Tonight’s Rare Brew: Barrel-Aged Vol. XIV from Real Ale Brewing Co.

Posted by    |    February 24th, 2011 at 4:50 am

Tonight’s rare brew at The Meddlesome Moth is especially rare. In fact, there are only ten kegs of its kind in Texas! Brought to you by Real Ale Brewing Co. from Blanco, Texas, Vol.XIV is a golden Belgium ale that has been barrel-aged.

If you’re thinking you’ve seen this before, you’re right. In August, The Moth shared the original version of Real Ale’s 14th Anniversary Ale. This time the beer has been re-released as part of the Mysterium Verum series, an assortment of ales that are all “experimental.” This version of the ale has been aged for six months in an American oak barrel.

Even the illustrious Captain Keith hasn’t had the chance to taste this brew yet, so come in at 5 pm and be one of the first!

Tonight’s Rare Brew: Sierra Nevada Hoptimum

Tonight's Rare Brew: Hoptimum by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is known for their hops so it’s only appropriate that they named tonight’s rare brew Hoptimum. A big, bold IPA, this ale has been “aggressively hopped, dry-hopped, and torpedoed with exclusive new hop varieties for ultra-intense flavors and aromas.” Coming in at 10.4% ABV, Captain Keith suggests that you’ll be able to taste grapefruit rinds, pine, citrus and a bit of tropical fruit.

Hop on in to The Meddlesome Moth tonight to try this limited edition brew!
