Worldwide 10k Beer Release Celebration
The time has finally come for Koelschtrinker, bierkoning and Travlr to rate their 10,000th beers. Their local brewers have generously created special beers to mark the occasion, and they’ll celebrate simultaneously on Tuesday, August 19.
In Washington, DC the event will take place at Bluejacket Brewery at 4 PM local time, 300 Tingey Street SE: http://www.ratebeer.com/p/the-arsenal-at-bluejacket/38073/
For those who can’t join us in person, we’re working on methods to tie the celebrations together, and allow people to dial in, probably by Skype - details to follow.
Travlr’s beer is a collaboration between Terry Hawbaker and Kristen Mullen at Intangible Ales, and Greg Engert, Bobby Bump, Josh Chapman and Owen Miller at Bluejacket. “Gene Turns 10k” is a 4% abv American wild ale, soured with lacto, fermented with Brett Drei, featuring French Aramis hops. To give Travlr an incentive to enter his backlog we’ll also have barrel treatments of the base beer: “Travlr’s 11k (Chardonnay)” and “Travlr’s 12k (Cabernet Franc).”
Bierkoning’s beer was brewed by Menno Olivier and his crew at Brouwerij de Molen in Bodegraven, Netherlands. "Feuer & Wasser" is an imperial zoigl-like beer, bottom fermented (!), 8.1% abv, 35 IBU.
Koelschtrinker’s beer is a barrel aged smoked porter brewed by Sebastian Sauer of Freigeist Bierkultur and The Monarchy in Köln, Germany.
We hope you can join us!
