Pratt St. Ale House Beer Debut Tuesday (oh, yeah, and at Max's...)

This Groundhog's Day--Tuesday--at Pratt Street Ale House, according to the brewer Stephen Jones:

On Tuesday @ 6pm we will launch our latest seasonal beer, The Bishop’s Indulgence, at The Cask Ale Social at the Pratt Street Ale House. As well as having the beer on tap and on cask (aged on a little American Oak) we will have a glass ended firkin of Best Bitter dry hopped with Maryland Chinook on gravity pour in the lounge so you can see how yeast settles in the cask. The Bishop’s Indulgence will be available in 10 oz snifters for $3 and our other cask beers will be priced at $3/pint. We’ll also have an informal discussion of cask ale brewing and handling so if you have any questions about cask ale come along, have a beer and we’ll do our best to answer them. You may have read in the previous posts about the Bishop’s Indulgence that it is an 8% a.b.v. stout brewed with cocoa nibs and vanilla beans.
 If chocolate oaked imperial stout isn't your thing, then here's Max's beer social:

This Tuesday we are featuring a great new brewery to the US. Bierbrouwerij Grand Cafe Emelisse, from Kamperland, Netherlands.  We will be serving all three on draft:

Emelisse Imperial Stout 11.0%abv. Imperial Russian Stout
Emelisse Winterbier 2009 8.5abv. Belgian Style Strong Ale
Emelisse Double IPA 9.0%abv. Double IPA
Sounds like yet another one of those days where I just have to clone myself or hire a doppleganger.......
