The Blind Tiger Brewery + Restaurant announces three beautiful new Craft Beers ready and on tap as of Tuesday, January 21. These beauts join the other 20-some beers on tap at the brewery, but they won’t last long. Each are single one-off batched brews, meaning that they’ll be on tap at The Blind Tiger until Topeka drinks ’em up.
6.5% ABV, 11 IBUs, Contains Lactose
A golden colored beer with all the attributes of a Café Mocha. The sweet body is formed from cacao, Tahitian vanilla beans from locally owned Moburt’s Spice Shop and milk sugar. Next, brewmaster John Dean and his team roast coffee beans from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Like it’s muse, the Café Mocha beer is one to be savored; whipped cream optional.
Passion Fruit Sour
6.5% ABV, 4 IBUs
A kettle-soured beer with passion fruit puree, the Passion Fruit Sour joins Blind Tiger’s sour beer series, which has grown over the past two years. This lover, however, is much smoother then previous.
Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
10% ABV, 26 IBUs
She was a black charred beauty with big dark staves, and bands all her own hugging way up high, way up firm and high. I knew this Makers Mark Bourbon Whiskey barrel needed filled. It would take a full year workin’ on mysteries without any clues. Workin’ on some infusion. I awoke last night to the sound of thunder, is it ready I sat and wondered? You be the judge.
