Green Dragon Brew Crew – Oubliette Black CDA

What: The Brew Crew and guest brewer Dylan VanDetta present, Oubliette Black CDA.
When: Wednesday, August 26th @ 5pm.
Specs: ABV: 8.1%, IBU: 85

This week’s release from the Brew Crew and guest brewer Dylan VanDetta is an award-winning Cascadian Dark Ale.

How dark is it? Dylan reached back thousands of years into medieval history to name his creation. An oubliette is a type of dungeon where the only way out was through the roof. It dates back to 14th century France and roughly translates as the “forgotten place.” These were dark places indeed.

We assure that you despite a recipe that includes six types of hops, a flavorful palate of chocolate and coffee, plus a citrusy aroma, there’s nothing dark or sinister about Oubliette Black CDA (except for the color.) All it takes is one taste and you’ll discover that this one homebrew you’ll never want to forget.

Green Dragon Brew Crew – Deep Six Cream Ale

What: The Green Dragon Brew Crew and guest brewer Rob Blouch present Deep Six Cream Ale
When: Wednesday August 12th @ 5pm
Specs: ABV 5.8%, IBU 19.8

Green Dragon Brew CrewFresh from his victory at the 2015 Slurp & Burp Open, Rob Blouch comes to the Green Dragon Wednesday, August 12th with his “Best In Show” winning Deep Six Cream Ale.

Brewed in collaboration with the Green Dragon Brew Crew, Deep Six Cream Ale uses the traditional recipe of a 6-row base malt and corn adjuncts with German Noble and Czech hops.

Cream Ales are an all-American style, created by ale brewers in the mid-1800s as a response to the growing popularity of golden lagers. Compared to today’s mass-produced lagers, they are generally more bitter, slightly more alcoholic and often lightly fruity.

They are sometimes known as “lawnmower beers” because they’re a great way to refresh after spending the afternoon mowing the lawn. Join us at the Green Dragon this Wednesday for a fine American tradition. Lawnmowers sold separately.
