Got a few newsy items to pass your way today on the local beer scene.
1. Marshall is releasing a new beer in 22 oz. bottles next week: Big Jamoke. Here’s what they have to say about it:
Big Jamoke is an American Robust Porter named for the B-25 that Brewmaster Eric Marshall’s grandfather flew in WW II. A blend of five malts from Munich to Chocolate provide a deep mahogany color and aroma of toffee and roasted coffee. On the palate this beer is full-bodied with hints of bittersweet chocolate and toffee…while finishing smooth and dry from the addition of earthy hops. Suggested pairings: Brie or other earthy cheese, ham, barbeque, smoked meats, and any bittersweet chocolate dessert such as espresso flavored lava cake. ABV – 6.8%. IBU – 55. Available in 22 oz bottles next week.
The beer is expected in liquor stores Dec. 23.
2. Mustang Brewing Co. has added a line of apparel and accessories that you can purchase on their Web site.
3. COOP’s latest offering — Oak Aged Imperial Stout — is available on tap at the Deep Deuce Grill now.
