SingleCut Beersmiths Present Jenny Van West (19-33 37th Street @ 9 PM)
singlecutbeer Yesterday was a blessed day: lager tank tasting. Traditional lagering has been in our DNA since Day 1- well actually day -75 when we squeezed in 4 horizontal lagering tanks through the tiny front loading dock. Long, slow, cold fermentation, done with a sideways tank to let the yeast spread out and be happy and healthy. Crisp, dry, clean, crushable. ______________________________________ Upcoming Projects we're LOVING: LIFTON Helles with Green Tea, 4.8% (pictured)- the lightest and softest of OG lagers, feather light with a gentle bready malt character and spicy light hopping courtesy of a blend of OG and modern Bavarian buds. This guy will sit on some organic whole leaf green tea for a few days at the end of the cold conditioning - playing up those whispers of floral aroma that come through from the hopping. Expect to see this in a couple weeks. ALL IN ALL IS ALL Maibock, 5.5%- in the spirit of spring and the end of all our long slumbers, we brewed this extremely traditional Maibock back in February, and it's a precious 3wks away from finishing. Crisp, light, and dry, with a rich character of complex bready malt, a touch of clean caramel, and a long lasting bright and clean finish. We can't wait for BBQs and fire pits with this immaculate lager. Due out in... May, duh! ________________________________________ Don't forget, both SC Tap Room QNS and SC North Store are open normal hours on Easter Sunday. #DrinkLoud #BeerYouCanSeeThrough
The SingleCut Beersmiths has a reputation for some unique brews, a few to note being the slightly creamy and sweet Chocolate Milk Stout, the tart Kim Hibiscus Sour Lager and the new Plaintop Pilsner made of the finest European malt. This weekend, aside from delicious beers, there’ll also be live music from ME-based Jenny Van West. The fusion of rock, swing, country, and folk is West’s signature, delivering her songs in a memorable and rich way. The venue is inviting beer fanatics to enjoy the free live show with no cover price!
