a whole week i've been stumbling around like a zombie
it's just not fair!
anyway, i'm mostly human again
and very much looking forward to drinking some beer!
in the meantime, dead frog has a new beer out:
Aldergrove, BC — Dead Frog Brewery is pleased to announce the release of its new One-Eyed Jack Imperial Pilsner. Unlike regular Pilsners, One-Eyed Jack ups the ante with rich maltiness, soft bitterness, citrus, and spiciness. Crisp, complex, and well-rounded, you'll want to go all in with this action card.
Steve Black, Dead Frog's head brewer, said, "With the popularity of imperial beers, I liked the idea of coming up with a Pilsner version. Given how people usually drink Pilsners, there's an irony in that you'll only have one or two and then you're satisfied."
This 8% ABV, 30 IBU lager is brewed exclusively with Pilsner malt and Sterling hops using a German Pilsner yeast. The result is a unique hybrid of an herbal, spicy Bohemian lager and a citrusy American pale ale, brewed to the strength of a Bockbier.
Ingredients: water, malted barley, hops, yeast
Suggested serving temperature: 8-12°C
Recommended glass: Pilsner glass, Pokal
Suggested food pairing: aged Gouda, soft pretzel, Bratwurst, chicken andouille gumbo with corn bread, Thai green curry
Dead Frog's unpasteurized and preservative-free, limited release One-Eyed Jack Imperial Pilsner is available in GLSs and LRSs in 650ml bottles with a suggested retail price of $5.69. It can be ordered from the LDB using SKU #683490. It is exclusively available on draught at Central City Brewing's new pub in downtown Vancouver at 871 Beatty Street.
