Empyrean Beer Quest "SMaSH Ale" Tapping Party @ Jake's Lincoln

From Jake's Cigars & Spirits:

LINCOLN JAKE'S ONLY: This Friday we have a very special tapping party for Empyrean Brewing Company's Beer Quest winning Winter Ale, originally brewed by the Lincoln homebrew team of Tim Oehlerking and Jacob Miller.  The theme of the contest was SMaSH beers (Single Malt and Single Hop), with the winning recipe using just Munich Malt, Polaris hops, water and yeast.

Beer Quest is a quarterly event which starts with 21 homebrewers going head to head in a private competition judged by certified beer judges, with the top 10 beers moving on to the Beer Quest public event. Brewers in this final round serve their beer and speak with the public about what processes and techniques they used to make their beer unique. The public's job is to try each one of the beers and rank the brewers in order of favorite. The winner of the public tasting is crowned the winning brewer, and is awarded the opportunity to brew the winning recipe on Empyrean's big brewery system.

Brewery description: "Brewed with a single hop and a single malt for an aroma of fresh berries and flavor of toasted malt and mild hop bitterness with a refreshing hint of mint (from the hops).  An enjoyable session ale."

Tim and Jacob will be down to enjoy their winning beer with everyone, so come down and congratulate them over a pint or two!

Friday, October 30th at 5:00 pm. Jake's Lincoln (14th & P St.).
