Friday February 13 - Special Keg Tapping: Metropolitan Generator Doppelbock refermented with cherry purée
As we continue our Metropolitan Brewing month, we'll be tapping into a special variant of their Doppelbock, kegged especially for us by the Metro Brew Crew -- Cherry Generator! Perfect for the Valentines Day weekend, this brew is malty, sweet, and has a big red cherry kick.
(The only other time we've seen Cherry Generator was on cask at last year's Night of the Living Ales fest in Chicago, so get it while it lasts.)
"Bocks have provided nutrition to fasting German monks during Lent for centuries. We don’t fast, we aren’t monks, and honestly, we don’t even know exactly when Lent occurs. But we are pleased to honor this tradition with Generator, our winter seasonal brew." (refermented with real cherries!)
