Sunday, May 27 @ Mousetrap: Happy 5 Years to us!

We will be tapping a great selection of beers all day on Sunday. But here are three that have never been released! Draft only, only at Mousetrap:

  • The Berm: Native fermented Belgian Style Ale inoculated with yeasts harvested from spontaneously fermenting apple cider. Complex interplay between dark soil (specifically petrichor for you taking the SATs next week), hay, tannic apple skin, and dried apricots with a subtle, balancing tartness.
  • Barrel Aged Corybantic: Wild Ale brewed with Side Projectmashed using 100% barrel aged water then barrel-aged in oak for four years with apple must.Yet to be named Calvados foedre-aged Flemish Blonde: Unabashedly funky Flemish Blonde Ale with rich notes of apple spice, brandy, and caramel teased from our 14 year-old Calvados foedre imported from French Normandy. The first ever pull from our foedre farm!
