Jake's Friday- Lincoln: Great Divide Oatmeal Yeti / Omaha: Ommegang Iron Throne

From Jake's Cigars & Spirits:

Friday (7/5) tapping parties for the Lincoln & Omaha Jake's

LINCOLN JAKE'S: Great Divide Brewing Company's Yeti series has produced some of our favorite Imperial Stouts over the years.  Their newest version is Oatmeal Yeti, a silky and decadent treat that was brewed using oat malt and raisins.  A true breakfast beer indeed!

Brewery description: "Much like its legendary predecessors, this Yeti is big, bold and dark. The addition of rolled oats softens Yeti’s notoriously roasty backbone and the small amount of raisins added in the brew kettle create a unique dark fruit character. Just as admired as those that came before it, Oatmeal Yeti Imperial Stout is a softer beast"

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

OMAHA JAKE'S: Brewery Ommegang and HBO have teamed up to make a series of beers in support of the hit show Game of Thrones.  The first in this series is Iron Throne, a Blonde Ale brewed with the addition of grains of paradise and lemon peel.

It's good enough for the Stark's and Lannister's.  Get your taste of the throne!

Brewery description: "Iron Throne is a blonde ale at 6.5% ABV and brewed with a robust amount of pils, honey malt, aroma malts and red wheat. Gentle hopping includes Styrian Golding and Hallertau Spalter Select, appropriately noble hops. Spiced with grains of paradise and lemon peel. Hue is a slightly hazy golden amber. Head is full and fluffy. Finish is crisp, backed by a touch of spice and hops. Aroma is a bit grassy with a hint of lemon fruitiness from the lemon peel. Taste is lightly malty, rounded out by honey malt sweetness."

5:00 Jake's Omaha (62nd & Maple)
