Summer Tap Takeover at Bar19
Bar19 is keeping it local on all beer taps
With so many quality new craft beers coming out of greater New Haven, we have decided to partner with Thimble Island Brewery on Thursday, July 23, 2015 to bring you a Summer Tap Takeover.
Thimble Island Brewing Company (web site +) - named for the cluster of islands off the coast of Branford – was founded in 2010 by Justin Gargano and Mike Fawcett who both grew up on the Connecticut shoreline. We are excited to offer their flagship American Ale, Coffee Stout, made with Willoughby's coffee beans (a local coffee roaster), and Ghost Island Double IPA.
AMERICAN ALE… STYLE: American Amber/Red Ale , ABV: 5%, IBU: 25, SRM: 11
GHOST ISLAND … STYLE: Double IPA, ABV: 7.5, IBU: 150, SRM: 9
COFFEE STOUT… STYLE: American Stout, ABV: 6%, IBU: 42, SRM: 28
A representative from the brewery will be on site to offer in-depth descriptions of each beer. Enjoy these craft beers at happy hour prices all night, paired with locally sourced dishes crafted by Executive Chef Todd Ruiz.
