The beer we are excited about right now is
We have the Aecht Schlenkerla Helles Lagerbier from Bamberg Germany (4.3%) on tap for $6 a glass. It's got a Bavarian hop bouquet, light-medium body, and rich malty character steeped in beautiful Beechwood smokiness.

On tap now, we have a very limited amount of "The Generator" from Tracy and Doug Hurst over at Metropolitan! It's a reverent interpretation of a German Dopplebock, which were used to fortify the monks during time spent fasting during Lent. Instead of making solid bread, they made this "liquid bread" in part due to the fact they believed liquid cleansed the soul. At some point, in true religious fashion, the Friars began to feel guilty, thinking that this beer was entirely too indulgent to be consumed during Lent. Sounds like drinkers remorse to me! So they sent a barrel over to the Pope in Rome for his blessing and approval. On the long horse drawn voyage from Germany to Italy, the beer inevitably got tossed, turned and cooked for several weeks. Once they presented the vile, undrinkable mutation of what it was, the Pope was of course disgusted. So disgusted in fact he decided that a beer this putrid must be good for the soul, and it would only be appropriate for the monks to produce and consume as much of their beloved brew as possible! Picture a group of monks sitting before the Pope trying to stay all monk-like after hearing that. I absolutely love this story, one of my favorites. ANYWAYS....we have a very limited amount of this domestic interpretation of this very historical style beer. So if you're fasting for Lent (boring) or just want a great beer, you'd best beat feet over to the Bluebird!

small town brewery's root beer beer. it's really just a boozed up root beer that was some how magically brewed like beer. oh... and it's 10%. yah, let that sink in. a beer that tastes exactly like root beer with only the faintest hint of alcohol that is actually 10%. and there are rumors of rumchata ice cubes being made for this.
