A launch party hosted by Andolini’s Pizzeria, 1552 E 15th, in Tulsa, is set for 8 p.m. this Thursday. According to a news release issued by Marshall, the event will feature a special pizza conceived by Andolini’s owner Mike Bausch that will include Big Jamoke Porter as an ingredient in the crust. Further, a special cask of bourbon and vanilla infused Big Jamoke Porter will be available, in addition to regular Big Jamoke on tap.
Here’s some additional information on Big Jamoke from Marshall:
The 2012 Big Jamoke Porter marks the fourth release of the popular winter seasonal by Marshall Brewing. Kegs began leaving the brewery Nov. 8 and have made their way around Oklahoma to a limited number of locations. Six packs will be available throughout Marshall’s distribution network in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri beginning Nov. 15.
“Demand for seasonal beers continues to be a strong area of growth for Marshall,” said Wes Alexander, Marshall Brewing’s director of sales. “Craft beer fans ask us to make Big Jamoke available year round.”
Big Jamoke Porter will be available from Nov. 15 through Feb. 28.
“We have no plans to make Big Jamoke year round at present, but as we continue to grow our business, we consider input from our fans,” Alexander said.
Big Jamoke is an American Robust Porter named for the B-25 that Brewmaster Eric Marshall’s grandfather flew in World War 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.
