Funkwerks Friday Tap Takeover w/ Gordon Schuck @ Jake's Lincoln!

From Jake's Cigars & Spirits:

JAKE'S LINCOLN ONLY (Friday 7/26): Jake's is very excited to feature a most bodacious tap takeover hosted by Funkwerks Co-Founder/Owner Gordon Schuck.  Known for their affinity of refreshing Saison-style Farmhouse Ales, the Ft. Collins brewery was the winner of the 2012 Great American Beer Festival's (GABF) Small Brewing Company and Small Brewing Company Brewer of the Year award.

Tap Takeover Beers

Provincial: "Inspired by the sessionable German Berliner Weisse, we followed tradition and allowed the wort to mature overnight with lactobacillus. The next day it was boiled and transferred to the fermentor where we added a Belgian wheat yeast strain famous for fruity flavors and a dry finish. The result is a highly carbonated and refreshingly tart summer beer with a citrusy pineapple aroma. These aromas carry through in to the flavor leading to a dry but tart finish. This unfiltered ale is best consumed fresh- it will not continue to sour with age and is not recommended for cellaring."

Saison: "This tawny, orange-hued beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas are of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper. Flavors cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper before finishing with a dry, lingering bitterness that awaits another sip. Serve at 50 degrees in a tulip glass.

Our flagship Saison was awarded a silver medal in 2011 and a gold medal in 2012 at the Great American Beer Festival for the French- and Belgian-Style Saison category."

Tropic King: "Bursting with aromas of passion fruit, mango, and peach, our Imperial Saison is brewed using New Zealand Rakau hops. Combined with notes of pepper and ginger produced by our house yeast strain, Tropic King has a unique flavor that has gained it a loyal following. Serve at 50 degrees in a tulip glass.

Brave the curse."

A Lincoln beer event not to miss, Gordon will be able to answer questions over a glass of their fine creations.  Get down early!  There will be some sweet Funkwerks swag for the early birds!

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