What? With three beer engines, EVERY day is Cask Day at Max's Taphouse, you would think.
But starting Thursday Dec. 3rd, Max's is holding Cask Nights in addition to its usual Trivia Nights. Similar to the Tuesday Beer Socials, beginning at 6 p.m. there will be a featured beer (or more than one, or even a firkin now and then), with a discount on the price for that night only. The starting line-up for the 3rd:
BrewDog Harcore IPA 9.0% ABV. Scottish Imperial IPA, 150 IBU's
Williams Bros. 80 Shilling 4.2% ABV. Scottish Ale
Lagunitas Brown Shugga 9.8% ABV. Strong Ale Hybrid
Max's has now purchased several of its own firkins, and is dispatching them to various breweries through the distributors, in order to assure supply. This is hardly new--many local beer bars now have their own firkins, as it's often the only way to get cask ale. (If you see a fire-engine-red one floating around, it's from Metropolitan Coffeehouse.)
