For those of you with your panties in a bunch about too much Surly coverage as of late, fear not, here’s some information bout another brewery! (And seriously, if you have feedback, good or bad, you can always e-mail me directly… ryanATmnbeer.com.)
Many thanks to Dennis for the skinny on this one.
Wednesday: Groveland Tap, St. Paul – Summit will be sharing a firkin of Winter Ale, dry-hopped with fuggles.
Thursday: The Happy Gnome, St. Paul – a firkin of Winter Ale spiced with nutmeg and allspice.
Friday: Grumpy’s NE – a firkin of Great Northern Porter with an addition of Belgian chocolate.
This sounds like some firkin fun!
Uhhh, what’s a fuggle? Until further notice, I’m going to assume the Winter ale is dry hopped with some sort of furby-like creature.
Fuggle hops – Main English hop developed late 19th century. Considered by some to be less refined than Goldings, others prefer its juicier, more woody character.(Alpha acid 4–5.5% / Beta acid 2–3%)

This week will give my liver a good run before the holidays are upon us.
wake up and smell the fuggles!
Thanks Scott, perhaps I should have said “Fuggles hops,” lest someone starts thinking that Summit is putting something weird like tribbles.
I just called the Groveland and it looks like the firkins will be tapped at six p.m. I was hoping they’d have them going by lunch since I have the day off 🙂
Shhh. I won’t be there until 8:00 or so…
