Jake's Friday- Lincoln: Goose Island Matilda Lambicus / Omaha: Lips of Faith Release Party

From Jake's Cigars & Spirits:

Friday (9/30) tapping parties for the Lincoln & Omaha Jake's

LINCOLN JAKE'S: We were totally surprised to get our hands on Goose Island's small batch Matilda Lambicus!  The Chicago brewery used Brettanomyces Lambicus to further ferment their already delicious golden Belgian-style ale.

Brewery description: "Modeled after beer brewed by Trappist monks, Matilda Lambicus is a dark golden colored Belgian style pale ale brewed using two yeast strains. Unfiltered and veiled, an appealing haze is expected in a deep copper hue. After primary fermentation with a Belgian ale yeast strain, a secondary fermentation with Brettanomyces Lambicus is carried out. Like its sister beer Matilda, Matilda Lambicus has baking spice aromas with a touch of funk expected from Brettanomyces. These are then complemented by fruity aromas, pleasant acidity, and a slightly tart body that enhance the complexity of an already complex beer."

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

OMAHA JAKE'S: It's time for another awesome round of New Belgium beer from their Lips of Faith series.

Yuzu Imperial Berliner Weisse: "Yuzu is a strange fruit- citrusy and bold. Those three words: strange, citrus and bold are the perfect beginnings for a great beer. So, our brewers paired yuzu with the sourness of a Berlinerweiss to create this beerlicious Yuzu Berlinerweiss. Brewed with pale malt and wheat this Berlinerwiess was acidified with Lactobacillus for a light, dry mouthfeel and tart refreshment. Hazy and straw-colored, the yuzu fruit brings a tropical charm to a traditional beer.

Coconut Curry Hefeweizen: "Coconut Curry Hefeweizen has been pouring down the history of American Home Brewing for many years, from the legendary Charlie Papazian to the 2010 National Homebrewer, Remi Bonnart. The latter helped New Belgium brew this hazy, straw-colored gem to life. The aroma is bold and big with coconut and curry tones and a hint of banana from the hefe yeast. With a vast spice list of cinnamon, coriander, fenugreek, ginger, kaffir lime, and cayenne pepper this beer carries a bit of heat but the alcohol soothes the finish. Coconut Curry Hefe will leave an inquisitive smile on the drinker’s mug."

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