Looks like Flying Saucer has a new schitck - Tap Nite. They tap a new keg at 7pm each Thursday, and the selections are special ("rare") brews.
Tonight, Flying Saucer taps a keg of New Holland's trippel:
Mysterious, alluring and seductive, yet tantalizingly elusive; these are the storied characteristics of the Black Tulip.
Golden in color, Black Tulip Trippel is a delightful beer with a slightly sweet body. Its ester-laden character reveals an enigmatic dance between Belgian ale yeast and Michigan beet sugar, conjuring hints of bananas and rock candy. Its inviting flavor is complemented by a pleasing dry finish.
19.6° Plato, Alc. 8.8% by Vol.
Their calendar already identifies kegs for each Thursday through the end of July, including beer from Arcadia, Left Hand, New Holland, and Schlafly.
And while I'm talking about Flying Saucer, the first two weeks in June celebrate the Missourian arrival of beer from two fantastic breweries - Founders and Moylan's. Each has its own glass night (6/3 and 6/10 respectively) and will provide me with two more reasons to spend more money on beer.
