Jake's Friday- Lincoln: Weyerbacher Eighteen / Omaha: Green Flash Citra Session

From Jake's Cigars & Spirits:

Friday (7/19) tapping parties for the Lincoln & Omaha Jake's

LINCOLN JAKE'S: Every year Pennsylvania's Weyerbacher Brewing Company celebrates their anniversary with another delicious beer.  For Eighteen they went for a big and bold dark German-style wheat beer called a Weizenbock.

Brewery description: "The 8th installment in the Weyerbacher Anniversary series. Eighteen is a 11.1% ABV Weizenbock with complex bready wheat, dark fruit and chocolate flavors balanced perfectly spicy phenols and banana esters."

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

OMAHA JAKE'S: So session IPA's pretty much rule.  San Diego's Green Flash Brewing Company knows plenty about making great hoppy beer, and their Citra Session is made to keep you out of trouble while getting your lupulin fix.

Brewery description: "When new and unique ingredients become available we often feel inspired to make a new brew highlighting that ingredient, here we are highlighting a newer hop variety called Citra.  This pale gold Session IPA is brewed with high quality Marris Otter and Vienna Malt but the flavor is dominated by the Citra hop.  100% Citra hop is used to bitter and flavor the brew with additional Citra in the dry hop for aroma intensity.  Citrus notes of lemon, orange and grapefruit are the main traits of the hop with light floral and lemon grass undertones.  The abv at only 4.5% makes this hop laden brew an easily sessionable quaffer.  4.5% ABV, 45 IBU"

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