Empyrean Beer Quest Tapping Party @ Jake's Lincoln

From Jake's Cigars & Spirits:

LINCOLN ONLY (7/3):  This Thursday will be a very special tapping party for the most recent Empyrean Beer Quest winning beer, a Chinook IPA,  brewed by Empyrean Brewing Company and the winning homebrewer team of Jason Davis and Jason McLaughlin.

For those who have never heard of Beer Quest, it is an Empyrean Brewing Company 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: "Our May Beer Quest winner was made by Lincoln home brew team of Jason Davis and Jason McLaughlin.  This IPA features a premier English malt called Marris Otter, and Chinook hop which displays a resiny grapefruit-pine aroma and flavor.  Also utilized is a Belgian ale yeast which produces a juicy sweetnes that plays off the hop's bitterness.  While straightforward and refreshing, this pale ale has a deceptive depth that's sure to please."

Jason and Jason will be hanging out too, so come down and share a pint with them!
