Our friends at Cavalier Distributing supply some of the most delicious craft beer around town. You may have seen them at the monthly beer tasting at Trolley Stop, where they are often helping pour beer and kindly sharing their knowledge about ales, porters, stouts and the newest trends in craft brewing.
So when they shared with us that they will have their very cool draft truck in the new beer garden at DAI’s Oktoberfest, Friday, Sept. 25th – Sunday, Spet. 27th, we got very excited! Cavalier is even making it possible for a couple of our readers to attend the Friday night preview party. Check our Most Metro Facebook page for a chance to share your way to a pair of tickets for the VIP preview.
Here’s what will be on tap:
Revolution Oktoberfest -A classic German-style Oktoberfest beer that goes down smooth with a pleasant, toasty malt flavor. Hallertauer Mittelfruh hops give the beer a crisp, balanced bitterness and a spicy, earthy aroma
Reissdorf Kolsch – a minty, hop aroma; sweet, vanilla like, malt flavors; and a crisp, dry, cedar finish. medium in color, slightly hoppy, has an ABV of 4.8%
Stone Go To IPA– an abundance of lupulin-borne bitterness into a “session” IPA delivering all the fruity, piney character of a much bigger IPA.
Wyders Reposado – Pear cider infused with smooth subtle oak laden tequila notes. Refreshing pear cider crafted with some inspiration from south of the border.
Fat Head’s Bumbleberry – a light, refreshing ale with a nice blueberry aroma, crackery malt flavors, a hint of sweetness and a refreshing blueberry finish.
Madtree Pyschopathy -subtle malt backbone combats the bitterness and intensity of floral, grassy and citrus hop flavors.
Madtree PumpCAN – Really nice big pumpkin aroma, nice and hearty, with a balanced amount of spice. Spice does not overwhelm the pumpkin, it’s still allowed to shine here.
Schofferhoffer Grapefruit – unique combination of sparkling smooth Schofferhofer Hefeweizen with grapefruit flavoring. A refreshing well-rounded taste with tangy character and hints of sweetness.
Weihenstephan Original – yellow bright lager, a flavorful beer with a mild hoppy note and a pleasant fresh spicy taste.
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale – a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Aged for at least 6 weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentucky’s finest distilleries.
Breckenridge Vanilla Porter – An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure, real vanilla bean.
And if that’s not enough to tempt you, the following brews will be available in bottles:
Weihenstephan Hefe, Weihenstephan Oktoberfest, Old Speckled Hen, Trooper Beer
Stone IPA, Arrogant Bastard, Zombie Killer, Carlsberg, Brew Dog Dogma, Triple Karmeliet
I’ll be hoisting a mug of brew at Oktoberfest and hope to see you there. Prost!
