On the heels of our participation in the Great Taste of the Midwest this past weekend next Friday THE WEAKLING Belgian Tripel makes its debut at our E. Wash Taproom (1444 E. Washington Avenue)! For The Weakling we use Wyeast Labs’ seasonal release Canadian/Belgian yeast strain, which originally comes from Unibroue. This is a dynamite choice for the Tripel style that showcases the malt profile along with appropriate light fruit esters (e.g. lemons and oranges) and some of its own spicy character. Also expect good balancing hop bitterness along with a bit of Saaz noble hop flavor and aroma. We brewed it once before two years ago and it was a hit, including a 4.04 rating on Untappd. 9% ABV and not weak at all (but very smooth)!
We also welcome one of Madison’s newest food carts–PERUVIAN LOCOS–to our Taproom and they’ll be out front serving their delicious South American fare from 5 to 8. Should make for some interesting food and beer pairings. Salud!
The Weakling will of course also be returning on tap at our Westport Brewhaus on Friday starting at 3, after an hiatus of almost two years (way too long for this elegant beer).
