouse ales, it seems to be turning into his thing).
In addition to the cask, there will also be a mini-tap takeover with three other DCBC beers on tap: Biere de Siegle Rye Farmhouse Ale, Little Sister Witbier, and Big Sister Witbier with Hibiscus. Gardina’s will offer a flight of all four DCBC beers for $8.
Meanwhile, the chefs at Gardina’s will prepare their nightly dinner specials to pair with the four beers. You could make an evening of it.
That’s enough, right? Nope. Being an obsessive it occurs to me that with this being the 20th entry in Gardina's Beer Bar Series, now might be an appropriate time to look back on the tappings that have preceded tonights event. It’s like the beer geek version of trainspotting. This ought to jog a few memories...
