We’ll keep this short and sweet. Most of you know about Toronado’s weekly “Take the Pint Night,” wherein they host a brewery (typically from out of town) and patrons can buy a beer and take home a pint glass from the featured brewery. Generally we don’t make a big deal out of these events, typically just posting something quick on Twitter and calling it good.
Tonight (7/29, 6PM), Toronado hosts Fremont Brewing. And sure, you’re thinking, “What’s the big deal? Fremont is only a mile or so away.” Well we’re here to tell you the big deal….2013 KDS IS GOING TO BE ON TAP!!!! That’s right, that big, beautiful, bourbon barrel-aged beast will be available tonight! Leave those bottles you’ve been cellaring for the past 2 years where they are and head on over to Toronado to enjoy a pint of this world-class beer.
Kentucky Dark Star is an Imperial Oatmeal Stout aged in 15-yearold Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. 2013’s release is a blend of 24, 12 and 6-month Bourbon-Barrel aged Dark Star that recalls plush, dark velvet and goes all the way up to 11%. Roasted and chocolate malts compliment the smooth oats to bring you a stout delight wrapped in a gentle embrace of Bourbon Barrel-aged warmth. A touch of sweetness dances in balance with the hops to finish with a wave and then she’s gone.
Also on tap will be:
The Brother was the first beer we developed in our Imperial Series and is inspired by our desire to thank Brothers everywhere. Without our Brothers, we would have taken the blame for everything as children, wouldn’t have known the inside of an ambulance, and never understood the true fear a good ghost story can cause a young child. This Brother is appropriately big, intimidating, and unbalanced with unrestrained quantities of hops for a head slap of beery ferociousness. Go ahead, Hook a Brother Up…Because Brothers Matter!
