CBX News: Terrapin Samurai Krunkles! Ted's Cask Ale Breakfast! More Stuff Too!

[ad]

We have a great week of beery wonders ahead at The Charleston Beer Exchange!

Terrapin Samurai Krunkles Growler Feature (8/28)
Tomorrow (Tuesday 8/28) at 5pm we'll be tapping the latest Side Project beer from Terrapin Beer Co. for growler fills!  This one is called Samurai Krunkles and it is an extraordinarily unique IPA made with Ginger and Green Tea!  Here's what the brewery has to say about this beer:

"Taking the Orient and the rest of the world by storm, Krunkles returns! In this edition of the bearded IPA brewer's saga, "Samurai Krunkles," as he was once known in the Far East, pulls out all the hops from his katana's sheath to make this Asian flared brew. While traveling around the Pacific in a souped up rickshaw pulled by his trusty side kick Cato, Krunkles uncovered unique brewing ingredients such as jasmine rice, jasmine green tea and the finest ginger the Orient had to offer for this Samurai master's ale. ABV: 7.1% IBU's: 70 O.G.: 6.5 Malt: 2-Row, Best Munich, Victory, Pale Crystal Hops: Columbus, Nugget, Falconers Flight, Zythos, Sorachi Ace Other: Green Tea, Jasmine Rice, Ginger"

Ted's Butcherblock Cask Beer Breakfast (9/1)
Join us at Ted's Butcherblock the morning of Saturday September 1st starting at 10am (and going as long as the beer lasts) for a special brunch style cask ale event featuring our very own Citrus Ninja Exchange collaboration Double IPA with Westbrook Brewing Company!  We'll be serving pints of a special cask of this big beer treated with an extra dose of grapefruit peel - think of it like your morning juice but with a 9.5% ABV punch!  There will be 4 different deliciously paired plates available.  No reservations required.  Pay as you go.  For more information (including menu/pricing) please visit TedsButcherblock.com and we'll see you there!

News from Charleston Beer Exchange!

[ad]

Hello friends!

We've got another fun week of beer activities for you!

Founders Devil Dancer Rare Beer Tuesday (6/10)
As most of you know, we always have 9 beers on our growler station, but every Tuesday at 5pm we tap a rare keg for growler fills.  Tomorrow at 5pm we tap Founders Devil Dancer Triple IPA!  We're absolutely thrilled to have Founders Brewing Company back in SC and Devil Dancer is one of the most asked for beers that they make!  Coming in at 12% ABV, it's brewed once a year and is definitely one of the biggest and hoppiest imperial IPAs out there!  We have a very limited supply of this beer on draft so we will be filling 32oz growlers only tomorrow.  Please come down as close to 5pm as possible to ensure you get a fill of this treat!

Cask of Bells Two Hearted at Ted's Butcherblock (7/12)
Please come out and join us on 7/12 starting at 6pm at Ted's Butcherblock for their monthly cask event!  They'll be tapping a firkin of Bells Two Hearted IPA and will have delicious food to accompany!  Please click here for more info and we hope to see you there!

"Brett & No Mices" Bottle Signing at Westbrook Brewing (7/13)
This Friday the 13th from 4-6pm at Westbrook Brewing, the one and only Brandon "Old Time" Plyler will be on hand to sign bottles of the beer that was named after his classic mispronunciation of the word Brettanomyces!  To hear the correct pronunciation of the word (which Old Time just heard me play and disagrees with), please click here!  This will be the brewery's bottle release of this beer and we'll have bottles in the store sometime in the days to follow.  Westbrook will also tap a firkin of their Amarillo Rye Pale ale with kumquats!  This is surely not to be missed - come have your picture taken with Old Time and ask him to pronounce Brettanomyces!
