  1. Lots of great events on their website. I can’t wait. The rare and extreme beer tasting at Kitty Hoynes on Wednesday includes some amazing selections including Atlantic IPA from Brew Dog and 2008 Raison D’ Extra at 21% alcohol from our good friends at Dogfish!

  2. presents an extreme beer tasting at Kitty Hoynes in Armory Square hosted by resident beer guru Spencer Noakes.
    Showcase of our event is the rarer than rare Atlantic IPA from Brew
    Dog. The extreme on the alcohol side at 20%+ will be cellared ’08
    Raison D’ Extra from Dogfishead, Extreme is not always about hops and we will have 20th anniversary Fraoch Heather aged in whiskey barels brewed with no hops. We will have the first Upstate NY release of Bashah (black as night, hoppy as sin) the Stone/BrewDDog
    collaboration high-lighting the community spirit of our industry. We
    will also have cellared ’07 Mephistopheles from Avery to showcase how black
    and dark a beer can be. We will have something mouth-puckeringly sour
    - I’m not sure what yet. More to come. Cost is $20 for the tasting.
