Great Divide Beers on Tap!!

Starting Weds July 18th, we have special beers on tap from Great Divide Brewing Co! http://greatdivide.com/

CLAYMORE SCOTCH ALE: Named for a medieval Scottish sword, Claymore Scotch Ale is Great Divide’s tribute to the legendary “Wee Heavy” beers of Scotland. This malty, deep-ruby beauty features lots of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile, and a subtle warming character. 7.7%

BELGIAN YETI: A delicious new blend of brewing traditions – all the malt-driven roastiness of Great Divide’s Yeti Imperial Stout with characteristic spice and fruit notes imparted by their special Belgian yeast strain. Belgian Style Yeti is a one-of-a-kind beer as mysterious as the mythical creature himself. Impossible? See for yourself; you’ll be a believer, too. 9.5%

HADES: A Belgian-Style golden ale brewed with a rare Belgian yeast strain that gives a complex spicy flavor and aroma. Noticeable hops and medium malt character make it a very well balanced, crisp ale. 7.8%

RUMBLE IPA: An American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus. Very inspiring. 7.1%

TITAN IPA: A big, aggressively hopped India Pale Ale brewed for hop disciples. It starts out with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishes with a nice rich, malty sweetness that is balanced with crisp hop bitterness. 7.1%

HERCULES DOUBLE IPA: Not for the faint of heart. It is, however, fit for the gods. HERCULES delivers a huge amount of hops from start to finish. Its hefty backbone of nutty, malty sweetness balances its aggressive hop profile. 10%

SAMURAI: This is an easy drinking, unfiltered ale that changes the status quo for unfiltered beers. The addition of rice gives Samurai a slightly fruity, crisp, refreshing and clean taste. This is definitely not your everyday unfiltered beer. 5.5%

New this week in Mudville9 is the Rogue "Oregasmic" which is an American pale ale from Oregon (http://www.rogue.com/)

Even the yeast is from Oregon! The beer pours a hazy red orange with spicy hop notes and caramel malt aromas. Pairs perfect with ribs - so come on in for a great meal!

Jonas Bronck "Pelham Bay" IPA

Right now, Mudville has the Jonas Bronck "Pelham Bay" IPA on tap. This beer is brewed right here in the Bronx by a small, dedicated brew team. 

Jonas Bronck was a brewer in the early 1600's and owned 500 acres of land in the Bronx (when it was still called New Netherlands). The Jonas Bronck brewers name all of their beers after Bronx areas and landmarks… explaining the meaning behind "Pelham Bay." This beer is an American IPA with better balance and less bitterness than a typical American IPA, making it much easier to enjoy and more like an English IPA.

These brewers are incredibly small and local which makes this offering special and pretty hard to find outside of New York.  Stop in this week or weekend to enjoy a glass!
