Alcohol, Date Idea, Food, Party
Cask ale is a traditional British style of serving beer; beer is drawn out of the keg by hand and served at a slightly different carbonation level and temperature than normal draft beer to bring out new flavors and aromas.
This week, we're pouring:
Beer Name: Wasted Life
Cask Addition: Hull Melon and Mandarina Bavaria hops
Color: a hazy deep gold, bolstered by the slightest touch of burnished copper; it's a color that evokes memories of the most exquisite cream sodas.
Cheese Pairing: Humboldt Fog or Délice de Bourgogne.
Food Pairing: Jamón serrano, extra sharp cheddar, and a big hunk of crusty bread. Good night.
Music Pairing (Jimbo's Choice): "Bruce Lee" by Indian Handcrafts.
Music Pairing (Jared's Choice): "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls or "The Brews" by NOFX.
Best Occasion to Drink: As your first beer on Thursday evening, when the week is almost over and you just want to wind down. Then - hopefully - throughout the rest of the weekend, spurred by fond recollections of how good it tasted on Thursday.
Brewer's Notes: There's not much new to say about IPAs since there are five thousand or so other commercial examples out there, but it is a style that's a personal favorite of ours - we tend to prefer hops with the big, fruity, juicy flavors that are all the rage with the young'uns these days. But since this is our mainstay year-round IPA (don't worry, hopheads, we'll have plenty more variations on the style once we're rolling) we've tried to balance that out a bit (for everyday drinkin' we tend to prefer something that doesn't necessarily smell like a fruit salad with perfume on it) with some malty goodness and a dab or two of some slightly-more-nuanced hop varieties (don't get me wrong, we're all about intense flavor. But you wouldn't want an all-syrup Squishee every day, would you?). Needless to say, this is one you'll miss in between pours.
BONE UP BREWING COMPANY //
A Small Brewery Making Beer For Your Mouth in Scenic Everett, Massachusetts.
Bone Up Brewing is the Boston area's smallest brewery! Husband-and-wife brewing duo Jared and Liz Kiraly crank out fresh new beer every week from their 3-barrel nano brewery and taproom. Inspired by old-school Belgian farmhouse brewing while celebrating American styles, their ales combine the heart and soul from each of these beloved beer cultures. Four year round beers are always available, but the gears of Bone Up are always turning, so you can expect an ever-changing array of one offs, seasonal releases, and experimental batches.
Located in the heart of Everett's budding Fermentation District, the taproom is open Wednesday through Sunday and features full pours, flights, and growlers from ten rotating tap lines. In addition to a weekly cask, the taproom hosts games and an ongoing series of food trucks and pop ups. Outside of the occasional tasting, the best place to find Bone Up is right at the source!
