Breaking News: First Firkin Friday at St. Elias Brewing
As I was finishing up my blog yesterday, I was wondering if St. Elias Brewing Company might be putting a new cask ale on their hand pump for this Friday, January 6th. I caught up to Zach Henry last night and he confirmed that they would be doing so. Grasshopper Pale Ale is a new beer that he's calling --true to his style-bending ways--an American Bitter. It's hopped with Galaxy hops from Australia and Zythos, a new proprietary hp blend from HopUnion. I had a small, non-cask conditioned sample, and it was very nice. So I think I stop by on my way home from work tomorrow to have a proper pint, pulled from the cask. Maybe I'll see you there.
