I have arranged for a private tasting party at Clem's Tap House. We have the entire place to ourselves! Clem's is nice enough to open up on their day off to host us and offer us some good beer.
For $12 you get a flight of four tastings from The Lost Abbey. The four beers we will have that night will be:
Cuvée de Tomme - 11% ABV - A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with.
Deliverance - 12.5% ABV - A blend of bourbon barrel-aged Serpent’s Stout and brandy barrel-aged Angels Share, Deliverance is the epic battle being waged between heaven and hell for the souls of mortal men… and your enjoyment in a glass.
Avant Garde - 7% ABV - Avant Garde is our commitment to brewing beers to no particular style. Some might want to label this as a beer brewed in the Biere de Garde tradition of Northern France. We would prefer to say it was brewed in the Avant Garde style of beers that will reward all those who seek the not so ordinary. Deep gold in color with hints of biscuits, caramel and fresh baked bread, this beer is sure to delight the senses and palates of consumers everywhere.
Judgment Day - 10.5% ABV - A massive beer in every sense of the word. A stronger and more contemplative version of our Lost and Found Ale. Judgment Day is the base beer for our Cuvee de Tomme. Many of the Trappist Breweries produce a version of beer which ages incredibly well for many years to come.
Example flight shown below.
In addition to the flight of beers, you get to take home a tasting glass too! We will have a Lost Abbey representative coming by to answer any questions we may have about the beer.
If you would like to purchase more flights, there are three other flight combinations available to you. If the main flight is not to your liking, you can substitute any of the other beers in any of the other flights. There will also be snacks and food for purchase if you get hungry. Additional flights are usually $9-10.
Please come down and support the group, it's events like this that make this group great and keep the group active and fun! I love tasting some great beer and mingling with members of the group. Going to bars and pubs are great, but there are only so many drunk sailors you can put up with. :-)
Please do your best to RSVP and please pass the word on. However, I would love to fill the space with many more SDCBS members and friends.
Besides, wouldn't you want to go to the same place San Diego's #1 News Anchorman goes to when he is kicking it back?
