Chappy’s Tap Room and Grille will open at 11:30am this Wed, Dec 12th to celebrate the tapping of a keg of Stone Vertical Epic 12.12.12, the last one in the series at 12:12pm. They will be serving lunch and offering happy hour until 6pm.
According to a news release, “Stone 12.12.12 Vertical Epic Ale was brewed with a Belgian yeast strain and features cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, rosehips, sweet orange peel, and a dash of clove. Spices and banana notes are prominently featured in the taste. As it warms, notes of caramel, dark toffee and molasses assert themselves. Overall, the dark beer provides a pleasant juxtaposition of roasted malts, hops and spice layers.”
