Tonight @ 8 pm, Proof; Terrapin Cask Ale and pint glass giveaway.
What's in the cask, you may ask, why, none other than Big Hoppy Monster. This brew is a red ale/American amber/whatever other label you want to give it and Beeradvocate gives it an A-. It's part of their monster beer tour which includes 3 others, so my assumption is that Tallahassee was just bestowed with whatever the brewery chose for the region or something. It's a hefty boy at 8.75%, however, so be careful tonight.
Now, Georgia's come into it's own with a few great breweries around, but I can't really say that I've enjoyed the Terrapin brews that I've had. I'm more than willing to give this guy a try, especially when the bar's in walking distance from the crib. Not to mention it's become near impossible to steal a glass from that joint, so, the glass give away is a major plus.
The week of the 21st (yay, my birthday) will be the same deal but with Stone Brewery with a cask of Ruination IPA.
Also coming up at the end of the month is the 4th annual Tallahassee Brewfest at the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum. October 30th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm; tickets are $29.99, VIP $99 (you basically pay triple the price to get in an hour early and 'sample' beers only for VIP members and get a cheesy t-shirt). Tickets include unlimited beer tasting and food is available, but only light weights need that. After party at Proof.
