Backyard Ale House Tapping Bell’s Hopslam Saturday 2/25


From BYAH:

We are extremely thankful to get our hands one of the most coveted beers out there:  Bell's Hop Slam Ale!  In the past, we have carried a very limited supply of bottled Hop Slam, but this is the 1st time we will have it on Tap.  To celebrate, we are going to host a keg ta...pping party on Saturday, February 25th at 7:00. 

If you are unfamiliar with Hop Slam,  (Shame on you.. it's Beer Advocates #22 ranked Beer ... in the world!) here is the description:
"Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell's Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell's repertoire. Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style."  Bell's Brewery

The line up of Bell's Brews on Draft will be:
Bell's Two Hearted Ale
Bell's Cherry Stout
Bell's Winter White Ale
Bell's Hop Slam Ale 

Hop Slam will be limited to 1 chalice per person and is first come first serve.
If you have have enjoyed a Hop Slam or any of the great Bell's brews in the past, we will see you on the 25th.  If you are just hearing about Bell's for the first time, you don't know what your missing!

Billy, Pat, Tony, & Eric
