Summit has a surprise for you! About 9 months ago we asked our friends at 2 GINGERS Irish Whiskey for some whiskey barrels. We immediately filled them with Oatmeal Stout. Our brewers conditioned the Oat Stout for eight months in the barrels. Recently, they racked a very limited amount of firkins of this beer. There will only be four firkins of this beer that will hit the Twin Cities area.
All four firkins will be made available at the four Cara Pub locations in the Twin Cities during the month of May:
On Saturday, May 11th we will be doing a pre-party for American Craft Beer Week and Kieran's Irish Pub in Minneapolis. They will feature a Summit Tap invasion and 1 of the firkins will be tapped at 2pm.
On Saturday, May 18th we will be at The Local hosting a American Craft Beer Week celebration. They will tap their firkin at 5pm that day. At The Local that day, the 2 GINGERS folks will be giving away a 2 GINGERS whiskey barrel for home brewing purposes. They will also have Summit/2 GINGERS cocktails (Extra Pale Ginger and Twin Town Old-Fashioned), food pairings and a Summit Tap Invasion.
Hope some of you can make it out! If not, we will be tapping the remaining two firkins at The Liffey and Cooper later in the month. Stay tuned for more details.
