Details


On Thursday, February 20, HopCat EL will host Perrin Brewing Co. out of Comstock Park with a multi-tap feature. On draft will be:

Black Ale – American Black Ale – 5.9%
It’s low in gravity, clean, crisp, and flavor-filled; giving off a bread-like aroma. This beer proves that deep colors do not signify rich potency. Our Black Ale is deceptively light on the tongue. A wise man once said: "You under-estimate the power of the Dark Side. Give yourself to the Dark Side!"
Malted Milk Ball Imperial Porter – Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Porter – 11.3%
This sophisticated ale was made with cocoa nibs, malted milk and French Polynesian vanilla beans and aged for nine months in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels.
**Malted Milk Ball recently won a silver medal at the 2013 Wood & Barrel Aged Festival

Hopwood – Oak Aged Imperial IPA – 9.0%
Aging in American White Oak barrels imparts a wine-like flavor and aroma, complimented by the floral and fruity character of the hops used. Hints of oak, coconut, fresh melon, and passion fruit throughout.

Stoutwood – Oak Aged Imperial Stout – 9.0%
The American White Oak barrels this stout is aged in brings out notes of fruit and coconut, complimenting the smooth dark malt characteristics of this beer.

Barrel Aged Sustana-tor – Bourbon Barrel Aged Doppelbock – 9.8%
This bourbon barrel aged version of the Sustena-tor brings hints of vanilla, bourbon, and dark fruit to the lush, full body of this dark lager.

Wood Aged 1885 Kona – Bourbon Barrel Aged Coffee Porter – 5.7%
A blend of Bourbon Barrel Aged Kona Brown with their Woodford Bourbon Barrel Aged 1885 Porter creates a beer that is light in alcohol, yet has a gracious amount of oak.

Barrel Aged Rye Wine – Bourbon Barrel Rye Wine – 9.8%
Aged in bourbon barrels, this strong ale has a quaint, alcoholic warmth, low carbonation, fruit undertones and is brewed with nine different malts including caramel rye malt; an extremely unique malt that lends itself to the exquisite malt profile of this ale.
Barrel Aged Black Goat – Bourbon Barrel Black Lager – 9.3%
The old Black Lager with double the ingrediants, put in stainless for two weeks and laid down in bourbon barrels. Six months later the magic happened and the goat was birthed. Black Goat is a double black lager; sure to please the harshest of critics. Caution: this billy kicks!

Kingdom of Tonga – American Vanilla Porter – 7.0%
Vanilla beans from- you guessed it- Kingdom of Tonga are used in this dryer variety of porter, highlighted by chocolate, coffee, and a subtle caramel touch.

Rye of the Liger – American Rye Pale Ale – 5.2%
Centennial and Citra hops are merged to create the hybrid Citrennial hop, creating a complex and citrusy pale ale with hints of peppery rye.

Kona Brown – American Coffee Brown Ale – 5.5%
Infused with a generous dose of freshly roasted coffee beans from Ferris Coffee, lending Kona Brown to smell like your favorite diner on a Sunday morning. Kona is smooth and dry, neatly hopped, has caramel appeal and a dash of sweetness

IPA – American IPA – 7.2%
A serendipitous balance of North American and European specialty malts, paired with a lavish selection of West Coast hops; giving an intense, one - two punch to the uvula. Now with Amarillos!

Golden Ale – American Blonde Ale – 4.8%
A clean, crisp, refreshing, and always sessionable ale with a hint of bee hive sweetness. Urban Dictionary defines sessionable as: "the characteristic of an alcoholic drink (usually a pint of beer) which is suitable for a lengthy drinking session".

Razzberry Blonde – Raspberry Blonde Ale – 4.5%
Light, crisp, and sweet with a wet kiss of fresh raspberries.

Double IPA – American Double IPA – 7.5%
Crafted with a blend of seven American hops and a perfect balance of malty goodness, this ale’s aggressive flavor lingers like a four day old house guest. Brewed with 100% American 2-row malt, this hop goodness gets a front cabin seat on a no-expense paid dry hopping. Aromas of apricot and citrus fruits accompany a potent dank and earthy nose and body.

All kegs will be tapped by 5pm, so come enjoy a basket of crack fries with your favorite Perrin beer!
