Very excited for the 2nd Battle Of the Cask event at Smog City this Saturday, April 5th at the taproom. I missed the first one due to it being held on the weekend between Christmas and New Years. That event was a huge success so the folks at Smog City needed to adjust the format of this one. They are featuring 5 (five!) casks of Amarilla Gorilla and to ensure that everyone gets an opportunity to taste and vote on their favorite, only taster flights will be available. Make sure you get there early!
From Smog City:
We’re hosting our second friendly competition amongst the staff of Smog City Brewing and we need you to help us determine who will triumph.
This Saturday we’ll be serving 5 Amarilla Gorilla Casks, all treated with a wide array of ingredients from fruit purees to tea and wine juice, this will be a Real Ale event designed with you Hop Heads and craft beer adventure seekers in mind!
*Event is from 12-6pm, Taproom will stay open until 8pm
*Taster flights only from 12-4pm to allow fair voting opportunities
*Pints and flights served from 4 til they kick
*At 6pm, we’ll announce the raffle winners (you!) and the winner of The Battle of the Cask (one of us!)
You’ll get one raffle ticket and one voting ticket for every flight you purchase.
Additional IPA on Tap: Two of our proposed casks popped their bungs in the weeks leading up to the competition and after much discussion, we decided that the recipes were so delicious we had to pour them. Although both of these recipes are disqualified from the voting, they will be pouring from our taps during the competition for your enjoyment. You can purchase these throughout the competition, just ask your beertender.
