Boulevard Tap Takeover with Neil Witte @ Jake's Lincoln (4/10)

From Jake's Cigars & Spirits:

Wednesday, April 10th at 5:00 pm

LINCOLN JAKE'S: **BOULEVARD TAP TAKEOVER W/ NEIL WITTE** Jake's Lincoln will be hosting a fantastic Tap Takeover hosted by Boulevard's own Neil Witte. Neil started as a brewer at Boulevard back in 1997, and now holds the title of Field Quality Manager, as well as Mater Cicerone (one of 6 in the world). Be sure to get down for what is sure to be an amazing night with one of the great beer minds.

Tank 7: "Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that’s just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard it’s fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were developing variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a flavorful surge of fruity aromatics and hoppy, grapefruit notes (Amarillo hops), this complex, straw-colored ale finishes long, dry and spicy."

Coffee Ale: "Neighbors for nearly twenty years, Boulevard Brewing Company and The Roasterie share a passion for making extraordinary beverages. In Coffee Ale, our two celebrated brewing traditions come together in a long-awaited collaboration. Ethiopian Sidamo from Africa’s Great Rift Valley has been carefully blended with rye, oats, and malted barley, and spiced with Perle and Styrian Golding hops. The delightfully fragrant beer presents a glowing, tawny-amber hue. The clean, crisp acidity of the air-roasted coffee mingles with malt on the palate, lingering faintly in a subtly sweet finish."

Grainstorm Black Rye IPA: "Just when you thought it was safe to come out of the root cellar, along comes Grainstorm, a big, wet wallop to the senses. Dark clouds gather on the horizon of your glass. A high-pressure system of pungent hops collides with a stationary front of barley, oats, wheat, and rye. The forecast: a monsoon of flavor with surges of roasty malt, microbursts of fruity notes, and a chance of golfball-sized hail. The extended outlook calls for unseasonably pleasant enjoyment."

5:00 pm Jake's Lincoln (14th & P St.)

Is it a combination of beer and coffee served together through Beer Tap or what is it?
