Off Color and Allagash tap Ghost Lemons!
The Moonlighter, 3204 N Armitage Ave

We'll be hanging out in the neighborhood, tapping Ghost Lemons, Yuzu Fierce, and Allagash's Nancy. (Facebook event)

Nancy is a tart red ale that brings local cherries together with Brettanomyces yeast. The beer is brewed onto a blend of Maine-grown Balaton and Montmorrency cherries. It ferments for over a year in a stainless steel tank with the cherries and Brettanomyces. Copper in color, Nancy’s flavor is a medley of citrus, cherry, and pie spice, with a hint of graham cracker. The finish is dry and refreshingly tart.

Thursday, July 19, 5:30-8pm
