Eagle Rock Cask – Mugwort Brown Ale

MugwortCask for the People – JULY 12th

On Saturday, July 6th, the Board Beer Geek team headed out to meet with our friends at local LA beer hotspot, Eagle Rock Brewery.  The mission was to create/collaborate on a cask.  Brewer and Cellarman, Andrew Bakofsky had a special set of ingredients ready to go.

The beer: A hoppy American brown ale (currently unreleased) fully of rich notes of toasted brown bread and an assertive hop finish.

The special ingredients: Ancient gruit herb, Mugwort and traditional anise.  Mugwort is a very earthy herb reminiscent of chamomile with a floral a roam and woodiness.  The addition of hammered anise seeds rounds out the flavor of the brown ale creating something super unique and tasty.  Remember, you’ll only get it here folks.

Andrew adding YeastAndrew showed us how Eagle Rock Brewery creates some of its casks.  An addition of sugar and fresh yeast are added prior to the beer, which will cause a small fermentation inside the cask and add natural carbonation.  The special ingredients are added and then finally the beer.  The cask is then sealed with a plastic shive (bung) and the downward force of a hammer (accompanied by Andrew’s Hurculean strength).

Making a cask is an exciting opportunity to collaborate and experiment with beer flavorings.  Eagle Rock Brewery is no stranger to this UK form of serving beer and frequently has casks available at Story Tavern in Burbank.  After filling the cask with the special ingredients, the team was able to do a traditional barrel/cask roll, which ensures that the  If you’re interested in learning more about their casks be sure to check out their tap room or Story Tavern.

Eagle Rock Brewery will also have on tap their Witbier, Manifesto, perfect for the summer heat.  Los Angeles Ale Works will be debuting it’s new LA Kumquat infused French/Belgian Saison in both cask and draft form.  The cask has an extra addition of Kumquats and Filipino Calamansi (mini lemons) to add tartness.

 

Story Tavern will have many other beer options available including their popular gluten free option, Craft Cider.  With so many options, everyone is sure to find something they like.

Beer Geeks and Table Top Game Geeks Rejoice

This is the first ever event in the area that’ll celebrate the communal geekdom between beer geeks and board game geeks.  There is already a large crossover and we’re evidence of that.  Board Beer Geek Tavern is a collaborative event put on by local beer bloggers (Bierkast.com, LA-Beer-Blog.com, and BeerofTomorrow.com) along with our illustrious hosts at Story Tavern.  The event will showcase some great craft beer, a cast of Real Ale from a local LA brewery, live music, and some great food options from Story Tavern.

We’ll be featuring some awesome games which are great for beginners and advanced board gamers.  Each game is completable near the 60 minute mark, which means you’ll be able to get a few great games in during the event and hopefully meet some new friends.  Don’t worry if you’ve never played these games, we’ll have Game Runners helping to kick off each game and answer questions.

If you want to bring your own games, please feel free.  If you want to get a jump start on rules for the games we’ll be playing, here they are.
